Thanks in advance.
It depends what you want to do with your site. If you want to run a hobby then free web hosting will be good but for a commercial website then it isn't. Free things always have catch and as per free web hosting you won't be in control. There will be ads displayed on your site which you won't have any control.
The price of hosting is so low now a days. how can you not afford it in the long run.
For a serious site, especially one related to your business, I would shy away from free hosting. You're not going to get the same service level guarantees that you would receive with paid hosting.
The IP's will be on blacklists, so the chances of your emails getting to any company wih a firewall are 0
Free web hosting is good if you are making a site just for fun and for business trial. There are features which are not available in free web hosting. I even tried once but was not happy with the service I get so switched to a paid one.
Nothing comes for free in these days and even if it comes people will view with eyes of suspicion. We will have a look at different types of free web hosting services and how to select the best of the free web-hosting providers.
The first thing is how to find free web hosting providers that are available. One can find them by browsing the net and conducting a thorough search on Google. There are many service providers that offer free web hosting services and even claim that they are the best in the industry. Even though one cannot expect everything and all advanced features from the providers as they are providing the services for free of cost, one has to make sure that free web hosting providers offer the following features in the web hosting.
Important features to look for
One should make sure the providers offer the most essential features like more than 1 GB bandwidth, more than 100MB disk space, allows hosting of your own domain, allows even free sub domain eg-yourname.freewebhostprovier.com with out permitting advertisements on your site.
All these features gives your website a new look and enhances the appearance of the website attracting new traffic.
What is being offered by some good free web hosting providers?
Most of the reputed free web-hosting providers offer attractive packages. Many packages include enabling you to add own advertisements, excellent reliability but this is had to determine, community forum helping you to discuss about your websites, options for email accounts, databases like MySQL along with PHP and CGI, Direct Admin Control Panel or cPanel Control Panel and Automatic Software Installer enabling you to install blog on your website with in minutes.
All these packages helps you in having excellent and improved control on the maintenance of your website rather than depend on the providers even for small things.
The ultimate question: Are web hosting providers any good?
One should not have high expectations from free web hosting providers but there are many advantages from these providers. It is only the question of selecting the most reliable service providers that offer 24/7 online customer service helping you to come out of the problems you encounter when hosting your website.
There are many web-hosting providers offering all the standard features of hosting along with excellent resource allocation. One should go though the terms and conditions to understand what types of websites are allowed for free web hosting by the providers. Its only spending some time to read the reviews and ensuring that the hosting speed is good enough to host your website in a stable manner.
If you happen to know any free web hosting providers or, even better, the owner of free web hosting provider yourself, please comment on this article with what you have on offer.
I guess free hosting would be fine for just setting up your 1st site or blog but if you have a website as a business you need reliable hosting,i have all my sites hosted with Linkhoster.net they provide ultra reliable hosting at affordable prices and the support is 1st class.These sites that provide free hosting cannot do it for free so i guess they must have some form of adverts running all over the site to help pay for the host.
If you are serious about being in business with a website that you rely on revenue always go for the best you can afford,its cheaper in the long run.
I havent had any problems with free account in freehostia.com. The custmer support works well and its reliable, however you still have to pay for domain names and when you want SMTP to be switched on and i run out from database storage as well very quickly.
Good for you veikoh...
In general, paid hosting is wise option in term of reliability and support. don't you think?

It depends what do you mean by paid hosting? What Im talking a a free starter package and when you need more, then you start to pay. It all depends what kind of pricing model you have... having resources just in stand by mode isnt much viable business for hosting provider as well.
