    You said you have designed Landing Pages in Dreamweaver, you do know a Landing Page is a website right, that's probably why you created it in Dreamweaver.

    You know how a website works? Hosting and domain?
    If you know Dreamweaver then you need to export the website and import in onto your host. The main HTML file should be called Index.

    Regards,

        Free hosting isn't recommended at all. Those free hosting services are often slow and have a reptuation of just closing people's websites down if the site gets a certain amount of traffic. Not good.

        If you must go the route of free hosting, then Blogger is the best option. You can even use a custom domain name with Blogger.

          I agree that free hosting is not an option for any serious long term business - but since OP built some landing pages already uploading them to a free host is better than using blogger or any service like that.

          With free hosting you can find out how things work before moving to a paid hosting service.

          Just be aware that free hosting servers are very likely to be overloaded and to losing connection, connection time outs are frequent, sometimes connection to database is lost etc. Things that won't happen on a paid hosting or not on a decent one anyway.

          As for the other question, landing pages are not used for tracking, instead you will want to track the traffic you get to your landing page and beyond. Tracking services are used for that purpose. Google analytics is a basic one, just licke clicky and there are a lot more advanced tracking systems.

    If you want to upload your landing page to free hosting then you need free webhosting that allows FTP protocol. That's the protocol which you use to upload files to server. You can do this at Free Web Hosting Area - PHP 5.4, MySQL 5.5, FTP, Autoinstaller You can choose any subdomain and the subdomain ueuo.com seems fine. It seems to me you are a complete newbie and I suggest you read and learn and test things if you want to earn money.

    If you are afraid of investing money, then you should not enter this industry.
    Get a job instead that will keep you "secure".

    You might want to hire a web designer first before you do anything.

    A landing page is the page that people reach when clicking on a link to your website.

    It could be:

    1) A squeeze page

    2) A sales page

    3) A page full of information

    4) A blog

    5) etc.

    The very first page they reach after clicking on your site somewhere is your landing page.

    Alot of people use "squeeze page" and "landing page" intermittently as if they are the same thing. Technically their NOT the same thing, but more often than not, a landing page is some sort of lead capture page.

    A landing page is simply any web page that you direct traffic to.

    However, when most people on this and any marketing forum use the term "landing page", they are usually are referring to a specific type - which is an email squeeze page. Meaning, a page that is designed for the users to under his email address in order to receive something in return.

    So, since a landing page is merely a web page, you need hosting to get it up and running. On that subject...

    - I do not recommend free hosting because free hosting usually throttles your traffic BADLY. Free hosting is best used for unimportant things, not for business. However, if you just want to use free hosting to get used to uploading and tweaking your pages, that would be fine. Just make sure your free host allows FTP access. You can use FileZilla for your FTP program, which is free.

    - My top 2 favorite hosts are DreamHost.com and VamoHost.com - but you have to do your homework and choose your own. Web hosts are a dime a dozen but few have good support. Reading web hosting review blogs is pointless because they all have affiliate links that pay them $100 for your signup. Therefore, they are hard to trust. Be careful.

    I would not spend money on a landing page creator if you already have the skill to create effective, good pages that convert. ClickFunnels is too expensive anyway. A landing page should be clean in design, simple, to the point, with a good offer and call to action. Not much more to it.

    Besides, I bet if you type "free wordpress squeeze pages" or "free wordpress landing pages" in google, you will find a few you can download, even if you have to give your email. Most hosts have a script installer so installing wordpress is a breeze.

    If you don't understand all this, you are not ready for marketing anything yet. You will need to brush up on hosting and what is involved first.
