In the world of the internet, hosting is king! Without it you wouldn’t have a web site, email, Facebook, Google or any of the joys the internet has to offer. With that said, there are thousand of web hosting companies trying to fight for your business. Some of them are cheap, some are expensive and some are even free!
Who you decide to host your web sites with is ultimately your decision, but being aware of the differences between free hosting and paid hosting is something everyone should know about. In this post we are going to highlight the differences between free and paid hosting services, while also featuring the list of top 25 free hosting companies in the web market today.
If you’ve ever wanted to start a blog or web site of your own but didn’t have the start up money for a domain name and a hosting package, then free hosting services are probably an excellent choice for you. Here is a quick breakdown of each.
As you can see, both free and paid hosting services are very similar. From a business stand point, if you are going to create a site that you plan on getting a lot of traffic from, or sending paid advertising to for cpa arbitrage, you are likely going to want to go with a paid hosting plan to solidify the security and uptime of your site.
If you are more of a newbie and looking to start your first site and not really sure where you want to go with it, or have no idea how to design and upload content, a free hosting service would be your best option.
