Now the question is why people prefer to publish in their own domain when publishing in Subdomain is completely free. The reasons for preferring own domain are:
1. Total control over the site
2. No chance of removal by subdomain provider
4. Develop its own personality
For those who are still undecided about setting up website may decide for a free site. Google geocities or Google page creator are good examples of free webs site providers. Literally hundreds of companies that provide free hosting. The only drawbacks are they will reserve space on your site to serve advertising banner ads and other links. Most of these free websites offers template-based WYSIWIG interfaces that enable you to design your website using nothing more than your mouse and keyboard.
