Free website hosting as it is clear from the name itself that it is a free non-paid web hosting service. The web hosts provides subdomains to anyone who want to make website and there are many such web hosts like Blogger and WordPress. When we make our website with the help of these free website hosting services, your website gets such name like mysite.blogspot.com and mysite.wordpress.com.

There are many web hosting companies that provide free web hosting with some or the other products/services that you buy from them.
