If you want a website and if you are really serious about building your own website, why don't you invest in a proper domain and hosting, why to opt for free domain and hosting? There are already a lot of budget hosting services.

Of course it's a worthwhile venture to try out some of these website builder that provides free hosting services for your website that you build on their platform. I have been using wordpress hosting service and I can testify that their hosting service is top-notch and quite reliable because I have never had any issues with them since I've been using the service.

I will not bother to go and try the free domain because I will always like most of my things to be official , I will just go and buy a good demain that will be suitable to whatever area I am concentrating on and register and have access to my private keys, free things sometimes I'm not always the best.

There is actually no harm in trying free domains though you should expect that the experience would be limited as certain functions or features might not be available. But its a great place to gain experience and learn mostly for beginners

If you want a free domain, it is going to be a wise thing that you get such type of domains for your learning purpose instead of for your proffesional business engagements.

Some web hosting companies offer free domain if you buy hosting, where as some companies offer free hosting for a limited time. There are also web hosting that are completey free.

For a new business who is just launching into the world of website,it would not be a bad idea to have a free web hosting and domain.Though it depends on your future plan as this will be like a step upward and a launch pad to you owning your own domain and to have a proper knowledge how to manage a website properly.

It depends on what you want to do and if you are trying it for curiosity purposes i don't see anything wrong with it and also you are doing it for a research purpose there is also nothing wrong with it, you cannot get a free domain to start up a serious online business.

In other to have the full control of a website, then paid domain and hosting should be the answer. Though free domains and hosting may exist and fantastic to use but I don't really support it.

There is no harm in trying out free domains and hosting by platforms. You can take such opportunities in knowing all you can about creating and managing your own website till you are ready to go pro for the sake of your business

You should go for a paid domain because there are many problems associated with the subdomains or free doamins. Subdomains have a much harder time getting real, organic traffic. I believe that the only real way to get traffic using a subdoamin is to use social media but the problem is that subdomain sites look unprofessional to many people.

I always recommend people to use a paid domain and hosting and never go for free offers. However, if you wnat to test something, you can try free domain and hosting.

Well I have never really even thought get a free domain because I know that anything that is free will not be up to standard so I would prefer to pay some amount of money for it so that I can get something of high quality.

Domain is very easy to buy these days and we just 15 dollars you can get the best quality domains for your business and with that I don't see the need for you to try out something free that you may not understand the consequences.

I think for someone like me who wants to own a website for fun and do not want to invest in domain and hosting, I think free domain and hosting can be a good option

I once registered dot tk domain. I also registered for free hosting with 000webhost. I wanted to see if free domain hosted on free hosting will rank or not. But I never went too far.
