Is It Safe To Use Free Hosting for WordPress?

What Are The Limits Of Free Hosting

Limited Storage and Bandwidth 

Every businesses offer "what you pay is what you get" since you are not paying anything because you choose free hosting, usually a free hosting package includes 1GB storage which is not bad for start-ups and 5GB bandwidth equivalent to my estimation 4,000 monthly visitors. If your bandwidth reaches it's limit, your website will go down and goes up after a month. 

Meaning when you notice an increase traffic to your website using a free hosting plan, I advice that you should upgrade your free plan to paid plan to avoid experiencing your website being suspended every month. 

You Start With No Custom Domain

When setting up your free plan,you are required to choose two options which is you going to purchase your own custom domain or use their available subdomain, but if you want to have your own brand then I advice you purchase a domain.

You Account Might Get Deleted

Web hosting has their own maintainance schedule where they clean their database and space and when they do they might include your account. 

To avoid inconvenience and deletion,  I require you to login twice a month because web hosting company that offers free hosting clean up their database that are inactive for too long and if your account is labeled active in their database,  your account will be excluded in the clean up. 

But if in case you don't want to problem this issues but you want to start a blog you can choose blogger.
