Several times I’ve written here about the difference between free WordPress.COM and self-hosted WordPress.ORG. My blog here belongs to the latter category.
Back in November last year, I was told by another blogger, that there’s this website that allows you to ‘self-host’ your wordpress blog for free. I didn’t believe much in it, but of course had to check it out. Fair enough, after a quick sign-up procedure, I could install WordPress and do the usual things, like choosing a theme and all that. You got a rather silly URL [address] for your blog, but when it’s free, you can’t be picky, huh?!
After that, I pretty much forgot about it. I’m of the conviction that if it sounds too good to be true, it usually isn’t. However, the other day, I remembered it and went to check on things. What do you know — still up and running!
Soooo … if anyone is interested to try and see what it’s like to have a self-hosted blog, I think this would be a golden opportunity. The website is HOSTINGER, and my little test blog I set up there is noblack.hol.es
