    Hello, i was wondering about seo urls.
    What is the best option if i use a 2 part keyword like "free hosting" in my url
    Example: domain/free-hosting
    or: domain/freehosting
    or: domain/free_hosting
    And what length is the best ?
    Would this still be seo friendly ?
    domain/free-hosting/dedicated-hosting/
    And this
    domain/free-hosting/dedicated-hosting/the-ins-and-outs
    or is this better
    domain/dedicated-hosting/
    ??

    Domain.com/category/sub-category. And for gods sake, no underscores "_".

    There is no right and wrong answer. If you look through the SERPs you'll see various types of SEO friendly URLs ranking. 5 years ago this mattered a lot, not so much today.

    There is no correct answer here, all the variants will work.
    free-hosting is better than freehosting and free_hosting, but from the visitor's point of view, not regarding to SEO. And the less levels your domain has, the better.

    Don't use any punctuation in domain name. Categories, sub categories and products should go with "-"
