Just a random thought in my mind, although a lot of people is looking for free hosting but do you really want a free hosting for your business or personal use and expect it to be giving you return?
Let me know your thoughts. ;)

I think it is just important for newbies who didn't have a good budget for starting a new website.
For more people are doing online business, they always go with a paid service as paid domain name or hosting plans, and yes, I am in one of them :)
I remember I used a free hosting service was over 12+ years ago.

Hello,

Better to have a resource by paying for the same than the free hosting.

Thanks

When hiring a web hosting, we probably do not pay much attention to what we buy since we will be looking to save money as much as possible. Many choose to have a free hosting and thus save costs. However, if you choose to have a free hosting you cannot demand it to work 100% every day. Nor can you complain if your website disappears one day since it's free. As a general rule, you do not have a guarantee of anything. Plus, customer support is virtually non-existent.

I'm not sure why anyone would take the risk when there are plans available for $5 or less per month where you're more than likely to get better support when needed and performance from the server.

Well, I would understand if someone would like to get a trial of what web hosting feels like before really buying them. But there are also a lot of web hosting providers giving money-back guarantee if you don't want to use it.

Free Hosting services is one such example of many that we really need for free and is the ideal option for those webmasters out there searching for a space in the world of web to call their own. If you are planning to run a small business then you should go with free hosting services. But as far as performance, a free web host is never going to give you the best level of performance especially when you run a well known and high traffic website. Trust me you will never prefer to baffle your potential clients with slow loading pages, frequent downtime and constrained bandwidth limit.

I can agree with webmaster just need to have a space in the big world of web, but for business, isn't it you need to start with the right foot? Getting a free hosting with low specs and expect to upgrade later on? Your customer might even run away before your business can continue with better hosting. I strongly believe you get what you pay for.

Not really because they often turn out to be limited trials. After a while you are asked to pay for it. In most cases, this price is usually way higher than normal services. If you added a credit card during signup, then they can charge you without giving you any warning.

In general, the use of free hosting for your site is a good idea if you want to get a free hosting in order to learn and practice using the control panel hosting or training on the use of a particular script. Other than that you must have paid hosting.
