There are free and self hosted websites that you can use as your own websites. One of the examples of free websites is blogspot.com. You can use blogspot.com to make your personal blog, recipe gallery, or even company profile, instantly.
On the other side, there’s a self hosted website, which means in order to use the website you have to buy domain and hosting service first. You can have your own name as the domain, for example http://vanidiana.com (my personal website).
Free and self hosted websites have their own advantages and disadvantages. I’ll write more about them in the next posts.
