Are you wondering how to create your own website free?
Do you want to own your content?
Do you want to have a website that you can call your own?
Weebly will let you build a site on their platform.
Squidoo will let you build a lens on theirs.
You could create a blog at WordPress.com or at blogger.
These are all places where you can get online free of charge.
The content that you create on these sites is not free of conditions.
To give you an example of what can happen, Squidoo is a good case study. Over the last several years the Squidoo platform has been a good place to test concepts, provide information to others and in general make a few dollars with your online efforts. In 2012 and again in 2013 they changed the terms of service, deleting many of the customer created sites (Squidoo called them lenses). Were you able to get them back, No. They were just gone. Finally, in September of 2014, Squidoo was sold to Hubpages. Some high quality lenses were moved to Hubpages but a huge amount of customer information was just deleted. Poof it is no more. This sort of thing can happen when you don’t own the content network.
Each of these free sites have conditions and if their site ranks are hurt by a Google update, all of your content is at risk.
If you doubt this, do a Google search on Posterous. This was, until recently, another site that provided a free place to build a blog. April first 2013 all content on this site was taken down, not a very good April Fools joke. The site was closed down and everything on it is just so many electrons.
There is one place where your content is your own.
Wealthy Affiliate provides their Free members with two sites. A Premium member can have an unlimited number of free sites.
These sites are all yours, every bit of the content that you put on your sites belongs to you. The owners of Wealthy Affiliate have even created a tool that simplifies getting your site up and running in no time at all. If you decide not to stay with WA, you can move your site to other hosting very easily.
These sites are built on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS). This is the most used CMS platform currently in use (almost 60% of the market). WordPress is a wonderfully versatile platform. You can make a blog look like any site you like by choosing various themes. Plugins can enhance your site with increased functions.
