Re: Any free website builders?
Webhosts that offer CPanel often offer a free suite of compatible software that includes RVSiteBuilder, which "allows you to build a website within minutes using many of it's pre-made templates."
I can recommend Hawkhost as a host offering CPanel offering very competitive pricing and a great mix of features and support.
Their "most affordable" hosting plan is $40 a year. All shared hosting plans offer the same free software, but if you pay more you get more disk space and bandwidth.
If you are just starting, even if you don't go with Hawkhost, consider looking for a host offering CPanel. In many cases, if you later choose to move to a new host, with CPanel much of your basic account setup can be backed up at your old host and seamlessly restored at your new CPanel host. You can do the backup thru CPanel without having to ask your old host support's desk, so you don't have to get their cooperation to abandon them. Note that the CPanel backup may not include your website itself, but that may be available on a different backup.
And don't be fooled by hosts offering "unlimited" disk space and bandwidth. Nothing is "unlimited" at a fixed price. If you are tempted by one of these scams, take the time to read their "Terms of Service". You will generally find that the real definition of unlimited is very vague, and not in your favor.
