Income depends on your ability to commercialize the product (how you do it is in your own hands). The best advice I can give you is to go search Flippa marketplace for free hosting providers that were or are for sale and study their financials (revenues/expenses). It'll give you a good understanding of how much they make in relation to their size.

Free hosting does actually work. We have offered it for sometime and we don't even place any banners, but the catch is that we are able to have clients grow with us and when they get professional and require much more than free hosting offers they will easily buy from us because they already know the reliability with servers. However one needs to exercise a lot of caution because many free hosting providers will crumble before their 3rd birth date and you don't want that to happen with your website.

You can incorporate free hosting into your hosting packages to have better results. If you start to offer free hosting to everyone, after a while you may find tons of spam on your web servers, low quality sites without having prospects of earning money. Instead, for the start, you can offer an 18 month hosting package to the first-time customers, at the price of the yearly accounts, this can work out better.

Truth is, real customers and business companies are not looking for some free hosting accounts, they need to have trust in your organization and this demands dedication and time and honesty.

It depends on your plan and marketing. Few free hosting providers still in market from couple of years.

In my opinion, it is always better to opt for a paid and managed web hosting platform. This is important because the web hosting platform supports the functioning of your website.

Ads on homepage, in cpanel and on sites is really the only way to turn a profit. But with the revenue from 15 free sites MIGHT match one paid customer.

I bet free hosting comes with a lot of trouble customers. Consumers who want to upload illegal content. I'd shy away from free web hosting.

Like I told before I spent many years in free webhosting. It is a lot of work and I end up tiding my security so high that I can't accept new orders. Why? Because from 200 orders / day only like 3 are legit. I use to have free webhosting with no ads, so the attraction was big for abusers. First step down was when because of abusers clicking like crazy on my ads (on my main website) make a lot of clicks and I end up to have my account closed, so no more money.

I had everything like a paid webhosting:
-cPanel, SSL login cPanel, orders using WHMCS, antispam etc, so most of the paid webhosting don't have those things, and many "sentinels" checking, checking and gain checking.

My recommendation never do free webhosting.


I worked like crazy for security, to avoid my IPs to be blacklisted etc.

and for what? I used to do free webhosting to create anti fraud methods and scripts.


Most of those free webhosting are run by kids, they don't know nothing about security that's why we have spam, and phishing websites.

P.S. And believe me, it is enough 5 minutes to ruin your 25+ years in security.

Regards

Free hosting is good to promote your services. Create a small plan for free, make sure it has a good quality and create bigger plans that are chargeable. When the customer needs more resources and his happy with your services he will consider an upgrade to a higher plan even if it's not for free anymore.

Yes Free hosting works but if you face any problem then there will be no support team to help you out

They generate revenue by pushing some adds in control panel and website
