My newly discovered free web hosting distributor
I recently found 50webs Hosting, a United States-registered hosting accounts provider, which offers free website hosting packages. The major reason why they can offer charge-free web hosting plans without any banner adverts is the fact that you can have only one free-of-cost website hosting user account with them, whereas web hosting vendors that display web banners on your websites allow you to have as many cost-free hosting user accounts as you like.
Free hosting limitations
Lots of free web site hosting distributors disallow the use of their free-of-charge website hosting accounts for file or image hosting purposes only and the use of traffic for inline linking purposes. Lots of free hosting providers prohibit hotlinking or remote linking and the use of different file formats. 50webs Hosting is no exception and prohibits inline linking by default.
File size limits
Other common limitations forced on charge-free web site hosting accounts by free web hosting service providers are related to the size of the files. For example, 50webs Hosting does not permit clients to upload files whose size is bigger than 500 kilobytes or large media files. Even if you try to upload a big file or a prohibited computer file type, you will not succeed. You can upload bigger files and escape this limitation if you upgrade to a paid web site hosting account. 50webs Hosting furnishes amazingly reasonably priced website hosting solutions if you require extra resources.
Another free web site hosting account limitation is related to the amount of files you can host inside the website hosting account. Paid web hosting plans usually involve file quotas as well, but free web site hosting packages include much more limited file quotas. Let's take as an example the charge-free hosting plan provided by 50webs Hosting. You can only store 5000 files in your charge-free hosting account and need to upgrade to a paid hosting plan if you desire to store more. The charge-free web site hosting plan does not offer an e-mail service too, so this type of hosting service is mainly appropriate for testing purposes or if you host a family-oriented, non-profit web page, which needs an extremely small amount of web traffic and contains very few files. If your small website project starts to increase, however, you do not necessarily have to swap hosting providers, since there also is the possibility to upgrade your web site hosting plan to a paid one without ever needing to change web servers.
