cheapest domain registry and single page hosting

Damocles 3,471 August 20, 2015 at 02:42 PM
i want to create a web page for my son's team. it would have a paragraph of text and maybe a team photo. no complicated code, scripting, etc.

what is the cheapest way to register that domain and host the page?

can i host the page on a free blog site and have the URL point there?

thanks in advance for any advice.

(i know a better alternative may be to just set up a facebook page, but i've already put the domain name on some publicity material laugh out loud)

it looks like wordpress is $18 annual for domain/host, or $13 annual for host if you have the domain.

https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

any better than that?

you can certainly do a free blog site, I would personally recommend using github [github.com] instead of a single or small/few-pages of static content for a website

so really you just need the domain at this point, in which case there are plenty of options - I have been using google and am happy with them, but there are many other good choices as well.

thanks to you and someone who PM'd me. i think i'll check out blogger, which gives me the hosting for $0 and the domain for $12. this is for 5th graders, so it's more the concept than anything else. i don't think anyone will ever visit it :-)
