How to set up a Website for Free | Setting a Free Domain Name and Hosting

Free Websites

If you want to have your own website but you do not want to spend any money then you have found the information you were looking for.

There are several "free" website providers to choose from but most of them will add their own ads all over your site which is probably not what you were looking for.

The info provided by this page will allow you to set up your own website, completely free, no ads and exactly like any other website on the Internet.

Free Domain

First thing you must do is to choose your domain name.

This step is very important as it will make your site more easily found by search engines and therefore by other people.

Free Hosting services

After setting up your own Free Domain Name it is now time to find the best Free Hosting supplier to host your domain.

Next I will give you several choices but I will only recommend the one I still have been using.

I have tried other free web hosting services but $0.00 webhost was the only one who kept delivering a complete set of tools which allow you to create and control your free website just like you had paid for it.

$0.00 Webhost

$0.00 webhost features:

  • No Ads or Banners! You can even add your own ads!
  • Disk Space - 1500 MB
  • Bandwidth - 100,000 MB = 100 GB!
  • Domains Allowed - Unlimited
  • Control Panel - Latest cPanel
  • Unrestricted PHP and MySQL databases
  • Instant Backups
  • Web Mail with spam protection
  • Website Builder

And there is more but what makes me use $000WebHost is the fact that it never let your site become off line - 99% uptime.

And I have been positively surprised because until now I only had one problem and it was corrected by their support in a few hours.

So you will also get a full support assistance service for free!


Beside their own Website builder they also have lots of website templates you can use and if this is not enough you can always install WordPress and create your own unique website.

I have use WordPress because of all the themes and plugins directories available but also because of its customizing concept. This allows you to change almost every detail of your new site.

The word 'free' is a good word! I do want to do my own website - but trying it all for free makes a whole lot of sense. I'm going to use what you use - can't beat a personal recommendation from a hubber.

Yay! Bookmarked and rated up!
