well... this is where it can get kind of dirty.
Brinksters ace because you can get free hosting and they have advanced features (i.e. SQL Server and .NET)
However, for the free version, they dont make it overly easy for newbies to put a site up in 10 minutes.
Essentially, you need to write the html or asp page, save it as default.htm or default.asp and then upload it into your account.
For instance, open up notepad (start->programs-> accessories->notepad)
Type the following in (or paste it in)
<title>My freaky page</title>
<h1>O MY COW MONGER!</h1>
<p>my first page!</p>
click File->save as
then log into your brinkster account, click on file manager, and upload the default.htm file you made.
Herein ends the html lesson
