I am looking for a place to start a web site again. I want it free, (well maybe a cheap yearly subscription) easy(I don't want to have to relearn HTML code again) and lots of room. And not to harsh restrictions as to content. No XXX or crap like that of course.

for hosting, ipage.com is decent.

i believe they have a "website builder", but don't remember. i use dream weaver to build sites.

what are you trying to do with the site?

Dunno if that's what you're looking for, or the basic software for creating it without alot of hand coding. You gonna host it yourself?

I keep buying these radios and I want to start post them on a permanent site.

And any other goofy things like family or friends or etc.

Tony, what do you mean by hosting it myself?

I would like to get a domain name and go from there. I haven't built a web site since 1996. It was about the unit I was in in the Army. Here is where it is now. Another guy took it over when I got sick.

Bill,
I meant that if you have an appropriate connection, you can set up a webpage to be served on your own machine. It is not necessary to have a static IP address, or even own your own domain to do it. I use a dynamic aliasing service to host one. This requires a small client on the host machine to update your IP address if you have a dynamic rather than a static, which by far the majority of people do. There is a bit of software required to do it, and that depends much on what type of website you wish to host. A choice of MS or *nix. Of course, you can get pretty much anything required at no cost through the Open Source community for *nix. I have Ubuntu running my server.

I have hosting with downtownhost and they provide free web templates if you want to use them. You can also set up a free forum. However, I do my site designs in Dreamweaver and coffee cup. The downside of having a host is you need a domain name and also pay a yearly/monthly fee....under $100.

Most ISPs prohibit this in their Terms of Service; some even block port 80 (where web servers operate) so that you can't do this. In addition one has to be fairly tech savvy as web servers are constantly subjected to port scans looking for vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Everything needs to be constantly be kept up-to-date; the OS, server software, any scripts that are running and the access and error logs need to be checked for unusual behavior. Compromised servers are used for all sorts of nefarious and illegal activities, including running phishing scams, sending out spam email; DDoS attacks, hosting kiddie porn. You may be held responsible for what your server is doing, even if you are unaware of it.

A better solution is to use space your ISP provides (if it does) or a free host (if you don't mind ads) or an inexpensive web host.

I use seanic.net, for less than $45 per year you get 10 gig of space, 100 email addresses, free domain name you choose ets.

Check it out.

Thanks for the info guys. I doubt if I will be doing any hosting. Sounds like to much trouble to deal with. I don't want to spend all my time having to be a web cop.

Comcast probably doesn't allow it anyway.

Easier to just do it the old way.

I've been hosting a non-profit site with http://www.internetplanners.com for several years. I've been very happy with them for the money. They have a decent basic pkg with plenty of storage for about $72\yr.

If the domain name isn't a priority, Most ISPs offer FREE hosting for personal websites - your site name would just be some sort of an extension off the ISP's URL or sub-directory.

i paid just about 36 bucks for one year with ipage.

unlimited bandwidth, unlimited space, unlimited email addys.

customer service is in clear audible english by american citizens.

their "control panel" is pretty user friendly.

if you are interested in a blog type of site, you can install "wordpress", which you can see an example of here: www.post66.org which is an american legion site that i am slightly assisting with the site on. i set up the server site and did the header graphics. changed some colors in the css style sheet and there you have it.

here is another site i built: www.clarecarey.net

i pretty much took a free template and changed what was on it to get what you see there.

you don't have to set up a forum/message board and have to be an "internet cop".

send me an i.m. if you want more info.

I and our club use www.westhost.com

The one thing I like is their customer service is USA based and is excellent.
