Hey guys! My mom wants to start a cooking/wellness blog and wants me to set up a simple WordPress site for it.
I am looking into BlueHost as an inexpensive option, but I would also like to offer her a free one as well.

The main question that comes to my mind is does your mother already have following? If she's just starting out or has a smaller following, then free hosting would a great place to start. WordPress even offers to host a site for free, though it has limits and ads.

You may be able to find another free host on this forum that can provide her with ad free hosting. However if she has a decent following or wants a more stable site then paid hosting is the way to go.
There are plenty of hosting companies here that offer great entry level plans that can install WordPress without costing too much. Be sure to shop around and find the best deal possible. I wish your mom all the best with her blog!

There is a lot of free or almost free hosting. It is important to clearly understand what tasks are set for your future or existing site. Because hosting providers don't really give anything to anyone!

Instead of free hosting, they automatically add their ads to your site. And a very important factor is often the fact that free hosting sites do not support most modern Internet technologies or have limited access to them. The choice must be made consciously.

WordPress also has the ability to create a website for free, you can use it to get started. Although, if the blog has few prospects, can it just maintain a page on social networks? It's free and there are no problems.

Can you give an advise on WordPress? I'm going to use it.

:) The choice depends on two conditions:
First. Is your mother serious about work or is it more of a hobby for her. Then free hosting will do.
Second. Do you take care of all the creation and maintenance of the site, or the goal is just blogging. Then it is better to focus on the paid option.

FreeHosting - Flexible and free webhosting.
Unlimited speed and 50 GB storage is way more than what other free hosts offer.

Unlike many free hosting providers, FreeHosting does not provide a subdomain. This has both advantages and disadvantages. Your website will look more professional with your own domain name, but again, domain names cost money.

If you're looking for decent quality free shared web hosting, GoogieHost is ready to offer you CloudLinux hosting that meets all common standards. Of course, it should not be compared with Hostinger and other paid services, but GoogieHost is quite capable of bypassing all free competitors.

GoogieHost uses subdomains like many other free hosts. However, if you have your own domain name, you can connect it.


AwardSpace - Host multiple sites for free.
AwardSpace allows you to run up to four websites on one free account, but three of them can only be subdomains. This will allow you to place subcategories or affiliate sites of the main site.

You will also get an automatic firewall that will protect your site from malicious attacks. This is a good offer, but the free plan of AwardSpace lacks an important security attribute - an SSL certificate is only available on paid plans.

With AwardSpace, you are limited to only three CMS options, which is a big limitation. When compared to other free solutions on our list, it could be said that it could be better.

All of this, of course, is great. If it were still possible to register there...
In the meantime, tech support replies like this:

I think they tell you that they give you something for free for advertising purposes. They don't really give you anything. I guess they just don't have it.
