Want to know how to create a website for free of cost? Then you are at the right place.

In today’s article, you will get to know how to create a free website with step by step guide. I already published an article on various topics like how to start a blog & make money and how to create a mom blog.

Here I will guide you to start your own website for free, I am not going to share the list of free blogging platforms.

I would not say that blogging is easy. Because it is not. If you think that you can earn money with the free website then you are wrong.

But it doesn’t mean you can make money with it.

After all, you are starting your own website to make money online right? I will guide you on how to make money with your free website.

Let’s start with the first step.

Decide Niche

Before you start any blogging website you need to choose a niche.

But if you want to create a simple website then you don’t need to choose any niche. Just jump to the below point.

For bloggers, there are many niches to which you can choose. Always select a niche according to your knowledge. Choosing a niche will cost you $0.00.

Following are the best blogging niches.

  • Personal Finance
  • Investment and stock market
  • Starting online business
  • Health
  • Food
  • Running, Hiking, or Trekking
  • Yoga
  • Spirituality

Get Domain

Many websites allow you to get a free domain. Domain names are the most important factor in blogging or in any website.

The domain name should be short and it should be related to your niche.

Most people prefer.Com domain names and I also suggest using.COM domain extension but it is not free (in case you purchase hosting from BlueHost which offers a free .com domain).

As we are talking about how to create a website free of cost, I suggest you use it.TK domain name. Freenom provides.TK, .ML, .GA, .CF, and .GQ domain names for free.

You can also use the Blogging platform’s domain extension like BlogSpot gives free, WordPress provides, and Wix provides.WIX domain extension.

Choose Blogging Platform

WordPress is a very well-known and famous blogging platform. uses the WordPress platform itself. If you are not ok with WordPress then you can go with Blogspot or Wix.

Here you can find a list of blogging platforms.

Start Free Website With WIX

Wix was founded in the year 2006 and since that, more than 180 used their platform to launch their websites for free and paid.

I do not like the way they allocate your free domain, for example, I got my free domain as here they mention your email ID before It makes your website URL look long. It is also not editable.

But their features are awesome, once you grow your website you can use their paid plan.
