    Default Paid hosting vs Free hosting.

    Hello guys,
    I'm a newbie to blogging and I'm planning to start a blog very soon. I just want to know what would be the best option for me to go with, paid or free? Many people have already advised me to start with blogger or free WordPress blog, but I'm curious to know what would be the difference if I go with paid hosting? Is it worth to go paid from the start, or its better to start with a free service?

    I just started doing a lot of blogging again after I had kind of given up on the idea of making any money with it. Then in one of these forums somebody pointed to Blogjobs. I just started, but I absolutely love it. I get paid for the writing and not the advertising like some sites. The give you 50 points just for the blog, and then you make more points when you do other things. Once you reach so many points you can cash out. It is worth it for someone like me that only really wants to blog in my spare time. I can let the points collect and have fun doing it, while I get paid for my hard work later. It is not dependent on if someone buys the ads or anything, but you can still post your ads. I get paid regardless. I love it. Whoever thought of this, had a great idea. Anyway, that's the site you should go for.

    I have joined blogging field from the past few years. When I started I didn't know anything about it. I faced a lot of issues blogging and was using free hosting. At that time, I use to think that there is no difference between them. But I was wrong, Paid and Free hosting have a lot of differences between them.

    One of the most important factors is, If you want to build a long-term site. Then I will prefer using Paid hosting to keep your website up and running. Also, if you want to make money from your site. Then you should not even think about Free hosting. Because if you do so you will face a lot of issues. Therefore, my suggestion goes for a Paid hosting and your site will be awesome.

    You're absolutely correct my friend. Free hosting is more suitable for those who are new to blogging and want some experience. Blogging requires immense dedication and hardwork and you should be very serious if you want to become a professional blogger.
    Struggle is the very first step towards blogging and as the time passes by, you will get more and more experience with it and you will start loving all this.

    If you are beginner in the blogging world, I suggest you to begin with free hosting, you can get a free blog from wordpress, blogger and weebly. If you already have some experience switch to paid hosting. Start with shared hosting and later upgrade your hosting plan.

    I always prefer using Paid web hosting for every site. Especially for those whom we are going to make money. If we select a free hosting provider for our site and it goes down permanently. Our site will face a huge loss and we will have to put lot of effort to take it back. Who knows they will let you know or just stop the business without telling you? If you haven't backed up your site, all your data is lost forever and you can't do anything in this regard. Therefore, a paid hosting provider is best option to choose for all sites.

    If you are serious about blogging or having website (that may be of various nature, from ecommerce to online forum), you must go with paid hosting. Free hosted websites have many limitations. If you want to monetize your website, you must also choose paid hosting service.
