Sorry for off topic, but i need get get some solution for my web site hosting. I have done a little research about it.
Here is what I have found justhost.com as paid solution or host1free.com as free web hosting solution any reviews about those companies?
Here is my question to you:
1. What is difference between free and paid hosting?
2. Are those companies known well and are they reliable?

Thank you and hope to hear some of your reviews.

Welcome to HD
With free hosting you will get limited features and services or support.
I have no experience with these hosting providers so I can't review.

Hello,

On every forum I look on I see host1free promoting themselves. To me that doesn't say much about the service.

It's always better to go with a paid solution because it most cases it will be more reliable and more feature rich.

Regards,
Jack

go paid definitely. but not with justhost. they are terrible. look around the forum for offers/reviews. i currently have shared hosting accounts with valcatohosting (3month in) and plexihost (2weeks in) with 0 issues. i only had one dns related request to both and were answered promptly.

Paid hosting tends to be more reliable and have better support. If your website is important to you, I'd recommend that you invest in paid hosting

Nothing is free in the world, free hosting companies are not going to give maximum protection for your data. I won't say there are no exception. But exceptions are not examples. I shouldn't say, paid hosting will always ensure the protection as well, but still you may expect sorts of responsibilities from them. And the reviews/longevity of a hosting company should tell you how good they are in being responsible with you site.

With the free webhosting you will have the limited resources, limited disk space, bandwidth, no backup solution, no support. Its good for those who are the starters. But you can't expect these things from the free hosting. Besides you will get what you have paid for with paid webhosting.

Free versus paid - its all relative to the value you place on your data.

Definitely paid hosting is reliable as compared to free hosting. With paid you can't face any issue while free is terrible.

Exactly.
If you value your site, want to get quick resolution of problems, need 99.9% uptime then certainly Paid hosting is your only option.

However, if the site is not that important, uptime is not an issue for you, go with Free hosting and save money.

Isn't that always start with a new member asking for reviews about xyz host? or comparing xyz with justhost ??

I highly recommend paid hosting. It is much more reliable and much more faster.

It all depends on the company. Providers that stick to only free, will rely mostly on ad revenues from the sites they are hosting. Basically, they will place ads on your websites. Most won't offer quality support or quality uptime either. Also, most free web hosts don't stay in business that long.

With paid hosting, you get support, website tools and good uptime. If you are serious about having an online presence, stick to paid web hosting.

Free host differs in their style: some just make their money by placing annoying ads on your website and control panel. These usually offer poor quality service.
Other companies offer free web hosting as a "trial". While not limited in time, it is limited in features and offers a simple way to upgrade. You can enjoy a reliable hosting but when you need more resources, you upgrade.
