As a Blogger I know that every one wants to spend as much less amount to run their blog. Thanks to Google that they have provided an awesome platform of blogger.com so that everyone could create their blog without spending a single penny. Coming back to the Topic, to continue your blog you have to pay for Hosting. Because of this big reason many bloggers start their blog with free hosting, believe me free hosting is just a crap they will just withdraw all the promises they do in their features. Instead of free hosting you can go for Blogger.
So I am here to share some Benefits of premium hosting over Free hosting.
In order to provide free hosting no one can provide you unlimited Bandwith and Space, they must add some limits to provide free hosting to everyone. Also they limit you in other things like you cant host unlimited domains. If your blog reach bandwith limit then no one will be able to access your blog, and if it last longer it will de-index your site from Search engines.
On the other hand Hosts like “Hostgator” give your unlimited hosting without restrictions.
Another major risk of free hosting is that your blog/website has always lack of security as free hosts never focus on your security. There are high chances that something will go wrong sooner or later.
Paid hosting is completely different they run advance security software tackle with disasters. You can trust on Premium and Famous hosts which has been known and trusted by many people.
Similarly free hosts use slow connection line which will provide low loading speed and bad user experience. Big loading time effects SEO badly and will throw your SERP at last.
Whereas Premium hosting use premium connection which will give faster loading time and thus better user experience.
One-Click Script Install
Free hosting usually doesn’t have features of one click Script installer, resulting you may have to manually download, upload install the script which is very annoying.
But many Premium hosts have one Click Script Install feature with the help of Softaculous, Fantastico etc.
The biggest threat for free hosting user is that their account can be suspended with/without any reason thus all the files and databases will be lost and probably cannot be recovered. Free hosts have rights to suspend your account and you can’t question.
On the other hand Premium Hosting promises you that they will backup your data, compensate with server down time. There are very few chances of suspension in Premium hosting (Suspension might be done if you violate their terms and condition.)
Again another big help that you get from Premium hosting that most them Provide you with Live 24×7 online support, they also have features to submit ticket.
And in free host as you know there is no major support system, they don’t have live chat support . Even your Help tickets are neglected or unanswered by them.
I was too using free hosting in earlier stage of my blogging carrier but sooner I got many problems like Downtime, Server outage, Poor support and less bandwith, Space for my website. Even I was having problem to upgrade my WordPress version.
According to me free hosting is just a crap and if you are serious for blogging, close your eyes and go for Premium hosting. Spend some bucks and go with popular hosts, believe me they will give you awesome features.
