$60 a month to run a website? Are you crazy?

So a woman from the yellow pages just came by and was telling me how I should promote my pet sitting business. She said I could make a website for $60 a month. Uh yeah that would be ok if I had some good money coming in, but I don't. I'll just stick with a free website.
I just had a webpage for my pet sitting business on a facebook page, tumblr blog and I used to have it up on msn pages and a aol webpage. But that closed down years ago.
I'm not new to the pet sitting world. I've been doing it for 19 years.
So does anyone know of any free websites I could use?
Oh and I have business cards that I have put out over the years. I just have neighbors and close friends that I pet sit for.
I know how to create my own website! I've done it in the past. What are some good sites for free?
Are people not reading this? I said I AM MAKING MY OWN WEBSITE! I JUST WANT TO KNOW A FREE SITE!!!

That fee is not unusual.
At the cheapest you could find someone to create a site for $400 flat fee.
You have no idea how easy it is to create your own website.
You could get a book from the bookstore such as
How to Create your own website
Spend a couple of hours reading it.
And have the site up and running.
It's not rocket science.

That's cheap !!!
Make your own website if you can't afford $60 and
advertise in local places where dog owners go
eg pet shops etc

If you're looking for a Free Website, you're not making your own website, you're hosting a page on another Website.

I've listed two good FREE WYSIWYG creators in the source section.

If you're going to make a website through HTML and all of that, you need someone to host it, such as GoDaddy.

I would recommend the Google sites, as there is lots of good online support available. You can also purchase a domain name and add it to a google site for around $8 a month. However you have to spend a fair amount of time building it.

no website is totally free -if you want your own domain name -

if you've been doing it for 19 yrs, what could a website do for you - that type of business is usually a word-of-mouth, put business cards at library and grocery store kind of business
