Can anyone in the house please tell me if it possible to point my paid domain to a free web hosting account like 1freehosting.com, 000webhost.com, 0hosti.com, etc?
If YES, how?
Thank you all

One way is if the free host has a feature where you can configure it on their end. Some free hosts may offer the feature for free while some may ask you to upgrade to a paid plan. Blogspot has such a feature and they call it custom domain. They offer it for free. Wordpress.com also has such feature but you need to upgrade first before you can use it. Using this method, only the new domain name shows up in the address bar

If your free host does not have the feature then another way  you could use your own domain is if your domain registrar's panel has the feature that allows you to redirect your domain. This will cause anybody who enters the new domain name to be redirected to the free website. The free address will still be visible.

A third method is to use a 301 redirect which is slightly more advanced but does basically same thing as method two above, only this time it can be done from your host server or even wordpress. But not all free hosts will allow you to do a 301 redirect of this nature.

Lastly please always try not to use all capital letters in your post titles.

Thank you very much and God bless you Tony for your response. I believe you have given me all I need. I will now go on and implement the infos.
Again, thank you for the correction concerning the heading.
