Is it possible to create a website for free? I don't have enough information about creating a website. I want to know the things to consider on creating a website and the cost if it's not free. I want to start a business online that's why i'm reading some articles about websites.

Well if you want to create a website for free, then there's a lot of websites out there that offers for free website like wordpress.com, wix.com, leadpages etc. But the thing for free is it is not domain, the most important thing if you have website is that it SHOULD be in domain, like yourname.com since wix.com and wordpress.com is not in domain name, but they will offer you to upgrade your website and that's the time that you can have your domain name. About the cost well as far as I know it's actually affordable especially if you your plan is annually but of course you can try for a monthly.

You can make the website for free using the CMS like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart etc. They do offer the free themes using which you can develop the site. You will need to pay for the hosting service and domain registration. It's not free, you should pay for it.

Yes, there are various website makers that offer free website design such as wix.com but the thing is sooner or later you will be asked to upgrade for better outcome and design of your website.

The two services I like most and have been using for the last year are wordpress and blogger. The plugins nd free themes on wordpress are absolutely amazing.
The limitations of a free account are that they will show their name in your domain link like name.wordpress.com or name.blogspot.com which is not good if you want to earn from it. If you buy a premium account then this tag is removed from domain which makes your site come up in organic search results and also by subscribing to premium you can put any advertisement or affiliate link into your website without any restriction.

You can build a site for free. You'll need to use a pre-provided template though. Or if you already have a template you'll have to implement that one. No one will sell, give, provide or create you a template for free. Unless you offer to do something for them maybe as an exchange? Like provide them with a logo or some big time promotion for their site in exchange for them building yours. Even templates available online cannot be used without their watermark if you don't purchase first. My advice would be to build your own template if you have coding skills.

For a basic website there are a lot of free hosting providers and you can migrate later to a paid provider if you need it. Even you can get a free .tk domain if you don't mind it being an "exotic" extension.

Yes, just don't buy your own domain name. Most hosting sites ask you to pay for their product if you want to buy the domain. Use the domain name they give it to you and you don't need to pay anything.

But there are some really cheap hosting sites, why not use them? like hostbuddy.com they offer a very cheap hosting service, it's good as free. Try to check it out.

You can have a free website like WordPress. As for me, I am using WordPress, because they have cool themes and templates. Another thing is you can also add widgets, but if what you are looking for your own domain name and web hosting, you will really have to pay. If I may associate it with a book, it is like a copyright.

There's a lot of website where you can create your website for free. All you have to do is be creative, have an attractive template and content. However, sooner or later they will ask you to upgrade and get a domain. Getting a domain and putting out some money is not a bad thing. You can have extra income with your website and it's best to put it in a domain. It's just like investing.

While there are ways to create websites for free, it is not advisable to do so especially if the website is to be a source of income for you. Free websites tend to suffer a lot of server downtime and this won't be good for you

Yes certainly, there are plenty of Companies that offer it free initially - But you will soon have to pay when it comes to upgrading.

Yes!
You make your own website for free and it's easy when you're familiar html at least the basics of it. You can use bootstrap to make your graphical user interface attractive and appealing to the eyes. You can learn from tutorials on YouTube, there are thousand options to choose from. If you're not into programming, you can try wix, it will help you to build your website without a sweat. Please be reminded that you still need to pay for a domain.

wix is very slow and it is just for newbies who don't know how to create websites.
If you don't want to pay anything for your websites, you need to know everything to build and develop it. That requires more time and efforts and I am sure you will feel tired when doing this job without pay for services to make your website to be published to internet quickly.

You can make a website without paying anything at first. Such as WordPress, Joomla, and blogger. They will provide free templates for your design as well as themes. But as the time pass by, they will ask you to upgrade and pay for your domain name. With that, all the profit generated by your webste will be all yours.

If you make website yourself, you should not pay for anything. The only thing you should pay for is hosting. Otherwise nobody except you will see your site. But even here you can save. Plenty of hostings have trial plans, when you should not pay for some period of usage (week, or month, or any other period defined by hosting provider). If your site is small enough, some hosting services provide free plans with some low specifications, but it may be enough to host a simple website.
