    Recommendations for a hosting/CMS combination?

    Hi Guys,

    I set up my personal website a few months ago at: https://jeremymherbert.com/
    using Wordpress.COM. I'm very happy with the hosting/CMS solution that it offers but one issue I am experiencing is embedding interactive maps and data visualizations (namely ArcGIS and Tableau) into my website. I know Wordpress.com is picky regarding what iframes and embedded content are supported, and that if I wanted to upgrade my account to a business plan that supports plugins and my interactive maps I would need to pay $20+/month to do this. I'm looking for something a bit more affordable, so I wanted to ask for some recommendations regarding a hosting/CMS combination that is similar to Wordpress.com, supports any iframe or and embedded content, and is less than $10/month? Thanks in advance.

    Get a cheap webhost such as cleverdot.com for $40-$60 per year. That's about $4.50 per month.
    It will be more for a secure "https" site.
    Then you can install WordPress as your website. In fact, the webhost control panel will install it for you.
    You will then install your own theme, plugins, scripting, etc.

    It's your own webhost account, you can do whatever you want with it. You can even NOT use wordpress if you want.
