Homepages will be hosted at gmailusername. googlepages.com, and each new page will automatically be submitted to Google's search engine.
The editing service offers an online visual tool that lets users build web pages. It has a 'what you see is what you get' interface, and requires no HTML editing skills.
The service is currently in beta and will only allow users to create individual pages. A website building tool is scheduled for a later launch, Google said on a help page for the service. Hosting space is capped at 100MB.
Google Page Creator requires a Gmail account, and supports Internet Explorer and Firefox. The service will accept only a limited number of users for now, and had run out of accounts when this story was posted.
Screenshots for the service are available on the Silicon Valley Sleuth blog.
