There are others out there too that offer very reasonable services. Personally, I'd stay from those "freebie" sites that have very limited capability and they often include banner advs and other pop-up irritations that detract from your own site.
Another provider is Vista.com.
With some of their proprietary providers you can get your own domain name hosting and up to a 5 page site for just a couple hundred dollars a year. Our own major site also has an E-commerce component with real-time credit card processing...we pay about $1200 to $1500 a year for it and I can change, update anything in real time 24/7. Our other site, it a little slower to make changes on but can still do it in real time.
While a quality Website is not any any way a guarantee that the business is also quality or legit, some viewers may be suspicious of a business that promotes its products and services via a "freebie" site.
Just some thoughts...
P.S.: I'd stay away from sites that you have to work through an independent "webmaster" since there can be significant delays in updating your site and, they always charge a fee (usually monthly) to "maintain" your site...
