It has been my dream, right from childhood, to establish a great
site, without spending any money. So I searched the web, for
free domain names, free web hosting and free websites. I would
like to share the results of my search with you.
I have searched all over the web for free hosting. I have set up
free sites in all of them. From this experience, I can
confidently say that the two best free web hosting solutions are
Tripod and Freewebsites
In Tripod, you get a free website, http:\yourname.tripod.com and
and also an e-mail id email@example.com. You get free web
Gems(addons) and a online WYSWYG editor and an online html
Whereas, in FreeWebsites, you can get a free website with a
number of domains like yourname.koolhost.com or yourname.b0x.com
or simply yourname.freewebsites.com.These are only some of the
great domains available at freewebsites. You also get a free
e-mail address like firstname.lastname@example.org. Any email
sent to this email address is automatically forwarded to your
main e-mail address.
Also, there is an option of Bannerless Advertising in
Freewebsites.There is an option of Pop-up Advertising in Tripod.
So both these web-hosting solutions are great, besides being
free. So pick your favourite free web hoster and set up a site
Now , we move onto free domain names. There is only one web
service I know, that actually gives you free doamin names. That
is the site www.tk.com.It offers free domain names like
www.yourname.tk for free. Here`s how to obtain a free domain
First set up a free website with Tripod or Freewebsites. I
explained how to do this earlier.
Go to www.tk.com and set up a free account with them. They will
ask for the url of your existing website. Give the url of the
website you set up with Tripod or Freewebsites.
Now they will ask you for the name to give to your tk domain
name. Give them a short name which is easy to remember. There,
you have got your free website.
CAUTION:Your .tk domain name will expire after a period of time.
Then, all you have to do is reregister your domain name in .tk
again. That`s All.
Many happy free websites to you.
