The Limitations of Having Free Hosting Service

Who would says that having a free hosting service will not cause any troubles in the future? Obviously, the more pages and visitors you've got on your site has the possibility for your free host to go down and exceed the limits. If you don't have a much more budget, then I suggest you check on webhosting company packages that is being offered online.

Getting a well not functioned website will cost you more because you have to purchase everything from the domain, and the storage you are going to use. Aside from that, there are limitations of using free hosting service, a specific number of storage and ofcourse, you don't own the domain itself.
