3  More Info

The Wall Street Journal article 3/3/2009 "How to Create a Successful Web Site For Nothing (or Almost Nothing)" is a good overview article.  This article mentions Weebly, Yola, and Microsoft Small Office.

You can find tons more information by Googling the phrases "best free web pages" or "best inexpensive web pages" or a similar phrase.  You can also search for these topics on YouTube.

The website "Free Web Hosting" rates many hosts.  I cannot say how current or accurate this information is.

There is more information about the 4 hosts that I am somewhat familiar with on the "Examples" page: Weebly, Yola, Blogger (Google), & Microsoft Office Live Small Business.

   - Some of these may work with Windows-only (I personally use and recommend the Mac).
