Information Technology Resources

by Jayaram V

Nowadays you do not require much knowledge or skills to build a website and host it for free. Many web hosting companies offer online Site Builders with which you can create an impressive website in a short time. If you have a little knowledge of html, you can use many html editors to build one.

Microsoft is currently offering Web Expression, which is a very intuitive and user-friendly website builder. It comes with some basic templates. You can also search on Google for free website templates or website builders and use them. Once you have a website, you can find a free web hosting service to host your website. You can use Google to look for a useful free webhost or find them from one of the following links we have provided here.

Following are some of the Free Web hosting Services verified and found to be still functional. Many from the original list compiled in the early 2000's have disappeared. It is still possible that some of these companies might also cease providing free web hosting services. So if a link disappoints you, please use another.
