How to get a Free Domain name for your Blog?

Do you want to start blogging? Don’t have enough budget! Don’t worry, In this post, I’m going to discuss how you can get a free domain name for your blog. You can easily get a subdomain with your blog when you start a free blog in blogger or WordPress.

The only problem with a subdomain is its length. Generally, subdomains are longer than 15 to 20 characters, which is not good for SEO. I never recommend you to use a free domain if you are serious about blogging or want to start an online business.

A free domain is helpful for you only if you are new to Blogging & want to learn everything before starting a brand. It is good to know everything before you start as it helps you in clearing all your doubts.

You can use that free domain with all the blogging platforms. A free domain comes with extensions like  .tk,  .ml, .ga,   .cf, and .gq. You can use any of the extensions with your domain name. For example, fulltechhelp.tk is a free domain. Similarly, harishjoshi.tk is also a domain name.
