Your service provider may change SLA without informing you. He doesn’t like to explain you why he did this because he is giving free service. The hosting service might shut down without any notice. Shut down can lead to downtime until they shift the provider. Downtime can lead to decreased traffic on your site. It can also harm your site in some other ways. It may not provide backups. having no backups can lead to losing every bit of data if the site crashes. Your service provider may start demanding some amount later.
You may fascinate why companies are providing free website hosting…. Yes, they provide free hosting but they charge for advertisements on free websites. They make money in this way. So it is not a big deal for them. Free hosting may lack customization. There may be fewer resources for you in free website hosting or they demand money for customization. While in paid hosting there are definitely more resources. Also, you can customize easily what you want.
