Its obvious that paid hosting is much better than a free host, the difference is like night and day, unless you come across a paid web host with poor support.

In my opinion, total free hosting is a a waste of time and money because if you want to stop abuse and keep security in an acceptable level you need to pay for some software such as CloudLinux and CXE. But it does not guarantee that free client upgrade their services to paid one. If you don't try to consider security and let abusers do anythig they want, then even those free clients who was planning to upgrade will be lost because they will think your paid service is not better than free one.

A good idea may be to create a plan with very low resources and set its price to very very cheap even less than $1/mo but keep your working on providing security and reliability. In such a business scenario, those who need hosting for only trial, learning or doing their collage project will not bother from paying for that very low fee. And those who establish real and active websites, will go for upgrading to higher plan and keep their invoices paid as long as they see what they expect from growth of their website and your service quality. So by this case, you don't offer free but a service worth only a coin and you have opportunity to get more paid. If you can get a few hundreds coin-valued client, you may earn good cash.

Freehosting is just a ploy most of the time. I remember when I was about 12 or 13, I used a free hosting provider while I taught myself web design and it was a nightmare. Lasted about a month until I paid for an account on a reputable provider. Year later, founded my first hosting company

Free hosting may be suitable for newbies to know how web hosting works, how a control panel looks like, how to use the features and options under control panel, etc. but if you're trying to earn some revenue from a website you will have to go with a paid hosting account.

It is always better to opt paid hosting as it is reliable and will have better uptime.

It's like comparing apples with oranges! Or maybe even more controversial - tricykles and Ferraris. When you pay for your services you get so much more - support, reliability and no (or at least less) misunderstandings, as with free hosting you're getting a cat in the bag (you never can be entirely sure what exactly you're getting and how long your free services will last).

The only difference between paid hosting and free hosting is the price

Not always

Paid hosting will give you some sort of stability and support

Free hosting you dont have stability as the host could just pack up and you have no come backs as you paid nothing. Also a majority of free hosts will not provide any support unless you pay for it

That would be a key difference though free and hosting does generally differ quite a lot from paid hosting. Generally, free hosting comes with a custom control panel, a free one or a cheaper panel like DirectAdmin (whereas most paid hosting services offer cPanel).

Support etc can also differ but even paid hosting companies can have long delays so I won't put that in the list.

Nonsense and obfuscation! There is nothing about price that alters hosting features. I can sell hosting without stability or support or a custom control panel just as easily as I can by giving it away. Conversely I can give away hosting of the same quality as paid hosting -- and a do sometimes with bundling. If I charge today for hosting that I give away tomorrow nothing has changed but the price.

As a matter of fact, I will say that there is at least on free hosting plan out there that is more stable than at least one paid hosting plan'

Reducing the price of a hosting plan from $x to $0.00 does not alter server performance or alter the laws of physics

Free hosting also does not include backups or access to your data backup. Free hosting is never good for websites that is important to the user.

Please provide an example of a free hosting plan that does not include backups and access to the backup. If you are correct this should be easy for you
