Can you believe it?? I would have definitely not if somebody else would have told me this just like that.

But its true. I have just created one for my friend Akash for just Rs. 57.77 only. Isn’t that amazing.

Read on to know how?

First of all what you need is a domain name.

  • Register a .info domain name of your choice from GoDaddy. GoDaddy’s offer price for .info domain is only Rs. 57.77 (including ICANN charges)

It has been in offer for this price for couple of days now. (Don’t really know for how many days they will keep this offer).

Register it for a year only as for registration of more than a year they charge heavily. Again don’t know why.

Your domain name would be registered instantly.

  • Now go to Domain Manager in GoDaddy control panel and change the name servers to
    • ns1.dreamhost.com
    • ns2.dreamhost.com
    • ns3.dreamhost.com

Yes you are right we will be hosting this on DreamHost. Wonder why dreamhost since it is not a cheap hosting provider (but is definitely reliable).

  • Dreamhost also offers free web hosting service for hosting multiple applications. This is being offered via DreamHost Apps.

DreamHost Apps offers you the following features :

  • Best WordPress hosting
  • Unlimites Disk Space
  • Easy Web-Based Toolbox
  • Free WordPress Installation
  • Free WordPress upgrades
  • WordPress-friendly hosting
  • Free subdomain
  • WordPress optimized services
  • Easy WordPress setup
  • Unlimited Bandwidth

There is only one problem with this hosting and that is you can not access the FTP or database of your blog and you can not upgrade your WordPress software yourself.  It is done by their staff and it takes some time.

Create and activate your account instantly. Install WordPress application and your website is ready within 2 minutes.

It’s so easy. Isn’t it.

Now I know you also believe that a website can be created in as cheap as Rs 57.77

Hope its useful to you too.
