A website with personal user data

I have my web address (Go Daddy) & I started a web page (, but then I found out the website does not allow for personal user data. How can I make a website where people can register with my site and have their own page?

Re: website with personal data

That needs programming. I'd start with downloading and studying php and mysql. Then see if your host allows you to host your new site there.

You might be able to find a complete open source site somewhere that suites your needs or only needs minor adjustments. That's faster than programming yourself from scratch.

Thank you so much for that info, but I have no idea what any if that means. LOL I will start looking it up now, but can you break it down for a newbie or give me a specif site to look up?

Depending on your needs

there many existing content management systems that have such functionality, such as Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla, etc.

Those are self-hosted, so you will need to get a host that let's you install custom software and then I suggest you read about which one meets the requirements you have. You can install all three and test them out. All of them are also free to download and install.
