    I am now using a real simple solution, posterous.com. I have used bunches of different hosts, registrars, formats and html programs over the last 19 years, and have come to a point where simple works best for me. They handle the hosting and everything in one place, and you can post online as well as via e-mail. Mark Bittman uses it too. twgray.net is my posterous site. Also, although more complicated, squarespace.com is one of the most capable hosts/wysiwygs, and I have tomgraypottery.com on there. I'm sure you'll get a lot of responses..............

    I have tried squarespace a couple of times and like it. It is easy to set up, looks good but also a bit spendy and when I tinkered with it a couple of years ago, the commercial features were limited.

    I use WordPress for my sites, so I chose one that made it easier to upload and handle wordpress. Right now I use BlueHost. They are reasonably priced, easy for wordpress, and I think I can host 5 sites with my hosting. Happy so far.

    I haven't tried posterous.com, but I might check it out.

    Are you looking for free web a hosting, or willing to pay?
    I am using hostek.com. Very reliable and at 7.99 you have unlimited hosting.
