Do you remember Geocities? Yahoo shut down the popular Geocities program earlier this year. It’s the latest in a long line of great first time website building sites that have went the way of the Dodo bird. AOL no longer houses it’s Hometown and it seems that if you’re just starting to get into web design there aren’t any good free options left. I remember I setup my first website on Tripod, years ago. Now it seems that those days are all but gone… Or are they?

A new service called HPage.com has sprouted up to fill the void of all those previous sites that are gone. You can build a free website today with little to no experience at all.

I was asked to advertise the site and decided to give it a spin for myself to see what it would take. I went into this as I would have years ago, a total beginner. I was surprised at how professional a layout I could have in just minutes. Literally within an instant HPage will guide you through a painless and easy setup process and allow you to make a home page easily. Even if you have no HTML experience. There are tons of design choices. In fact, one of the things I loved about the service on my short trial was that it was easy as pie to set up the site and make it appear as though it was a special customization that I had worked hard on. Just check out this screen shot below of my sample HPage site that I whipped up in a couple of minutes.

It’s just that easy. And what’s even better is that your website gets a nice dedicated URL and isn’t some long diatribe of backslash, colon, slash this, slash that like so many beginner programs are. Oh and did I mention that it’s absolutely free?! All that appears on your website is a tiny advertisement. It’s a great program for beginners looking to try their hand at website building or seasoned vets looking for a free alternative, so if you’re thinking about dabbling in the web, check them out and build a free website today!
