How much does Web Hosting cost?
Even though web hosting may sound complicated and you may think it’s going to be expensive, it really isn’t. Many small websites and blogs can get good hosting for a few dollars a month – the cost of one Starbucks latte!
What about FREE Blog Hosting Services?
You remember the old adage – “You get what you pay for.” Well, it’s generally true when talking about free blogging services. There are 2 major drawbacks to using these free services. First, you will be forced into using a long sub-domain such as newyorkpoliticalblogger2012.blogspot.com. Not exactly memorable is it?
But what’s even more troubling with free blogging services is that you don’t have control over them. They are free after all, and as such they don’t afford you as many options, nor do you really have control over your website’s content. Plus, if you want to move your blog to your own domain in a couple years, you’re going to have nothing but problems. Furthermore, free hosting services shut down all the time – you could possibly lose your entire site with little notice. One recent example of this is when arguably one of the biggest and most popular free hosting services of all time, Geo-cities, shut down a couple years ago. Geo-cities was said to host over a million sites – that suddenly vanished when they pulled the plug.
