Many websites offer free domains but they force you to buy hosting plans and if you are a student, you have the choice to pay $0 for practicing a fully functional WordPress website.

Can we get free hosting?

Yes, we can definitely get free hosting offered by a number of companies out there. But the drawback is that the speed of hosting is very slow and your files are insecure.
Some of the best Free Hosting Companies are as follows
