I started with a free site on Yahoo’s Geocities. As a matter of fact the index.html is still there drawing some click thrus to my new site.
It was 'ok" but not great. Ad's go with the free site and people left as soon as the ad's started showing.
I moved it to www.tripod.com. www.b4uclose.com
No HTML experience used or needed. Don't try to get to fancy. You want fast loading pages. About $15.00 a month for it.
Register your own domain name with a domain name registrar BEFORE you do anything. I did b4uclose.com with www.namesecure.com.
You get a free one with a tripod account, HOWEVER, they somehow legally control it and you MUST continue your account with them to keep using the name. That's where I got www.b4uclose.net.
I suggest you do a web search on "free website hosting" and try several of them with the free account or a bogus name. Explore, play with them, see if you like them, but don't put a lot of effort into them. After you've tried several, you'll have a better grounding to make a decision.
Here's just a few.
A listing of several is available at
Remember, get your own domain name first. I use www.namesecure.com
's redirect service to get www.b4uclose.com
to send people to my site on tripod at http://b4uclose.tripod.com.
Be aware. Some search engines don't like redirects.
Do some study on search engine optimization also.
I've put some other stuff on the board too. Search for ecrofutt and host or website.
