setting up a web site 101
by dvautier / April 11, 2005 8:17 AM PDT

If you have a service provider very often they give you some web space so you can do your own stuff (but they don?t tell you about it). You really don?t have to spend money on a URL or anything like that (URL is a fancy name for your very own web address which you really don't need unless you are a pro). Anyway ask your provider about this.

But remember, very often the web tools your SP has are real clumsy, stupid and restrictive because they don?t want you doing a bunch of neat and wonderful things.

Most service providers have to allow you to use Frontpage or Dreamweaver extensions which are a few the most common web building tools.

If your SP does not allow web space as part of their service, then google around and see what you can find.

Also It?s a good idea to sign up at your local community college for a Frontpage course (if you can get in). You will learn lots of things--I mean lots.

Great hosting, very inexpensively without ads

They give you 2000MB of webspace, FP Extensions, CGI, PERL, hit counters, site management tools such as site stats, many email accounts, etc.

Starting price is $9.95 per month for the first four or six months (don't recall exactly) and about $20 per month after that....and it doesn't have to be paid on an annual basis like some sites.

There are no ads and no popups.....and they have a great starter kit that has templates already in place that you can use and change to your own needs. As long as what you will be uploading to the site doesn't constitute pirated programs or files or porn, they have unlimited access with no restrictions.

You can have a live chat, a forum, and forms (feedback, email, etc.) on your site with a click of a button. And the best thing of all is that they have three ways to get tech support including a live chat window 24/7......and I've used it with great success each time.

I really am impressed with their hosting services so much that I gave up on the idea of hosting my own site on my own server.

They give you the option, too, of transferring or getting your own domain name or giving you a subdomain that they assign to you so you don't even have to have a personal domain with them.

By having their own templates available you don't have to buy a website creating program such as Front Page or Dreamweaver, etc. until and unless you get real comfortable with having a ready-made site up and can play around with it a while by editing it to your likes and get the feel of what the site is like and want to try your hand at making your own.

or these
by Andrea B. / April 16, 2005 8:20 PM PDT

I've been using seanic.net for almost 3 years now - they offer packages for under $50 for the whole year - and that encluded the domain name. They do not have phone support, but I've had good experiences with their email support.

Excellent Web Hosting Sites
by mejerry / April 16, 2005 10:07 AM PDT

There are a whole lot of hosting sites out there that are very reputable. I have five that I use and recommend. I generally tend to spend my money where a particular site has some sort of promotion going on, like free for a whole year. These are just limited time promotional offers. Just make sure that the site is reputable.

If you'd like to check out my top 5 list visit my website www.tjataw.org/hosting.htm.

Good luck with your website. I'd be interested in seeing what you do with it.
