Nowadays, we know that most business owners want to have a professional website but at the same time keep the cost low, which is understandable. This is the primary reason why business owners are extremely tempted to get a free website. If you Google “Free website for my business” you will probably find thousands of companies offering free websites. Getting a “free” website is something that you should avoid at all costs and here are some reasons why.
- Unprofessional domain name. Most companies offering free websites assign you a domain name similar to businessname.TheBestFreeWebsites.com. This is very unprofessional and it will harm your business credibility. Most of your possible customers are looking for the best quality and the best service, these types of domains make your company look cheap and unsuccessful.
- Inappropriate Ads. Most of the “free” websites have ads you don’t select. Sometimes these ads can be inappropriate for your type of business.
- They sell your information.
- Limited Pages
- No responsive designs
- No professional e-mails
- Poor SEO
These are only some of the reasons why you shouldn’t get a free website.
