If you go with free hsoting service then there are limitatios on support by host and resources received. Hence go with affordable SSD shared hosting services.

If you want to stay happy and peace of mind, then, I would recommend you to choose Cloud hosting for your website instead of any other hosting, Because, If you go with any other hosting then you will be facing server issues, site loading issues and security issues with your websites. I am using managed cloud hosting for a long time and all my websites are performing very well.

If you are building a website just for fun then you may choose FREE hosting services but if you are looking to make business or Company website then you should certainly opt for the paid hosting services. If your website is on small scale and are likely to not have lots of traffic and data then you may opt for the shared hosting which is lower in price but if you have a really big website with lots of data in it and also would have lots of traffic then you should opt for the dedicated server which is a pricier option but it would make sure that your website will keep active all the time without any issues and downtime.

If you are planning to host a static HTML site, it would be cheap and stable to host it all over a CDN. If you were to shift gears to something like WordPress, then a PaaS where you have less control and less responsibility would likely be ideal for a low traffic, small charity. The more control you get, the more responsibility and work you take on.

So unless you have a clear and vital reason to go with an infrastructure solution and you're interested/willing to own a stack from top to bottom, I'd go with a more plug and play approach that is why i would suggest you to check godaddy or Siteground .

Hope it helps!

Paid hosting is always better.

- At worst, free hosting is unreliable, run by kids, etc,
- At best, it has severe limits that makes it a nuisance to use. One of the only decent free hosts is x10hosting.com, which is really just a no-cost intro tier to their paid hosting at x10premium.

More important than free vs. paid is the quality of the host. Some paid hosts are just as lousy, maybe even worse than, even a bad free host.

SSD is not necessarily a mark of quality. 10k/15k RAID and even fast SATA disks, in a RAID array, can sometimes be quite adequate. It really depends on the server setup and server population. The bottleneck is necessarily the I/O. In (too) many cases, SSD just enables the host to stuff more clients on a server, so speed gains never really happen.

Again, you must carefully pick a host!

"Cloud" is a loose term that can mean almost anything. Everything from a mere synonym for "online" to an actual cloud infrastructure that uses N+1 redundancy, utility billing, and on-demand scaleable resource. So don't be gullible and fall for marketing hooey.

Server issues will happen anywhere, on anything. The most important issue is how often, and how the hosts responds to it. Again, quality host is important.

Even then, free hosting can make what's supposed to be fun personal/hobby a miserable experience. All hobbies have costs, and you can surely budget a few annual dollars to avoid headaches.

The problem is that many people don't understand what is "small" and what is "large". It's not just about visitors, but also the application in use. Resources are the real limiter. General speaking:
- Shared = few thousand or less (4 digits)
- VPS/semi-dedicated = under 1 million (5-6 digits)
- dedicated = millions (7+ digits)

But again, it depends on your code. This site doesn't have 1M monthly, but the various coding on the site requires more than VPS/semi-dedi will allow. So dedicated is needed.

Most likely, if you have mere HTML site, then CDN will be too complicated. And honestly, unnecessary.

PaaS is "platform as a service", and is (usually) a type of true cloud infrastructure. But it's also more complicated than mere web hosting. So again, not really something that a newbie should mess with -- not for a person still trying to decide between free and paid.

As you state, more control = more work (and more headaches!)

Yes, shared from hosts like Godaddy or Siteground works well. There are quite a few hosts that we've reviewed on this site, including those and others like InMotion, Stablehost, and more.

Linode is a VPS -- and unmanaged at that. For this person, an obvious newbie to the hosting world, that would be a disaster. Not to mention that Linode has really fallen in quality and popularity in the last 10 years. Even if I did want an unmanaged VPS, I'm not sure that's be my first or even 10th suggestion.

Something like IOzoom is superior.
