    Just search for free web templates on google or something, I have no direct links. Website hosting, Go Daddy is awesome and cheap. To upload files to your websites "FTP", I use Smart FTP, it's simple, easy and free. My links aren't working for some reason
    Sir douchebag...

    Good website hosting company : 1 and 1 I hear they are pretty good. Uploading program : Filezilla, once you buy the hosting the company will give you the ftp info.

    Well to tell you the truth I made a site myself and so did my clan leader and it's pretty darn good (well his is anyway). His site is http://hs.spruz.com/main.asp and we both used www.spruz.com for our site. I'm not sure but in one of your questions I think you're asking if you should use a PC or a Mac, and I say PC because most buseniss companies use them since they have more available programs. I realy hope this helps you.

    Fixed it for you. You need to add "http:// before www before every link or else it won't work.

    1. I've looked for good free templates before and the one's I came across are not that impressive. I use Photoshop CS3 to make my custom templates and graphics, there's alot more fexibility when you can choose what you want the site to look like. 2. Godaddy is good for Domain names and website hosting. 3. FlashFXP is good but you have to pay for it. If your looking for something free get SmartFTP. 4. Advertising is tough, you could advertise throught banners on other websites but that can get expensive. 5. Programs: - Microsoft Frontpage (The site only looks good in Internet Explorer and it adds a little too much extra uneeded code) - Abobe Dreamweaver CS3, it's really exspensive ($400) but if thats the field you may want to pursue it will be worth it.

    Freewebs? I don't know that many hosting sites, domain, etc. So I will leave it up to people who know their stuff.

    1. Depends on what you mean by templates. If you're looking for a pre-designed page, then no. You really should make your own. 2. Honestly, they're all about the same, now. GoDaddy, as mentioned, is good and it's are the most popular registrar. 3. An FTP client. Mozilla made Filezilla, therefore it's the best. :) 4. Google Ads? Why would you do that for a family website? Is it a business? 5. Notepad++. Don't use those WYSIWYG editors, like Dreamweaver. They don't produce good results and they'll make you dependant on graphical programs. From what I can understand, you're looking to create a static web page, meaning that you will make it once and it will not change. If you want something dynamic, it will become much more complicated.
