Free web space
The term “Free” lures almost everybody on earth and when it is something like free Web Space, it lures almost everybody who is interested in the virtual world. Free web space refers to the availability of web space for your website without paying for it. In other words it is like getting free publicity. But, is it really free?
More often than not, free web space hosting companies try to get the better of the customers by enticing them to take up their paid service options. However, there is other way in which free web space hosting companies make their money. The pop-ups, banners, buttons, headers and footers on the free web space that you get from these free web space hosting companies are some examples of making money. So it becomes a myth that free web space hosting companies don’t make enough profits.
There are a number of free web space hosts around, but all have some catch or the other to make money. They offer this free web space usually for a year and then it becomes a paid service from next year onwards. Or, they require that you have to carry their advertising on your free web space forever for them to make money out of it. The other drawback is that in most of the cases, the servers on which your free web space is allocated is very slow and sometimes fails to respond at all. So, if you are planning to host your website on a free web space then please be sure you have read and understood the terms and conditions very carefully.
