The only difference is the hosting features included. These features include additional disk storage, data transfer, more scripting support, more email accounts, etc.

Free web hosting is highly unreliable. There are a few reliable service providers out there but trying  to identify a reliable web host can be a daunting task especially with so many service providers and options available nowadays.

Free web hosting saves you money but it has no domain names, limited software options and limited space. However if you just want to experiment and you’re not using it for business then it’s OK.

If you have a business website and can't afford your site going down for long, then you should go for the paid hosting. Also free web hosting addresses are too long and contain the name of the free hosting site.

1. Usually free hoster has a stipulation to put his ads on your website.
2. Free hosting has limited functionality and storage capacity
3. Free hosting might have also limited bandwidth

All the points above can be avoided by purchasing dedicated hosting.

As we all know in order to make our website visible to the world, it has to be hosted on a web server. In free web hosting the difference is it is free and allows a user to have his site hosted free of charge. There are no fees when uploading files to the server.
On the other hand, paid web hosting services charge a small fee for website owners host their websites. Payment to web hosting services is prescribed based on monthly intervals.
Another difference is speed; free web hosting services usually restrict the amount of bandwidth to a site.
