Free is always good , but it is not always better . Some limitation to free hosting are that they often times do not offer the same tools and control panel that the "paid" hosting companies offer . Also, a large majority of the "FREE" hosts have limitations on your control, often times plug a portion of your free pages with ads, and you may not have the
ability to use you own domain name.
With the price of computer hardware coming down drastically, "paid" hosting companies have almost
reached a point where they are free. You can now find good hosting for under $5/month, whereas
a couple years back you would easily be looking at over $30 (not to mention you get more space, bandwidth, an tools with the current packages!) .
Here is a list of the top recommended PAID hosts (by the way, we use all of these hosts
for our websites).

We understand that when you start out within the Internet marketing realm you may not have
a fat wallet to support the costs of web development (we were once in the same position). You can use the tools, services , and information in this section to get a website up and
running for absolutely no cost, removing the burden of initial overhead. In saying this, once
you do begin earning some money, you may want to create your own website , get your own hosting, and have your own domain name. You gain much more control and versatility if you do have your own website.
