When you start blogging we often do not require to buy space or have our own domain on the internet. This is mainly because some people blog just for fun and are not serious about making it a profession or even make money out of it. Ofcourse there are options like blogspot.com and wordpress.com but there are quite a few free website hosting services. I think these websites would be quite useful for designers and programmers to test their products. 😉
So here is a list of 5 free website hosting services I feel might be worth looking at.
Jimdo is a free service which is ideal for people who are looking to sell things online.
- Jimdo allows with free account storage space upto 500 MB.
- It also supports Photo galleries, widgets and also a store for selling things from your website.
- One good point about this hosting service when compared to other free services is that it allows adding Flash on it.

- 110mb.com allows data exchange of upto 100 GB along with the 110 MB storage space.
- It does not allow WordPress, Drupal or MySQL databases.

Freewebsites is another free hosting service which allows having your unique domains.
- Freewebsites allows unlimited free web space but has restrictions on file size to upto 5 MB.
