Are there any web sites out on the web that are completely free from start to finish? Also, i know nothing about web design so hopefully user friendly? Everything I find that looks free needs something else in the end. Money is tight with this economy right now. I want to make little quick free sites providing info to homeowners of their financing options to avoid foreclosure. And a way for them to contact me for more info. Thats it. Basically I offer a way to refi homeowners before they go under without income check, appraisal and credit. Im sick of searching for hours and coming up with nothing. So I thought I would come to the place that has always helped in the past. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on how much space you want.

Your ISP most likely offers you free web server space and website building tools. Check your member benefits on your ISP's site. Usually 10 - 20 MB per user is offered. However, the website address will be linked to your username (something like home.ISP.com/username). If you want to avoid linking it directly to your particular user name, most ISPs will allow 5 or more users per account. Simply register another username and use that webspace as your website. That's one way around it.

In the past research that I've done, completely free websites always had strings attached: you must post within their parameters and you must post advertisements that they provide. If you're not willing to do this, then completely free space is not for you. Geocities (for one) is a supplier of free space (15 MB), but it's not much more than your ISP provides (without the ads).

Edit: you may need to read the fine print on your ISP's site if you use that space. If what you're doing is for profit, you may not be able to use their space.

chugg - Personally, I would just setup the website on my home computer... You already pay for the internet, you already have the computer... Domain names are cheap, and sub-domain names can be free... Then all you have to do is make it... I like the cause, and if you wanted to come up with some sort of arrangement, I might do it for free... Also you could always get something like (god forsaken) dreamweaver, or something... I would prefur NVU personally...
