3 Ways to Create a Free Website
Websites are everywhere. In fact, you’re probably reading this on a web page. Do you have a website? Do you know someone who wants a website but doesn’t know how to get one going?
Actually, websites are free and nowadays it is really easy to create your own website. Don’t believe me? Check out these...
Three free website-making tools.
1.) Google Sites:
This is a free service provided by Google to any one who has a Google account. Simply sign into the Sites here (Google's term for this tool) and you can create free websites. The options have improved drastically over the years. This is actually a very easy way to make a modern stylish website.
This is a very easy way to make a website. Weebly’s wants to make it as easy as possible to make a free website. Simply login into Weebly (or create an account if you don't have one already) and choose from templates. Weebly offers everything you would need to get started on a basic website with all the modern features.

Another free and easy way to make a website. Sign into Webs.com here and get started with basic templates.
There are of course other ways to make a free website. Beware, however, that your viewer will know your site is free because your URL will include the name of your service provider. For example, if you use Weebly then your URL will look like this:
However, even though there are many ways of creating a free website, after all I'm not the only one who thinks free is actually not free. All of these service providers offer upgrade options so you can have your own full domain. However, there are better ways of upgrading and I don’t recommend using the options provided by Weebly and others. Why? Stay tuned and find out why paying for the upgrade options is not a good idea.
Want the reason now? Well, basically it's just too expensive. You can host your own website for far less. Let's take a look at the numbers.
|$300 / year||$300 / year||$276 / year|
These prices reflect the highest paid options available. However, the features included are automatically included for hosting with a local web hosting and development company (like Vital Tech Results, LLC).
