Hi all, today I want to talk about N.NU. A site that made me wondered about creating my own. You see…this site offers a free service, just as the ones listed here, and It was created by a 23 year old young man.
I was like….. if this guy can do it so can I. The site didn’t look difficult to build and the setup to what I was trying to accomplish was pretty easy.
There was nothing magical or over complicated to this site either. What made think I could probably pull this off is the way he integrated WordPress into his project. Just brilliant!
It was so easy it’s madness!!
I often wondered why the hell people crowd Facebook all day long and then send to ask for money. If they can spend so much time on Facebook, twitter and other freaking sites just wasting time, they should do something productive like this guy did. Heck, do what im doing and they probably will make a some money instead of begging!!
Glad I got that off my chest….now I can move on.
Now that I am finish ranting, let me introduce you to http://www.n.nu websites. Ever heard of it?
I am also certain you haven’t. I didn’t know about N.NU either……. but during my research on topics to post I came across.
What does N.NU do? To put is simple…..give you s cool tool to build a free site.
Well, I did mention it earlier but just in-case you missed it here goes..
N.nu offers free website creation tools that allow us to build a website for free. This company is based in Sweden so your free domains will end in .nu. It won’t get ranked in the US search results. To get around that you just have to buy the domain with a .com extension. Your site will get index but you will not find it in on Google USA, Yahoo USA or Bing USA.
I must say the website was easy has heck to get done. The inclusion of WordPress makes it so easy that even my grandmother could do it
I’ve seen a lot of website interface. By far, this one is probably one of the simplest. Weebly is the next simplest because they use a drag and drop system.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Weebly but this one you’ve go to see.
With Weebly, you’ve got to hit a publish button when your done making up site so the world and Google/Bing and yahoo can see your site. N.nu on the other hand, doesn’t even have a publish button.
That’s pretty cool. Because it’s wordpress integrated no publish button is required. See my WordPress tutorial here and why I love WordPress.
N.UN gives you five pages to start with and adding more is a breeze. You can edit or delete these pages with just one click. The pages you get are….About page, Blog page, Photo page, Home page and Contact page. I set up this one in just a few minutes. I know it doesn’t look like much but it was just for demonstration purpose.
Because N.NU is optimize for wordpress themes, you’ll have over 150 of them to pick from. Although with the free version, I didn’t see that much.
I guess after the 30 days is up and you have to upgrade, I might see the others. But that doesn’t matter at the moment.
One other thing that I didn’t see was the option to change your site headers. I know they are there but when I was setting up free website creation tool I didn’t come across them.
With that said, today’s free software tools to build a website are design with beginners in mind. The point and click features makes setting up a site fast easy. Some has gone to great length with drag and drop options. To build a site for yourself, a church, a business or for what ever comes to the mind, the offers to get it done are plenty and the cost is small to none.
Remember now that you won’t get Google US ranking for a .nu domain extension but you get the option with 30 days to buy a .com extension. On the upside though, if you are reading this page in Sweden, then you will have a greater chance of getting found in the Google serps for your chosen keyword.
However, If you don’t really care about getting round in the search results but want a site up, then go and build your site with N.NU. What are you waiting for. LOL
