They all have a catch, which is highlighted in red:

Angel Fire
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, 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.

Fortune City
They are an online community that gives you the opportunity to move into a "home" and immediately receive 100MB of free web space and a free email address. Once you have moved in you will be able to set up your web 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). Banner at top of each page, plus pop-ups.

Geocities is the best known provider of free homepages on the internet. Consequently everyone 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.

50MB space, 500MB bandwidth. Banner ad "above the fold". 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 in minutes for free! No catch, no ads. They offer only basic page building facilities, hoping that you will pay for the premium down the track. Perfect for beginners.
