Most hosts should support both PHP and MySQL but you should avoid free hosting services at all costs!
Website security is a serious issue and this is something you will not get from a free hosting site!
Web hosting can be complicated. To truly customise and optimise your website (if you plan on having a competitive, engaging website at all), you will need to learn a thing or two about it.
Sometimes, you need an expert. Customer Support is a deal-breaker for me when it comes to hosting companies. You can say goodbye to technical support if you opt for a free hosting site!
For your website to rank highly on Google, your site needs to be optimised for speed and performance. High speed sites are an ongoing race and this isn’t likely to slow down any time soon.
Your website isn’t going to load very quickly at all if it’s covered in mandatory advertisements or stuck on a cheap, slow server. Free hosting sites will not be able to give your website a competitive edge at all.
Free hosting sites must pay for their expenses somehow and they’re certainly not going to get enough money from you. They’ll most likely resort to advertising, or are selling your personal information.
Signing up with a free hosting service just isn’t worth it. Know the value of your website and find yourself a reputable, high-performance web host!
Don’t go for the bottom-dollar or corporate hosting companies. They’re not going to offer a decent service and will overcharge you in the meantime.
Don’t waste your time with these dodgy free hosting companies, find an affordable host and you’ll reap the benefits.
