I have made blogs with blogger & find I can do that ok ( I think !) is there any thing simular for making a free website as I am not very clever doing that kind of thing .
If you don't know a lot about HTML, try Weebly or Blinkweb. Both have fairly decent WYSIWYG editors.
If you're good with HTML, you can try Webs (Formally known as Freewebs).
Take it to the next level and start your own blog. That way you have complete control on the content and the monetization of the site, meaning you make all the money.
Go to a webhosting site like godaddy, hostgator or powerweb and pay for a hosting account. Choose your domain name and get the host to set the blog up for you.
Once done the blog is all yours to do with what you want.
use wordpress,it's the best,easy to use cms out there.if you can't afford the cost of domain and hosting,you can use free domain (like .co.cc, .co.tv, .tk, .uni.cc) and free hosting (like byethost,sitefrost)
Note: sitefrost will give you free cpanel hosting with full features (have fantastico instant script installer-no need to upload wordpress,just click and install).but you have to post some posts in their forum to get your hosting.they have plan starting from 2 posts per month. Really great service,i have two sites with them.
I suggest u stick with blogger caz it has high rank and it's user friendly also.
U also have other services like typepad.
But i think it is best way to make a site
It depends how much time you have to devote to your website and it also depends on what you want to do with it.
So really you did not give us enough information.
One suggestion I have for you is to dig deeper into your 'blogger' account.(you only think you got it done)
Doing that will allow you to learn 'html' if you don't know it too well.
You can also , if you learn the tricks, turn your 'blogger' blog into a normal looking (nearly) website.
I would also be bold enough to say that HubPages, is a good a platform I have seen for people that are not inclined to get involved in 'code'.
I think Weebly is a good option. I recently created my blogs on it.
The interface makes it easy to use and there are pretty good features to add.
Do you mean a Free Parking site where you can set up a tent?
You sure Are Brave Oz.... Do you know how clever you have to be to do this????
There are lots of options... BUT if you use them you concede on your ability to control your site and content. Potentially a problem if you are thinking longer term. You are far better off buying your own site and developing it yourself. It is not expensive or hard to do. Just:
Google "The Internet Bloke."
And you will come up with Eric Graudin's Tassi site. Excellent advice here and all the tools and help you need. And a Good Bloke as well.
Use wordpress. You can use it as just a blog or as a full website. Very easy to use. Get your own domain name, your own hosting and upload wordpress. You'll have a site in 5 minutes.
This week I created my first* "niche" blog using the Wordpress Heatmap theme, hosted on my own domain. You're dead right - it wasn't nearly as hard as I expected to get things up and running. Knowing a bit of HTML definitely helped though - a LOT.
*possibly only - depends how it goes.
I have a few simple free websites on
You could use a site builder to create your own free website here http://www.hpage.com
Microsoft Office Live small business will give you the free hosting and tools that you need.
google sites are also simple (never used them personally thought)
Blogger ofcourse as it offers many widget tools which makes us easy building websites. I use may free websites but found blogger most user friendly.
you can use freeindianhosting.com for creating a new websit for free, they also provide free templates.
First thing is, what are you going to use your website for?
The cost of hosting changes with many factors.
What programs will run server-side, what you can and cannot plug into your site and how to build it are all factors where you need to know where you are going to start and finish, then ensure your hosting can cover all of it.
I started a weebly blog just to see if I can use it for backlinks. It's very easy. Everything seems to be point and drag and assembling units.
you can make a perfectly good site with blogger. Trust me it works pretty good. Take away the favicon add pages remove the navbar get a domain and there you have it
Forget Blogger if you're serious. Get your own domain, and load Wordpress. That's the only way to go.
Forget free, please.
Ha, funny you should ask! I just signed up to HubPages and created a "hub" about how to make a web page for free. I cover how to plan your site, find the right hosting provider (for free!) and how to install Wordpress and then promote your pages.
You might find it useful, I don't think I can post a link to it here, just search for "make a web page for free" and you'll find it!
It's good that you started with Blogger, because it's so easy to get lost when trying to make your own website... you spend hours finding the right theme, and then if you want to do the coding for it you spend hours trying to get it working on IE!!! (been there too many times)
So concentrating on the content using a system like Blogger is great.
But, as other people have mentioned, having control over your website brings about many advantages, such as being able to download and install plugins (and there are heaps of great ones for Wordpress) plus the ability to change your theme to whatever you like... and then there's making money from your website which is a whole new kettle of fish.
Hope this helps in figuring out what to do next... the free website builders online can be ok... but it's not such a steep learning curve to doing it all yourself

I know that several hubbers here set up separate web sites under domain names they own themselves. I would appreciate any feedback or advice on the best way to do this especially for people (like me) who aren't total techies but do have basic web experience. Which web hosting services do you...

First of all, I want to say that I am not considering leaving Hubpages. However, I am seriously considering starting my own website/blog, in addition to keeping my HubPage account. So, here's my understanding on how to go about starting my own site, bear in mind I don't know a lot about it: Buy and...

I need serious help! I am taking a web design class and my final project -- due in TWO weeks -- is my website, done through Dreamweaver. I do NOT want a free site. I plan to use the site so want a good business site. I am looking for dependability and a site that is easy for...

I saw some articles about Google rebranding Blogger in the coming weeks. What affect will this have on current blogs. When people say, it's 'best to have own blog' what exactly do they mean by this? Have a domain name? Use Wordpress?
