Free Web Hosting

You want to host your site for free, but where do you do that without banner commercials being incorporated on your web site? Is that even feasible? It turns out that it is viable indeed, although there is a very small number of providers offering free web hosting services without advertisements.

My newfound free hosting solutions provider

A short while ago I came across 100 Webspace, a United States-based web hosting distributor, which provides cost-free web hosting packages. The chief reason why they can supply cost-free hosting plans without any adverts is the circumstance that you can create just one single charge-free hosting account with them, whereas hosts that put banner ads on your websites permit you to have as many free-of-charge web hosting user accounts as you want.

Free website hosting limits

Lots of free web hosting firms discourage the use of their free-of-charge hosting packages for file or image hosting purposes solely and the use of traffic for inline linking purposes. A lot of free web hosting service providers forbid hotlinking or direct linking and the inclusion of different computer file types. 100 Webspace makes no exception and forbids remote linking by default.

File size restrictions

Other typical limitations imposed on charge-free web hosting accounts by free hosting companies are associated with the size of the files. For example, 100 Webspace does not permit users to upload files whose size exceeds five hundred kilobytes or large audio and video files. Even if you attempt to upload a big file or a disallowed computer file type, you will not succeed. You can upload more sizeable files and bypass this limitation if you upgrade to a paid web hosting package. 100 Webspace provides amazingly cheap web hosting packages in case you need more resources.

File quotas

One additional free web hosting account restriction is connected with the amount of files you can accommodate inside the web hosting account. Paid web hosting plans usually involve file quotas as well, but cost-free web hosting accounts include much, much smaller file quotas. Let's take as an example the charge-free web hosting solution offered by 100 Webspace.com. You can only stash five thousand files in your free-of-charge account and have to shift to a paid web site hosting package if you choose to store more. The free-of-charge web site hosting plan does not offer an electronic mail service too, so this type of web hosting service is mainly good for testing purposes or if you host a family-oriented, not-for-profit page, which requires an extremely small amount of web traffic and has very few files. If your small web site project begins to increase, though, you do not necessarily have to change providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your web hosting plan to a paid one without the need to change web servers.
