Which do you think is better to use, free hosting or paid hosting? If you are using either, what are the pros and cons your hosting? I am using a free hosting for my forum and I can't really say I have a lot of complaints about it. It has everything that I need to run my forum and I've never had my forum crash or have any down time. The only bad thing it the advertisements on my forum but I know that's how I'm getting the hosting for free is because of those advertisements. However, there is a way around that. You can purchase credits from the hosting service and you can use those credits for a variety of things and one of those things is having the advertisements removed from your forum. What about you guys? What are your opinions on free or paid hosting? Which do you think is better?
