- The first is to use free hosting provided by the ISP (the company that pays for Internet service). Not all Internet providers offer this service. This type of hosting will place web pages within a main URL (address) for example if the free web host’s address is www.ispsname.com, your website address will be something like this: http:// www.ispsname.com/members/yourname/yourpage.html Or maybe: http://yourname.ispsname.com/yourpage.html
- The second is to use a free web hosting service. Sites that offer free hosting regularly display banners or advertisements that are quite annoying to website visitors.
- And the third is to host the site on a computer locally at your home or office. Which requires high-speed Internet, good bandwidth, in addition to having the server on all the time. There are many security risks in this method.
Whichever way you use to host your website for free, they present significant problems, it doesn’t look professional in the first place. Free hosting is limited to a small amount of disk space and a small amount of bandwidth. Another disadvantage is web positioning is that you do not have an electronic address with the extension of your domain. The main disadvantage, in my opinion, is that websites that use free hosting are never shown in the results of Internet search engines such as Google, Bing or Yahoo!
Currently there are web hosting services that are quite cheap, prices vary between $15 and $35 per month. Hosting companies offer different packages according to your needs.
