    I just want to create a simple website where I can speak my mind and have fun. I don't care about domains. I don't want domains. I just want a simple site to just talk and enjoy. Anyone know a place to create a free website or if I were to use a domain, anyone know where I can get one free without pay? I saw weebly and all these weird domains but I did not like very much cuz they costed money.

    There's http://webs.com but I think the space they give you is pretty tight.

    google sites? rather basic, but that sounds like what you want.

    although, if you just want a blog, the is wordpress, blogger, live journal, et al

    weebly is free and so is webs. also you can make a co.cc domain and use that to directly link to your weebly account (this is what i do for one of my sites)

    Freehostia is a pretty good free hosting service, I host my webspace there (my domains are hired somewhere else).

    On a sidenote, can someone suggest a guide/site to creating snappier looking (web 2.0 but argh i hate terms like that) design for a webpage? I have access to Dreamweaver, and I have forgotten any HTML or Java I once knew years ago.

    I'd like to have my site integrated with Twitter, and also allow RSS feeds to pickup on new posts.

    web 2.0 style websites require a CMS (content management system) running on a webserver with PHP and MYSQL, features you only find in paid hosting. having said that hosting with that can be found for as little as £1 a month

    Many many many free web hosts have PHP and MySQL, infact pretty much anything not called "Freewebs" would have these features.

    I use byethost as far as free hosts go. They have a script installer (for things like WordPress or CMS)
