I understand that a lot of folks are looking for domain names that are free so that you can start a business. It can be anything from affiliate marketing to starting your own ad sense blog.Therefore, to help you out I have listed all the websites that give you a domain name or a sub-domain name for free.
I have listed the websites according in 3 categories.These categories are:
1):Websites that give a domain name for free and look professional.(For example:www.yourwebsitename.co.nr)
2):Websites that give you a very clear Sub domain name.(For example:"yourwebsitename.blogspot.com").These domains may not look very professorial but they receive quite a bit of traffic.These kind of websites are recommended since they are safe to use and are under constant maintenance.
3):Websites that let you join and write articles for them.I highly recommend these websites as they are ranked very high by the search engines and get you some serious cash.(For Example:Notice the URL of the article you are viewing right now.It
So let's go ahead with the list, shall we?
1. Websites That Offer Free Professional Domain Name!
There are a few websites that offer free Sub-domain names that look like a professional Domain name.There are many of these websites,but for your sake I have chosen a few websites that are OK to use and are completely free.They offer free Hosting accounts as well and are quite reliable.(Except for a few server shutdowns)
Only if you publish quality articles,these websites might receive some traffic.If you are getting these for Affiliate programs,then you my be out of Luck!Anyway here's the list:
Freedomain.co.nr is a website that provides free hosting,a free domain that looks like:" http://www.yourwebsitename.co.nr" and provide you unlimited space without any ads.It is pretty decent.
It is a free website that offers domain names that look like"www.yourwebsitename.com.co.in".They don't display any ads in your webpage,Activation is Instant and also show traffic statistics. Quite Flexible and decent.
This website provides free domain names with 10 GB hosting space.The domain name you choose will look like "www.yourwebsitename.com.nu".This is as close as you get to a .com domain name.It offers a very good service and is actually really good.This is one website that I really like.
This is one of the best free domain service provider as it gives a large amount of free web hosting.This is currently being used by hundreds of websites and surprisingly,these websites are prospering!The domain name provided looks like this:"www.yourwebsitename.tk"
2. Websites That Offer Sub-domains:
These are websites that offer sub-domain names which clearly specify the name of the website providing the domain name service.These websites are usually high security websites that are very easy to use and get decent traffic.
Most of the blogger use this service to write their blogs and publish them.You can create several of these sub domains for yourself.They provide unlimited space for you to write articles and publish great stuff!
There is no limit to their usage.But there is a catch.It may take some time for search engines to crawl your content.Except for this,there is no other visible flaw. Here are the Top 5 websites which offer a sub domain :
- Blogger is one of the best Sub domain name services run by none other than Google itself!
- It has a very good interface,provides you the best tools in the market for free and also sends quite a of the targeted traffic to you.
- It has many different templates and it enables you to create several sub domains for free.It also provides webmasters tools and lets you use AdSense on your blog for earning money via revenues.
- It does not object to spun or copied content.(Well,it does!But don't copy whole paragraphs from websites without specifying where you got that info from.Don't forget to credit the website for the info)
- WordPress is One of the best blogging services and used by 65% of the bloggers because of the tools provided by them.
- It is one of the most user friendly(if not,the most friendly)blogging service that gets a lot of traffic and has the best templates on the internet.It also has many plugins that enable you to do much more than what you already do!(example:Adding Adsense.)
- Google lovers WordPress blogs and hence crawls and indexes it faster.Providing a lot of targeted traffic.It also allows you to use Adsense on its blogs resulting in smart passive income.
- But sadly,the best features of WordPress ,that is,no ads feature 10 GB space are not free.You have to pay $99 for this upgrade.But it still allows you to create unlimited blogs for free!
- (P.S WordPress has been rated as the best blog building tool!)
- In my personal opinion,Webs is one of the websites that offer a free sub-domain name which looks just as professional as a real domain name.It Provides numerous custom templates and receives bulk load of traffic.
- Perfect for affiliate marketers who want to display a few affiliate products in a nice and neat way.
- Allows you to create many pages and lets you make a "Home,Contact Us,About" sort of webpage which looks and feels very professional.
- This,Ladies and Gentlemen is one of the best ways to get your articles noticed.Remember what I said about Google not crawling and indexing your articles very fast?Well that does not apply to this website!
- This website allows you to join and lets you pick only the categories that are available.(For example:If the category:"webdesign" is available,you will be able to join it and you will be given a free ,very high traffic domain name.
- The domain name will look like."webdesign.about.com"and in the next line your name will be written,indicating you are the author of the webpage.)Definitely, one of the best sub domain services ever seen!
5. Websites That Allow You To Publish Articles And Write Reviews!(Highly Recommended!)
This is a big one People!These are websites that let you sign up and write articles for them.This not all !They have so many MIND-BLOWING features that I possibly cannot explain everything they have in one go!But just as a wake up call to you,I will tell about as many features about these websites as i can.They have:
- Adsense Revenue Sharing(with no Adsense account!)
- Various Affiliate tools for Amazon and Ebay. When somebody purchase a product via these tools they get 8.25% as commission.They then divide the commission(50-50)between the referrer and themselves.(You don't need to be affiliated with Amazon or Ebay to do this!)
- An amazing relationship with search engines.This enables search engines to send the MAXIMUM TRAFFIC to your URL!
- Very easy to make Blogs and Reviews!Can be made in minutes!
- Internal Traffic System!This means that they also promote your article in their own search engines,resulting in many people viewing your article within the website itself!
- Rewards and Loyalties System.Motivates people to keep going forward and make more great posts.
- Best source of smart passive income from home!
- Very fast indexing by search engines since they hold a very good Alexa rank!
- Various quests and Promotion programs!
1):Squidoo (NOW HUBPAGES)
Squidoo no longer exists as it has been merged with Hubpages. All squidoo articles have now been transferred to hubpages.
- Squidoo is a web 2.0 application which allows its members to post articles or Lenses.The people who create Lenses are called Lens masters (Me!) .
- The Lens master can write anything they want to write about or anything that they are interested in. Squidoo contains about 40 topics Ranging from spirituality to business.All the users can easily create Lenses with the help of various building blocks or modules in a Lens.It is so easy that even your 11 year old kid can make an article within minutes!An example of these modules are the poll module.The lens love module,The table of contents module etc.
- One of the coolest features of Squidoo is that the Lenses published here often achieve built in popularity.This is because of their association with hundreds and thousands of squidoo Lenses.Thus this means Traffic from inside as well as the outside. Squidoo also has one of the best relationships with google so your Lens will be indexed within days of submission and you will start getting bulk loads of click outs to your website.
- The website offers adsense revenue sharing program on terms of the Lens' Lensrank.(Which is divided into three tiers!You will know once you Join it!).50% of the website's whole adsense revenue goes to the Lens masters and the other 50% goes to the charity!They also have tools such as Amazon modules,ebay modules,etsy modules etc.The best part about these is that you don't need to be affiliated with them. Squidoo keeps the 50% of the commission earned and gives the rest to you,the referrer!
- The URL provided by squidoo looks like this "www.squidoo.com/yourdomainname".
- <b>Squidoo allows the placement of affiliate links in your Lens.It also allows HTML in its articles.</b>
- The website also features a experience points system .Points are given to the Lensmasters for every action done on squidoo. You can also unlock goodies and themes as you progress higher.There are many clubs and magazines within squidoo which show your work.
There is much more to explain and I can't possibly do that.So i will leave it to you to go ahead and dive into the wonderful world of squidoo!
2. HubPages (Second To Squidoo!)
- In the era of free sub-domain names,HubPages still reigns supreme!Until now,I have never stumbled upon such a program where your efforts are greatly appreciated!
- Out of curiosity,I tried it out and found the results were no less that extraordinary.My article went live in the first 48 hours and I was receiving a bulk load of traffic by the end of the week.
- They have a very good relationship with Google and so Google crawls their website every hour!This produces amazing results and your article may be indexed at the very first page of Google search.
- The domain name they provide you is a little weird.It looks like
- "yourname.hubpages.com".Therefore be very careful on what name you are going to choose.
- They have tools which make building and updating Articles a piece of cake.Also you can put your own adsense posts in your article earning quite the passive income..
- Best part...You get to use your own amazon affiliate links and your own adsense account!
