"You can start a blog in just a few seconds using Hashnode and then you can move that to your own domain if you get one later. They will even help distribute your articles on their platform. By far the best place to create a blog, imho."
Hashnode is a free developer blogging platform that allows you to publish articles on your own domain and helps you stay connected with a global developer community.
This gives you a huge advantage: Google and other search engines send traffic directly to your domain, and Hashnode community members discover your articles on their feed.
Map your custom domain in just seconds via our free CNAME pointing feature. Serve your blog over HTTPS with no extra configuration.
Get a high performance, secure, and fully-optimized blog that delights your readers.
Every time you write an article, Hashnode publishes it on your domain and shares it with the community members on the homepage. The readers are directed to your website to read and interact with your content.
Knowledge sharing on Hashnode is and will always be completely free.
Because we value the relationship between you and your readers, we won’t show ads or pop-ups on your articles.
"After several delays and a variety of reasons, I can finally start writing blogs on my personal domain. I previously published on DevTo, Medium and Quora. I joined Hashnode a couple of weeks ago and was completely blown away by the customizations and SEO features, prompting me to turn my Hashnode blog into my own homepage on the internet"
