Free Web Hosts OR Your Own Dot Com Name?

Hi. 😀
What according to you should be done? "Free Web Hosting OR Your Own 'dot-com' Name Website??"
What should be done? Why? 😒
hey pranav
you can't have free .com domain
however you can have sub domain..if you want to host your own website
there are many sites which provides this facility
like page.tl,110mb.com
of which page.tl is better they will provide you 1 gb space to host your website

Yes. That is true. I know what you are talking. I am asking, what is more reliable or we can say useful and easy to access?
a sub-domain or our own website?
Because now, free hosting sites also provides various features and tools by which we can make the website more attractive.
Waiting for reply!!😀

Thanks. Thanks for your help! 😀
You are welcome dude.

Let us know your progress and your findings.

For your information if you want a website for your own and if you dont want it to end with .com you can get it for Rs 200/- per year also.
Ok boss. Will let you know about that. 😀
No problem at all.😀

Domain registration & hosting are two entirely different entities. The decision depends on your purpose behind setting up the website.

Yes. Now I got complete idea about the whole thing.
I just read your thread "How to create, run & manage your own website - Part I & Part II"
It is really very helpful for me.
Thanks for posting that thread. 😀 😁
Sure. Will definitely post threads or ask questions.
All the members are really helpful. Now, no worries about the questions.
Just post it to CE-Forum & problem solved. 😀
Thanks. 😁
Personally, I feel owning a domain name is worth the investment. Its around USD $6-$10 per year only! Since you can use it with some free hosts, why not? 😀

Yeah, the best option would be to use it with Google Sites [apps]
Ohk. I have just added that application to my google account.
Now, I will try to develop something. [​IMG]

I wonder whether you can really upload your custom files to Google site account. Is it possible to run a custom PHP script off the Google Site?
I don't think so. The Google Site pages are really limited in their functionality unless you create you own Google gadget. I wouldn't be surprised if it was due to security reasons. I think its better to try free hosts like 110mb.com that support php. They also work fine with Google Apps, since they are controlled separately via DNS settings.
Well not exactly.
The overall template for the site is fixed in google sites. We can't modify that. 😔
Next thing about the content. So, we can add the HTML code for the pages. But is again comes under the non-deleted template.😔
It's not that good, as it not provides full freedom of creating website pages.
So it's better to go for the other free sites which provides more powerful features and tools.😀
Am i correct?? If wrong, correct me.
Yes you are correct 😀 Google Sites is targeted to those who focus more on content rather than designs. Our CE Bot site is hosted on the Google Sites, mainly because we focused on putting the necessary research and collaborating with many users. Thats the plus point of Google Sites.
Oh Yes.
So, it's better to go for other free hosting websites, if and only if, you want to create or develop a small website.
Else go for registered domain. 😀
Great.😁
I know, there are various websites which provides space for creating and developing the website for FREE
But, in the whole tons of websites, which one according to you will be more beneficial?? 😀
Waiting for your reply.

Depends on what you intend to put on your website. If its simple content based website - I'd recommend wordpress/blogger.
Ok sir. Now I have an complete idea. 😀
I completely agree with you.

Now, apart from my current website, I'll try to make something 'different'. Will let you know as the work finishes.
Thanks. 😀

That's good. In simple terms, if you need complete control over your website - choose a paid hosting. You can get very good hosting for around $10/month.

Ok. can you please tell me, which are those paid hosting websites? I am just asking for general knowledge.
That's obvious, there are N numbers of sites, but as you have an experience, you can tell me more specifically. 😀

This is the one I recommend to everyone (CE Referral link): Dedicated Servers | Managed Dedicated Servers | Web Hosting | VPS | Liquid Web

They charge bit more than the industry, but you get more than what you pay for. Most importantly - they'll help you with everything!
Hey, thanks a lot for that.
My last query about this topic is, what is the exact or correct procedure for hosting a particular site?
I'll be very thankful to you, if you can provide that information to me. 😀
