I have a domain. I'm looking for somewhere to park a placeholder page for free.  Ideas?

What's a good hosting site for a Wordpress site ?

If you're ok with ads, go with wix.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Where'd you get the domain from? Many domain providers offer placeholder pages for free

I LOVE LOVE siteground.com. They answer your questions before you even hit SUBMIT.

Interesting.

I used them a few years ago. While the response time was pretty good, the content was terrible. The reps had no idea what they were talking about.

Maybe they got better.

My domain provider offer their standard under constrution.  Not customizable. 
If you're ok with ads, go with wix.
Will check out,  I thought freemium does not allow your own domain.

I was correct. To host your own domain requires a subscription.

I"ll explain my needs in detail, perhaps someone knows of a solution.


I registered a domain for use as business email. I signed up for a free domain email service (zoho.)  As I have no http host, a visit to my domain gets a Server not found error.  I'd like to have a page load that says  mydomain.com  with a Contact Us link to the business email.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
