All of that for free? Are you crazy?

Yup, we get this question a lot. See why WPBeginner offer free blog setups.

Majority of blogs fail within a few months of starting out. Mostly because they fail to reach the blogger’s expectations and goals.

Having failed quite a few times and spending countless hours researching and experimenting, I learned that the issue always comes down to a solid setup.

This is the reason why you see expert bloggers starting one successful blog after another. They have figured out the right set of tools they need to increase conversion, get a lot of traffic from SEO, increase engagement through social media, while making money from their passion.

I created WPBeginner to offer users what I wish I had when I was starting out.

Don’t let technical barriers stop you from starting your blog. Let my team build the blog for you … absolutely free of charge, so you can focus on doing what you love.

Neil Patel– Neil Patel, Founder of CrazyEgg

WPBeginner is one of those cornerstone places you need bookmarked. I just hate that it’s called ‘beginner,’ because I’ve got 12 years experience and I still learn things there.

Our Free Blog Setup is a Two Step Process

Follow the steps below to complete your free WordPress blog setup application. Setups are completed in the order they are received.

1 Domain + Web Hosting

Every website needs a domain and web hosting. A domain is your website’s address on the internet (i.e wpbeginner.com). Web hosting is where your website live on the internet. It’s where your files, images, and articles are stored.

You need to have both of these to start a blog.

In order for us to keep our business model sustainable and provide you with this excellent service, we require users to signup with our partner web hosts. These companies are hand-picked by our founder, Syed Balkhi, and they are known to offer top-notch service.

This way you get quality web hosting, which you were going to pay for anyways. At no additional cost to you, we receive a small commission from our partner web hosting companies for referring a new client. You actually end up getting significant discounts because each of these companies offer special deals to our readers.

It’s a WIN WIN WIN, all the way around.
