Are you interested in starting a blog?

This is a perfect place For You, in this tutorial you are going to learn how to start a blog for free of cost without spending a single paise.

If you are not interested in coding, then starting a blog with WordPress is the right platform without any coding knowledge.

WordPress is the free platform which is most widely used all over the world, and it is very easy to handle by anybody which is the most important reason for the WordPress to be in the top among its competitors.

So without wasting time, let’s get started.

How to get free hosting?

Hosting is the important thing in starting a blog, hosting is a storage place to run or have all your website data there are many best paid hosting providers, but in this tutorial, as we mentioned we are going to discuss only the free hosting providers.

There are few best free hosting providers available on the internet who gives free unlimited hosting for your lifetime and that too without forcing their ads in your website.

The best free hosting providers are:

  1. Viewn.com
  2. Infinityfree.net

viewen.com:

Viewen.com is my first and best choice, they give free hosting for life with free C-Panel, you need to signup your account and you have to request for your free hosting by creating a support ticket, and further you need to like their facebook page, and your account will be activated within few hours

We are hosting two websites in viewen.com with zero problems.

Infinityfree.net:

Unlike viewen.com this is an instant process, they also give you the unlimited disc space with free control panel, this is also ad-free service.

This is a good choice for the small websites and testing websites, it is not the best choice for the bigger websites, they also give you unlimited add-on domain so that you can host unlimited websites but in viewen, you need to request for any new accounts, but there also you can host unlimited websites.

How to get free domain name?

To get a .com domain name for 129 Rs from Godaddy Please read our article How to get a .com domain for 129 Rs?

Domain name is another important thing when it comes to creating a website, there are many free subdomain providers, but if you don’t like subdomain there are free domain providers also freenom.com but they provide domains which are not top level (non TLD Domains Ex. questionocean.tk, questionocean.ml etc.. ) but I don’t recommend these domains for your official use, just use this for your testing purposes.

To get the free domain name go to freenom.com and create an account with them

After creating an account go to services > register a new domain and search any domain name you want and register it.
