Which is right for you?

Changing Hosting Companies

Because most free hosting companies put your website underneath their domain at an address like, if you change hosting companies, your domain name will change, too. You could partly work around this problem by putting a notice at your old address that points people to your new address, but that's a bother (at best) for people visiting your site.

No matter what, you'll lose your position and ranking in Google and other search engines... you'll have to start over and wait for your new location to be established and ranked.

In general, you can move your site to any hosting company and keep your domain name. (You can change registrars every 60 days.) Your customers, friends, fans, ... won't know that anything's changed, and search engines won't lose you either. (Moving takes some preparation and planning. can help.)
