WordPress Free Website Hosting

Web Publishing is a free website service for the NC State community. All students, faculty, and staff at NC State can build as many websites as you want in the Web Publishing service—100% free.

When you build a free website with Web Publishing, you get:

  • Your own website at a [something].wordpress.ncsu.edu URL.
  • A curated set of themes and plugins to extend your website, including the NC State Theme designed by University Communications. (Additional themes and plugins are not allowed at this level.)
  • Access to learning resources
  • Support from the NC State Help Desk when you need assistance.

Your website must be renewed every year. Renewal notifications go out in July, and websites that aren’t renewed are removed from the service by September.
