Create a Free Website From Dropbox Folders with Site44

Published on 10/4/2012 by

Designing a website and getting it online is hard work! Provided you have the vision to create a masterpiece out of your domain name, you still need to tweak your webpages, update them often, and find a good web hosting company to host it all. Imagine creating a website in seconds from images in your Dropbox folder. Yep, you can do that, and here’s how to get started.

Site44.com + Dropbox = web hosting made easy

Site44.com is a free webapp that connects with your Dropbox account and helps you to quickly and easily create multiple page websites. Users can host a website using their own domain name or with a .site44.com subdomain. Both options are free of charge, and allow for up to five, low-traffic webpages.

Site44's new service, still operating in beta, is not a replacement for a quality web hosting provider, but it is perfect for sharing photos with friends and family, uploading a resume, or for anyone not needing all the bells and whistles of a full host. Still, if you’re looking for more space and bandwidth, Site44 offers paid web hosting. Those hosting plans start at $4.95/month, and allow users to host up to 10 websites and use 10 gigabytes of bandwidth each month. For $9.95 a month, you can host up to 50 websites and burn through 50 gigabytes of data transfer.
