Free Web Hosting Services And The Glitches in Them

2:08 PM 0 Comments

Recent surveys have revealed that the current number of websites actively working on the internet exceed a few million in their numbers. When we day that every single website requires web hosting services, it enables us to gain a perspective on how huge the world of web hosting services is in present times.

In fact, it would not at all be wrong to say that web hosting services are biggest online businesses in current times. It is undeniably true that web hosting services are a primary requisite to launching a successful online business, selecting the right and perfect service provider from the vast variety of available options is most often a herculean task with very low success rates.

There are scores of companies that are listed on the internet that provide web hosting services. And apart from them every one of them offers are a plethora of data plans and payment plans. So searching through these wide varieties of choices meticulously should definitely yield some result for every person.

The most common web hosting services include facilities like reseller hosting, shared hosting, dedicated or personal hosting, free web hosting, etc. Each of these services has different capacities, different hosting processes, and of course vastly different features.

The basic and bare minimum features include stuff like domain hosting, unlimited storage space, unlimited bandwidth, etc. However, the features tend to vary with the specific and individualized requirements of the hosting server. Some websites require more features than the basic ones and hence each different service has its own hosting plans that cater suitably to the needs of that specific website.

Most online business owners, however, opt for free web hosting services which although apparently is a very lucrative proposition, actually costs a lot more than they actually portray. Free web hosting services do not offer any sort of customer support facilities which has often proved it to be a menacing trouble.

Moreover, with the word ‘free’ attracting a lot of patrons, overburdened and under-performing servers are a common occurrence. Free web hosting facilities also do not have a reputation of being well maintained and updated. Their downtime, that is the maintenance time, is excessively unpredictable.

Finally, it must be mentioned come with hordes of pop-up boxes and ad banners that are really disturbing when someone is trying to get serious work done. This often causes businesses with free hosting services to lose large numbers of clients.

All the above-mentioned points are common sense stuff. This is because we need to pay a price for every little service that we get in our day to day life.

Nobody gives us even a drop of water for free. In such a world, something as expensive as space on the World Wide Web coming for free is nearly as much an improbability as believing it is foolishness. The fact that space on the internet is being doled out for free itself should be an indicator to the vast flaws involved in the entire system.
