I've Heard That I Don't Need Web Hosting ?
That's true. You can avoid us altogether and get a WordPress website that is not self hosted, but your domain will look like this: domain.wordpress.com. Paying for hosting (through our process) means you will have a domain that looks like this: mydomain.com. It's completely up to you. In order to get a free website from us, you will have to sign up with one of our preferred providers and pay for hosting.
