I am always trying to know about the resources of internet – those I can get for free. Because I love free and open source things. So when I am collecting information about the hosting services, I noticed that – most of the blogger doesn’t like free hosting and nobody said they are good. That’s interesting, because still there are a huge number of people who are using free hosting. My short discussion is about that.
These are hosting that offers space without cost to you. Actually it’s not like that. They put adverts in banner or text format in your website to sum up the cost. Sometimes they use pop-ups too. So this is the general idea of free hosting.
What you get is a amount of 200 MB to 1 GB space in these kind of free hosting and there is a limit of data transfer rate within 1 GB to 5GB per month. That’s what most of the free hosting is offering. And even you can’t have all the facilities a paid hosting offers – in these free hosting. Some of them may not give you to add your own domain. Or don’t give you FTP access. And the most important thing is there loading time and down time.
OK – there’s no doubt about that a paid hosting is better than a free one. But what if someone give you the paid hosting in a limited form for free. And this limit is better than any of the free one around the web!!! Yes it’s true. you can enjoy the facilities of a paid hosting in the free hosting that is offered by Byethost. Let’s talk about it.
Byethost is offering two type of free hosting. Vista panel and cPanel. Both are great. You can get up to 5 GB space and 200 GB data transfer in Vista Panel hosting. Addon domains, Park Domains, MX Records, Sub domains and FTP access all are included there. Go to 000space or byethost.com to check the full details. I am quite impressed with their options.
Again there is cPanel hosting – the best I think. You can check it at megabyet.net. A fully professional cPanel hosting. No advertisement, no popups and it’s for lifetime. How could you miss?
How They Afford It?
As I told you- nothing is free. So how they afford this kind of hosting? I have mailed to their support and got good answers. I did following questions and get these answers.
Question 1: How you managed to give away this kind of hosting? I mean how do you afford it?
Answer: We started by offering free hosting using advertising to support us, over time we have had many people upgrade to premium hosting, these monies from upgraded hosting accounts can be used to subsidize the cost of the free hosting.
Question 2: What is your benefit from this?
Answer: Through people upgrading we can build a larger network for all peoples benefits.
Question 3: How much free a person can get?
Answer: This is all subjective to the ‘load’ that a site creates, but if your site is not causing any adverse load, then you can host here for free forever.
These were their answer. That’s a clear and good response. So if you are looking for a hosting without advertisement and want the facilities like paid hosting, I am recommending you to Byethost. They are simply great.
