    A simple one page website

    A friend of mine wants to create a simple one page website for his own private practice that he just opened.

    And that the page would basically just talk about his practice, his background and perhaps also have his photo and so forth.

    And that he also just wants to start out with a free site for now. And then possibly go the ".com" route somewhere down the road.

    What advice would you give him on where he could start? Or what web tool or web hosts he could use, etc?

    Thanks!

    Have him use www.wix.com

    It's free and easy to use.

    No server-side scripting allowed (like PHP and databases).

    If he wants his own domain name, he can do that ... but that will cost some money.
    Otherwise, I think Wix comes up with a URL to view the website.

    I think these are examples of real sites that use Wix:

    I know you meant well but that seem to be more of a visual, pictures-oriented web tool. Whereas my friend just want a simple, one page web consisting mostly of texts and perhaps maybe just one photo. But thanks anyway.

    It's still pretty much perfect for his use case. Don't be so quick to dismiss.
