What About Ads
The free web hosting site still has to pay for their service set up and continued functioning of the site, therefore the revenue to do so, has to come from somewhere. This usually comes in the form of advertisers who are interested in posting their ads at the said free site.
This also means that the said ads are going to be featured on the individual’s site, without any need for consultation or approval from the said individual.
The individual will have no control over the postings at the site and this may or may not work as an advantage to the individual’s own content postings.
For some the time and effort taken to design their own content is not worth the intrusion of other ads and content, especially if it is going to eventually overshadow the individual’s posting.
This is basically one way of really understanding that there is nothing that is really free. Because of the no cost involved in being a part of the free web host, the individual will have no choice but to accept and hope that the other elements posted at the space will be less overwhelming and more beneficial to the individual’s own agenda.
For some this scenario is acceptable because they are only interested in using the free host site as an experimental phase or a testing ground, for their endeavors, thus the other elements are not really something they would be overly concerned about.
