Free Web Hosts with Site Builders or Web Templates
If you are new to creating your website, or if you just want to create a website and get online quickly, these web hosts provide you an easy way to build your website without having to learn HTML or download a web editor. Most of these sites allow you to create your website using their free online site builders or free web templates, and customize the appearance of your web site to your liking. Some of them even provide you with free offline site builders that you can use to create your website while not connected to the Internet. Best of all, the web hosting providers listed here give you these services free, along with your free web hosting account.

Update: since free web hosts close with great frequency, the list below might be empty by the time you read this. I update the page from time to time with new ones, but sometimes by the time I find out about them and check them out, they have already closed. An alternative is to look at the web hosts on the Free Blog Hosts page, which may serve your needs, since blog hosts often come with a set of pre-made designs that you can choose.

You have to upload your pages using their online file manager. You can also add things like a guestbook, counter, etc to your web page. The service is ad-supported. [Update (24 April 2009): It looks like It looks like Geocities is closing down on some unspecified date in 2009. They are no longer accepting new signups but are pointing people to their commercial arm, Yahoo! Web Hosting. If you are currently hosted on GeoCities, and need a guide to help you move to a new web host, see the tutorial How to Transfer / Move Your Website from GeoCities.] [Update (October 2009): Geocities has now closed.]
