Is there any alternative to Google Sites that permits custom domain hosting, and a modern selection of templates and GUI web editing tools? I still suggest to people to Google Sites, but the product has really stagnated lately and I'm wondering what else is out there.
Weebly is awesome. It has a wonderfully intuitive website creator.
I don't know if they have kept adding features at the same pace they did a year ago, but their applications is quite well-rounded and they have a lot of templates to choose from (+ the editor).
Hope this helps!
