As South Africans, we love free things. But sometimes in Mzansi, getting a free thing means participating in something you don’t particularly enjoy, such as timeshare meetings or surveys.
Another thing to consider is that the “free” doesn’t always mean free and comes with hidden costs. With us, we are upfront with our website hosting fees. There are no frills or hidden fees.
There is a saying, perhaps you have heard it: “nothing is for free in business”. Or in life for that matter, and you always end up paying some way or another down the line. And this is something you can easily experience with service providers offering free hosting services.
This is so true when it comes to free website hosting because you either lose control of your domain, subject yourself or your clients to marketing and adverts, or you have limitations imposed on you when it comes to design or code. This can have a negative effect on your business website.
Many free web hosting solutions and free website builders display their own links or services on your actual website. When it comes to creating a good impression, many clients ‘get turned off’ when a business is using free solutions but asking for a professional fee for the services and products they offer.
We recommend not going with a free website hosting solution, and rather using a well-priced one with an excellent reputation! Please take a quick look at our web services hosting range. We really would love to hear from you.
Most “free” services come with terms and conditions. And often these terms and conditions can have adverse effects on your website. Reach out to us for affordable hosting packages we know will suit your business needs.
