    Ok so I've made a few sites over the years, but they all didn't succeed my expectations (in terms of income).
    So I want to make a new site, but I don't want to pay that montly fee for hosting, because thats like 5.99$ a month at go daddy.
    All my previous sites had hosting at go daddy and I bought the domain names at go daddy too.

    Whats the best way to avoid paying for hosting?
    Do I make my blog on wordpress.com or on Blogger?

    Yes. But most of the people won't take your site seriously.
    Domain + hosting = ~$10. It's not much and you can't get back these money in no time.

    or you can use free webhosting, you can try x10hosting.com

    You can use blogger.

    On the other hand, you can get your first month hosting for as low as $0.99 and I am sure you will earn the money back in no time.

    I pay $2/month with Fatcow.com and I'm pretty sure they give you a free domain. For $24 a year including a domain that's a pretty low investment.

    if you have issues with investing 6$ bucks per month on hosting..i doubt you will make any money in IM world...you need to spend money to make money.. and 6$ is coffee in starbucks.

    Good luck

    If you really don't want to get charged for hosting, use free blogging sites instead. Wordpress would be a good idea.

    Thanks everyone for the replies.

    It's not like I can't buy hosting. I just wanted to know are there any good alternatives, which i see there aren't.

    If you want a site which barely loads and looses you potential customers, which will one day be held at ransom until you pay some free hosting company for their paid hosting, then go for free hosting. If you want a website which can be thrown in the bin at any given moment, go with Blogger. If you want to be serious and make money, keep paying your hosting, it will pay off the best in the end.

    That's the area you should invest in this business model. By the way hosting isn't that hard to obtain for a low fee.

    I can give you hosting for free. Hosting your websites shouldn't be something you have to constantly worry about. PM sent.
