Everyone knows that hosting is a must and a good one is better.
Some people care more some people care less. Having a free hosting can take its toll so paying a small fee will reflect in speed, space, functionality and of course needless headaches.

Some time ago a " hosting forever" services came up offering to host your site forever for a certain fee which sometimes can get up to 100$ + - .
The question that arise is- does it worth it.
If its a well known hosting service you may consider the option. But to promise to host your site forever is still a doubtful offer because "Issues " with a hosting is something that many people dealt with.

So the question is whether to pay once a --- or to pay forever.
I personally never used a pay for life hosting service and would like to hear if someone did and what are their impressions up until now.

Hosting Forever


Forever is a long time. How do you know that the hosting company won't go bankrupt and shut down 2 years from now?

I just did some searches for "forever hosting", "lifetime hosting" and "permanent hosting", and didn't find much. And what I did find is being offered by companies I've never heard of.
