Free Web Hosting

You wish to host your web site for free, but where do you do that without web banners being forced upon your website? Is that even possible? It turns out that it is possible actually, even though there are very few hosting firms furnishing free web hosting solutions without advertisements.

My newfound free web hosting supplier

Not long ago I came across 100 Webspace, a United States-registered host, which supplies free-of-cost hosting packages. The principal reason why they can supply free-of-cost hosting packages without any banner adverts is the circumstance that you can set up just one single cost-free website hosting user account with them, whereas web hosting vendors that incorporate advertisements on your sites allow you to maintain as many charge-free web hosting user accounts as you decide.

Free website hosting limitations

Many free web hosting corporations discourage the use of their free-of-cost web hosting plans for file or image hosting purposes only and the use of traffic for hotlinking purposes. Lots of free hosting firms ban hotlinking or remote linking and the inclusion of many computer file extensions. 100 Webspace is no exception and disallows hotlinking by default.

File size limitations

Other common restrictions imposed on free-of-cost hosting accounts by free hosting distributors are related to the size of the files. For instance, 100 Webspace does not allow users to upload files whose size is greater than 500 kilobytes or sizeable media files. Even if you attempt to upload a large file or a disallowed computer file format, you will not succeed. You can upload more sizeable files and evade this restriction if you upgrade to a paid website hosting plan. 100 Webspace supplies pretty affordably priced hosting accounts should you require additional resources.

File quotas

Another free website hosting account limitation is related to the amount of files you can accommodate inside the account. Paid website hosting accounts typically involve file quotas too, but free-of-cost hosting plans include much more limited file quotas. Let's take as an example the free-of-cost hosting package offered by 100 Webspace. You can only accommodate five thousand files in your free-of-charge account and have to upgrade to a paid hosting plan if you decide to host more. The charge-free hosting package does not offer an email service as well, so this kind of web hosting service is primarily applicable for testing purposes or if you own a personal, non-profit online portal, which needs a very small amount of traffic and contains a very small number of files. If your small web site project begins to increase, however, you do not necessarily have to switch web hosting providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your web site hosting plan to a paid one without ever needing to swap web servers.
