I suggest you to stay away from companies which offer free web hosting services because you will have bad uptime and speed. Moreover, some free hosts require you to place a banner on your pages, others display a window that pops up every time a page on your site loads, while still others impose an advertising frame on your site. As a matter of fact, I advise you to deal with paid hosting services like, for instance, a2hosting.com because this company will provide you with good hosting services at cheap price.

It depends on what website do you want to have, how big it is, and if you gonna monetize it. If it's just a simple personal website without big expatations from it.. or you just start an small website, you can choose free hosting. What it's the point having a paid hosting, if you're a total beginner in sites and you just started to learn ?

Now.. it's very clear that what it's free... hmmm... it's free.. you cannot compare it with paid hosting. You cannot compare the uptime, the offered services, etc. There are free hosting companies that are in the business for over 5-7 years, and you can be sure that it cannot dissapear overnight, like someone said before me.

On the other hand, if your website is made to make some money for you, and you are serious in your start to make a succesfull website, you can find in no time very cheap hosting plans (5-7-10 $ / month) , affordable prices, at some big hosting companeies, that fight each other for customers and make "you can not refuse" offers. Godaddy, hostgator, just to name a few.

Never trust any company that offers free web hosting. Of course, there are some free web hosts in which you get terrible customer support for being a free hosting account customer. Most of the free web hosts say they are free and ask you to pay them some $$ as one time set up fee. Most of the free hosts disappear with all your website files, once they have figured out there aren't enough customers to upgrade their free account to paid account. In other words, If you want to deal with a lot problems as far as your site is concerned, Then go for a free web host.

I suggest you should only go for a paid web host after doing some research as to how reliable the company is, how long they have been in the business, what's their uptime, what reviews they are getting on various forums etc.

Dont go for Free Hosting

Yes, that's right don't go for any company that offers free web hosting, because you are going to waste your time behind this, they just claim that they offering free web hosting but after hosting service will not be available in free package they will not even help you in hosting your site, instead i suggest you go for paid hosting because you just need to pay about 100$ for a year and the service is good. And also get an SSL certificate for site for making it Hacker Safe.... I have found one good site for that: thesslstore.com

Don't go with free hosting, sooner or later your website will be down.

hey, pal. take their advise: never trust these free web hosting companies. In the end, you'll regret having a free-hosted site. Analyze why you are putting up a site in the first place? If your goal is to monetize your site, then it will do you good if you try to have cheap webhosting for a minimum fee.

In my point of view paid hosting is much better than the free hosting, but we need to be cautious while choosing for the paid hosting.

There is no need to choose a host with the "fastest" ticket response time, but choose one who you feel you communicate well with.

My problem with this question is that although I'm willing to answer it, my experience with cheap web hosts have not been entirely favorable, so it is difficult to recommend the cheap ones where I have actually placed sites on.

You should pick the top website hosting company and join in their money making businesses online.
