Free web hosting has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and I for sure can see why. Running a website can be expensive, let alone running a business. Cutting costs can often be essential in ensuring you can stay afloat. So, if you can get free hosting, why wouldn’t you?
The trouble I’ve found is that a lot of the advertised free web hosting isn’t exactly free. There’s often restrictions and limitations on storage, data, bandwidth, etc. and the web hosts themselves aren’t much to shout about.
Personally, I would avoid free hosting altogether. In terms of alternatives, I would suggest you pay a bit extra and choose a hosting company such as SiteGround or Hostinger. Like with many things in life, you get what you pay for and hosting is no different.
