A web hosting can be both free and paid. But why you should buy solution if you can get one for free online? The answer is quite simple.
A free hosting solution usually provides with very limited resources: this can be useful as a training for your skills but not enough fulfilling for a professional website.

A free hosting does not provide you with the opportunity to use several plugins online and does not offer any guarantee in terms of backup in case of hacking attacks.
Usually, a free hosting solutions provides you with limited web space, limited bandwidth, an obligation in terms of displaying banners on the website, at least one mailbox and occasionally the support for the most popular technologies online, such as Apache servers, PHP and MySQL database. Sometimes a free hosting allows to use Wordpress or to host only static websites using HTML and CSS style files. These solutions are provided by Internet Service Provider (ISP), such as Tiscali and Libero, or hoster such as Altervista.
