Kent, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 23, 2011 -- I'm sure you have heard the old saying, 'you get what you pay for' well this is certainly true when it comes to web hosting. But by all means, choose free web hosting for your website if it is just a website for personal use and you do not plan to make money from it. Although paying for a web hosting service would be advisable for those who want to make their website a huge success and are planning to make some money from it. Here are just a few good reasons not to choose free web hosting.
* There are many restrictions in place with a lot of these free web hosting companies in terms of what you can and can't do. You may only have a certain amount of disk space for your website and this will means there will be a limit on the amount of content you will be able to put on there. And the design of your site will probably be limited with only a few themes to choose from. You may be only able to choose between a number of cheesy themes that look very unprofessional.
* When it comes to monetising your site, you may be restricted. Some of the free options will not allow you to put up advertising and this will make it hard for you to make any money from the website.
* You have very little control when you choose a free option. You could find that when you wake up tomorrow that your website and all the data are gone because the web hosting provider has just disappeared. It is not like you can complain about this because you were getting the service for free. With paid hosting you have far more freedom and control.
Any person thinking about venturing out into internet marketing ought to have SEO hosting set up beforehand.
