How Much a Website Costs depends
A Free Website may Cost you Everything !
A free website does not require you to Register a Domain Name nor to Pay for Web Hosting. You are given a Subdomain or a Directory (Folder) on the Registered Domain Owner`s Website. You then invest your time creating Content and posting it on their website. This helps draw traffic to their website building their PageRank and future traffic. They then select and place relevant Sponsor Advertisements around your content. These ad placements are their main source of income from free website hosting. All free websites cost you the freedom to accept and display paid advertising.
Free webspace that is not a domain is a good place for you to experiment and setup small feeder websites that direct traffic over to your own Website.
If their Business fails, and the Website disappears, so does your Content. Even if you know ahead of time, you can not move your content intact since you are not the Registered Owner.
