Does WordPress offer free hosting?

At the moment, WordPress does offer free hosting, but only if you're willing to include ".wordpress.com" in your domain name.

For instance, if you wanted to call your website "SwimmingTipsAndTricks.com" and were looking to host it on WordPress for free, then your site would be "SwimmingTipsAndTricks.wordpress.com".

If, however, you'd like your website to just have your domain name in it, and nothing else, then you'll need to decide on a different website to host your site for you, all of which will charge a fee for that.

The cost of hosting depends on many criteria, such as:

1. Size of diskspace

2. Number of free domains included

3. Number of sub-domains

4. Ability to host multiple sites

If you're looking for your own domain with good capabilities but without much expense, you'll probably have to pay about £40 a year, upwards.

WordPress itself recommends using one of the following hosts:

1. Bluehost

2. DreamHost

3. Laughing Squid

But if the £40+ investment sounds too expensive, I'd recommend simply including ".wordpress.com" in your domain name. A lot of people do the same, especially when they're first starting out and/or are only using the site as a kind of personal blog to share amongst friends, families, and followers.

Word Press is another type of hosting service. It is just an awesome platform for any purpose site. Sorry to say that I don't know it offers free hosting or not. As for the hosting I am using Mywindowshosting.com, which offers good hosting services in affordable price as well as free. They are very competitive if it's about prices and also they provide quite good support and I'm satisfied with their service.

WordPress is free. The only real cost is web hosting and domain.

So, I am afraid the answer to your question is No.

WordPress Beginner users can get a domain name and web hosting for as low as $3.95/month from Bluehost or Siteground (both officially recommended WordPress hosting providers). Additional costs would be commercial WordPress themes. However, you are not required to use those.

As a WordPress beginner, you should also learn more practice to secure your WordPress website. After all, data is valuable these days.
