Based in Italy, Altervista was founded in 2001 as a free platform for users to blog about topics they’re passionate about – and make money while they’re at it. Since then, it’s grown to become one of Italy’s largest free blog hosts, with 2,500,000 sites hosted on its servers. An in-depth look at its services explain why: with Altervista, you get unlimited space, a completely customizable WordPress site, great connection speed and uptime, and a team of experts that select the best advertising for your niche so that banners shown are congruent with your site’s content and design. Altervista has essentially simplified the entire process of building a money-making blog, so users need only focus on creating solid content and attracting visitors to their site.
Altervista’s blog hosting plans are free, and they remain free forever. In addition to the unlimited space and easy WordPress installations, users get FTP access, all the plugins they might need, a range of professionally-designed themes, social sharing tools, and of course, Altervista’s trademark integrated advertising that makes it convenient for users to earn and withdraw funds. The best part is that the bandwidth allocation grows with your site, so even if your blog is getting thousands of hits every week, you’ll never be asked to pay: in fact, you’ll be rewarded for it with additional income.
