Over the last year, many companies offered free website hosting. These sites also allowed the average person to build quality websites at no charge. Sythasites, Blinkweb and Weebly open there doors to a new era in free website hosting. And unlike free hosting from domain registrars; there is no ad banners placed on your site. These websites have become the perfect vehicle for small business looking to build an online presence.
Most the free hosting sites are built on AJAX script, an application that allows you to create a website “drag and drop” without software. Newbie’s and Season Web developers can appreciate this service. No more upload headaches and HTML codes to remember.
Let’s review the most popular free website hosting sites
Sythasite is excellent for building websites, although I wouldn’t build a blog with the templates provided. Synthasite does have more widgets than all three sites, so the web 2.0 features are endless. You can add Google AdSense, Chat Rooms and many other options with the click of a mouse.
Pros: MP3 players, comment boxes and other widgets make this site great for Web 2.0
Cons: Templates could be better
Weebly is the pioneer of Ajax scripted free website hosting. The templates are average and the website builder application is easy to use. Most of Weebly’s website templates are good for business related websites. I strongly recommend Weebly for beginners
Pros: High Page Ranking. Google likes Weebly.
Cons: The website building application crashes
Blinkweb was built for need of internet marketers. Sales letter templates, ClickBank Payment Buttons make Blinkweb a must have for bloggers and marketers.
Pros: Sales Letter Templates that allow you to market your online products
Cons: The Google AdSense features doesn’t allow you to track your AdSense campaign
