If you're just starting out maybe you'd like to start with a free site to see if site building is for you. Perhaps you don't have the money to invest in something you're unsure of, maybe you're group or organization does not have the budget for a web site. There can be lots of reasons for not buying a domain
and subscribing to a web host.
For those that fit into this category there's free web sites available with free hosting that don't cost a dime.
Don't confuse a free web site with free hosting
, there is a big difference and I would recommend a free site over free hosting because of the reliability factor. Free hosting can be OK if you find the right host, but many free hosts have poor uptime and very crowded servers, making for very slow page loads. Free websites with free sitebuilders are much more reliable.
I've compiled a list of free websites / free site builders, with a descending order of my most recommended to least.
