There are some free services to set up websites. What type of site are you looking to create? Will it be a forum, or just a blog?

Assuming that you just want something for free, and not for money-making purposes, then Forumotion is the best free host for beginners. :)

I started filling out something on www.Createaform.com & don't know if I make my site with them it'll be on Createaform.com or be its own site? I'll try have a look at the link you gave me! thanks :)

On free hosts, your forum will have a subdomain, for example:

http://frankie.createaforum.com

Or

http://frankie.forumotion.com

On free hosts, you can buy "credits" which you can use to buy certain extra features for your forum or remove advertising

I still think you should go with Forumotion. You'll have a better choice of which software to use for your forum, and the admin panel is the easiest I've ever used.

You'd have to register a proper domain name and link it to your forum, but you'd have to pay regularly.
