which is highlighted in red:

ad, which must achieve 0.25% (1 in 400 visitors) click-through rate. They
are hosting 1 million sites already...
30MB space, sub-domains only. No catch.
to ten email address for your Sub Domain
This site gives you up yo 50 meg of free space and provides you
with a basic page editor, an advanced page editor, or uploading of files via ftp.
Numerous add-ons. The only condition is that there will be pop-up
advertising banners whenever your site is viewed. In my browsing experience,
that means at leats two popups when someone visits (2 pop-ups too many?)
No Banner Ads. The catch is that they send you an email
everyday with ads in it. (Doesn't mean you have to read it....). Get 20
MB of hosting with yourdomain.com, plus free email and forwarding. CGI and Front
Page are extra. Required: Buy a domain name for $18, or
pay $35 to use your own.
They are an online community that gives you the opportunity to

site in minutes. You have the choice of using their Home Builder, File Manager
or FTP to create your pages, with numerous add-ons available (guestbook etc).

will know that you are using a free service, not so great for credibility. You
get a free webpage with 15 megabytes of space, subdirectories to help you organize
your files, a full set of tools, loads of add-ons and money making schemes. A
little "ad-square" automatically pops up. This is the most unobtrusive
advertising around. Max of 3GB of traffic per month.

For businesses only (they say).
They provide 20MB of free space for your website and 1GB of traffic, which they
provide an easy step by step process for building your homepage. You can choose
whether to use many pop-ups or an embedded advertisement.
Lots of add-ons, plus a file-storage facility.
Their unique online webpage authoring system helps you generate your own webpages

only basic page building facilities, hoping that you will pay for the premium
