For an Internet newbie, the thought of having to build your own website may seem a bit overwhelming. Where do you start? Well, let me tell you – it really is no hocus-pocus. Anyone with access to a computer and Internet can do it. And so how do I create my own website for FREE? Very easy – here are some simple steps to follow.
Get a Domain Name
First of all, you do need to get a domain name. The domain name is your website address – like on this site – the domain name is www.worktobefree.com. I have written a separate article with a few tips on choosing your domain name, but simply put, you want to get one that relates to what you want to write about or sell. You can buy cheap domain names on Namecheap, or you get minimum of 2 websites at absolutely NO COST at Wealthy Affiliate.
Any website is hosted from somewhere. That’s just how it works – it’s not enough to get a domain name and then build it without a host. There are a few good places that do web hosting, but I’m not going to go list heaps of web hosting places here. You are reading this article because you want to know how to create your own website for free, and that’s what I’ll tell you.
You can get FREE web hosting on Wealthy Affiliate. You can read more about other benefits of this affiliate marketing community in my review, but yeah – they will give you FREE and 100% stable web hosting.
