Free Magento Hosting

Hi,

 I have found a company that have free 12 months magento hosting, to be honest the package they offer is pretty much the same as my current hosting company but with the cost save and other issues I am thinking of moving over. The issue I have though is that if I move hosting compies would I still the keep the orders in admin I have already and would this effect things like google ranking etc? basiclay is it worth the hassle?

i dont see a reason to move to free hosting, unless your business has no profit at all, and you keep your shop just as a toy for a weekends...

with the wrong approach you will have more problems than you think, especially if you are trying to save money...

usually with the hosting you have to plan before you install your shop.

Re: Free Magento Hosting

In my opinion, If you host especially with a free host provider it may hurt your ranking as there is chances that googlebot may encounters a "404 error page" due to poor uptime and other problem.

Re: Free Magento Hosting

Never using free hosting for magento. It will never work. It just take your time and money.

Re: Free Magento Hosting

Most free webhosting companies don't care about your business and will drop you as soon as it starts costing them too much money.

 

As per the other advice above don't move to free webhosting in order to reduce costs, instead consider reducing your current hosting to a smaller package and optimizing your code / disabling modules not needed.

This thread is from 2+ years ago so I doubt that the offer still exist today. 

 

Once again it is never advisable to go for a free hosting service especially for an eCommerce store not just because of performance and uptime but also security. You will never know if your free hosting provider is taking good care of the server security which is very important in an eCommerce store that deals with customer details and payment data.

Re: Free Magento Hosting

Don't ever try Free hosting to host your Magento theme if you want to start a serious business. Free theme does'nt have enough resource to handle request to a Magento store and you will encounter downtime when the number of concurrent request increase.

I suggest to use Nexcess, SiteGround, Aspiration hosting if you want to look for affordable Magento hosting.

Re: Free Magento Hosting

The best option is to don't choose free hosting. Downtime leads to poor performance of your website, server errors and the waste of time. There are many hosting providers in the market providing plans according to requirements at affordable prices.
