If at a later stage of development you decide to order some of above support items "a la carte," you'll find out outrageous cost of them...so much for a free hosting account!
All above shouldn't imply there are no legitimate business uses for a free hosting account, there are! They can be used for hosting pages that link back to your main website, for re-directed URL's, for hosting any kind of web page that doesn't need any of advanced support options of your main business website.
They can also be used for showcasing individual products contained within your main website with a link back to your landing page. They can increase your SE ranking if they are well designed with tight, relevant copy that goes well with your main website. Quality and accuracy do have their payoff!
Another important, and often erroneous point, is that it will help your main website have a wider appeal to many of SE's because of incoming links. However, incoming links from free hosting accounts are not considered quality links by SE's.
Used with insight and vision, free hosting services can ad value to your web operation. The main point to keep in mind is that same care and preparation given to your main website should also be given to your free websites. The quality of writing and production should be to help your main website, not to detract from it.
