    I've seen a lot of debate going on between free forum hosting and paid forum hosting. Which do you think is better?

    I, personally, don't see what is wrong with free forum hosting. My forum has never been down, the admin panel is easy to manage/navigate and I've always gotten the help I needed from the support system. I think a free forum host is a great way for a first time admin to start up their forum.

    The only thing about free forum hosts is that they almost always have advertisements. I can't stand having a banner ad on my forum, especially when they put it at the top and it's a 728x90 one.

    According to my opinion i feel the Paid hosting is more reliable than free hosting. If it is for business purpose than go for paid hosting as it is better to spend some money instead to take any risk. In most paid hosting customer get 24/7 technical support. However in free hosting you may experience great delay in getting reply to your support related queries. Free hosting has many other drawbacks as well. Free hosting server are normally oversold and also loaded with advertising which not only slows down your websites but may at times also result in sites being unresolved. Free hosting is less secured moreover you may not get all hosting features. There could be other disadvantages of free hosting as well.
    If you are searching for excellent tech support, cheap and reliable hosting provider for your best need it will never be easier for you. Because
    there are more than million of hosting providers to select and appraise them,You should choose hosting based upon the space that you
    need,amount of traffic your site will get and other such factors. I personally use http://www.thewebpole.com/hosting/we...4&pl_id=456994 for my hosting need since past two years i never had any issue with my web space and I’m paying less for my webspace . After searching over many internet resources and web hosting reviews it is seems to be fit for my all hosting need.you can go with them on a monthly basis .I host all my sites there and they are friendly and can assist you with whatever you need.

    For me it depends on what i am using hosting. If i am using for some test projects and small forums its okay to have free hosting because you don't need anything bigger then that. But if i am doing some big project that is going to be live on Internet then i like to use paid hosting for it.
