I am currently building a website for my writng with Webnode. They have their own...
editing/writing programmes for articles. But would I be able to use Wordpress as well?
If you enjoy using WordPress you should consider getting your own domain name registered, get hosting, (and pay for domain registration and hosting, but it's not that expensive) and then choose a free WordPress theme from over a 1 000 different ones at wordpress.org - you'll have your own domain name site - it won't have .wordpress.com at the end and you can add Adsense ads to it or whatever you like, basically your very own site.
You'll have to upload the WordPress template to the host server. Make sure the host supports PHP5 and MySql, upload your site, and have fun!
I'm not sure if Webnode allows you to put ads on your pages, or if they will be displaying some of their own ads. Also, not always, but usually a unique domain name is a stronger call for search engines, than thousands of sites that end in the same address eg yourname.blogspot.com yourname.wordpress.com or yourname.webnode.com - yourname.com just seems a stronger address and has no part of it shared with others.
However, using totally free sites (no domain registration or hosting fees) can work for you if you carefully optimize your articles for search engines, and write frequently.
Good luck with whichever methods you choose to "get your writing out there."

I signed up with a host and registered a web domain a couple months ago, but ended up canceling my subscription. I was curious if that web domain is permanently active, or if I would have to create a new site if I decided to switch hosts in the future. I would appreciate any information...

I am trying to send an email to the host of a site that has stolen my hub but not sure if I am looking in the right place. I used WHOIS but it only gives me the server names and the registrar. How do I know which hosting company hosts this website?

I'm not there yet. Still researching. But I'm wanting to know if Wordpress or some other site-building program or platform will make it possible to offer files that visitors can download - either for free or for a fee. And, will it be easy for a total newbie to work out how to do...
