So between free hosting and paid hosting, which do you think is better? I've used both free and paid hosting, and free hosting always usually has some sort of limitation. However, I think free hosting is fine for those who are on a budget or is new to owning a forum or website. I'm using paid hosting for all my projects right now, and they were definitely worth the price. I tried using free hosting for this forum, but ran into some issues with the SSL certificate so I switched to Namecheap.

My sites are both hosted by friends, but I think they pay for hosting, so I'm not sure if I count as paid or free since I don't pay them for it... But I've used free services before, and they work pretty well... I think it really depends on the type of site, honestly. Free hosting works great for small roleplaying sites, for example, but bigger sites are better with paid usually, because it gives them more options and less limitations, as you mentioned.

Free can be okay if you're in a pinch, but if you have the means to do it, always go paid. smile

My question is how much do you need to have to 'have the means'? shocked
