A while ago I came across a backup of the files that made up my very first website from 1997, when I was working at CERN. I had been inspired to learn some HTML for a couple of reasons:
1) I was working at the birthplace of the World Wide Web
2) I had some time to kill on the night shift.
So I fired up Netscape Communicator 4 and started experimenting. I was very proud of my creation at the time, although to be honest I thought there was a little more of it.
The site has had a couple of homes over the years, from cern.ch to Geocities, but each time the host provider either reclaimed the space or closed down.
Now Google has a way of hosting a (simple) website from Google Drive, which you will have if you have a Google account. It’s pretty straight forward and perfect for this use case (and free…)
