Growing internet craze has made it a marketing platform. Business today are trying to make the most out of it. Web hosting services specially the free ones are hot favourites. Capitalising on this craze, companies offering free hosting for content have rose to unprecedented numbers. For clients who are new in the business, the free services offer is tempting and hard to ignore. Reality is rather different. Hosting services can prove to be frustrating for some.
Like all free things which cost nothing but comes with disadvantages, free web hosting services are no different. Since the hosting website holds more than just your company’s product and information, it can often be full of annoying stuffs. This can surely be frustrating when you lose potential customers just for the sake of saving money. Also, since you have no control over the hosting services, if it all goes off service, you can do nothing. Another problem is that hosting services provide sub domain name to users attached to the site. This causes trouble while checking for results through search engines. At times, domain names of sites which were unavailable or useless were offered to users,which turned out to be disastrous for business.
The cons have made people switch to relatively secured web hosting services. And businesses do not mind paying extra bucks for secured services. Today hundreds services are available to make a choice from. Now, the clients can choose according to their needs. Great storage capacity and bandwidth are available with some service providers. They are of great help to people who are tight on budget and with no commercial aspiration.
