Connect Your Custom Domain to your Tumblr Site
Is Tumblr the right webhost for my website?
Tumblr is a free blogging platform that makes it easy for anyone to jump right into crafting the blog they want. Whether you need a space to run a company blog, post your photography portfolio, or assemble a never-ending stream of kitten GIFs, Tumblr is an intuitive and free choice for your domain’s website.
With an array of layouts and templates to choose from, you can whip up a professional, manageable blogging space that suits your style in no time. Tumblr’s built-in sharing features allow other Tumblr users to “follow” your blog, where they can “like” and even “reblog” your content — making your blog more visible on the web. It’s a webhost and a social media platform rolled into one.
