Disadvantages of a free web hosting service:-

1. Annoying ads. Most free web hosting sites puts loads of advertisements on your website, in the form of links, pop ups or banners. They also have restricted features that will force you to select for a paid plan.
2. Poor Technical Support: Most hosting companies openly announce that they don't offer technical support to their free services. Technical supports are mostly found in paid versions.
3. They do not hold any responsibility for non-reliability or irregularity. They put all their bandwidth on the paid ones.
4. It makes you more and more upset when you need advanced options that are usually not offered for free. 5. There are providers that offer free hosting once you buy the domain. But since you pay for the domain, then it becomes paid and “not free” at all. Moreover, paid websites take care of all the hassles of free web hosting and provide you with top-notch services, which come for a price. The big disadvantage of paid hosting is that it may ruin your budget. Rest assured though that you are guaranteed a hassle-free hosting, and can hold the host provider responsible for inefficiency.
