WordPress is a famous open-source and free platform that allows you to create websites, even professional ones, without necessarily having knowledge in the field of web programming. Through the official website WordPress.com you can get a hosting perfectly configured with this famous CMS (Content Management System).

Although there are plans available with prices starting from 4 euros/month, it is also possible to get a completely free hosting, but whose resources are limited compared to those of paid plans. L ‘ WordPress Free hosting allows you to host a single certificate minute Web Site SSL Let’s Encrypt to keep the encrypted connection for users who visit and third-level domain ( nomesito.wordpress.com ).

Furthermore, you only have 3GB of storage space available to upload your files, you do not have the possibility of obtaining technical support (either via email or chat) and you cannot insert advertising banners (only those of WordPress are present. .com ).

As for the management panel of some server features, the latter will not be available and you will not be able to have backups or access to the database. In short, free WordPress.com hosting can be an adequate alternative in case you are taking the first steps in creating a website. If you are looking for something that allows you to get your hands on the server configuration or to manage the WordPress installation, know that it is not the right choice.

Through this editor you can also make the composition and publication of the articles of your blog or, in the case of e-commerce, the addition of products. Also interesting is the possibility of using some tools for page optimization and management of SEO options, adding the Google Analytics code or creating a multilingual site.
