Free Hosting

You would like to host your web site for free, but where do you do that without banner commercials being incorporated on your website? Is that even feasible? It turns out that it is conceivable indeed, although there is a very small number of hosting providers delivering free hosting plans without advertisements.

My newfound free web hosting packages provider

Not long ago I discovered Free Hostia, a US-registered hosting firm, which supplies free web hosting solutions. The chief reason why they can furnish free-of-cost web hosting packages without any banner advertisements is the fact that you can maintain only one single cost-free hosting account with them, whereas providers that force banner commercials on your web sites allow you to maintain as many free web site hosting user accounts as you like.

Free website hosting limits

A lot of free web site hosting suppliers disallow the use of their free web site hosting packages just for file or image hosting purposes and the use of bandwidth for hotlinking purposes. A lot of free web hosting corporations disallow hotlinking or direct linking and the use of many computer file formats. Free Hostia makes no exception and bans inline linking by default.

File size limitations

Other typical limitations forced on charge-free web hosting accounts by free hosting firms are related to the size of the files. For example, Free Hostia does not allow customers to upload files whose size is greater than five hundred kilobytes or sizeable media files. Even if you try to upload a large file or a forbidden computer file format, you will not succeed. You can upload more sizeable files and dodge this limitation if you upgrade to a paid website hosting account. Free Hostia provides astonishingly reasonably priced web hosting solutions in case you need extra system resources.

File quotas

One additional free web site hosting account limitation is connected with the amount of files you can host inside the hosting account. Paid web hosting packages normally involve file quotas too, but free-of-charge hosting accounts have much, much smaller file quotas. Let's take as an example the free-of-charge web site hosting plan offered by Free Hostia. You can only accommodate five thousand files in your charge-free website hosting account and need to shift to a professional paid web hosting package if you choose to host more. The free website hosting plan does not offer a mail service too, so this sort of web hosting service is mostly suitable for testing purposes or if you own a family-oriented, non-profit web portal, which needs a very small amount of bandwidth and contains very few files. If your tiny web site project begins to increase, though, you do not necessarily need to swap web hosting providers, since there also is the option to upgrade your package to a paid one without ever having to change web servers.
