The Importance of Web Hosting
For the first category, i will say that web hosting is important because even in case of your Blogs or Squido Lenses or other blogging platforms, web hosting is still there but it is just being paid for and managed by the blogging platform itself and you are just there to create content without worrying about web hosting.

- You are left at the mercy of the blogging platform Terms of service and one sweet day , they might just wipe your website off the face of internet without even contacting you first. In case of your own web hosting you will be in charge of things and have control of your website in true sense.
- When you are not having any web hosting of your own, you simply can not correct things when these go wrong. There is no support etc to take you through all through the trouble.
