Google today launched Google page creator service where you can create small web sites (with 100 MB space, you can get fairly big though).
It is an interactive builder, quite simple and does not require knowledge of HTML or FTP or any similar geek stuff. They have a large number of designs and layouts, so you can get fairly unique. The login is the same as your Gmail ID, so this becomes the complete solution including the web site and email. If you don’t like the URL (something like http://GMAILID.googlepages.com, you can buy a domain and redirect the domain to this page.
