Last month I posted some tips on building better looking websites. Well here's another idea. Google has just recently launched a new service called Google Sites. And yes, it's FREE, although a premium version is also available.
The service can be used for chess clubs, team discussions (forget that clunky mailing list) or a state association website. It can even be good for private chess coaching since it's possible to limit access to certain users (e.g. paid up students).
There's more in TechCrunch who have also posted a video.
