How To Create A Free Website

problem analysis solutionIf you have been wondering on how to create a free website fast for your business, you are going to enjoy reading this article.

I am going to give you several examples of ways to get your free website going; These are not going to take any special technical skills on your part, so do not be discouraged if you do not know HTML coding or how to set up a template for your website.

As a matter of fact, people who have the technical ability when it comes to building a website have the same opportunities to build a website for people with experience. You just need be able to point your mouse and click to get started and to be finished!

1. Blogger.

This is the free blogging platform owned by Google.

All you need to get started is a free account with Google to get set up at Blogger.com to use their free blogging system.

Google will provide you with multiple templates you can choose from just by clicking your mouse. They’ve improved these greatly over the years and some of them are so professional they look exactly like a website. You can use your new Google site as a blog or a website.

There are pros and cons or advantages and disadvantages of hosting your blog with Google. That is what you are doing when you use the Google Blogger platform to host and build your blog.

The advantage to using these as a free website is how quick it is to get set up, and how easy it is to use. Google offers training that is easy to follow as well.

The downside is that Google owns the hosting company where your new site will be hosted, and they can cancel you any time for any reason if you do not follow their terms of service. This has happened millions of time in the past.

One other disadvantage is you can not set a page or blog post as a static page. Their templates are newspaper style templates always showing your most recent post.

2. WordPress

Similar to Blogger, you can set up a free blog and use it as a website with WordPress. You will have more templates to choose from as there are literally thousands of WordPress templates in the marketplace today.

These are some of the most popular ways to create a free website. This is not a bad way to get started if you’re unsure of what you’re doing, and you can always move into an upgraded system as your business grows.

If you choose to host your own blog as a website you will need to purchase a domain name for around $15 a year and arrange for monthly hosting with a hosting company. This can be as cheap as around $5 a month and up.

WordPress is the second most popular free blogging platform behind Google. You will also have access to thousands of free WordPress themes you can download and use.

3. Weebly

You may have seen this advertised recently on television. creating content for your website

You can set up your own free website with their drop and drag website builder. This offers unlimited pages and free hosting to get started. They also offer upgraded programs for under $10 a month where you can get more features if you need them.

4. Wix

With over 80 million users, this is easily one of the largest free website building programs available on the Internet today. It doesn’t take any technical ability at all to create a stunning website with them.

This is a good way to express yourself both personally or for business use. They provide some of the most attractive themes online today.

Case For Not Going Free

I want to point out the biggest reasons for spending a little money and hosting the website or blog yourself and not using free services from the various companies I listed above. It simply comes down to control.

To be in control you need to pay for hosting and buy your own domain name. As I mentioned you can get a domain name for $15 a year and host for $5 to $10 a month.

Are you serious about the website you are building? You have to question just how serious you are if you will not spend this minimum amount of money.

Go Daddy

Hostings

This is especially true if you are going to make money on your website. If it is more then a hobby get serious and use professional hosting with a company such as Go Daddy or WA  professional hosting.

Paying for website hosting does not make it more complicated than a free hosting platform. It is just as easy and you do not need technical skills to get the job done!

Ok, these are my thoughts on building a free website or using professional hosting. The choice is up to you!

    I really want to setup a free website but i have been struggling with how and where to do it.  I never realized there were multiple options.

    I’m not really tech savvy like a lot of folks and really appreciate it.  I will definitely check out your recommendation at the bottom and check out that community!

    Thank you!

      Barry, over 15 years when I started I did not have a clue how to copy and paste. So I know exactly what you mean. What I will pay attention to are the programs that you are signing up with. I have lost many time and money in the past trying to make a better life for my family.There are lot of scams out there.

      Is better to look at the programs that ask you to join for free so you can test the waters first to see it is something you like. That is the reason I try Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago, and have not looked back since.

      If you see this is what you want, then I will work with you for you to help build your online income.  I take this business seriously and I will do what it takes to see others have the same success. Talk to you soon.

    Hi David,

    This is a cool post and gives some great information on the difference between the platforms. I’m a bit of a novice so for starters I want a free website and get to know what I am doing first and if an online business is for me. But hey can’t go wrong if it’s free

    Thanks mate for the info

      Hi Paul, when I saw Wealthy Affiliate I was glad that they offer a free program, so I can relate to you. I have just been scammed by a few companies online, so went in with my guards up. Within a few lessons I this is what I wanted, so I jumped with my 4 feet and got them wet. lol. So glad that I did.

      The good thing is that you are not alone, there are so many experts here want to see you succeed, and there are newbies as well going through the same process on a daily basis. So look at the free starter program and meet me inside. Talk to you soon.

    Hi David 

    Other than Blogger, I have tried all the platforms you cover in your post. I agree with you about hosting. If doing it for free was so great, every successful business owner would be doing it, but they’re not. 

    Starting a website is considerably less expensive than setting up other types of business but like you say, if you’re serious then you should be prepared to spend the little that is required. 

    The great thing about WA is you can start for free to see if suits you, which includes building a website and getting the initial training. Then if you’re serious you can upgrade easily and take your business to the next level.

      Hey Mark, good to know that you have tested the waters to see what is best, and what works for you in your line of business.

      Hope everyone realizes that starting to build a website is much easier than in the past, and anyone can do it themselves if they join Wealthy Affiliate. The training is by far the best on the internet and there is a community of people who are eager to see that you are successful.

      It is working for newbies as well as the experts. Thank you for the comment and insight, and I wish you all the best with your business.

      Hey Scot, thank you for the comment and kind words. All that you mention is what I have learned from Wealthy Affiliate and simplicity is what I took to heart while concentrating on writing quality content that can help my audience.

      With love to connect and brainstorm together within WA. I am doing so with a few members and would love to do the same with you as well. That is what makes this platform so great. See you inside.
