Free Websites

THIS WHOLE WEBSITE was created with the free installation of WordPress that comes with our Linux hosting plans. In your cpanel just click and go – OR, let us setup a FREE WEBSITE customised for you.

No knowledge of HTML is needed. Just follow the WordPress prompts. There are some 1700 free themes (templates) available for WordPress and hundreds of paid themes. The free themes can be installed from within the WordPress admin screen.

You can change your theme at any time even after you have created many web pages on your website.


Platypus Hosting can install such a website for you for just the cost of the hosting: $52 per year for 50Mb. (There are many other plans – up to unlimited bandwidth). No setup cost. Then you just type in your content (or copy and paste) and upload your pictures.

Platypus Hosting will link to your website from their highly ranked website. Links pages have less than 50 links per page. This gets your new website quickly listed on Google and other major search engines. Our servers are in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia.

Where do you start?
  1. Choose a domain name (or see subdomains at Platypus Hosting).
  2. Choose hosting plan.
  3. Install WordPress through your hosting control panel. (Or let us install it).
  4. Login to WordPress Admin.
  5. Start pasting or typing your content.
  6. Upload any images you want.
  7. Evaluate other WordPress themes and try them out on your website

That’s it! You will immediately see your website online in your browser. Within 7 to 10 days of setting up hosting with Platypus Hosting you will be listed in Google.

In your hosting control panel you can setup email addresses and/or email forwarders. You can see Web Stats analysed – showing how many visitors and what pages they stopped on. Subdomains can be installed. Other domain names you own can be freely parked on this website and open it.

In your WordPress dashboard you can choose to make it a blog or a normal website. If you don’t want a blog, set one of your pages to be the static home page. If you do want a blog then whatever you put into Posts shows as your home page.

If you just send us your logo or header picture, Platypus Websites will install WordPress and get you started.

WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world.
