I am using freewebs because of the free space only. Does your ISP give you any free web space.
I use "ewisoft" to do my site. It is a free program that has a built in ftp program. I have found it quite good and easy to use. Good for me because I dont know much about HTML. Look at my site and you can see how easy it is. This site didnt take long to do, although amaturish the content can be found.
There is a link on there to ewisoft if you want. The main thing is you dont get bogged down with adverts from the writer of the program. Hope I have helped you.
