    As the title says, I have a couple of domains registered (actually 3) one big mistake I did was not buying it via wordpress as I didn't know that you need a separate wordpress subscription or gotta use BlueHost/DomainHost/(and 1 more i forgot) to make it WP compatible, what is done is done, I am a noob at this I know.
    Would like to know if you guys know any domain hosting services with website builders which allow you to host your custom domain and use their drag + drop website builder.

    Ads are fine as of the moment as I am looking to build audience atm, will start monetizing after 6 or so months and then I will switch to a better host, for now a free one please.

    Thank You

    Sorry for bad English, not my first language.

    You don't need subscription for WordPress, all hosts have it, just install using their one click install.

    But when I logged into WP to create site and entered my own site name it asked me to buy a subscription package, then I googled webhosts supporting WP and only found 3 officially sponsored by WP :-(
    Here is the link: https://wordpress.org/hosting/
    Note: Yes in the first para it states there are million of hosts supporting WP but mine doesn't show a WP thingy on dashboard/cPanel

    after what @blogzandstuff said I googled a bit here and ther and found this: http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Wordpress-on-Free-Hosting-Sites

    Currently following it! Also I found out my webhost has a website builder nicely hidden away xD If WP fails then I will have to use that guess :)

    P.S. Not sure if the inbuilt builder is actually free cuz it says PRO in it's name will have to test it out :eek:

    Care to disclose where you bought your hosting so that actual people that host on there can help you as well?

    it can be installed to pretty much anywhere these days. those 3 are just recommended (most likely just as ads and they paid to be there)

    1 on https://blacksteelhosting.com/
    2 on freehosting.com (free acc)
    Question resolved actually, I mailed the support and they showed me how dumb I am apparently, there is a software store on their website which has 100s of softwares on it, one of them is WP just select it and press install xD.

    Really sorry for wasting your time huys :/ But I learnt something new cuz of y'all :)

    So how to close a thread..........?

    You could have just upload WP yourself through FTP but I got the feeling you dont know what that is which you really need to learn because you will need it.

    If your going to use free hosting you better make sure your information isnt being sold. Nothing in this world is free and everything comes at a cost. Remember that.
