Do you recommend free hosting or paid hosting? I saw many people complaining regarding free hosting is there seriously any issue with it?
I'm currently using highmarkhosting. com as a free hosting provider.
It seems to be working fine, but is there any threat to my files and etc?
With free hosting there are various disadvantages associated. The only advantage you will get with it is that the service is free of cost. You can't expect the following things with a free web hosting provider:
Greater Uptime Guarantee;
Good and 24x7 customer support;
Ad Free Hosting;
100% control over your hosting in terms of domain hosting, mostly they will ask you to go for a sub-domain to host your website with them.;
Unlimited Email Accounts (only 1 email account allowed);
Technical support for PHP / MySQL, etcÖ;
Adequate DiskSpace and Bandwidth;
Essential Tools and Features in terms of cPanel features: Mostly you will get limited features to use in cPanel;
30 days money back and other service guarantees.
You can see that there are more disadvantages than that of advantages of using free web hosting services.
