Publishing the own website on the internet or making it live is the dream of every fresher. If you want to publish your website for free then you are in the right place.  

Most of us learn new things like coding, development  & new technologies. Creating a website is only the first step in getting online, you will also need to host a website or in simple terms upload the website to the internet.  

How you will do that?  

You will need to purchase domain & hosting. The domain is the name by which you will be able to see your website over the internet. For example, codingbirdsonline.com is the domain name.  

And the second thing required is hosting. Hosting is the place where you will upload your website or your website’s files.

  Purchasing domain & hosting requires money at least 1500 to 2000 INR, not considering from reputed hosting company providers like Godaddy, Siteground, Bigrock, etc. Otherwise, they will charge greater than this amount.  

Don’t worry you don’t need to purchase anything to publish your website.   Where can I host my website for free ??  

The answer is 000webhost  

You may be saying what’s this? The is itself a website provides free hosting, you will not be charged even 0 $. How’s it is possible?   Since it provides free hosting, so you will not get a domain like .com, .in,.org, etc.   You will get a subdomain like username.000webhostapp.com ‘username’ can be changed if it does not exist already.   Ready….?  Ok, follow the steps. You need to create the account. Don’t worry it is free.
