    Home Page:
    Your monthly bandwidth will be used up a LOT faster and unless you have a fast internet connection, your pages will be loaded slowly for the visitors. And you will have to do a lot of maintenance
    You can get hosting for $3 a month to save yourself the trouble

    I'd use a self hosted site simply for displaying information or light weight mini-sites rather than blogs or web 2.0 platforms
