Google Web Hosting Review

Google Web Hosting or Google Sites is Google’s free web hosting service that allows the users to host, create and customize their websites easily. Google offers a wide range of templates that are built-in to match your website needs. Google categorizes its templates in the following categories:

  • Business & Collaboration
  • Activities & Events
  • Schools & Education
  • Clubs & Organizations
  • Personal & Family
  • Government & non-profits

Also, do you prefer Navy, Olive or Cherry? You will find over 30 themes to customize your website look and feel.  Moreover, you can decide whether you want to make your website available to the public or just to specific people.

 

 

Simply and easily, after filling a few fields your website is good to go, with a website URL (restricted to be between 6-30 characters) in the following structure:

https://sites.google.com/site/YourSiteName

Now you can begin inserting text, links, images or videos in a similar way to the way you insert content into a word document.
