Category : Website

Netlify is a great platform for hosting websites for free. It allows you to deploy your site from a Git repository, such as GitHub, and provides features like continuous deployment, custom domains, SSL certificates, and more. To host a website for free on Netlify, you need to follow these steps:

  • Create an account on Netlify if you don’t have one already. You can sign up for free here.
  • Create a new site from Git by clicking the “New site from Git” button on your dashboard. You will need to link your GitHub account and authorize Netlify to access your repositories.
  • Select the repository that contains your website files. You can use the search bar to find it quickly.
  • Configure your settings for deploying your site. You can specify the branch to deploy, the build command, and the publish directory. If your site is static, you don’t need to change anything here. Just click “Deploy site” to continue.
  • Wait for Netlify to build and publish your site. This may take a few minutes depending on the size and complexity of your site.
  • Once the deployment is done, you can see the URL of your site on the overview page. Netlify will generate a random name for your site, but you can change it by clicking “Site settings” and then “Change site name”.
  • Congratulations! You have successfully hosted your website for free on Netlify. You can now visit your site and share it with others.
