Hello,

For a provider to offer free-hosting what features would you want to see in this? Storage ? Bandwidth? Other Features?

Serious suggestions only-I appreciate it.

Thanks,

Knowing a few people that have started companies that either started out by offering free services or that still do - I can tell you that it's a lot of work and a huge target for fraud, spam, phishing, and other illegal activities.

If you do decide to offer free webhosting you're going to have to keep a tight reign on it. In my honest opinion it's not worth the effort but I do wish you the best of luck.

It may work only if you offer a Free account with very low resources and no email (so no spamming issues) and allow clients to upgrade to a Premium version.

But very rarely do those looking for a free hosting upgrade. Those using free service don't care so much about performance, uptime, support etc. So yeah, just isn't worth it.

If you want to provide free hosting for sites, then everything is as usual, access to upload files to it in order to manage the site. To change it to your liking.

I know at least a few free hosts that have been in this market for a long time and are quite successful. And at the same time, the service of free hosting has been offered almost from the beginning of its existence. From which I made a simple logical conclusion long ago - it is beneficial for them. But! All these are quite large companies with significant investments in this business, and from the start! Draw your own conclusions. ;)
