Lunar Pages
Provides free web sites to schools but may be only for advanced users as you will need to design your own web page.

NVU is a free (Open Source) program which is nearly as good as Dreamweaver. Let me repeat, it's absolutely free and easy to use.

For advanced users and advanced budgets, Dreamweaver is a terrific web design program which I use.
