    Then it is better to forget about it because it is a waste of time?

    A lot of the hosting providers out there these days offer very affordable deals for webmasters. If you are not willing to buy hosting at such low rates then you should most probably not be in any business. It's a small investment but can pay long time.

    At first when I asked I was mostly meaning to build a website and try different things like testing only to see what is better and what is not. I know that paid hosting is going to be better and also better for business. I think if some people see you using free web hosting for your business website then they might not think too good of you if you can't even buy cheap web hosting and it will hurt your success.

    Absolutely!

    If you are just going to use the free hosting plan to test the waters then I would suggest you to go ahead.

    Ok thank you. I keep changing my mind if I want to try it for testing but put real sites on a good paid hosting.

    Yes, if you have any project which you want to test or host online without paying anything to web hosting providers then free web hosting is the king choice for you. you can easily choose an unlimited free web hosting provider who can fulfil your hosting requirement.

    It's free for a reason right?

    Can't trust a business that has ads placed all over their site right? that's how they make most of their money.

    I think NO, because free hosting will limit you more features to use or to test hence you should go with a cheap web hosting plan like a VPS, just start with $5 per month, you may own a VPS and start testing server and control panels for your websites before publishing it to online.

    $5 for VPS ??? I must be living under a rock. I haven't seen those cheap prices anywhere. 90% of the websites that I had visited in 14 years start off at $15 a month. Do you a search and I can almost bet that you will find shared web hosting with unlimited bandwith and traffic for under $5 a month. Great for testing, this way you know your website will not get shut down.

    You can check this forum https://forumweb.hosting/marketplace/categories/vps-hosting-offers.8/
    there are more good VPS offers that start from $5
    for example, this VPS offer is starting from $2 https://forumweb.hosting/marketplac...49-off-for-life.1757/field?field=hostingplans
    Yes I can even I can got some cheaper but I would go with a VPS, it is better for secure and resource.
