Question Best option for a totally free single-page website?

Has anyone created a single page website for free, including the page editor and hosting ?

I'm not bothered about a branded domain and (discreet) advertising, but would want the site to have a decent chance of showing up on google searches.

Any advice/experience ? These 3 look to be in the running, with WIX being the only one I've heard of:

Hmmm ... was about to signup with WIX, when I noticed their poor domain naming format (free tier) ! >> username.wixsite.com/siteaddress

ONEPAGE looks to be a newish Dutch company and offers >> xxxx.onepage.website

whereas pagexl has been going for a while (2005, French software house) and offers >> xxxx.pagexl.com

GitHub pages?

(Might not be friendly enough though.)

^ This as long as the site/page isn't too complex. Sites can uses drag and drop templates. It can do stuff more complex, but it's then down to you to write the html.
Free if you have a google account already.

Yes, thanks guys. Google sites looks perfect ... so much better than when I last checked it out (years ago?)

The one thing I'm not 100% clear on is how easy it might be for someone to trace the published page back to the Gmail account. From a quick test, it *seems* to be anonymous, but this will be for an activism-style page (nothing illegal) that I wouldn't want to be connected to.

But then, I suppose I can setup a new Gmail account specifically for the purpose, and work in a Private Firefox window ...

Yeah, just set up a new account. You never know you might need some kind of contact for the campaign anyway - savetherhino@
