Fiverr is one of the most popular freelancing websites and it was launched in 2010 to help companies to hire people and freelancers to find the best freelancing jobs and within 2 years almost 1.3 million gigs were hosted by Fiverr.
By the way, gigs are the services freelancers offer to companies and entrepreneurs. It is the best site if you are a freelancer or you want to hire freelancers.

If you think that freelancing is just for side hustle then take a look at this How these three people make 6 figures a year in USD on Fiverr and if you will convert it in INR then it will be 70 to 75 Lakhs which is a lot more than an average Indian Salary.

Upwork is also a very Famous and great website for freelancers and they have 12 Million Registered Freelancers and 5 Million, this company was rebranded as Upwork in 2015 before that they were 2 brands Elance and oDesk which came together in 2015 and now it is one of the biggest Freelancing websites in the world
The only problem with upwork.com is they charge around 5 to 20 Percent of Fees and I think 20 percent is a huge commission or fees, but you can get a lot of projects from upwork.com, SO you should surely check out Upwork.com

- If your Employer likes your bid then he well give you the project
People per Hour is also one of the good Freelancing websites and it’s like a Mix of Fiverr and Upwork.com and which is a very good thing according to me.

So if you are confident about your skills and if you are expert in your field then you can get a lot of good projects on toptal.com.
This website is similar to Upwork and freelancer.com, but the number of Employers are increasing and the fees are also very less than other platforms they just take 9 Percent commission or fees from your income and on freelancer, it is 10 percent and on Upwork it is about 5 to 20 percent.
