I wonder what they are up to this time.

Need hosting?

Visit - http://yourgmailusername.googlepages.com

obviously replace "yourgmailusername" with your gmail username onec you get the website up.

Anyway, I wonder how much bandwidth and space they provide Razz

It looks like Blogger, which is also owned by Google.

I think it looks like a nice way to get the common folk to make their own personal web page (One that isn't littered with ads, and terribly tacky backgrounds), but I dont think I'd ever have to use it. This seems to be aimed at the people who have never made their own websites.

Maybe it will be a nice gateway to everyone having a personal site.

Wow cool

But we have frihost out here and frihost is too good
And the most of it is that Frihost is really

FREE
Yeah!! free
Jack_Hammer
I've signed up for it just to see what it's like, I don't really know what it is or what it is like, but from what people are saying it doesn't sound great.

it's a beta testing Razz

SMCentral

So, it's like another free hosting,GREAT, at last, google is giving spaces

seen that this morning! It does indeed seem aimed at the more general computer user. Put my email addy in the waiting list thing anyway, just wanna see what its like. Should be good!

This service is basically for Newbies who are not well versed in web designing.

In a fashion remarkably similar to Powerpoint, users can pick from a number of themes (or change them on the go) and text layouts. It makes use of a rather clever What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor, so users don't have to face the prospect of editing HTML (but the option exists). Best of all, in true ground breaking fashion, Google lets you have 100MB of space for free, and it doesn't even put ads on your homepage.

And I dont think there is any bandwidth limit.

As I said earlier, this service is best for the newbies. I am better hosted by Frihost Smile

Though I have signed up just to see what the service is like and its great. My friends are now not able to sign up as they are not taking any more accounts.

I thinnk this is more of a geocities type website builder, i dont think they will have cpanel and php, mysql, perl, and support for all that other hard to find stuff...but who knows, they might start it soon...
nilsmo
It's nice that they give you 100MB for storage and that is it very fast and easy to set up a web page. This is a great new Google product, but FriHost is way better Smile

True. You can never guess what Google does Smile

That should be posted in qote tags.

But a lot of us got the same message. Me and daniel15 mentioned it.

I just went there and setup a page....the whole thing is really quite lame and not worth the time nor effort.

Frihost is a much better deal. Here you can control your own space and write your own html. The editor at Google has got to the worst visual editor I have ever seen. You can hardly even call it a "Beta"....it' looks as tho it's still in the Alpha stage.

Bad, awful, ugly & nasty...and those are the good features Sad

Man, google is going all out. The most powerful and popular search engine, Google Earth, Froogle, Gmail with over 2.6 GB of space, Google Chat, and now Google Pages. This is awesome. I love google. I especially love gmail cause its free, huge space, and easy to use. I brag about 2.6 Gigs, but I only use like 2 megs. 'sall good though.

Viva La GOOGLE!

If you have a gmail account, you can use it there to get hosting as well....
I think that it is nice for people wo don't need much.
We should wait to what it will evolve, and then...
What if, all the sudden it says" 500MB, 10GB bandwidth, PHP,PERL,unlimited all,NO ADVERTISEMENTS"....
?what would you do?

You forgot the "instant accept" part.

Well, I can imagine what will happen to free webhosts ;o.
Tasukii
I don't really like it, maybe Im wrong but there is only a WYSIWYG editor right? And the templates are pretty lame.
However it's good for youngs and without experience bloggers.
sonam
It is true, this is good hosting for newbies. I am fun of FTPs, and I would like to upload files with FTP. I dont accept enything else! Laughing

Maybe in future they will give more options and better WYSIWYG editor, Rolling Eyes but now this is not for me.

cool, they're taking over the www

From what I gather, Google is trying to compete with yahoo on everything and that probably one of the thing they had added along with GMail Talk and everything else that I am starting to see. Laughing

mmmmmmm im undecided it does look like google are trying to compete With yahoo though

Not true they have google earth. But i do agree that they are taking everything.
nilsmo
Part of the reason that you Google Page Creator accounts are limited is because half a million slashdot readers were exposed to it and most probably created an account. Such a shame that you have to use a mobile phone to get some code... Sad

@heady233:
No other company had offered searchable news from many news sites in Google quality; no other company had offered free maps in Google's resolution; no other company had scanned many, many old books and put them in a freely searchable database; no other company had come up with the idea to make such a huge image search; no other company...

wow, google rock!

I would be nice if you could use the space from your gmail account with the hosting. I would definitely use Google's hosting if they provided cpanel, mysql, php, and ruby on rails (something FRIHOST should have)
smalls
I think this could get rid of all the people that just post on frishot to get their points and get free hosting. Maybe once there's another really good free hosting service out there, frihost will be left with only the realy forum posters.

I'm sure there will be some people that hates google alot and think google will invade their privacy by looking at their website or whatever. So, Frihost isn't that doomed yet Wink.
windval
it is very funny

i like this~~~

thanks for your sharing~~
thiamshui
it's a good start.. hope they will add more features such as PHP, mySQL, etc etc.. den for sure it will be a hit.. Laughing
