Free-of-Charge Web Site Hosting
You want to host your web site for free, but where do you do that without banner ads being added to your web site? Is that even conceivable? It turns out that it is possible actually, although there are very few hosting service providers delivering free web site hosting services without ads.
My recently found free web host
I recently found 50Webs, a UK-based hosting provider, which offers free-of-cost hosting packages. The primary reason why they can provide cost-free hosting accounts without any banner ads is the circumstance that you can have only one free-of-cost web hosting user account with them, whereas web hosting service providers that display adverts on your sites allow you to have as many free-of-cost hosting user accounts as you decide.
Free web hosting restrictions
Lots of free hosting suppliers ban the use of their free website hosting plans for file or image hosting purposes solely and the use of traffic for inline linking purposes. A lot of free web hosting suppliers prohibit hotlinking or inline linking and the use of many computer file extensions. 50Webs makes no exception and forbids inline linking by default.
File size limitations
Other typical restrictions forced on free-of-cost website hosting accounts by free web hosting companies are connected with the size of the files. For example, 50Webs does not permit users to upload files whose size is more than five hundred kilobytes or big media files. Even if you attempt to upload a large file or a disallowed file format, you will not succeed. You can upload larger files and evade this restriction if you upgrade to a paid web site hosting package. 50Webs delivers pretty affordable website hosting plans in case you need more resources.
One additional free web site hosting account limitation is connected with the amount of files you can store inside the hosting account. Paid web hosting plans normally have file quotas too, but free-of-cost website hosting accounts include much, much smaller file quotas. Let's take as an example the free web hosting solution delivered by 50Webs. You can only store five thousand files in your cost-free web hosting account and have to shift to a professional paid hosting account if you desire to store more. The free-of-charge web site hosting plan does not include an email service too, so this kind of service is mainly suitable for testing purposes or if you host a family-oriented, not-for-profit web page, which needs a very small amount of traffic and contains very few files. If your small website project begins to expand, however, you do not necessarily need to switch hosting service providers, because there also is the option to upgrade your website hosting package to a paid one without ever having to change servers.
