Which Web Hosting Do I Choose- Free Or Paid
Competition between web hosts is huge, they all want to prove themselves to be the best but
nothing beats promotion like a happy customer, and I am one happy customer! Hostgator
have proven to me that you really do get what you pay for.
There are new bloggers all the time, new forums popping up and new websites being created
all the time. Everyone in this position has to start somewhere and usually the new users try
their hand at the game the cheapest way possible, free web hosts. There are free platforms
available for blogging, free hosts that let you use in house tools to create blogs, websites and
forums and you plug away happily in the knowledge that all you need to do is keep on adding
content, building a user base and have no worry about maintenance, backups or even the
server costs, it’s all free right?
What happens though if your blog just happens to suddenly get popular and suddenly you
are finding yourself with more and more unique visitors per month generating more and more
traffic for the free service to handle?
It’s been known in the past that well known blog platforms have suspended peoples accounts
demanding that because of the bandwidth being used they need to upgrade their account to
the premium service.
There have been some unlucky souls that have simply had their account deleted, and the
site pulled from service with no warning, not even given chance to back their files up. Maybe
hundreds of hours of work and money spent on SEO, promotion, advertising and maybe
even hiring content writers. All gone at the flick of a switch.
With paid hosting you don’t have to worry about any of this hassle, and can sit back knowing
that your site will be more stable, faster and will also open up your options to real website
creation. Hostgator offer some of the best options available in web hosting. free51 is indeed
basic offering almost everything but if you select the Baby Plan the options cover everything
you would ever need for your website network.
