You are able to showcase work and create a portfolio for content that can be accessed by anyone worldwide with web access. The best web sites will increase in value when site visitors contribute. These web sites often contain interactive features, such as survey tools, message boards, and guestbooks, which let visitors add content, or provide feedback.
Features may include design templates, navigation buttons, banners, clipart, photo albums, guestbooks, maps, message boards, audio, music, survey tools, statistic counters, weather reports, web hosting, etc. Typically, free storage space is limited to 5-30 MB.
