I agree with Sigurd 100%. Wordpress is my favorite piece of software available (and I've never not been able to figure out how to do X, no matter how complicated X may be). I've used it for:
I use bluehost.com, hosting as low as $6.95/month.
Multiple domains at no extra cost - so I've added multiple WordPress sites
to my personal bluehost account for use at Walden School at no cost.
Bluehost (as do other web hosts) has a "simplescript" to install WordPress -
setting up a new site (at a domain name you've registered) takes a few minutes.
Hosted on bluehost
go to wildwaldenites.us - a "gateway" site to wordpress sites -
I set up the "everest" site, others are being done by teams of 8th graders.
Am also using free hosting at wordpress.com
mrsmaire.wordpress.com (3rd grade teacher's site, set up with my help, now almost entirely updating on her own)
WordPress software is free, and there are lots of free plugins to add functions.
