Should you opt for free or paid hosting?

By Timothy Jarman |

More and more hosting services appear on the market and they state they are offered free of charge. Since you can get hosting for free, do you really need to work with a dedicated hosting service anymore? Why should you pay for hosting when you can have it for free? Well, it turns out that free hosting might not be the best option out there.


While free hosting is offered free of charge, you do pay for it in some way. Ads will be displayed on your website and you will not get any money from them. Plus, usually you don’t really have any control over the ad placement, which makes the entire situation even more challenging when compared to how it really is.


On top of that, you don’t really have that much choice in regards to anything. You are unable to place Google AdWords in order to monetize your website, you won’t be able to do affiliate marketing in here either just because your customers will be put off by ads that may or may not be relevant to your website.


Free hosting isn’t reliable as well, the free hosts are known to have the most downtime in the industry. So it’s not exactly a reliable solution nor one that will impress your customers for the longer term. It’s easy to use, true, but the value that you receive might not be as good as you expect it to be in the end.


Paid hosting is quite the opposite. You have complete control over your website, you know where it’s hosted and you also receive constant support. You can also place ads or not, it all comes down to you and the features you need. The great thing here is that you are always in control and you never have to worry about ads or their performance ever again. It’s a very professional approach designed to offer a very good quality and value in the longer term.

Thanks to paid hosting, you get to have the experience you want, the way you want without any intrusions. You don’t have to cope with restrictions or rules that might harm your website’s performance. Also, the paid hosts are faster, better and a lot more reliable. They are offering the service that your business needs and the value they bring in front is second to none. That shows the great quality and professionalism delivered by paid hosting and the outcome does pay off immensely due to that reason alone.


So, if you really want to get a very good hosting performance, you should consider investing in a paid host. They are the only ones to offer quality, reliability and professionalism in one great package. Just go ahead and check out the various paid hosting options out there. They can deliver you all the virtual servers, managed hosting or bespoke servers that you need at all times. Free hosting shouldn’t be bothered with, especially if you want to run a professional business!
