Well first you will need a domain name and hosting for same.

Do you use MSOffice and if so does it have Publisher or Front Page? If so you have what you need to design a site.

There are free ones out there as I have seen them.
Tripod comes to mind. Not sure if they are still about though. Loaded with adverts as I recall.

You need:

1) Site hosting
2) A domain or sub-domain
3) An authoring tool

1) Search these forums for "free webhosting", "free websites" etc
2) A domain name can be purchased from many registrars, usualy around $35.00 per year. Sub domains are usually free when used with a free website host
3) I recommend the great and free NVU (http://www.nvu.com/index.php)

There are a few things you need to consider BootyLicious. First, do you need a domain name or are you happy with a subdomain.yourwebhost.com? A domain name will cost you around $20 per year. You can probably find a free host, though paid hosting (you can find a list of hosts here (http://weblist.co.nz/webhosting.php)) is pretty cheap these days and personally I don't think trying to find a reliable free host is worth the effort.

To design the website you have three options. The first is to hand code using a text editor. HTML Dog (http://www.htmldog.com/) is a great site for beginners. Second, you can use a WYSIWYG editor which allows you to create a site graphically. The two most popular editors are Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe GoLive. While they are costly, there are free trials available (I'm not sure what the restrictions are). There are also some free editors such as Nvu which is mentioned above. The final option is a site builder (typically only applicable to paid hosting). This allows you to create your site online. Examples include RV SiteBuilder and SWsoft SiteBuilder.

www.1001megs.com has free web site hosting and NO ADS!. You'll end up with a URL looking like www.1001megs.com/members/username. You can get a free domain from www.freedomain.co.nr. This is how I got my site online.
