Why not Host your Niche Sites for Free?
Okay, so you got this terrific “long tail keyword” and you want to make a niche site for it, but you are thinking twice about maybe it mightn’t work, and you want to put your toe in the water first before you spend too much, so what do you do?

- Full Featured Domains
Of course, if your current host doesn’t offer add-ons and sub-domains as part of your deal, you might need to look around for a better domain host where you can host your niche sites for free.
