In the 21st century, with the massive development in all the fields, especially in the field of technology, it is basically impossible to build an impact or enter the market and do business and bring growth to a company without having a website. Almost all the companies, small or big, are more interested in making their website in such a way that it has a good impression in the mind of the visitor, so that he/she wants to buy the company’s product or make a business relation with the company.
It is mainly because of the increasing dependence of the people on the internet. People today generally tend to take help of the internet for everything, even for assistance in choosing the company also. So, with the increasing demand for website making, the web hosting companies have also come up and they have increased in large numbers mainly in the last few years.
Types of web hosting
Web hosting can be mainly divided into two types. Free and paid. The free web hosting, as the name suggests, requires no money and you can make your site for free. The paid one needs money. You will have to pay them on a monthly basis. There are a lot of web hosting companies in the market both free and paid offering different services and each one claiming to be best one, and trying to show that the services provided by them are the best. But, before choosing the web hosting company, you should not be carried away by the reviews they give as customer reviews, and should look in details.
For the small companies
Generally, the small companies, doing business in a small area with a small capital, cannot afford to spend much amount of money in web site designing, so they tend to go with the company offering web site at the lowest price. Most of the free web hosting companies does take advantage of this as many choose free web site hosting alternative.
Problems with free web hosts
There are lot of problems associated with the free web hosting sites. The biggest problem is the security issue. The free web hosting companies do not have any system of checking for any sorts of viruses or malwares or any threats of hackers, so the sites are easy to be attacked by these and you will be the sufferer. Plus, they only provide 1500MB to 10GB of memory space, so every time you add a photo, you will have to think about that limit. They also don’t give you the free domain and your website domain will contain the name of the server. So it is troublesome.
Problems with paid sites faking the reviews
There are also many website hosting companies which put fake small business web hosting reviews and try to show there company is best by reducing the cost. You must beware of them. The companies must give unlimited space along with a free domain and also website designing tools.
So, before investing on any company, to get best result you must look at the options available and also the cost you can pay.
