I need a website to practice wordpress. I can't afford 37$ a year. Does the staff have another alternate for me?

Do you mean you cannot get a host? Just install wordpress locally.

I mean i don't have any domain or host. I need them to try wordpress. Treehouse is offering 37$ per year. But i cannot afford that much.

You can install wordpress on you computer and use a local server like xamp to run it. Treehouse has a course for it, http://teamtreehouse.com/library/local-wordpress-development

Thanks a bunch, brother!

The price for the treehouse hosting plan is cheap but they sell annual plans and paying for one year upfront may represent a high cost for some of us. Most of the popular hosting websites have monthly plans that can cost as low as 4$ (or cheaper). They might be more expensive on a long term but are more affordable for people who can't pay all the 37$ upfront.

Just Google "Web Hosting" and you will some options.
