    Hello,

    I've just recently found out, that you can have web hosting for free! :) However, are free hosting platforms reliable and quick enough for hosting landing pages for affiliate products?

    Thanks.

    Your best choice is to hos them with paid hosting.
    Anyway free hosting can do the job too, just be sure that you go for a good free hosting with 99% uptime and that it is ads free

    What about the speeds? Are free hosting services as responsive as paid ones? Thanks.

    If you are short of funds OP then use free hosting, otherwise I don't really see the point.

    You can use free hosting for testing but paid hosting is pretty cheap now.

    No, they are not. Just go for a paid hosting (except fatcow and iPage) if you can afford one.

    OK, thanks guys, I'll go with paid hosting then. $100 bucks per year for testing won't kill me.

    Free hosting all the way! Make a few sales/leads and maybe after that start buying stuff. Pay for hosting -> earn $0 -> not smart. Paid hosting is good when you are already making $ and a downtime will results in less money. Start with $0 investment and you will be a successful IMer.

    Money site and free hosting don't go well together.

    Just type "free hosting" in Google and you'll get a lot of options.

    Yes. Try them out a few. I've decided to go for a paid hosting, tho. But free is great for testing.

    When you're working out the bugs on a new marketing strategy it's usually better to go mo to mo. Keep your eye out and u can score some good deals...

    According to me, free hosting may be ideal for those who only want to test their site. Free web hosting will not offer you a professional looking website and also you will not get best support services from your Hosting provider in free Hosting. Moreover, you don?t have any uptime or data protection guarantee in Free hosting. So, if it is matter of hosting any business website, Premium(paid) Hosting is the best option instead of Free Hosting.
