    Buy a domain from Yahoo Domain Services, I think they are running a promotion to get a domain for $2.99(US) for the first year. Then, find either a cheap or free web host to point the new domain to. Other than that, I do not know of anything like that with a customizable url.

    Hope this helps.

    If Its Only temporary, you'll be able to use your computer to run the website, i recommend Wamp, as it comes with apache, php5 and mysql.
    you can get a free subdomain off

    then you just have to Make The website.

    You would have to ask Yahoo! that, you can probably find out in their registration pages somewhere.

    You could go to http://smallbusiness.yahoo.com/domains and look around there. Not sure all that's involved, but I have registered quite a few domains there. The most recent one I purchased was only $2.99 (US) because of some special promotion they were running. You might be lucky enough to grab one.

    Hope this helps.

    I've search for more webHosting sites and I found brinkster.com. I thought yahoo had a $2.99(US) offer but it seems $9+ offer left for their client.

    Another thing you could go with is registering your domain through your webhost. Sometimes they give out deals if you purchase a year's worth of hosting, you get the domain name free. Plus, there are tons of other companies out there that you could register/host with. Just do a Google search for "Webhosting and Domain Name Registration".

    Hope this helps.
