Website Hosting

What is website hosting?

Basically, web hosting is where all your website files are stored. You could say it's the house your website lives in. In a house, you need space to store all your possessions. Your website needs space to store it's files too. Things like your images, your data, anything that appears on a website. 

Free Hosting

We all love free stuff! Is there anything wrong with free hosting? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Sure, it may appear to be saving you a few bucks initially, but you will soon see why it's a mistake. Let's save you that trouble and let you know what the problem with free or cheap hosting is.

  • Slow website speed
    • Studies have shown that most people will abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load
    • If you go with free hosting, it will be slow and that will significantly lower traffic to your site 
  • ADS!
    • Because you're not paying for your hosting, the company has to make money some way, and the way they do that is by adding third-party ads on your site whenever they want
    • It looks unprofessional and terrible on your site to have a bunch of external ads and you're not even getting the benefit of moolah for it. Talk about a lose-lose situation!
  • Your SEO (search engine optimisation) will be significantly affected
    • In this day and age, SEO is becoming increasingly important for online marketing
    • SEO puts your business ahead of your competition
    • It could end up costing you a lot of money to fix your SEO problem
  • No security or regular backups
    • We've all had a moment when we didn't do a backup and lost everything.. It's the worst. Imagine not backing up your website and losing all your content.. No thank you
    • Not having good security means it will be easy to hack in to your site and that will cost money to fix
  • No support or good customer service
    • In reality, there is a demand for web hosts, even paid ones. Knowing that, you can imagine the amount of clients these free hosting companies have. Unfortunately, because you're not paying, no company will have good support.
    • This means if/when something goes wrong like the server crashing, basically, bad luck
