    It's always better to avoid free hosting and blogger hosting, because it's nothing but waste of your hard work, always go with paid web hosting because now a days many hosing provider offering good hosting plans in cheap rates. Paid hosting allows you to create your own brand in market which will give you good earning in long term, don't think about short term gain.

    Free hosting is just a marketing bluff which is intentionally created to grab your attention so please avoid such stuff and find out some reliable web host that provide quality service with optimal uptime. There are a lot of web hosts, but out of this I'll suggest you to go with Webhosting UK as they renowned in the market for the quality service and optimal uptime guaranty. In addition to that they offer some exciting deals on some packages of shared server and virtual private server.

    Free web hosting will have shared resources, no technical support, No addon services, All hosting activities need to be handled client itself and more. In case if your website traffic is quite high than normal, you need to upgrade your hosting plan to handle the load. You will face maximum downtime and limit on bandwidth usage.

    Paid hosting is good choice for newbies. the hosting provider will offer you all the hosting features along with Best Discounts.

    The advancement in the IT technology has enabled us to get our own website published, that too, free of cost. The advent of the free web hosting services and website builder has enabled us to design a new website within a very short time period. As a result, the free web hosting plans seem to be highly attractive and a very sleek option to publish websites. However, it has its own pros and cons which are not clearly visible in the attractive advertisements.Before analyzing the merits and demerits of free web hosting, let’s have a quick look over what the free web hosting really mean.

    There are fee for may be year, but hosting speed is slow and depend which kind of website you running. If your website is e-eCommerce website, you just go for the good domain otherwise you may lost your data if free domain has no security.

    As praveenk have said, don't risk your work with some semi stable or secured free server. You don't need to pay so much money to get some decent security options and support. So i vote 100% for paid. It's not needed to be dedicated server also.

    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.

    Does not give you control on what you can run (what operating system) on your server.

    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.
