Hosting Free Hosting

When deciding where to host a new site, there is always a temptation to use the services of a free server. Well, in fact, why pay more if you can not pay at all? Such thoughts are especially often visited by beginning businessmen and authors of non-commercial projects. And free hosting, indeed, can provide many useful services. We will understand what is good here, what's wrong, and where is the mousetrap, in which lies free hosting.

A very serious drawback is the heavy load of free servers, and, as a consequence, slow speed. With this immediately have to accept, as with the inevitable evil. You can only try to choose the least slow hosting. You can do this by accessing the main hosting page. If it is loaded not just slowly, but very slowly - do not go there anymore. Look for something else.

To begin with, you need to carefully read the rules of the server with which you decided to tie a strong relationship. Each hosting has its own rules. And you either need to adapt your site to these requirements, or look for another place.

First look at the forbidden topics of the sites. Not all companies agree to host, for example, porn sites or about a freebie . Then, the size of the disk space is important. Well, as a rule, problems do not arise here. The smallest place on hosting for a site is 5MB. But now usually less than 20mb is not given anywhere.   For a home page or a business card site, the site will be enough for any hosting. But still, look how much space the site occupies. Just in case. Suddenly you have a photo album with large photos or MP3?

The next restriction imposed by free hosting is the size of the files. Any regular page, of course, fit, but the archives, the same pictures and music may not fit. It can even happen that hosting does not want to deal with certain file types at all. Most often in the category of undesirable files with the extension * .mp3, *. mpeg , *. zip , *. rar , *. arj .   Or they may not be available for download from your site by your visitors.

An important question is how you can download the site to the server.   Modern providers usually provide access via FTP (this is a protocol that allows you to upload a large amount of information). Simple and convenient. Much worse, if you want to download a form in the browser, which must be filled for each individual file. Try to find a hosting with FTP access. Very important is the ability to administer the site. A good hosting certainly has a control panel site, through which it is easy to make any changes.

Free hosting usually provides free mailboxes, forums, guest books. Very useful thing. Especially if you can change the design of the forum and books, make them the same type with the site (choose a background, font, logo). For people who themselves with the programming of such complex scripts (programs that form pages) can not cope, this thing is indispensable. That's just the whole database with addresses visited your forum or book, will not be available to you. It will remain on the server.

Hosting, even free , you have to live on something. And he lives at the expense of advertising, which he places on the websites of his clients. This is unpleasant, but if you provide a place for a banner on the site, it can turn out quite cute. Only here there are underwater stones. First, every hosting is chosen for their banners some place. And the banners on different hosting are different. It can be a big banner with a size of 468x60, located at the bottom of the page, or 100x100 in the upper right corner, or even completely popping up. So, already before designing the page, you need to estimate where you will host and reserve a place for unnecessary advertising to you. And the second trouble, if hosting allows advertising on some "slippery" topic. Then such bad advertising can appear at you on a site, for what you will exclude from any program of promotion with more strict rules. And the third minus: some hosting places restrictions on the presence on the pages of other people's banners. Can, for example, ban the placement of someone else's banner next to their own or even require to remove it from the page.

Before registering on the hosting you need to see which script languages ​​support hosting. All saw "pushing" buttons, drop-down menus, etc. These are simple scripts, they are executed by the browser when downloading the html- page code without any server involvement. But there are server scripts. To execute them, you need the software or database installed on the server. In this case, the browser receives an already generated, ready-made page. It can be a search on the site, processing of databases, for example, an online store , chat or forum. If the site uses server languages, see if it supports hosting. If not, look for another place.

And the most important drawback is that serious people and companies have a biased approach to sites on free hosting. A self-respecting company will never be tempted by a freebie . Many services on the Internet refuse to work with " freeloaders ." Coupled with slow loading and periodic disruptions of communication with the server all this   does not inspire confidence in sites with free hosting. Therefore, if you want to do serious work on the Internet, move to the paid server as soon as possible.
