What to look for when considering free and hosted options for your site or blog

In most cases this is fine and if there are items there that you want to back up on your own via download or copy/paste, that is all you will need. If you aren't comfortable with that and do rely on your 'free' account for income, I would suggest looking to move into a hosted and more secure solution. That said, know that the 'free' services have a business need to maintain uptime and availability of content so the likely hood of something happening is low, but they are providing a little CYA for themselves justincase something happens.

  • Great recommendations, Kate! I don't really need to use some of them at this point (although I guess I should back my blog posts up somewhere :-)), but good for future reference. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
