What are the advantages of using website hosting versus a free hosting service?

There are several advantages to website hosting over free hosting services, with the first being domain names. With website hosting, you have the ability to host your website at your domain name, whereas with free website hosting, you generally have a long website address under the hosting providers name (i.e. http://geocities.com/yourname/...).

Often times, free hosting services require their advertising to remain on your website. With website hosting through DomainIt, you control the content on your website!

Another big advantage of website hosting is the sizable increase in your disk space and bandwidth. With free hosting services, you typically have limited amounts of disk space and bandwidth. The larger amounts that come with your account allow you to hold more files and receive more visitors to your website.

Lastly, with website hosting with DomainIt, you have the ability to increase the functionality of your website with scripts, such as our free CGI scripts, databases and more.
