Should we consider a free web hosting for our website?
It mainly depends on your current and future web site goals to select an appropriate web hosting plan for your needs. It should consider the following factors during the web design process:
1. Free web hosting is usually supported by advertisements which is bad for your company image especially if you cannot control the type and numbers of the advertisements.
2. Free web hosting has bandwidth limits. For a large scale web site with e-commerce function or a significant amount of traffic, it may better avoid free hosting.
3. Free web hosting is bad for search engine position. Many of the free hosting services limit your ability to control the domain resulting in a poor-quality domain name. Moreover, major search engines are unlikely to attribute authority to web sites hosted on free web hosting services.
