Already got a domain name? I know, I just bought one recently, and it only cost me $4.99 per year! That is cheap. Wouldn’t it be great if you can take that domain and use it on a free website hosting service? If you are interested in learning how to do this, then read on.
Now-a-days, you can buy a domain name anywhere. And like with anything, you always want to get the best deal on it and not necessarily host it where you bought it because of hosting cost.
If you are like me, you try to save where you can. In this case, you can save on website hosting if you do it through 000webhost.com. The good thing about using a hosting service like this is they provide the primary and secondary name servers you need to have the Internet know of your web site. In this case, theirs are as follows:
You’ll have to note the above as you will need to enter them at the site where you bought your domain name. For example, at GoDaddy.com, you’ll have to log into your account, then go to the Domain Manager page; there you can set the name servers to the name servers listed above.
At 000webhost.com, you just need to sign up for a free hosting service, and specify the domain name you own, and you are pretty much good to go.
By doing this, the cost of your website which uses your domain name is pretty much the cost of keeping the domain name. If it costs $4.99 a year, then it only costs you no more than 42 cents a month for the domain and the hosting service combined!
