Hi there, and Welcome to Global Technology Updates. In today’s post, we will learn that how we can create a totally free website that includes a free domain and free web hosting. As you all know that having a website of our own is an awesome thing but when we try to create one we come to know that creating a website is quite costly and we back ourselves. But to counter your this problem I am here to teach you all that how you can create a completely free website in easy steps.
First of all Tutorial is lengthy, but that does not mean it is hard. Don’t give up without trying. It has been made lengthy so that, you can understand it well.
To create a Website whether it is free or paid, we need two important things,
1] Domain Name and – Name Of Our Website
2] Web Hosting Service – Storage to store our website’s data.
To Get your website totally ready we have to follow the below steps. It is not a very hard process just keep reading and you will understand everything.
i] Firstly we have to buy a Free Domain.
ii] Then we need to register for a free web hosting
iii] Then we need to link our Free Domain to our Free Hosting
iv] And Finally we will upload our HTML files on our Free Hosting.
i] Buy Domain: A domain is a website’s web address or we can say that the address of the place where your website is located on the Internet. I have created a separate Tutorial for this step, so head over to that page in a new tab and get your Free Domain.
So now I will assume that you have a FREE DOMAIN that you can use for your Free Website.
Now Follow below Steps to get your Free Website Ready
Get Your Free Hosting
ii] Sign Up for Free Hosting: There are plenty of online services and companies that provide Free Web Hosting, but among all of them we are going to use 000webhost.com. This is one of the best Free Hosting among all of the others because this is powered by Hostinger.com. The sign-up process is very simple just follow the steps below.
a] Go to the following website: 000webhost.com
b] Then click on ‘Sign Up for Free’ button.
c] A sign-up form will appear. Fill the form correctly then click on ‘Get Free Hosting’ button.
d] Now you need to head over to your email inbox. Open the mail received from 000webhost. And click on the ‘Verify email’ red button.
e] After clicking on the button you will be forwarded to 000webhost.com and your account will be verified in a moment.
That’s it. We have successfully achieved our Free Webhosting.
Connect Your Free Domain To Your Free Hosting
iii] Link Domain to Hosting: Now that you have your Free Domain and your Free Hosting, it’s time to link them both. To do so, keep on reading the Tutorial.
a] Open your 000webhost.com account and click on ‘Set web address’ option.
b] Then a pop-up will open. We need to click on the option provided at the bottom of the pop-up. See the image for better understanding.
c] Now in the new window, you will have to click on the ‘Use Domain’ button provided in ‘Own Domain’ division.
d] A new pop-up window will get open. Enter the Domain name you just purchased and click on ‘Park Domain’ button.
e] Sign in using the account you used to Purchase the Domain and on the home screen of your account click on ‘Manage Domain’ button.
f] After that click on ‘Nameservers’ option under ‘Management Tool’ option.
g] After that we need to insert the nameservers of 000webhost.com so, click on ‘Use custom nameserver’ option. After that enter, the two nameservers provided below one-by-one.
If there are any other nameservers in the remaining fields, erase them. We just need to insert these two nameservers only.
And then click on ‘Change Nameservers’ button.
That’s it. This part is also completed. Now you just need to follow 1 more stage to complete your free website. I hope it is easy to understand. If you can not get my words then use the images for better understanding.
Upload Webpages On Your Free Hosting
iv] Upload your HTML files: Now we need to upload our HTML files to our hosting. Without the HTML files, you can not create a website. To upload an HTML file to hosting follow steps.
a] First of all sign in your 000webhost.com. Once there click on ‘Upload Now’ button in the Upload Own Website section.
b] Then you will be forwarded to ‘File Manager’ of your web hosting. On this page click on the ‘Upload’ button shown in the image.
c] A pop-up will appear. In that pop-up click on ‘Select Files’
d] Now select the HTML files from your computer and click on ‘Open’ button.
e] After completing above step you will be back in your browser and see the files you selected ready to be upload. In this step click on ‘Upload’ button.
Now you will see that files have been uploaded
f] Now this is the Final step we need to rename our main HTML file to ‘index.html’. You can see that the name of my HTML file is ‘contact.html’ so I will rename it to ‘index.html’.
That’s it. This step is also completed and Now your Website is Completely ready. Now you can access this website from anywhere. You can customize it if you like but then you need to have some knowledge of HTML and CSS. That’s all for this Tutorial, use it to gain some knowledge and in the next Post, will tell you best Free Hosting Providers.
