Setting Up A Website

If you are just starting a website and don't want to pay for one until you are sure that you are experienced enough to pay for space, there is lots of places for free web space out there.  However there will be ads on your site and those annoying pop-ups.  But it is a way to start.

I have found in the past, trying many different sites, that Geocities is the best place to set up your site.  It is free, you get 15 mb of space.  It has excellent tools for building your pages and you can learn a lot from them.  This is how I learned HTML.  I set up my pages in the basic editor and then used there HTML tutorials to learn how to add to my pages, and eventually, build my own page without the aid of any editor.

Here is the link to where you can sign up and set up a site

However, if you already have a Yahoo ID, which you have to have to get into the Yahoo groups, you already have web space that you did not even know you had.

If you sign up for your site, you could even use the space to learn what you need and then move on to your own domain, and get ad free.

After you get your web space set up, you can then go into your file manager area and see what is available there for you.

This is what it will look like

Here are some of the features you will see

If you go into the HTML Help will see questions and answers for all you need to know about HTML.  I printed these off and it helped me learn it and use it as a quick reference when working on my pages.

Inside the file manager you will find more tools

You can begin to build a page here if you like either using

the HTML Editor or the Basic HTML Editor

I would start with the basic Editor.

Your other option is to use their Page Wizard

 or Page Builder

What you need to do if you are interested in setting up a site, try Geocities/Yahoo and just play with the tools this week and see what you can learn.  If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.  I will help you any way I can.
