In addition to data packages, generally making a website costs money, at least for renting web hosting and domains. However, if you want to learn, there are several free ways to build a website.
What do you need to create a website?
– Web Hosting
– Website Address (Domain)
– WordPress or other website engines.
Like a factory, web hosting can be likened to land or place. WordPress is a production machine, and the domain is the name or address of the manufacturer. To get to the factory location, one must know the correct address. To open the Google search engine page, we need to enter the Google URL https://www.google.co.id in a browser (chrome, firefox, safari, etc.). Likewise our website later.
As mentioned above, the fee for hosting is generally intended for hosting and domain rental. Now! What if the hosting is free, the domain is also free? No charge! Free aliases.
Is there any? Lots!
How to Get a Free Short Extension Domain (Not a Sub Domain)
Currently, many hosting providers provide an opportunity for visitors to sample their hosting services for free. They will usually give sub domains for free. For example, the main domain is kompasiana.com, then the sub domains will be “apasaja.kompasiana.com”, “dotdot.kompasiana.com”, etc. naming after the main domain. Where can I get a free domain that is not a sub domain?
We can get free domains with extensions .tk, .ga, .cf, .ml and .gq through Freenom.com. Your website address will end in one of these extensions. Example: kompasiana.tk, kompasiana.ga, etc. If later you make a sub domain, it will be like this, “subdomain.kompasiana.tk”, “apasaja.kompasiana.ga” etc.
Freenom provides a free domain for 1 year. How to register the domain is very easy. You only need to visit the freenom.com website, select a domain, then checkout. However, there are several reports that Indonesian IPs are not accepted at Freenom, so the solution must be to use a VPN.

Such as unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, although they still have limitations in other respects, they are sufficient for learning media.
