Paid hosts are rarely held accountable.
No difference really.

Look at some of the lies that paid hosts tell.
Unlimited resources etc. How could anyone trust them over a free web host?

If you are going to set up your website and are on the lookout for finding and using only solid and strong hosting packs, try forgetting about free stuff and instead turn to shared or dedicated accounts as they are valuable always.

Free based hosting packs are accompanies by numerous limitations and they are not recommended to be used for setting up serious types of businesses.

Biggest drawback of free hosting is that it is not a reliable source at all. You build a good web site, upload it and then server goes down. There will no place that you can trace the issue and get support. Result will be the time loss.

Whereas paid hosting comes with support where you can contact any time through many means and solve issues with their assistance.

Free web hosting means living in a friend's house without paying any rent that is looking fine for sometime, but when you start using appliances and facilities than usual, then definitely your friend will kick you out without any doubt. It is similar case with free hosting. There is no guarantee for your website or blog. Hence, use it on your own risk

free Hosting will Not gives you much features and will disturb your website after some time when your website becomes popular by adding their own add on your site they will not gives you 24/7 live support or something like that whenever paid hosting gives you 24/7/365 live chat,ticket,email support and they are bound to help you within every issue related to your hosting and free hosting are totally negative of paid hosting.

It totally depends on your requirements. If you are just testing things out I would suggest getting started with a free hosting and more your way from there.

But if you plan on running any dynamic scripts make sure you ask your free hoster if they will support it or not.

The first and foremost difference between them is of reliability and security. I will prefer to go for paid.

The shared hosting plans are so cheap today, is it a big deal to get a shared hosting for $1 instead of assisting someone in their marketing strategies?

There is a huge difference between them which can not be filled in any case.

Free is not at all reliable, you do not get customer support for your issues and also providers banners will remain on your web site in any case, so you do not get full freedom in developing your business web site.

Free hosting is a service that offers limited features and the support isnt the best. I would suggest that you go with paid web hosting.. there are better features and services.

I always prefer paid hosting because it is reliable as compared to free hosting. With paid you can't face any issue while free is terrible.

1. What is difference between free and paid hosting?

free hosting is like a trial just for test 30 days and 45 days use only not your own
but paid hosting is not like that................... pay for one year and use with all features and offers like unlimited e-mail , unlimited FTP etc..........................


enjoy
