    There is no customer support if you get technically stuck on installation or there is a need for tutorial or guidance. If you are new to hosting and do not have much time to spare in setting things right, then you should go for paid hosting services.

    Yeah jackthomas087 is right, In free web hosting there is no customer support, limitation of resources, and many more things. I recommend you to go with paid web hosting services.

    In free hosting, no support, no backup and no security, it means 100% risk, therefore its always better to host website on paid hosting account. You can search in google for paid special hosting offer because now a days many hosting offers provided by hosting provider which you can purchase as per your resources requirement

    Free hosting will have very less hosting features, less support for any technical issues, you need to pay for other resources usability, resources will be shared among many clients, and more.

    Free website hosting only has a limited amount of space you can use. Free hosting accounts often do not provide enough storage or bandwidth for most businesses. There is not enough room for a large website site with many colorful graphics, some video and multiple pages.
    You may wonder how free providers can afford to offer free website hosting. Almost always, they make money by putting advertisements on the free pages. Therefore, you can certainly expect your pages to show ads on them that you did not place there. The worst is when a free host uses popups, which is very aggravating for visitors. Free web hosting sites term and conditions often require that you allow their online banners and advertisements to be placed on your website. As they will say, it is what pays the bills.
    A free site has their name along with your unique domain name in the address. If you have a business, a potential client might think you are not successful enough to have your own website, and turn away to find someone whose website is with one of the best paid website hosting services.
    You must use their website designs and system and cannot upload other popular website products like Wordpress into the free site.

    No web hosting provider offers the free web hosting. And, free hosting is not good for the site because it has many server issues.

    The biggest disadvantage of free web hosting is the commercial website owners would not like to put any ads on their website other than their own. Moreover, will not get no main domain and the customer support.

    1. With free hosting, you need to share a server with other sites.
    2. You have limited access to storage and memory.
    3. Lack of customer support
    4. No email accounts
    5. Limited features
