Yes, you can have a free custom domain name from some web hosting companies that offers free domain when you buy their hosting service. E.g DomainKing.
What makes up a website?
A website is made up of custom domain name, web hosting account and CMS installed on your purchased server. Wait, let me explain further but before then, let me answer the question.
After buying my domain name, will my website be automatically visible?
No, it won’t! Having just a domain name doesn’t mean you already have a website and as such people can’t find you on Google and other search engines.
Before you can be visible on Google, you need either of these two things below;
Web host account
Blogspot account for you to connect your domain name
Let me explain further….
1). When you buy a web host account, you will be provided a server space, Cpanel where you can install CMS of your choice (WordPress, Joomla etc) on your domain and then you can set up your self hosted website.
After you set it up and start publishing meaningful and engaging contents, before sure people find you on Google and other.
