Where you are free to make your own choice for those of us that are looking to save, and really don't mind putting in a little more effort. I think they will appreciate this article. Just to to Freenom (www.freenom.com) see what your name to your domain is going to cost you. You want to make something short and small. I wish I would have thought of that, but to my surprise there are others that share the name of Nerd Alert, but I'm afraid it a bit more to our scope. We believe in freedom. That is what we encourage in art, and creating. That is what we think this post should be more about is empowering people with a good choice. This is your first step. Once you acquire your domain you will need the next step. Hosting.
The best place to start to get to know yourself is here when it comes to making your site this is the bridge really between you and the domain. To the layman it would be the domain is where the site is keep for the world to see. The Host is the one that decorates, and curates the site. Now you will be able to do this with this site on it's own. Yet you do have other options. 000webhost.com is a great site for a beginner with making a website. It has a working C-Panel, and regardless of it rough start it has shown to be great resource especially in being that it's a free service. You can choose to pay to get your site way more secure as well. HTTPS is a paid service, and I would recommend using it, but there is a work around, and I got a better way of making a site than with the Hosting web maker.
