Web Page

25 Jan

There are several ways to go about having a web presence.  Let’s start with the easiest ways first.

Blogs:  There are several sites where you can set up a free blog (like this one), and you can be up and running in minutes!  Blogs have several advantages.  You don’t have to be an IT guru to set one up and update it.  With the different appearance options available with most blogs, you can also customize your blog to reflect you and your purpose for a web site.  Adding pictures and links is very easy as well.  Here are several links for free blogs: http://wordpress.com/, http://blog.com/, http://blogger.com/.

Free web space:  Microsoft has a small business program where they will give you web space free.  This is a good way to get your feet wet.  On the down side, your website address is a fourth-level domain, which means it has web.officelive.com at the end of your domain name.  (But it is free!)   http://smallbusiness.officelive.com/en-us/

There  are other offers of free websites on the internet.  One suggestion – “buyer” beware. 

Finally, you can purchase a domain name and web hosting and build and customize everything for your site.
