Analytical company NNGroup conducted research to assess the perception of advertising by Internet users. The respondents were asked to rate on a scale from 1 ("very much like") to 7 ("not like at all") different types of advertising that can be found on websites. So the average is 4.95. T.e. it is clear that users do not like advertising messages on the site.
What is this information for? Besides, by choosing free hosting for hosting a site, you get a 100% chance that it will host ads, which cannot be removed. And this is not the only disadvantage of using free hosting. Although there are a couple of pluses here.
Let's see what to choose, paid hosting or free hosting, what are the advantages of both options.
The main advantage of free hosting is that there is no need to pay for the service. Therefore, if you have a non-commercial project, for example, a website for training and hone your development skills, you can consider this option.
Another advantage of this option is the presence of a website builder. This is typical for most hosters offering free hosting services.
On this, perhaps, all the advantages of this option end.
When choosing a paid site placement, of course, there is no question of any advertising. And this helps to increase the loyalty of users visiting your web resource.
When deciding which option to choose, paid or free hosting, keep in mind the following important points:
In addition, there are many questions about SEO-promotion of web resources hosted on free hosting. Remember the story when web resources on WIX dropped out of the index (even on paid plans)? And its creators could not do anything about it. In the case of free hosting, there is no question of successful indexing initially.
What to do? If you need a website to sell goods and services, or for other commercial purposes, it is definitely worth buying hosting. This way you are guaranteed to get support from the hoster in the event of any emergency situations. In addition, it is not so expensive. For example, our business solutions cost from 17.71 $ per month (hosting with VPS elements, when the mutual influence of neighbors on the server on each other is excluded).
The no-pay option can be considered, except for training and testing. And even then, not every hoster is suitable for this. So, decide for yourself.
