Free Hosting

You wish to host your site for free, but where do you do that without banners being embedded into your site? Is that even feasible? It turns out that it is possible actually, although there is a very small number of service providers delivering free hosting solutions without advertisements.

My recently discovered free hosting accounts provider

Not long ago I came across 50webs, a United States-based hosting firm, which supplies charge-free web hosting accounts. The principal reason why they can supply free-of-cost website hosting solutions without any adverts is the fact that you can have only one free web hosting user account with them, whereas web hosting suppliers that put banner commercials on your web sites permit you to open as many free-of-charge web hosting accounts as you desire.

Free website hosting limitations

Lots of free website hosting vendors discourage the use of their cost-free web site hosting plans for file or image hosting purposes solely and the use of bandwidth for inline linking purposes. A lot of free hosting providers prohibit hotlinking or direct linking and the inclusion of various file formats. 50webs is no exception and disallows inline linking by default.

File size limits

Other typical limitations set on charge-free hosting accounts by free hosting companies are associated with the size of the files. For instance, 50webs does not allow customers to upload files whose size is bigger than 500 kilobytes or sizeable audio and video files. Even if you attempt to upload a large file or a forbidden file format, you will not succeed. You can upload bigger files and evade this restriction if you upgrade to a professional paid hosting package. 50webs provides remarkably cheap hosting plans in case you need extra system resources.

File quotas

Another free hosting account restriction is associated with the amount of files you can host inside the account. Paid hosting accounts usually include file quotas too, but free-of-cost web hosting accounts include much more limited file quotas. Let's take as an example the free web site hosting solution supplied by 50webs. You can only have 5000 files in your free-of-charge website hosting account and need to switch to a professional paid hosting package if you would like to store more. The free-of-cost web site hosting package does not include an electronic mail service too, so this sort of hosting service is predominantly appropriate for testing purposes or if you host a personal, not-for-profit website, which needs a very small amount of bandwidth and has very few files. If your tiny web site project starts to enlarge, however, you do not necessarily need to swap hosting providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your hosting package to a paid one without the need to swap servers.
