Making A Free Website

Updated on November 19, 2009

Nowadays, it is very simple to create a website using a free service. Many companies offer this service, which makes it easy for anyone to make a website of their own. Simply choose a service like Google or Bravenet and create an account. Once your account has been established, you will be able to make a sub domain (basically a site within a site) from that company's main site. A website can be about whatever you want it to be. You can create a personal page to tell others about yourself, make a family site to keep your relatives up to date on the latest events, or dedicate it to something you enjoy. I have a website through Bravenet that I use to write about classic video games (It can be found at phoenixcreations2003.bravehost.com. It may give a better idea about what can be done with a free website). You could write about whatever topic you desire. If you enjoy sports, you could make a website dedicated to your favorite sports teams, or offer information on the sport itself.

For those who aren't trained in html code (myself included), many of the companies offer web tools that can help construct a site without learning code. The web tools aren't very difficult to use, and offer a variety of options for designing your site. For those who wish to establish "dot com" websites, many of these same companies offer upgraded sites for a monthly or annual fee. These sites have much more space, and offer a personalized url. Happy site building!

      This website builder works best for me if you are looking for free, just choose the subdomain option when you publish and can create a free blog for your site ad free games and more.

      BFFs: Yes it is free only if you are using the basic website. Upgrading to a dot com website can range anywhere from $50 to $100 a year.

      Sydney: it's $8.99 per month for Geocities Pro. The basic Geocities sitebuilder is free, but you don't get dot com status with it.

      Devina: you can edit a Geocities site using Yahoo's pagebuilder or by typing html code.

      I didn't realise that Yahoo offerd a free webhosting service at Geocities and also that they supply the editing tools as well.

      I may be wrong, but do they put ads on the websites once there made - like Lycos Tripod do?

      I myself offer website design and creating videos on my new website. They really are excellent. You may wish to visit the site.

      If you're looking for free webhosting and you want to set up your own URL (which costs $90.00 for 5 years) DotEasy.Com does in fact host websites for free.

      They have some great features. I have 9 registered websites with them and all I ever pay for is my URL fees (every 5 years).

      They have extraordinary customer service as well, even on the free service.
