Wanted to have a free website for your business or just for blogging ? Then here’s how you can make a free blog or website.
For a newbie its very difficult to decide from where he should start to set up a free website. He would get many sites claiming to give free sites but whether its really worth using those sites ? I’ll clearly say no for some obvious reasons.
- First reason is you won’t be able to set up a template of your own choice for your blog or website.
- You may not have complete access to add important plugins,widgets or coding.
- There is no guarantee of up time.
So its better to avoid those website.
Here is list of trusted sites where you can have a free blog or a website :
1) Google Blogger / BlogSpot : First comes the search engine giant Google which offers a lot of free services to us. One of these services is Blogger. You can easily set up a blog of your choice and the good thing is that you can customize it in your way.
As its so popular you don’t need to take headache of templates. You will get premium quality templates for setting up a professional blog or website. Along with that you also get SEO features in your blog like permalinks, image alt tags and all for free. So Blogger is good to start with.
2) WordPress : WordPress is the blogging platform what we all love. Its most catchy feature is its User Interface which gives its bloggers a good blogging experience. Though it doesn’t have the features like Google Blogger due to which its not getting first rank. But if you have your own domain name and hosting then it is best. For a new blogger like me its very easy to start with. You will simply love its Dashboard interface.
Moreover if you have domain and hosting then you have treasure of themes for WordPress which can beat any professional site and plugins make it easy for blogger to add features without customizing coding of the theme.
So these were two main sites where you can have a free blog or website.
