Google has so many facets now, I don’t know how I missed this one. It’s not that new, but its new to me.
Googlepages: anyone with a gmail account can have a website at google.
Here’s my test site. Its easy to use and great for people just wanting a small static page. Uploading photographs is easy and fast, and its all done in the web interface so you do not need to fuss with ftp and other esoteric things.
