    Is there any free sites you can make your own webpage? If not is there a low cost
    site to make a custom webpage. If some one wants to get into java and webpage
    programming, where is a good start and what is needed. Again is there some freebies
    or do I have to pay or what?
    Thank you,

    There are several free hosts available but generally these are paid for by having poor performant servers or inundating your site with adverts. If you just want to experiment and learn then you are better off installing WampServer, Xamp or similar on your local machine and learning there. Then when you have learnt enough consider one of the cheaper hosts with shared hosting servers to get a website online.

    The only free host that I normally recommend to start with as more reliable & safer than many others is https://www.000webhost.com/
    They do have a very strong abuse policy & definitely no adult or malware sites there. I have found their support for a free service to be extremely good. They do offer a simple drag & drop web site builder

    What is WampServer, Xamp? If I create something on these two programs is it transferable to a web host. Is https://www.000webhost.com/ a good place to start for a beginner? Any other good
    beginner stuff out there?
    Thank you,

    They are local development environments where you can experiment. They are faster than a webhost as they are local. Anything you develop on a local environment you can transfer easily to a live site. All my development work is done in a local environment and only when complete is it transferred to a live webserver.
