In fact, if all you're looking for is a website that displays a single, nicely styled webpage then's Dropbox solution is worth considering — although you'll have to know CSS to really make it shine.

The nifty thing about is that since it relies on Dropbox you can add files to your site from anywhere on pretty much any device that connects to the cloud storage service. allows you to create three websites for free.

Those are just three of the services that you can choose from. Google's Blogger is still alive and kicking and works very well.
