Can I download some free software (such as WebPlus basic version) and then upload the files to my host via ftp? I have downloaded it, and have started messing around with it, but the file format is their own (has a wpp extension) so I'm guessing you can't use it elsewhere.
Is there any free software out there that you can use with any host?
I know some hosting companies give you free software, but mine doesn't, and I would have to pay extra which I'm not keen on at the moment.
I need to create a site for information only, very simple, 3 or 4 pages.
(Serif) WebPlus is pretty good for free software, and yes you can upload the sites it generates anywhere. You don't upload the .wpp file though, you 'publish' it from inside WebPlus; you will need the FTP details for your hosting account.
Sorry for the delay, I was despairing from anybody replying, so double thanks to you.
That's exactly what I need to know. I am a total novice at this and didn't want to spend ages trying to create something that looked half-decent, and find out later that I couldn't use it. I'll see how it goes...
