Build a Free Website

The basic prerequisite of having an online business to make money online is to have a virtual shop or your own website.

When you are a student looking to explore options online or a person who got laid off there are literally no funds available to play around with.

So how do you shell out money to build a website? And if you don't have an online presence how will you sell your stuff?

A difficult situation which many newbies find themselves in. And this hub provides the simple answer. Build your website for free as a subdomain of any of these sites.

As a subdomain you don't get your site as "www.mysite.com" but rather as "www.mysite.hostdomain.com"

Once you get going and make a few sales you can buy your own domain name and web hosting.

Then it will be "www.mysite.com". Most of the sites offer this upgrade to you and it is usually well integrated into the system and causes least hassles.

In case it does not take off you have not wasted any money from your pocket at all. Happy situation to be in. So here is the list of sites where you can build a free website.

Build Websites Here

All the sites below offer a basic plan which is free for those of you looking to build a website. There are more options with a paid hosting with these sites, but the basic free profile allows you build a useful site in minutes.

And you know what the best part is?

You don't need to be a coder to build your free website!

All the websites below offer a simple lift and drag web designing system where all you have to do is add the element that you want to use onto a blank web page and the code is already pre- written for it.

There are also a number of templates that are available for you to try out. If you don't like one you can choose from hundreds others.

      Google ads are the best way to go. You can also look at clickbank and see what digital products they have to offer and do some affiliate sales on the side.
