I'll second the opinion of using Geocities/Yahoo. Long ago (2000) I started my website using a free Geocities account. By 2002 I had decided to purchase a domain name (www.seafarer-research-center.com
) through Geocities, which costs a mere $11/month for hosting. I hand-wrote all the HTML, which isn't that hard to do if you keep the website somewhat basic. Definitely avoid using FrontPage!
You could also use MySpace.... Extremely easy to use and no coding ability needed. I'm thinking about going this route when I go cruising...
