This guide will help you to create a free website on Blogspot, you need not buy a domain and hosting services. Blogspot is a platform which allows you to build and host a website for free, it owns by Google so you do not have to worry about server downtime and other issues. Moreover, there are thousands of free blogger templates which you can use to give a professional look to your website. Let’s start with step by step guide for creating a website for free.

Step 1: Login to Blogger

Go to http://www.blogger.com/home and sign in with your Gmail id and password, if you don’t have an account then you can create it for free by clicking the “sign up” button at the top right corner as shown in the below screenshot. Blogger belongs to Google that’s the reason you would be needing a Gmail account for building a website on Blogspot.

Step 2: Confirm your profile

Once you are done with logging in with your Gmail credentials, you will be seeing a screen like the below one. Click on “Continue to Blogger“.

Step 3: Create a New Blog

Step 4: Provide Website’s domain name and title

In this step, you would need to provide the title and address of your website. For example: If you want to build a website on books then the Address (It’s also known as Domain name and site’s URL) could be bestbooks.blogspot.com or itbooks.blogspot.com and the title can be Best IT Books Blog. You must know that since these domain names are free, they would be suffixed with blogspot.com by default. Blogspot also provides us the option of having custom domain names and we would see how to add custom domain names in this guide later.

The domain name must be unique so there are chances that the domain name you wanna choose is already registered. In that case, you just need to try a different domain name until unless the blue tick gets appeared on the right side of Address field as shown below.

Once it’s done, choose a template (you can choose any template at this point, you would be able to change it later at any point of time, we will show you how to do that) and click Create Blog!
