    OK folks might as well throw this one out too...in this day & age how complicated is it to create & setup yur own website, say...just a simple Christ-based site with sermons & such. Nothing fancy or huge in bandwidth or space. Are there ANY good free places or providers?
    Thanks!!

    Plenty simple

    I managed to create my simple homepage in a day without any smarts (does it show?). :tongue3:

    But I came up against my free 10 MB limit pretty fast...:tonofbricks:

    and so it sits unfinished for a bit more time.

    There are free services around. Couple folks mentioned it in this thread awhile back.

    Godaddy.com is very cheap if you don't mind paying a little.

    Very easy really. Netscape (Older versions anyway) has a "Composer" that has done most of mine until this last year when I went with an ebay copy of Front page.

    The Composer is pretty easy to learn. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but does a fair job in my mind.

    mychristiansite.com

    ourchurch.com

    These are similar to GeoCities, AngelFire, et al. They have the set-ups where you create your site.

    If you already have a site created, and are looking for places that do free hosting, please private message me for more recommendations.

    My friend and I run the server. Any of the first 3 packages are free, no ads. If you have FrontPage, it includes FrontPage Extensions. cPanel is also equipped with Fantastico De Luxe, which lets you install different content management systems with a few clicks. Here's a few examples:

    b2evolution
    Nucleus
    pMachine Free
    WordPress
    Drupal
    Geeklog
    Joomla
    Mambo Open Source
    PHP-Nuke
    phpWCMS
    phpWebSite
    Post-Nuke
    Siteframe
    TYPO3
    Xoops

    Thanks kubel!
    I'm just playin with the other site right now like I sais to sorta get an idea of what I'm supposed to do. I do like the no ads part!
    I'll bookmark the site so I don't lose track..& thought I had FrontPage but I guess it ain't part of the 2000Pro setup.
    Thanks Again!!
