If you're looking for ways to create a free website, Ucoz.com may be your solution.
Their Website Builder packages include hosting, with unlimited traffic and disk space, and they also give you a top level domain name free.
While I personally use and prefer WordPress to create my websites (not just my blogs), there are thousands of people every day searching for free website hosting or how to create a free website...
The downside to this free website host is that they run ads on the free accounts. If you don't mind the ads on your site, the free account should suit you fine. You can upgrade to an ad-free website for as little as $3.09 per month.
Note: The ads I've seen running on Ucoz sites I have viewed so far are text links in the footer. Not flashing banner ads, or anything.
They offer 250 templates to help you create your website. They also have a number of modules and widgets to help you set up things like a store, blog, polls, forum, portal, and more. Of course, you can also customize the template - or even design your own website template using their Visual and HTML editors.
Here is an example of a website I found on Ucoz at myrecipes.ucoz.com
Something like this is fine for a personal project or a hobby website, but you'll definitely want to upgrade to a paid option if you plan to create an online business or high-traffic website of any kind.
One interesting thing to note is that they automatically block new sites from being indexed in the major search engines for the first 30 days. This is to prevent abuse or spamming of the Ucoz system, and also gives you an opportunity to create your website and populate it with quality content before it gets indexed.
