Online blogging has become increasingly popular over the last few years, with the majority of sites on the web featuring dedicated blog sections, from small personal websites to large eCommerce or business sites. The growing popularity of online blogging has given rise to a plethora of blogging software and Content Management Systems (CMS), so the choice is yours. At Freeola, we've carefully selected the best CMS and blog softwares, so you get nothing less than a fully functional and professional blog - including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and InstantPro.

To get set up and start blogging straight away, you'll need to find some hosting for your blog. Don't worry, there's no difference between blog hosting and standard web hosting, but you will need MySQL functionality to use a Content Management System.

Installing a blog is incredibly simple. After you've purchased some nice, cheap blog hosting along with MySQL compatibility, just upload your files. A couple of mouse clicks and you're ready to go. If you don't fancy that, take a look at our zero-hassle, no expert knowledge required, InstantPro Website Builder with in-built blog functionality.


Our Top Free Blog Software & CMS

There's a vast array of choice when to comes to blogs, blog hosting and blogging platforms - whether you get them for free (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many more) and or choose to sign up to a paid service (Movable Type, Expression Engine), so making the right choice can be a little daunting.

Take a look below for some more info on some of our favorite popular, free blogging platforms, all of which can be easily used and work a treat for anything from a small personal blog to a full-scale business blog and website. If you're still confused at the prospect of CMS and full-blown web hosting and don't fancy the hassle, read a little more about our InstantPro service, complete with an Instant Blog, below.


WordPress Blog Hosting

WordPress is the most popular content management system around - in fact, it's already powering about 23% of the internet. With an easy-to-use interface, thousands of themes, plug-ins and widgets (free and paid), the ability to optimise your website at your own domain name and a great user and developer forum, it's no surprise that so many webmasters and businesses choose to create blogs and websites using WordPress.

Here's the best bit - A Wordpress blog is completely free and you can set up a WordPress blog or website effortlessly with Freeola VIP Web Hosting with MySQL database and install WordPress on your own domain name (take a look at GetDotted.com if need one of these) with a single-click using our One-Click Installation option.

Joomla Blog Hosting

For those of you that aren't inclined to go with a WordPress blog, there is Joomla. Joomla provides a powerful and free CMS/blogging platform which can be used to create a simple, personal blog or a fully functional business website. Some of the well-established sites using Joomla for their websites and blogging needs include MTV, Peugeot and eBay.

With thousands of plugins and add-ons available for Joomla users, setting up a Joomla blog doesn't necessarily require any custom code but is fully customisable if you've got any knowledge of coding. Joomla is totally free and all you need to host your Joomla website or blog with Freeola is a subscription to our VIP Web Hosting with MySQL database. You can even use our One-Click Software Installation option to install Joomla.
