You can learn how to make a free website fast as long as you follow these guidelines below. Keep in mind that this guide is for people who want their own domain name, also known as a URL, and website hosted themselves.
For those of you who don’t mind the lack of control behind your website you can use a third party company to host your website such as Xanga.com, Blogger.com, MySpace.com (for musicians and young adults), and Piczo.com (for teenagers).
Here are three basic steps that you can follow that will teach you how to make a free website and fast!
Step #1 – Cheap Hosting
Yes even though your website may be free, you still need to pay for hosting. Hosting is where all your website files are stored and allow your website to be displayed to the world. Without hosting no one will be able to see your site.
To make your free website fast I recommend firstly getting a cheap hosting account. Hosting on average costs about $10 a month.
Step #2 – Get Your Free Domain
As mentioned, some hosting companies will give you a free domain upon you joining their company. So pick a domain name that you like that relates to whatever your website is about – It could be your first and last name, your company name or even a website dedicated to your favourite movie.
Step #3 – Get Your Free Website!
One of the fastest and easy ways you can get your website done is using WordPress.org. Go to WordPress.org or search online for free WordPress templates and voila! All you need to do is customize it to your needs. You can add your website name to the template and start blogging. It’s that simple.
Where the confusing part comes in is that people don’t know how to combine their domain, hosting and website together. Don’t fret. You can always Google or go to the help sections of hosting websites and find out more information there.
