Do you need a web space so that you can host your own blog or website?. Don’t want to pay monthly or yearly fees for the hosting services?. And you don’t want to use the free blog hosting site, as an agreement for using their free domain name and hosting, you have no choice but to use your own personal URL name along with their domain name like “yoursitename.bloghostname.com”. That is really long for a website name. 😡
You wanted self-hosted blog or website. I have something that can help you in that department. I suggest you to sign up with up my own free hosting service. Sadly, I offer a free hosting space and domain name registrations is not included.
Not to worry though, it’s really cheap to buy and register your domain name. You can see it for yourself by looking at the price table below.
Domain Pricing Details
|.com||USD 8.99||.net||USD 9.99||.org||USD 9.99|
|.info||USD 3.99||.biz||USD 9.99||.us||USD 9.99|
|.name||USD 9.99||.in||USD 14.99||.co.in||USD 8.99|
New domain registration is per year basis and not monthly. My free hosting option is a good deal considering you don’t need to pay for the hosting at all. If you still don’t want to pay for domain registration then you can apply for a free one. Here’s a link for you.
*note: at certain point some domain names are required for annual fees then again some are available completely for free when registering with Dot.TK.
Need to know more about my free hosting. I’ll layout a little preview for you.
