C. Internal happenings of free website or blog :-
There is nothing free in this world. When you start a blog or website with a free hosting / blogging service, you don’t get your own domain.You get something like bloggerztech.blogspot.com or bloggerstech.wordpress.com (where there are a million other blogs/websites at blogspot.com or wordpress.com ) and you don’t actually own the blog. If you want your own domain then must pay a little more than normal rate of any domain registrant. If you ever do decide to move to another service then must pay them transfer fees, you have no way to take your readers with you, because you have no control over the site.Some time ,it is seen that a few services has been locked their services with out prior notice.So your hard work goes to web dustbin .
D. Major disadvantages of Free Web Hosting services:-
i. Limited Bandwidth
ii. Limited web page space
iii. Lack of adding interactive features.
iv. Search engines often ignore them .
v. Audience may doubt credibility .
vi. Hard to remember web address.
v. No guarantees of site availability and longevity
vi. No branded emails addresses.
vii. Poor help and support options
viii. May not be free forever
Free web hosting is not a new idea but it has limitation in use , so my notion in this matter that pay a few buck to establish a better online presence with your own paying hosting service with custom domain which can help to create a brand name in internet world.However it is seen that many free hosts are fly-by-night operations and care little for the long term well being of users files.
