Paying monthly hosting is good because there is no lock-in or big upfront investment, but there are also some trade-offs to choose from this type of hosting.

First of all, as you expect, you will usually pay a higher price per month. This is because when the hosts provide a monthly billing option, they usually have a discount that they will give you on several months of shopping in a month.

There are some little things to consider ...

First of all, for some hosts that offer a free domain name, they are usually applicable only for an annual purchase. For example, GoDaddy gives a free domain name for the annual plan purchase, but not those who make monthly payments.

If you make monthly payments, then some hosts may take a separate setup fee once. It has become less common, and any host from this list currently does not charge setup, but there is still some attention to it.
