If you visit a lot of webmaster forums, you will find that this topic comes up a lot regarding the amount of storage you get etc. However, this is a business forum so lets look on the business side. Do you think free web hosting is good or bad for businesses to use? I personally think that businesses should avoid using free website hosting companies for many reasons. Firstly, the support. If your website goes down and you get an awful lot of business on a daily basis, you will be losing money. You would expect to be able to phone up and in a couple of minutes, your website would be working again. However, for a lot of free hosting companies, this isn't always the case. Sometimes you are expected to wait 24 hours or even more as you aren't their priority. This is because they want you to either upgrade to premium or simply couldn't afford to hire enough people to give good quality support. This isn't always the case for every free web hosting company but a lot of the time it is. Some say you will get the lowest priority support but if you pay a pound a month, you can get a reply within minutes. That is just an example and it would most likely be more then a pound a month. Anyway, the other downside is advertisements. Not all free website hosting companies force advertisements but a lot do and they can disrupt your design etc. Anyway, over to you.
