    I have some pretty big events coming up in my personal life coming up over the next twelve months and want to set up a web site for about that duration to keep family and friends up to date with all that's going on with me.

    I know a blog sounds ideal but I really need more of a traditional website for this. Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions where I may find a good site to host me.

    I want something that's free, or cheap, with a nice short concise URL for my site, (custom if possible), and that has no ads/banners on the site that my visitors have to see. Can be pretty bare bones (don't need any HTML editors built in) but needs to be relatively reliable.

    Any help would be massively appreciated!


    ****Afterward****

    Thank you both for your input. Since I'm located in the US looks like I'm going to go with the latter suggestion. Seems like a wonderful outfit; exactly what I'm looking for.

    Instead of going for a free URL, I would suggest register a domain name like .info or .us for as low as $5 a year. Or a .com for $11. You can go to http://www.on4ever.net. That is where I register all my domains because I know the guys personally. The interface is quite convenient.

    Then host it with some free hosting providers like
    http://www.150m.com
    http://www.freeservers.com
    http://www.o-m.com

    These free hosting companies will give you their DNS. Specify them with your domain after it is registered and host it with them.

    However, paid hosting is also not expensive. I have been giving my clients hosting accounts for as low as $25 a year. You will surely find some one giving something similar or a bit low or high that will suffice your purpose.

    Contact my partner, Lindsey Millar, at [email protected]. She does web design, is very reasonable, and we can also host your site. Plus, her already reasonable prices are in Canadian dollars, so if you are in the U.S., then it is even more reasonable, :) She can get you up and running very quickly.

    A domain name with a .tk :eek:

    I think I would go for a .info for as low as US $ 5-6 instead of a .tk
