Web Hosting: Free Vs Paid
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Building your own website is exciting and fun. I’ve said that many times before. But, before you can get your website online, you need to have it hosted – somewhere. There’s been a lot of discussion about web hosting and what the difference is between free vs. paid hosting. The answer depends on the reason your site exists.

If your purpose for your site is purely to make a website that keeps your family up to date, or a family photo page, then I would say free web hosting is the way to go. In that realm, there are many companies who provide free hosting and even a free domain name. However, the domain that you receive is simply either a sub-domain or a folder that resides on the company’s main site. The issuing company will provide the web address. In addition, you will be restricted for the most part to using templates provided by that company. If you want to design your own pages, this might be too restrictive. It’s still free, nonetheless.

There are other, less restrictive hosting services you can enter into that are free, but come with the provision that you must purchase your own domain name. That’s fine, again, as long as you’re ok with the restrictions they put on your creativity with content and graphics. In fact, there currently are thousands and thousands of websites that are setup just that way. Truthfully, the really good ones are hard to detect, but it makes me wonder if all that effort is worth the trouble.

Why not have your site hosted with a company who will give total control over your creativity and design? Many companies exist that do just that. Some charge a fee, and some don’t. Always keep in mind that if you’re getting it for free, you’re not getting all that you could had you joined a service that gives you total control over your website design, creativity, and function. Now we’re narrowing the field a lot by trying to find a hosting company that will provide you the control you need – for free. To me, it’s like finding the proverbial needle-in-a-haystack. That being the case, I think I would go with a web hosting company that is affordable, yet provides you with total control.

I would be willing to bet that you are very serious about Internet marketing. Why? Because you are reading this article to the end! I also believe that you are struggling to make it in this business. That’s perfectly fine. There are many more people struggling, than there are “making” it. That being the case, I strongly suggest that you try to get the most for your efforts. For example, if you could find unlimited, free web hosting, training like you’ve never seen, and a plethora of other benefits designed just for people like you and me, would you be interested? Trust me on this; it’s out there and it’s closer than you think.
