Free is always a soothing term when it comes to shopping be it for clothing or while choosing a hosting company and so enterprises often exploit the meaning of this term while endorsing their product, giving a serious dent on their consumers pocket. Apparently that doesn’t mean every one is using FREE as a gimmick.
Talking about web hosting services, most providers use the word Free with bandwidth. It could be genuine in a few cases but it is typically a gimmick on a large criteria.
Bandwidth is an important factor that should be given a close look while choosing a web hosting company. Bandwidth determines the amount of traffic you can receive on your web site. It actually sets the limit for you and your visitors to upload or download data through your website.
So while choosing a web hosting company pay a keen attention on the amount of bandwidth and limitation. It is advisable to read TOCs carefully while choosing the unlimited free bandwidth as unlimited bandwidth might put you in grey area. In general opinion it is always better to go for a hosting that clearly outlines the limits and sets the bar where all can see it. Moreover, on initial levels it’s wise to choose a hosting provider that allows you a good number of visitors and can offer upgrade in a descent cost with increase in visitors.
