Hi one and all,
Please can anyone help my nephew? He needs to build a website and I know there are some places on the net that you can build free websites. Please can you tell me of any you have used and if you would recommend them as being reliable, if so what is the address. I'd hate Andrew to make a website for it to not work well or go ofline as it's for part of his school work and he needs to get one made very soon.
I think that webs.com may be ok for him ,it's free and very easy to use. Hope this helps,
I just set up my website through them. I remember when I first joined this forum you were kind enough to give me encouragement to have a go at setting up my own website so a big thanks to you Jane

You can have:
You may pick any two out of three.
A simple way to say it is, "You get what you pay for." ;)
Yes, there are free website hosts out there but they are going to plaster your pages with ads. Also, because it's free, you aren't guaranteed 100% uptime, nor do they offer help or service in case you have trouble. Finally, you aren't going to have your own domain name. You'll end up with something like, "www.freewebhost.com/users/yourusername/index.html" Not easy for people to type and remember.
If you go to www.godaddy.com or www.fatcow.com you can pay about $5.00 per month. Because you are paid, you get help and you can have your own domain name. They offer a whole lot more features than the free web hosts.
Another thing to think about...
You might already have web hosting included in the price that you pay your ISP for internet access every month.
Many ISPs give you free space to make your own website. Usually, it's on the same terms of many of the other free web hosts... mimimal service, few features, no domain name, etc... but you won't have to jump through hoops to get your account set up. It already is set up.
Go to to the log in screen at your ISP's website and see if they don't have it for you. It's usually listed in the FAQ.
Thanks for the info so far.
Us Bears, this is just for a school project, so it doesn't matter about adds. My nephew just wants to build a quick, but good looking free website, so he can pass his assignment.
See you at Stratford Clare...I presume you are going.
I use Yola http://www.yola.com/ppc.php?gclid=CJam4 … agodWhx3WA It is free, no adds, super easy, no trouble. I did pay for my domain name through godaddy
Here is a free google web site design that I have been playing with.
I see what you're saying. You don't want to spend a lot of money on a school project.
Still, don't forget your internet service provider.
Many ISPs offer free personal webspace. (Well, it's not actually free because you have to pay for internet service to get it but it is free as in "no extra charge besides what you already pay.")

Check your ISP to see what they offer. You might be pleasantly surprised.
