Does anyone know a good web page host?
www.googlepages.com is another one -- free -- not specifically designed for teachers, but VERY easy to make a website with. It is setup as WYSIWYG.
I also use teacherweb. It is pretty easy to use and only costs $40 a year. This is the first year that I have had a website, and I am pretty excited about it. The website is not totally done, but I have a lot of information on there. Here's the link to mine if you want to take a look.
Are you just looking to do a web page for your classroom? If you don't want anything too fancy, you can very easily set up a page through scholastic...we are required to do it at my school, and it is easy to update and navigate.

I use Bravenet.com to host my website. It is free and easy to use. I've been happy with it.
www.mrs.uppman.com was created using them.
Jem, which plan did you get?
I have the $9.99 a month plan. This allows me unlimited pages for up to 25 different sites. I still have to buy the domains (I think they are about $7 each), but it's so great it doesn't matter. I have three pages currently, and could still make 22 more by only paying for the domain name!! And their templates are really great-they have a huge selection.

www.classjump.com and www.schoolrack.com are free and designed for teachers
I really like teacherweb, and that's what I use
bluehost is better - I paid 160 (?) for three years - unlimited websites, unlimited storage, and all scripts included. There are monthly and annual packages too, but I think this is currently the best host for the money.
This can change from year to year, though, so you might want to build your site locally!
Thanks for the schoolrack link. I made one for my class:
