Basic Resources for a Web Site
Version 1.2 FRE[SP]3KZ
You first need to get some web space. Sometimes you can get some free webspace from your ISP, but if you don't, try this website: www.absolutely-free-hosting.com for a listing of loads of FWPs [Free Webpage Providers] and if they want ads on your page or not, and so on.
If you're in the UK and you need to get some decent paid space, you can get some cheap domains and webspace from 1&1.
If you land up with a FWP that gives you a really long URL such as
http ://members.loadsaspace.4free.com /MemberStreet/38423 /~john.smith/ [or maybe shorter ] then consider getting a redirector. There are some good ones out there, but the best [in my opinion, correct me if you think I'm wrong] are:
an e-mail address. You can get a free POP3 e-mail address from Portland Communications.
Getting to grips with HTML
If you don't know HTML, try tutorials at Page Resource. They have very simple tutorials for newbies and oldies to help you take the plunge.
Uploading your files
If you want to download a program to upload then try WS_FTP. Their LE version will be appropriate. It can be found at www.ipswitch.com.
If you want to upload without a FTP program go straight to Net2FTP, which can be found at www.net2ftp.com, or an alternative can be found at www.01ftp.com
