(Top 9 Reasons) Why You Should Avoid Free
WordPress Hosting
Often there are two types of business owners -
one who goes for the best and one who chooses
the median. Even in the online business
landscape, the case is no different. When people
start to build a WordPress website from scratch,
most of them would prefer a recommended
WordPress host while others will rely on a free
WordPress host.
2
While both of them have their own set of
advantages and disadvantages, free WordPress
hosts are well-known for the latter one. So,
what are they? Well, we will find out that in
the next section of this blog being wrapped up
in some powerful reasons for not choosing
it. But before moving ahead, I must let you know
about the client-centric web design Los Angeles
company - SFWP Experts. It is one of the most
experienced companies in the US that has several
years of experience in designing, developing,
and promoting a website. You can approach them
for almost all services that your website needs,
out of which some are WordPress web design and
development, Wordpress plugin development,
WordPress customization, search engine
optimization, and pay per click
advertising. Now lets get back to the point
where we left earlier. 9 Reasons Why You Should
Avoid Free WordPress Hosting 1. Concern Of
Security Vulnerabilities Since free WordPress
hosts do not have enough funds or resources to
employ network engineers and security
professionals, you cant expect them to offer
you an excellent service. Such hosts are quite
vulnerable to attacks provided that they have
poor firewalls and inadequate security
countermeasures. Besides that, it doesnt
require a credit card to sign up, making the
entry barrier to free WordPress hosts almost
zero. Taking advantage of this
3
  • signup process, users or bots with malicious
    intentions could easily get a free hosting
    account. Since your WordPress website is hosted
    by the same server, it is more vulnerable to
    internal attacks.
  • Performance Issues
  • You know that shared WordPress hosts are more
    likely to have performance issues owing to
    increased loads on the server. Mostly when
    someone misuses the shared servers resources or
    some website receives heavy traffic.
  • Now, you could imagine what could happen with
    free WordPress hosts where anyone can get an
    account at the zero dollar price point. There is
    a good chance that your WordPress website will
    have to face challenges of intermittent downtime
    and thus poor overall performance.
  • Limited Resources
  • Whats one good thing about shared hosts is that
    they have enough money to buy powerful servers.
    This is why they are able to offer their clients
    a host of benefits such as unlimited disk space,
    high I/O operations quota and unlimited
    bandwidth (subjected to fair-use policy), among
    others.
  • On the other side, free hosts dont have that
    budget and you have to compromise with low disk
    space, limited bandwidth, and pretty low max file
    upload size.
  • If you cant find a WordPress hosting provider
    that can meet your website requirements, its
    better to consult with us. We will provide you
    with a perfect solution for which you will thank
    us later. Our Los Angeles web design company is
    prominent in North America for offering amazing
    customer service when it comes to responsive web
    design and

  • development, WordPress website redesign and
    maintenance, social media management, SEO, PPC,
    and online marketing.
  • Low Success Rate Of Automated WordPress Backups
  • As you already know, how much WordPress backups
    are important and how they can emerge as a
    life-saving option at times. Most of the reliable
    shared web hosts that you might know such as
    BlueHost and SiteGround offer automated R1Soft
    backups for their hosting account but free hosts
    dont.
  • In a free WordPress host, even if you set an
    automatic backup using UpdraftPlus, there is a
    good chance that it will fail. Even if the
    scheduler does the job, still there is a chance
    that the remote upload job would fail, no matter
    if it happens due to network errors or timeout of
    PHP maximum execution time.
  • No Customer Support
  • Let me be blunt here - free WordPress hosts are
    not obliged to provide you any form of customer
    support. If they do its well and good but if
    they dont respond to your query, there is
    nothing you can do about it (except moving to a
    paid host).
  • In case you are running an eCommerce site or your
    business is entirely dependent on website
    traffic, we suggest you go for a paid host. This
    way your website will keep earning for you
    consistently even when you sleep. And if it gets
    crashed due to traffic spikes, you know what you
    have to do. Alternatively, you can also reach
    out to us as well for guidance or assistance for
    choosing a good host. At our Los Angeles web
    design company, you get an array of high-quality
    services that aren't only limited to

5
  • eCommerce web design and development but search
    engine optimization, conversion rate
    optimization, and social media marketing as well.
  • Sudden Service Termination
  • There have been many WordPress hosts over the
    years like WordPress, 000webhost, HostAwesome,
    and Byet that have been known to provide good
    services to its clients. However, just after a
    few years to 2019, some of them have gone out of
    business.
  • And its no wonder that it actually happened
    because they are not reliable in the long term.
    In the worst-case these free WordPress hosts
    might disappear overnight without any warning or
    communication. Also, you dont get an idea when
    or even if they are coming back.
  • But if you are lucky enough, you will have a
    backup of your WordPress website stored in a
    remote location. Using it you can easily restore
    your website and bring everything again on the
    track.
  • WordPress Emails Doesnt Work Properly
  • A major issue with free WordPress hosts is the
    poor email delivery system (especially the
    inability to send emails from the hosting
    server).
  • Since they allow anyone to sign up for an account
    without fulfilling any requirement, malicious
    bots use these servers to send spam to as many
    users as possible. As a result, the IPs of free
    hosts are blacklisted by popular email providers
    and when the emails originate from these IPs and
    sent to other people they are automatically sent
    to spam.
  • However, if you want to opt for email marketing
    to promote your products or services, you can
    get in touch with the representatives of our Los
    Angeles

6
  • web design company. We specialize in a variety of
    professional services including email marketing,
    internet marketing, and content marketing. Other
    than this, you can also get ahold of us for
    custom web design, homepage design, landing page
    design, logo design or mobile app development
    that will help in expanding your reach and grow
    your business.
  • Hurt Your SEO Rankings And Limits Your Hosting
    Benefits
  • When you will sign up for a free WordPress
    hosting account, they will only allow you to use
    a subdomain in order to preserve their branding
    effort. However, if you plan to link a custom
    domain, you will have to opt for its paid
    upgrade.
  • The case with ads is no different either. Free
    WordPress hosts will display their ads on your
    site and wont allow you to run the ads that will
    prevent you from making too much money.
  • And as far as SEO goes, your site wont rank
    higher in the search engine results if it will
    be hosted in a sub-domain with a poor DA.
  • Expensive Upsells Costs And Difficult Migration
  • One of the common ways free hosts make money is
    by upselling. They charge you overpriced amounts
    for even minor upgrades such as increasing disk
    space or transferring bandwidth.
  • Moreover, if you wish to migrate your website to
    any other host, they might unnecessarily
    complicate the migration process and create
    problems for you.
  • So, What Are Better Alternatives To A Free
    WordPress Host?

7
  • WordPress.com (Free)
  • Shared WordPress Hosting BlueHost (2.95/mo)
  • VPS Hosting DigitalOcean (5/mo)
  • Cloudways Managed Cloud Hosting (10/mo)
  • Lowdown
  • Conclusively, the money that you think you will
    save by choosing a free WordPress host over the
    paid ones isnt going to happen in reality. Its
    a complete hoax that you shouldnt believe and
    consider switching to the other good hosts.
    Another thing that is disappointing about free
    WordPress hosts is that the amount of time you
    will have to spend on fixing issues associated
    with the security of your site, performance, and
    over reliability will cost you a lot more than
    the cost of paid ones.
  • So, if you are pretty much concerned about the
    security of your customer and website
    information, we suggest you trust one that has
    proper security countermeasures, more disk
    space, and high input and output operations. In
    case you need any assistance, connect with us on
    call, chat or email. The professionals part of
    our Wordpress website design company will help
    you out with perfect solutions and also ensure

    redesign, website support and maintenance, SEO,
