Why should you pay for hosting, if you can find free hosting plans on the internet? I know of so many people who opt for the free services that they find, not minding the banner ads that are placed on their sites to comply with the web host's TOS. There are actually free hosts that do not impose ads on their free accounts, as long as you maintain a minimum post count on their webnmaster forums. I have my reasons for opting to pay for hosting, as you seriouly "get what you pay for"...but I wanted to poll the rest of you all... So why pay for hosting?
