Free Web Hosting Services

free top web hosting servicesList of top 50 free web hosting services. In order to be able to use it, first you have to register first with free domain like co.cc or cz.cc or top paid domain like example.com. After which you may register to one of the following free web hosting services.

I should remind you though, that a free web hosting has its limitation in terms of disk space and bandwith. It also has the bad habit of suspending your account at anytime any place without prior notice. So, a free hosting is supposed to be used for training ground only.

If you feel prepared to go with a paid hosting and paid domain, go for it. There is no need to use any free hosting and free domain.

Filezilla FTP Client

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. And Filezilla is the most popular FTP so far.
Filezilla ftp client is used as another way to access the server of our cpanel (control panel) of webhosting we use to host a self-hosted blog or website. Especially important to use Filezilla to upload a big file or files within a folder from a PC into a webhosting. There are many free ftp on the internet. But Filezilla is the most popular and most reliable one.

If you have a self-hosted blog, having Filezilla installed on your PC is a must. Not for those who run a free blog such as blogger.com or wordpress.com in which case you do not need and cannot use FTP.

These are the software details:

Name of software: Filezilla
Website: filezilla-project.org
Download: Free download for all kind of OS (operating system)
Installation: After download, just double-click the .exe file. The process will be self-explanatory.

How to setup, connect and integrate your server with Filezilla so that you can transfer (upload / download) a file or many files within a folder to your wehbosting :

1. Click Filezilla icon in you desktop
2. Click "New Site"
3. I name it fatihsyuhud
4. In "Hosts" I enter fatihsyuhud.com
5. Port 21 (by default)
6. Server Type: FTP (by default)
7. Logontype: check "Normal"
8. User: your username when login into your cpanel
9. Password: your password to enter your cpanel
10. Click "Save and Exit". Done.

From now whenever I want to upload file to my server, I just click "Filezilla" in my desktop -> click fatihsyuhud -> click Connect. There will be two boxes showing up, left side and right side. Left side consist of files in my computers, while right side box is files in my webhosting.

Whenever I want to upload a file, I just press the file from left-side and drag it into the right side, in a place I want it to put.

Example, I want to put file of sideblog plugin, I will drag the "sideblog.php" into public_html -> wp-content -> plugins -> put plugins here.

Ftp Filezilla can also be used to change file attributes knows as CHMOD. Click the file in the webhost -> right-click -> File attributes -> check the box as you wish. E.g. from 666 into 755 etc.

Meanwhile Rand Fish of Seomoz.org offers 21 tips & trick to increase your blog traffics. The excerpt:

Participate at Related Forums & Blogs

Whatever industry or niche you're in, there are bloggers, forums and an online community that's already active.

Tag Your Content. Technorati is the first place that you should be tagging posts.
Link Intelligently

... quoting other bloggers or online sources (or even discussing their ideas) without linking to them is considered bad etiquette and can earn you scorn that could cost you links from those sources in the future. It's almost always better to be over-generous with links than under-generous.

Invite Guest Bloggers

Asking a well known personality in your niche to contribute a short blog on their subject of expertise is a great way to grow the value and reach of your blog.

Eschew Advertising (Until You're Popular)
Go Beyond Text in Your Posts

Add images, interactive elements, the occasional multimedia content and some clever charts & graphs.

Build a Brand. Possibly one of the most important aspects of all in blogging is brand-building.
