Here’s How Anyone Can Make a Free Website with a Blog in Just 3 Minutes (10-Step Guide with Pictures)

Go to www.SimpleSite.com and click on “Make a Free Website or Blog”.

1. What is the purpose of your website/blog?

First step: Tell what type of website you want to create.

Check the box “Personal / Blog” and click on next when you are ready to proceed.

Are you in doubts about what kind of website you want to create? Don’t worry too much about it. If you create a blog, you can always change it to a website and vice versa. A common misconception is that a blog and a website are two different things. The truth is that a blog is actually just a feature you can add to your website.

2. What do you want to do with your personal website?

Select an answer and continue.

3. Select a color theme for your website

Now the fun begins. There are many color combinations to choose from. Pick your favorite colors and you’ll instantly see a preview of how they will look on your website!

As with the previous step, you can always change the colors later if you regret your choice.

4. Pick a nice picture for your website

6. Add a title to your website

This is the name of your website or blog. It will appear on top of every page and blog post of your website.

7. Choose a username

This will be your login name, but also your web address. E.g. username.simplesite.com.

SimpleSite has a lot of users, so your preferred username might be taken. In that case you can think of an alternative name or add a string of numbers to your username.

But if you have a perfect name in mind there is also another option: You might want to consider getting your own personal domain. E.g. your-personal-domain-name.com. In that case your username will only be visible to you, and your visitors will only see your custom domain name.

It’s possible to upgrade to your own domain name at the end of the set-up process.
