The Choices We Make

When I went on to start blogging, I've always been undecided with either going for the free hosting services available or would I establish myself in as a unique individual with my on domain name. The choice isn't as simple as choosing which movie to watch. Well even that could be confusing sometimes. Of course, this is one of those choices that we make that could make or break our existence in the web.
There are pros and cons on both sides. The first one being that the free service is free; but what do you really get from a free service. It's obvious that you have to be tied with them and your site would need to advertise them or their partners constantly. These of course are distractions from your sites' purpose, unless you were paid for having them there. On the other hand, you would need to spend on your own domain, but it's probably worth it. You can choose the name of your site, and you will defnitely have control over the content.
But the biggest factor for a paid service is choosing the provider. Web hosting doesn't come cheap, but you'd have to be sure with whom you pay for the service. Of course, everything is done online, you'd need to have both patience and trust to acquire the services of a website hosting provider. Well, to make your choice easier, you'd need to know who are the top website hosts out there. This is where web hosts' ratings or reviews come in handy. You'd get the information you need to make an informed choice on web hosts.
