Free Web Hosting

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

My recently discovered free hosting vendor

A short time ago I found 100 Webspace, a United States-based web hosting services provider, which delivers charge-free hosting solutions. The chief reason why they can furnish free-of-charge web site hosting packages without any banner ads is the fact that you can maintain only one single cost-free website hosting user account with them, whereas hosting distributors that incorporate banner adverts on your web sites allow you to have as many charge-free web site hosting accounts as you wish.

Free web hosting limits

A lot of free website hosting firms forbid the use of their free-of-charge web site hosting plans just for file or image hosting purposes and the use of bandwidth for inline linking purposes. Lots of free web hosting providers forbid hotlinking or remote linking and the inclusion of different file formats. 100 Webspace is no exception and bans hotlinking by default.

File size limits

Other typical restrictions placed on free web hosting accounts by free web hosting vendors are associated with the size of the files. For example, 100 Webspace does not permit customers to upload files greater than five hundred kilobytes or big media files. Even if you attempt to upload a sizeable file or a forbidden file format, you will not succeed. You can upload more sizeable files and dodge this restriction if you upgrade to a paid web hosting package. 100 Webspace furnishes astonishingly cheap web site hosting solutions should 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 website hosting account. Paid web site hosting packages normally include file quotas too, but charge-free hosting plans include much, much smaller file quotas. Let's take as an example the cost-free web site hosting package furnished by 100 Webspace. You can only have 5000 files in your charge-free web hosting account and have to shift to a paid hosting package if you need to host more. The free-of-cost hosting plan does not include an email service as well, so this kind of web hosting service is mostly appropriate for testing purposes or if you host a family-oriented, not-for-profit online portal, which needs an extremely small amount of web traffic and includes a very small number of files. If your little website project starts to grow, though, you do not necessarily need to switch web hosting service providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your package to a paid one without ever needing to swap servers.
