Owning a website is the norm nowadays. Whether to showcase yourself or your product, most people seem to have a reason (or more!) to own one. However, not many are willing to pay for this service.

If you are among this category of penny pinchers, you are in luck. I know just what you need – Dropbox! Dropbox is a file hosting service that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, and client software. Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronises so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of the computer it is viewed on. Files placed in this folder are also accessible through a website and mobile phone applications.

site44Dropbox offers 2GB of this space free for everyone that signs on. In conjunction with site44.com, you have more than enough space needed for a website.

Follow the steps below and you will have your website running in a few minutes. It is simple:

Limitations

Free users can create up to 5, low-traffic pages in this site. Site44.com  is definitely not a replacement for fully equipped web hosting service, but for starters who don’t need all those features  and you use Dropbox anyway, then this is a good option. Do check it out!

  1. Hi, I’m one of the founders of Site44. You most certainly *can* host a blog on Site44. My blog (http://blog.smarx.com), Site44’s blog (http://blog.site44.com), and Webscript’s blog (http://blog.webscript.io) are all hosted on Site44.

    The Site44 blog uses Octopress, which is a variant of Jekyll, the most popular static blog generator. My blog and the Webscript blog use Pelican, a similar but less popular static blog generator.

    http://www.garron.me/blog/ is another blog hosted on Site44 (by a customer, not someone affiliated with Site44).
