Last night, I had a web dilemma: I wanted to host one web page, but not on any of the servers I currently have access to, since this would be content posted on behalf of a different organization. Because this one static page only needs to be active for a couple months, after which I can delete it, I was not inclined to buy server space at any cost.
Thanks to a well-timed Instant Message from Ron DuPlain, I saw the light: Google Pages (http://pages.google.com). This is Google’s answer to free static web hosting, accessed through your Google account. It provides:
- A nice collection of style sheets to use as templates
- A quick and dirty (web-based) visual web page editor (simple, yet effective)
- A simple upload function if you want to use images or roll your own HTML
