Is there a free web hosting site that will allow for using your own html and css? Both google sites and webs want you to use their site builders/templates which is usless if you already have something made.
I don't know if geocities is still operating, but I used to have my site there and I could write and edit my own html and css anytime I wanted. They do (or at least they did) have a site-builder, but it wasn't a requirement.
I use freewebs for years. They allow you to use a custom css. They have a sitebuilder which is actually pretty easy and decent but they also allow you to use your own layout.
What I like is the easy to use tools and Freewebs have improved a huge lot compared to the past years.
What I dislike is the limited space for free member ships. And also for paid accounts they have some limits. I suggest you notn use pics from your pc but use the links from hosts like photobucket etc instead. This saves storage
Like vanassa said webs Is a good host and one of the most user friendly and widely known In my opinion, you can use custom pages of you own. I believe it requires some tweeking of the settings. Haven't been on webs in a long while but I was always satisfied with them.
I've used 110MB hosting as well which is also a good free host.
Here's a site that has a huge list of websites for free hosting. Free Web Hosting - Page 1
Just be careful and make sure you research the free web host. Some can be crafty and delete your website then replace it with ads if it gets a certain amount of hits.
Oh also misskitten geocities closed down a couple years ago
Try to avoid sites like Angelfire. They are so filled with spam and advertisements it isn't fun anymore. If you open a page you often get an annoying ad popping out of your screen. I use Webs since 2005 or 2006 or something and at first they were real crappy and terribly slow. But they have improved a huge lot. I bought my domain name there a couple of years ago and expanded it for 5 years plus 5 years of ID security and it was not even expensive at all. It makes you a premium member when you buy a domain name and you have unlimited pages which is handy if you have a lot of information or graphics. The bandwidth and storage should be a bit bigger thoguh but besides that I'm really happy with it
I use Webs. It's great, but the forums suck. So I decided to use ForuMotion. I was originally planning on having Wikia as a a wiki host. But creating the Wiki I have in mind is way to complicated unless I had a staff team completley dedicated to it.
