The cost of hosting your blog can often be a sour point for many first-time bloggers. Depending on who you’re with, your hosting fees can eat up a big chunk of change, and there is always the chance that the host you’ve picked is going to let you down.
Free hosting sounds like a great idea to me. I’m always on the lookout for good, cheap web hosting services, and I’ve found one that won’t cost you a penny. So what’s the catch? Really, there isn’t one. You get 100MB of space and 1,000MB of bandwidth and free hosting for life. You also get a cPanel, which makes managing your website so easy a child could do it.
The company offering the hosting is Tech Entrance. By signing up for the free service, you receive a lower priority than somebody who pays, but what the heck – you’re getting free hosting for life.
Tech Entrance will not give you a domain, meaning that you need to go somewhere like Register.com and get your domain for $20 (sign up, make an inquiry, get to the payment page where they offer the domain for $35, close the page, and wait for an email offering you the domain for $20). Once you’ve done that you can use the DNS nameserver info Tech Entrance sends you to get your domain up and running with them.
I’m going to try Tech Entrance and have registered a domain to work on as a side project. Tech Entrance guarantees 99.9% uptime, and if they can keep to their word then they will stand head and shoulders above many other cheap hosting services.
Sign up for Tech Entrance here. This is not an affiliate link, so I don’t get anything for recommending you. If you want to make money online, then a good place to start would be to save money on your hosting costs, and this removes them altogether.
