Hosting is the main thing in starting a blog or website. We call storage as hosting. Hosting is like cloud storage But having some support of PHP, MYSQL etc. Now a days hosting is not cheap. It is cheap for a big blogger, But beginners like me cannot pay for hosting. So we search for Free hosting providers. Free hosting is very good for beginners. It is not used for professional blog. Because it is having some limitations. First we will see what are the pros and cons of free hosting sites.
1. Free hosting sites are like free trail. Paid hosts won’t give a free trail. So new bloggers use free hosts for some experience. New bloggers won’t know how to maintain a wordpress blog. So they must try free hosting. After you got some experience in blogging, then get a paid host. So free hosting sites will give you some experience.
2. Some free hosts will offer you a free subdomain. Subdomains are not good for SEO. But we are not using free host for professional blog. This is just for trail. so free hosting sites will give you a free domain
1. Free hosting sites won’t give unlimited storage and bandwidth. If your bandwidth or storage limit is exceeded, your website will crash or won’t open. This is a major limitation of free hosting providers.
2. Free hosting sites will take advantage of your blog. They place some Ads in youd blog to make money. Those ads are not revelant for your blog. if any visitor visited your blog, Ads are annoying and your visitor left your blog. So now we will see Top 5 free hosting providers with free domain.
