Setup free web hosting and free web domain

We create great designs and great works but how do we display it online? Well, we could use online and easy to use blogging tools like blogger and wordpress, but sometimes we just don't like the domain name to contain .blogspot.com, or .wordpress.com. So here's the trick, you could purchase a domain name or just use free stuff like http://www.co.cc.

I like free stuff, so I'll be showing you how to get that free domain name and web hosting:
  1. First you will have to find a free internet domain registrar. This can be easily done by just googling “free domains” however sometimes some of these services have a lot of restrictions and they also have complicated domain names for e.g. yourwebsitename.freewebhosting.com thus I will recommend that you get registered on http://www.co.cc It’s the closest free domain registrar to the original “.com” titles.
  2. After you have completed the sign up process successfully you will be given the relevant information on the domain you just registered thus its recommended that you save these details somewhere safe because you will need them for other uses in upcoming instructions.
  3. There are a lot of free web hosting solutions on the web however I have preferences for http://www.byethost.com because it provides FTP account and File Manager, Control Panel and Automatic Script Installer, MySQL databases & PHP Support, add-on domain, parked domains, sub-domains and best of all, no ads. So all you have to do is visit the website, check out all the features that they offer and if you seem satisfied you then sign up.
  4. After signing up, you have basically completed the process, all you have to do is add the name servers for byethost in the admin panel provided by co.cc and in about 48 hours your free domain and web hosting will be fully functional.

It's pretty much easy to setup and you'll have your own website in no time!
