    Free Is Not Free - Another group of...

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Another group of the free web hosts began as free hosts, and then started charging for services with the hope that the users would pay rather than go through the hassle of moving their website.

    Still others require the right to put some form of advertising on your web pages. This does not project a professional image to your viewers.

    This is still not the major hidden cost of a free web host.

    The real hidden cost of a free web host (or a budget web host) is the lack of services that the host provides.

    Put yourself in the position of the CEO of the free web host. How much can you pay for support personnel if you are not charging the user for your services? How solid a hardware system can you afford to host the websites? How much can you invest to guarantee no downtime on the servers?

    If the web host does not provide the services as part of your hosting agreement, then you have to provide the services yourself. This causes you to pay for the services or work long, hard hours to compensate for the free web host. Your time is worth money. You should be realistic in your accounting for your time as part of the costs of your business.
