Creating a website is absolutely free. There is no hidden charges. But in free service, the name of your website will also contain the name of provider. For example , If you create a website on blogger, then your website address would look like www. your_website. blogspot. com and similarly , in wordpress , (.wordpress.com) would be added at the end. To remove these, you will have to purchase domain.
