First we will talk about free web companies so that you may come to know why it can be a wrong decision for you to hire a free host. A website host that is providing you a free service might not charge you as the service is for free but what he will do is display the advertisement on your website which becomes the source of earning for the service provider. You remain in a false impression that the company is providing you free service and making your web site for free, also posting it on internet by providing you space. Beside this company befools you in many other ways, they provide you less bandwidth, because of which the traffic on your site is very less. No customer support is given by the free web hosts.

They will provide you a good bandwidth rate which will of 50 MB for personal and 500 MB for the small companies as there is no sense for paying more than what you use. The paid service provider will provide you the best service by customer support which is most important for the customer, as in the case of emergency lots time gets saved if the problem is solved online.
