Strikingly is free if you use to create one site smaller than 5GB in size with a Strikingly domain (though you can customize it). An $8-per-month Limited plan ups the limit to 50GB and supports 2 sites, as well as the ability to connect a custom domain. The $16-per-month Pro plan supports 3 sites, unlimited bandwidth, custom domains, and more. The free version doesn't display ads on your site, which is a really nice touch, though it does feature Strikingly's branding. The Pro plan lets you remove that branding.
Strikingly limits you to creating a site using the building blocks it provides. It likely won't appeal to the super techie folks who want control over every aspect of their personal Web site. But for anyone with a Facebook account and a desire for a simple way to create a pretty Web site, Strikingly is worth a look.
