All of us know that a blog is a variant of a website which is maintained and operated by a single person who regularly updates information about an event or a happening. It can also be a blog with personal contents. In simple words, blogs are the online spaces for individuals to express their views and opinions to the world. Hundreds and thousands of blogs are being created on daily basis around the world. Many of these use a free hosting platform while the others used a paid web hosting. You need to decide upon a host before you host a website. The 2nd most important thing you need to consider is what software or blogging platform you are going to use. Let us take a comprehensive look at both the free and paid versions of web hosting.
Free Web Hosting
Free web hosting for blogs normally uses a blogging platform like WordPress.com or Blogger.com. Both of these platforms have an easy sign-up process. After just filling out a few blanks you can get your own blog up and run. If you are a beginner, then the service of a free host suits you. With a free web hosting experience can learn about blogs and all other aspects and then decide upon whether you should carry on with the free hosting or signup for paid web hosting services. The drawbacks far outweigh the benefits with free blogs. Some of the disadvantages are:
- The foremost factor is that you are not the actual owner of the blog or the contents. The free web hosting company would be the real owner of your page.
- Your blog’s URL would entail the name of the free host as well.
- Since you are publishing your contents you should abide by the rules put forth by the website hosting company.
- Given that the hosting is done free of cost, you have to put up with the advertisements that are either on the top or bottom of your page.
- These advertisements may not at all be appropriate for your website.
Paid Web Hosting
When it comes to paid web hosting you will have the option to choose from a wide range of hosting plans. Most of these plans are generally charged on annual basis. However, VPS server and dedicated server hosting in Pakistan plans are charged on monthly basis. Different hosting companies have their own hosting plans and they charge according to the services they provide. The price may also differ based on the term of the contract.
