Free Hosting

You would like to host your site for free, but where do you do that without adverts being incorporated on your website? Is that even feasible? It turns out that it is viable indeed, even though there is a very small number of web hosting service providers offering free-of-cost website hosting plans without ads.

My newly discovered free web hosting plans provider

I recently stumbled upon 50webs Web Hosting, a United States-registered web hosting corporation, which provides free hosting plans. The prime reason why they can deliver free hosting accounts without any banner ads is the fact that you can set up just one single free web site hosting user account with them, whereas service providers that put adverts on your sites permit you to have as many free-of-cost hosting user accounts as you like.

Free web hosting limitations

Many free web site hosting corporations disallow the use of their cost-free web site hosting accounts just for file or image hosting purposes and the use of bandwidth for hotlinking purposes. Many free web hosting firms disallow hotlinking or remote linking and the inclusion of many file types. 50webs Web Hosting is no exception and forbids remote linking by default.

File size limitations

Other common restrictions forced on free-of-cost hosting accounts by free web hosting suppliers are associated with the file size. For example, 50webs Web Hosting does not allow clients to upload files greater than five hundred kilobytes or big audio and video files. Even if you try to upload a sizeable file or a banned file type, you will not succeed. You can upload bigger files and evade this limitation if you upgrade to a professional paid web hosting account. 50webs Web Hosting provides rather affordably priced website hosting packages should you need extra system resources.

File quotas

One additional free website hosting account restriction is related to the amount of files you can host inside the account. Paid web site hosting plans normally include file quotas too, but charge-free website hosting accounts have much more limited file quotas. Let's take as an example the free-of-cost hosting solution offered by 50webs Web Hosting. You can only store 5000 files in your charge-free account and have to upgrade to a paid web hosting package if you choose to host more. The cost-free plan does not include an electronic mail service as well, so this kind of web hosting service is mostly good for testing purposes or if you have a family-oriented, not-for-profit web portal, which needs a very small amount of bandwidth and has a very small number of files. If your little website project begins to increase, though, you do not necessarily have to switch hosting providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your web site hosting package to a paid one without the need to switch web hosting servers.
