  • Free Hosting For WordPress Blog

    By Danno

    Some don’t know about free hosting for WordPress blogs.  I mean, if you are in the business of designing and developing sites or you’re just savvier than the average Joe then yeah, you’ll know you can host a WordPress blog for free. However, many people don’t know about the joys of WordPress, let alone they can get their own WordPress blog with free hosting.  So here’s the perfect solution you can recommend to low budget clients … you know, the one’s you have to turn away due to budget constraints.

    "Free WordPress blog hosting makes me happeh!"

    Automattic, the makers of the stand-alone WordPress publishing platform (found at WordPress.org) also run a service providing free hosting for WordPress blogs (at WordPress.com).  Although there are some limitations compared to hosting WordPress yourself, they do stack a ton of coolness for what is essentailly a totally free service.  This includes:

    • Instant setup and activation of your blog
    • Free hosting of your WordPress blog
    • Integrated statistics for tracking blog traffic
    • Spam filtering
    • Loads of free themes
    • Multiple blogs and members-only blogs
    • Ability to export all your data should you choose to boogie and go elsewhere with your blog

    This is just the start.  Automattic stacks a whole lot more into the deal … to the point it’s just silly how much you get for free. So if you or your clients don’t have the scratch for the project just yet; you’d be hard pressed to find a better place to start.

      Have you looked at XOOMblogs.com? It's really free. No gimmicks (at least from what I can tell). The service is fast and the support is great. I highly recommend checking them out if you want someone else to deal with your wordpress support, and you just want to blog. Just MHO. (I am not affiliated with them in any way, just thought I'd share my host).
