Free WordPress Website Hosting
Is there such a thing as Free WordPress website hosting?
Well, that is the question I am going to answer in this article and if there is such a thing as free WordPress website hosting is it any good and where can you find it?
First I will cover why you would want WordPress hosting over the many site builders out there!
If you are looking to build a website, either build and online presence or start an online business you have probably came across many free website builders out there.
Most of their website are drag and drop website making it easy to build and create a website from scratch even for beginners, good for people just wanting to get a quick website site up and running.
The downside of these website builders is they lack options, for example, you have to stick the format and design of the theme you choose not only that they may not have the option you want at lease in the free version.
Most of these site builders will not let you add videos to the site or you are limited to 2 – 5 videos unless you upgrade same goes with selling products, as soon as you want to sell products or set up an eCommerce site (shop site) you will have to pay for a premium membership.
Comparing this to a WordPress website,
yes, they might be a bit harder to build you website for beginners because it is not a drag and drop format however you do get plugins that can make your website a drag and drop site making easy for a beginner to build.
Plugins are what make WordPress website better than website builders because they give you the options to make your website do whatever you want it to and most of the plugins are free.
You get eCommerce plugging, drag and drop website builder plugins, social sharing plugins, video sharing plugins, the list is endless. not to mention SEO (search Engine Optimisation) helping you rank on google so people can find you site.
Now you can see the benefits of WordPress website over free website builder can you get Free WordPress website hosting?
Over the years I have manages to find only 3 places that have offered free WordPress hosting, 1 that really works the other 2 were a let downs.
The first one I found was from a site called 1 free hosting, I gave it a try and built up a WordPress website from their control panel it worked fine everything was just like hosting from other companies like Hostgator maybe a little slower but fine for free hosting, my website was up and running and making money.
That was until about a year later then BAM my website just vanished gone no were to be seen. I tried contacting support but nothing I just lost my website and 1 year’s worth of work as well as the money it was making.
Lucky I only had 1 website on the free host and the rest of my sites else were, It’s the old “never put all of your eggs in 1 basket” scenario.
The second was from a guy offering free hosting as well as money making opportunity, I can’t remember the name of the guy or program just now I may do a post on it later if I can remember what it’s called.
but anyway long story short he wants you to sign up for 3 to 5 affiliate programs – 3 free, 2 paid and he makes you a website promoting them with your affiliate links or his links if you don’t sing up for all 5, from there he hosts you website and you can change it in any way you want.
Then he eventually emails you saying that the hosting is going down and you have to start paying or lose your site. Hmmm sound fishy
I didn’t really put much into this site as I was skeptical from the start and I didn’t really like the affiliate programs MML pyramid type stuff.
This was the second failed attempt for FREE WordPress website hosting.
Success only came when I came across Wealthy Affiliate, they offer free WordPress hosting for life as long as you stay a member and when you have website making money you will stay a member especially since membership is free
not only do they offer free WordPress web hosting they also offer full video training about money making niche website and how to use WordPress.
Ideal for beginner and Intermediate users,
As a free member you get
- Hosting for 2 websites
- Live chat
- 24-hour support
- website backup

Like Everything online they also have a premium membership or paid membership you can join if you want to.. you are under no obligation to upgrade
but unlike most programs out there they do not bombard you with upsells and down sells.
I am of course a premium member as I have more than 2 money making websites and I believe in the service and value of the hosting and training.
