That's a pretty good question I get asked a lot. When I tell people that they can get a free website with me or many other places online, They wonder what exactly they can do with such a free website.
There are many places online that will provide you with a free website, but let's get something clear. Not all free websites are the same, and to be honest, there aren't any truly Free websites out there. They all have a catch or simple requirement you must fulfill before you can get the free website. By the way, I tell you right now my offer is the best one out there, just in case you were wondering. But it isn't free either, after all, nothing is really free. Except maybe Free Lunch Friday.
Some free services offer you a free website in exchange for your information. You give them your name, email, address, all that stuff, and they let you have a free website. They might use that information to send you promotional items or promotions that may or may not be interesting to you.
Other systems give you a free website, but you have to pay for upgrades or to have your name in the domain name instead of their name. Of course, a website with your own domain name is highly recommended because it shows more commitment from you towards having a presence online. These examples are also known as hosted solutions because they are "hosted" by someone else. like WordPress.com Blogger, Typepad.
In my case, I build you a free website because if you buy from the recommended hosting service, then they pay me a small commission. The commission allows me to then give you the best WordPress installation you'll find anywhere. Really. But So What?
What can you actually do with a free website like the one that you can get from me?
