this is 100% true, but dont forget we (genuine hosts) have the word MUG tattooed across our foreheads, so we give everyone free reseller accounts and while we pay the hundreds of $ a month for our servers and give all our services away for $0 while our clients rake in hundreds of $

Some people actually think that's how the world works.
"The internet is free."

Most of them are teens and college kids off for summer breaks.

Crazy kids.

Even if someone provides free reseller accounts, I bet they would be on overloaded servers without cPanels. After all, no one would want to ruin their server and waste money unless of course this pays of well for the webhosting company like in terms of better advertisement.

not all free providers run like this.

6 years ago we set up a brand that offered free hosting (mostly reseller) to registered charities and community groups (they needed to provide proof of status).

We were quite happy to cover the server costs including cpanel licence and allow the charities to resell hosting if they wanted to make extra income. We never oversold servers doing this. 2 years ago we sold this brand etc. to a host that primarily hosted charity websites.

If you are serious about your websites, you will learn that free hosting is never worth it.

i find several people use free hosting along with free domains to bash other hosts etc. without tracing the sites back to them or so they can do this without effecting their own servers

this sort of thing is also common

You say it is common yet I have never heard of it.
It happened to you. A lot of things seem to happen to you based on your posting here.
I still would like to see some evidence that people are really using free accounts to bash other hosts.

I've been doing this for 10 years now and my experience has been just the opposite of what yours often seems to be.

The biggest issue I see with "free" web hosts is that one day they could be there and the next day they might not. Since you don't have any real agreement with them, they could just be wiped off the face of the earth one day and its users could be left without their data.

I am also weary about the security of such free services. Security upkeep is expensive and how can free hosts afford to maintain secure servers and networks?

simple answer thay dont have any.

We took over such a free hosting company a few years ago and when we looked at their server they had no security setup (not even CSF which is free). when we informed all their clients that we took them over and would no longer be providing free hosting 80% of the clients left while the other 20% agreed to say, some even taking out our higher plans

Not even CSF? No wonder it's free hosting!
