You can enter the word "website" using a search engine such as Google. This will give you some places to investigate. My niece has a place on but, I don't know much about it. (I think it's free though) You'll just have to take a look to see if it's what you're interested in.

I found a webpage site from yahoo called GeoCities. Looks like it might be what you are looking for. I do not know how much html you know but the webspace is free. They have two more advanced versions but there is a charge for those. Considering this one myself. Hope this helps.

You can go to to select your web address ($40 per year? not certain) and they offer a free do-it-yourself web design. All you have to do it choose from a bunch of layouts, plug in your text and upload your photos and they do the rest for you.

I did that for my first website and it was so easy. The options are great can even get an email address for your company [email protected] for about $10-20 a year, I think.

Plus, you can change your text and photos on the website whenever you feel like it. Maybe have a "Cake Of The Month" photo on your home page to keep people coming back to your site?

I started out with a free website grom Geocities, but when I got to many hits, it would go down for about an hour.

I now use I have a free website through them & they have tons of beautiful templates. Many are customizable. I have a lot more space so I can download a LOT more pictures than on Geocities.

Once I get me permits and everything. I will get an actual pay website so I can have unlimited.

I just completed my website through Geocities. It was very simple using their Page Builder. I have a package deal through my dsl provider and it costs me about $25.00 a month for my domain name and the page builder access.

My domain name is:

I also do catering and have recently started with the cake decorating.
