- Your website will be on a subdomain like this – yoursitename.blogspot.com or yoursitename.wordpress.com which looks unprofessional.
- Second major drawback of free website is that they can remove your website if you do not follow their terms and conditions or guidelines. Since a free website is not your 100% owned property, so they can remove it if they find anything wrong. I have lost so many of my free websites on Blogger and WordPress without notice. And most of the time your competitor will flag your website and at the end you can lose it.
If you are serious about making money online then do not go for a free website. It is highly recommended that create your website in your own hosting server and it comes very cheap.
