Web hosting options: Your
school most likely offers free webspace to students and
faculty. If you prefer to use an outside server (for example,
if you’re job-hunting outside of your institution), check
your Internet Service Provider, for example, Verizon offers
10 MB of web space. If you don’t have that option, a number
of other services can be bought or used for free.

Yahoo
Geocities

FreeWebsites (ads)

For fees – but without ads and with more
control:
