How to host your website for free

Make sure your homepage file is named index.html or else it’s not going to work!

Hosting a website used to be complicated, and at times expensive. Luckily, we have some solutions that are both easy to use and free now!

Github pages:

Both GitHub pages and Netlify give us free hosting solutions for static websites. By static, I mean using HTML, CSS, and JS, but no databases and all that fun stuff, so if you’re looking to host a WordPress site, this won’t work.

Both work with static site generators like Jekyll, Hugo and others, and Netlify even has a CMS that you can set up with your static site generator. I host my site with Netlify, and using Jekyll I have a blog (my articles) and it works great :).

I have a newsletter!
