Whenever a business owner or company decides to make a website for their business promotion the first and foremost thing is to get it designed by a New York web designer. Building a website is like taking a first step towards increasing your popularity and revenue. Next important decision that you have to take is about web hosting, whether you would use free hosting services or get it from a paid service provider.
The term web hosting refers to the physical place where the site files would be located. In case of free web hosting the files are kept along with free hosting sites which make your files vulnerable to their control. If you choose a self-hosted blog, it implies that you pay certain amount of money for keeping the site files where you have more control over them.
Using and getting free hosting websites are much easier but on other hand getting self-hosted blog is also easy job. There are some disadvantages of using free web hosting plan.
The initial problem faced in free hosting is, you don’t get the advantage of selecting domain name of your choice. For instance if your business name is XYZ the URL would not be XYZ.com bit XYZ.blogspot.com. This makes the people hard to recall your URL. Also if you don’t have your exclusive domain name, people may conclude that you are new to the field and is not very keen about the business.
Another major problem with the free web hosting services is you get only fixed number or limited designing options to choose from. The designs and colors are few from which you have to select. So their would be no exclusiveness about your web design.
If you choose self-hosted option, than you get hundreds and thousands of options to choose from. The theme selection also has many options which can change the way your site looks and the color options are also plenty in number. This is just starting point. After fixing the website theme you can further customize the look of the website and feel of the site too.
As far as customization of the site is concerned, self-hosted sites stand better chances of getting it designed in the way you want. The overall functionality of your website can be improves by thousands of plug-ins available. Such thing can improve overall search engine optimization and the layout can also be designed according to one’s like. But such options and freedom are not available with the free hosting services.
