There are several advantages to web hosting over free hosting services, with the first being domain names. With web hosting, you have the ability to host your website at your domain name, whereas with free website hosting, you generally have a long website address under the hosting providers name (i.e. http://free-web-hosting-provider.org/yourname/…).
Often times, free hosting services require their advertising to remain on your website. At 8TECH HK you fully control the content of your website – all plans are completely ads-free.
Another big advantage of website hosting is the sizable increase in your disk space and bandwidth. With free hosting services, you typically have limited amounts of disk space and bandwidth. The larger amounts that come with your account allow you to hold more files and receive more visitors to your website.
Also, all web hosting plans are ready for dynamic content like a blog or CMS and include a database.
