Make a Site in 30minutes + Free Hosting

Many of you are put off from building websites because you don't want to commit to paying web hosting fees without a guarantee that your site will generate enough money to pay for the hosting. But worry not... I've found a great solution... free web hosting - with no adverts or banners from the hosting company. Perfect!

Parking doesn't pay enough?

I see a lot of people on domain forums looking for ways to monetize their domain names - parking them is one option but unless you have keyword rich domains you're probably not going to make more than $0.15 per click. Besides getting traffic in the first place to generate those clicks is hard enough considering you can't even promote your domains once its parked (against most parking companies terms and conditions).

The other option is to develop your domain names into websites...

Make a quick simple website instead

When I say develop your domain into a site - don't worry, I don't mean a full blown website... you can build a quick mini-site even a one page website! It doesn't have to look amazing, just some decent content and you'll already be better off than parking.

Parking vs Building a Quick Site

Parking a domain name means you can no longer promote it or advertise it anywhere! (except parking with WhyPark.com) Its against most parking companies terms and conditions to promote a domain name in anyway once it has been parked. So you're relying on type-in traffic alone.

Now, that's fine if you've got a keyword rich domain like "CheapHolidays.com" because its a search term... people search it and could end up on that domain. But what if you've got a domain name like "UltraSpecs.com" - a great brandable domain but no ones going to search for "ultra specs". So then you're buggered if you park something like that. You'll get little to no traffic and probably not a single click.

But if you turn that into a one page website... fill it with loads of content about specs (vision/glasses etc) add some google adsense and/or some affiliate links - submit it to a few search engines and directories... and bam... you've traffic and will more likely get some revenue - plus if you decide to sell the domain you can get more because it will have traffic.

Put off by hosting fees? Don't be... get it FREE!

This is one of the major stumbling blocks for people when it comes to site building. A lot of people are put off by the thought of having to pay like $10 a month for hosting without knowing if the site will generate enough money to even pay for the hosting!

Free Web Hosting with Website Builder

But don't worry... you don't need to pay to get hosting! Theres loads of free hosting providers out there - the best one by far is 000webhost - they provide 250MB storage space and 100,000MB bandwidth - AND theres no branding or annoying adverts like most other free providers.

Another great thing is... it comes with a WEBSITE BUILDER - so its easy to build a quick site.

Build a site in Under 30 minutes

It will take you about 30 Minutes... probably not even half that once you've done one or two first and gotten used the process. Don't be scared... I know it can seem daunting even thinking about building a site - but it really is quite simple.

Free Web Hosting with Website Builder

Here's the process, maybe if you see this you'll have a little less fear...

Step 1. Prepare all your tools, download a demo copy of Dreamweaver or a free wysiwyg editor if you don't have something simiar already. No need to download any website editors, because the free hosting company above gives you all the tools you need to make your site.

Step 2. Find some content for your domain, if the domain name is about "travel" then do a search in google, use some info from WikiPedia, find some free pictures on somewhere like www.sxc.hu

Step 3. Copy all the content you find into one document (maybe into word or dreamweaver etc. - you're going to do this so you have everything in one place. Use this content to write your own content. Don't copy it, write it in your own words where you can and if you do copy something, make sure you include a list of sources at the end of the content. - This step will probably take you the most time, but the more unique the content you produce the more chance of getting better traffic from search engines.

Step 4. Add some google adsense codes into the page, maybe a few affiliate links

Step 5. And thats it really, just save everything in the site builder and visit your url... there you have it... a quick one page website... go and promote it.. do some link exchanges with friends or on forums... submit it to some free web directories and you'll see traffic soon enough.

Simple or what!

Well, I've laid out the basic steps - just so you see how simple it is... if its your first time, then it might take a little more than 30 minutes, but after the first and maybe 2nd site you build... you'll be able to do it in under 30 minutes with no problems at all.

I know this is a really simple outline... I know you want more... so next time I'll write about where to get free content, list free article directories, how to link exchanges and site submissions etc... but for now, just get used to your new FREE hosting account and make a site just to get used to all the "site builder" features at the free host.

Let me know what you think!

    Those who do not have enough time but have domains can use the web builder and create websites quickly. I think it’s better than parking a domain name, isn’t it?

  • sufiankhan

    Thanks for your valuable tips. You always come up with interesting reads. Its a great tip for everyone in the webmastering world especially for new comers and wannabe webmasters.

  • http://www.crazeegeekchick.com Dana

    I’m sure I did not read that you are encouraging people to go copy somebody else’s content for their own site?

    In theory, these steps are helpful, but as a web developer, I’d like to suggest that the author come up with original content that sets them apart from the rest. I loathe researching an item only to find the same content regurgitated on multiple sites. It detracts from those sites’ credibility.

    Also, it’s helpful to link to other industry-related sites; this aids in search engine crawlers linking yours to others.

    Cheers!

    Hi Dana, thanks for your suggestions. And no, I was in no way suggesting that anyone copy others content. I think the wording in my article may have come across that way – so I’ve re-worded that section.

    Like I said, this isn’t a fully comp guide – its just an outline, the steps are there just to give people an idea of whats required so that they don’t get scared of development – besides this is all in relation to “domain parking vs quick sites” and not about fully developing a site.

    Anyway, hope it helps some of you out. Let me know if you have questions, just post them here and I’ll do my best to answer them.

  • lovelylovely

    Hi,

    This was news to me. Never heard of 000webhost. Now that you described it so perfectly, I am definitely going to put one of my domains there and see how it works out. Then, I do have a basket :)

    Thanks and regards,
    ItsSri

  • http://www.demonised.com Demonised

    @ItsSri – you’re welcome, let me know what you think of 000webhost’s free webhosting service. I’ve used them for two sites in the past, both of which I ended up selling.

    The only thing they require is that your site gets traffic within 14 days of you creating the account. Meaning you have 14 days to upload your site from the day you open an account with them.

    To get started on traffic you can just submit your site to a few directories, use google sitemap etc. And feel free to come back here and post a link to your site in the comments.

    Good luck.

    I liked the article very much and it helped me find a good hosting website and of course a free one.thank you for you article.

  • job0606

    getting free hosting is one of thing i like very much. was searching for one these days thanks for you to post one opportunity out here.but 250mb is low…

  • http://www.demonised.com Demonised

    @job0606 – depends what you need it for, 250MB is adequate for most users who’re just starting out. Its free – so 250 isn’t bad. If you need more then go with hostgator – its not a lot to pay for like 10gb with hg.

  • http://street-streetmachine.blogspot.com/ Alex
