    Default Where do Free hosting providers make money?
    Hi,

    Anyone know how free hosting providers make any profit without using the Advertisement option? Basically no Ads free Hosting services.

    Thanks,

    Hani

    Honestly? They don't. Even those with ads generally don't make enough money to cover the costs. As Brinks said, paid upgrades is probably the best way to recover some of the costs. Paid upgrades don't happen nearly as often as you might think, as people looking for free hosting are doing it because they want...well...free hosting. If they wanted to pay, they would likely just go with a paid host in the first place. And that said, you need quite a few paid upgrades to recover the cost, even on the cheapest of servers.

    They do it by putting advertisement on their client websites and also can do it for backlinks too.

    They generally make money by adds or paid upgrade. Most of the features are paid in hosting service that only paid users can use.

    For us personally, we operate on a freemium level(and not all clients choose to start with free), with our free plan being by application request/approval only so we can weed out any potential bad accounts.

    I would say that it would certainly be tough to make money completely through ads without any sort of paid option.
