    Where are the best sites to get my own personal free web site?

    I too am curious about this. Let me know what you find out.
    As of right now the only thing I know of is using WordPress and Google's Blogger website.

    Well this all depends on the type of hosting you are looking for. Honestly nothing in life is free but if by chance say you are a asp.net web developer then you would have to search for ASP.NET hosting services but to save you time if you are a developer or designer I believe the most adequate and biggest free hosting would be...nextmill.net 1GB Storage, 5GB monthly Transfer however you a. have to be a web designer / developer and your site would have to be tailored to that and they give you free hosting... so as long as you have your own registered domain name.

    Also on the .NET side of things you could turn to Somee.com for a free second tier or subdomain site such as yoursitename.somee.com and pick up 150MB of storage, 5GB monthly transfer through them... aspspider.net also provides .NET hosting, as does asphost4free.com.

    So first decision is what type of hosting are you looking for... .NET or PHP based one is Microsoft, the other is LINUX basically as far as the servers are concerned.

    Next you need to decide on the domain name e.g. First Tier = mysite.com or second tier = mysite.webhost.com.

    Then if you are not a web designer / developer you would want to look for a host that will provide you with a site builder software that would enable you to graphically build your site. But don't be suprised your site is basically going to be a informational site or a static site with no dynamic scripting or server side scripting such as ASP.NET or PHP which is what makes things happen and aides you in sending a email or calculating a form or storing data... it will be almost if not impossible to find completely free first tier domain name registration and hosting I am sorry to say.

    But if it is just a small to moderate sized business etc.. and your just looking to establish a web presence a free sub-domain account is more then sufficient and adequate for the purposes.

      If you are looking for a personal website or family website just to share data and images etc.. with friends and family then their are other services more suited for that such as photobucket which gives you sorta a personal page with image galleries

    If you want a free website, you won't likely be able to buy your own domain name, and will have to use a subdomain like yourwebsite.host.com instead of yourwebsite.com. It all kind of depends on what you plan on using your website for.

    Weebly
    A nice and easy interface that I used to create one of my first websites. If you plan on doing a lot of blogging though, I wouldn't recommend it, as it uses weird blocks to add in different types of media and can get a bit messy.

    Wix
    A lot like Weebly but I think it's easier for blogging. Be careful when you sign up, as your username will automatically become your subdomain name. For example, if you sign up using the username "username", your website will be www.username.wix.com

    Blogger
    If you want something simple and plan on doing a lot of blogging, Blogger is the way to go.

    Wordpress
    By far my favorite and the one I would recommend the most. It's simple and easy to use with a ton of capabilities through their extensive amount of plugins that developers make that you can use on your website.

    Before committing, it might just be best to create websites on all of them, see the one you like the most and then stop using or delete the others. Best of luck!

    I use weebly and I am totally satisfied with it. It is the easiest. You site can get published within seconds after you sign up anf that too all for free. You can of course upgrade if you need more features. On top of that, you can from adsense on your weebly site. You may read the following hub to help you decide on upgrading or not.
