Free or paid hosting - Advantages and Disadvantages

  • mail-icon

Often our clients ask: "Why should I pay for web hosting when I can get it for free?"

Well, the answer is not simple. Your decision to use free or paid web hosting depends on what your needs are, based on the type of website you want to have. You should know that, business websites, where you want to make money (lots of money) are not the same thing as a personal blog, where you just want to write about your daily lives. The goal is totally different.

If you want to win a car race, do you use expensive Ferrari or cheap city car? On the other hand, if you go to the supermarket, do you use a Ferrari or a city car? There are different options for different goals.

And the same is for a web hosting.

So, first you have to understand what do you need, then pay attention to the advantages and disadvantages of free and paid web hosting.
