    I need a good simple to use webspace provider to make a Brave Saga site until i can muster the cash for a good server to go pro. Anyone have suggestions?

    Oh and i have very little experience in making webpages, so any help would be nice.

    Thanks guys!

    Find the lowest priced ones and just pick one. They're all pretty much the same standard fare.

    Heh.

    Then pick something like Geocities or Angelfire, if they're still around. But don't expect a lot.

    God, I remember back in the day when GeoCities gave you a URL like http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Alley/6572/index.html.

    I have to hand it to them, though, they really did strive to make it feel like a community. Each "neighborhood" (TimesSquare, SoHo, etc) had a distinctive theme (games, clothes, relationships, etc), and when you selected the number for your website, you chose one of many houses displayed on a picture of a street.

    Those were the days. Frames, blink tags, useless Java applets, background MIDIs, and animated GIFs up the ass.

    Now sites like MySpace give us ready-made templates for spewing our nonsense. Ah, progress.

    Hey guys, would ya mind keeping it on topic.

    Id like to know whats out there, and what people use for their sites. Maybe list some recommended ones. Surely they cant all be the exact same.

    OMG witty image

    We recommended pretty much all there is. And they pretty much are all the same. You're not going to get many more recommendations, because everyone ponies up the 12 bucks to register a domain name and 9.99/month to host it these days.

    If you're not wanting to pay, then don't expect much.

    Oh, and don't forget, there's always :google

    I use Lunarpages. They've been pretty good to me, so far. Their forums are pretty helpfull, too.

    I use Dreamhost, I'm a noob so I'm not sure how good they really are, but they often have promo codes where you can get one there 100+ dollar hosting plans for about 20-25 tops.

    I used freehomepages.com. They used to give you 50 MB and only ads on the bottom of each page. But lately I get pop ups when I go there.

    I have one suggestion. You could try using Earthlink internet service. I know the highspeed plan gives you free webspace. And if your new to designing they use Trellix web site builder.
