    If it stoped been profitable for you then yeah. Many hosting service providers specially those just starting out and are looking to write a name for themselves do offer free hosting as a way to let people test your service and eventually upselling them a paid service.

    Because your site can be shutten down 10 times easily. Just Imagine that you are doing $100 a day with It and the next day the free hosting Company decides to close it

    That's why people make Backups. And what kind of cheap nasty twat would use free hosting on a 3k a month site.

    There is no guarantee for your data's backup and limited feature options.

    Available more cheap cheap and best support hosting monthly - $3 to $5 ranges.

    I think if you have a vision and want to start small to get into something you can try it, but once traffic rises the free hosts also lack of performance and speed, so I would then switch to a paid hosting (which is insanely cheap these days)

    yes,

    -slower than paid hosting
    -can lose files and the company wont care.

    There are hosting plans these days that costs next to nothing.

    If it’s a shared IP (which I’m assuming it is) then you’re most likely sharing the IP with a bunch bad sites that will get your site deindexed.

    Ask yourself... If you feel like it then stop it. Or else everything is fine. Just make sure you download the latest backup. That's it.
