Free Web Sites!!!!!!
Good web design mandates you suck your audience in with "free stuff", so I'm going to fulfill my mandate by telling you how to get free web space (you send me money). And I'm going to kill 2 birds with 1 stone since I've been also asked how to design a web page. These free sites all provide some web page building software with lots of templates for you to choose from. You just type in the categories, add text or upload some pictures and you have a website. They won't be as great as this one, but you can try!
The one hitch is that all of these sites display some sort of advertising, some more intrusive than others. There are limits on web space but most of them are very generous with the megabytes. I've listed the sites that I have staked out in cyberspace. There were ones that had relatively hassle-free registration and seem to work well. Finally, be sure to check out the superstore of free stuff on the web: Freesite.com. They keep up-to-date on all of the free websites and software available.
My favorite Free Site Providers:
This is the service hosting this site. Very reliable and the floating box advertisement is minimally intrusive (I think). Excellent web page building tools.
Used to be pretty good but now has creepy ads at the top of each page. But I consider it a close second to Tripod.
This is a new one I found that is interesting given that its web building tools seem to be pretty unique. They are java based so they can be very slow but there are lots of options to choose from. It is geared for evil PC people, even offering a downloadable off-line editing program. However, there is an "express" version (on-line only) for us superior macintosh beings. Give it a try.
