Re: Free website templates

I think your best approach is probably to do a Google search for 'free website templates'.
You also need to consider what you are aiming to achieve - how often do you expect to update content? Will the pages be static? How much time are you prepared to commit to setting up and maintaining your site?
If changes are frequent you would most likely need to use a Content Management System such as WordPress or Joomla. Those need to run on a CGI enabled server with a database system such as MySQL. However Plusnet's ccgi server currently has MySQL version 4.1.11 which is insufficient for current versions of both those packages.
Using a 'fudge' documented elsewhere on this board it is possible to run the current default version of WordPress (3.4) on ccgi, but there might be problems with non-default themes.

Have a look at Open Source Web Design?
I used to grab from there before I moved to Drupal/Wordpress for various things.
