I am hoping to design a simple interactive web map using TileMill. I am then planning on uploading that map to Mapbox.com, where I understand I will be given an embed code to put on a website. My question is: will this mapbox map seamlessly embed onto a Wordpress or Wix website? Or should I use a different free website platform? Nota bene: I have little HTML editing experience.

I like Github for hosting static pages. It's free as long as you don't require private repos. The folder and URL structure is a little funky, but it works great and you can use your own domain name.

You can host pages from any repo by using a special branch, but the easiest way is to make a repo called username.github.io.

    can you explain how you would actually implement a map from mapbox in this? Also, I understand, that this would mean that you host the tiles with mapbox, and then use github pages for just the page with the HTML & JS for the Map. Commented Nov 3, 2014 at 8:28

    @DevdattaTengshe The OP asked about embedding a map, so I really didn't think past the iframe example here. Are you thinking of something that requires more than javascript and the MapBox API?
