Okay guys i need help. I am "computer challenged". I can access email and google, thats about it...DONT LAUGH. My husband does have quite a bit of computer savy but he is in the Army and doesnt have a lot of time to spare for something that he thinks is trivial. I would like to have a site i can put pictures of my props and my village. I dont need a bunch of email addresses. I would like to be able to add some cool graphics and sounds. I am also looking for a good name for it. I thought something like turtles nightmare. I realize a turtle doesnt exactly strike fear in the hearts of most folks, but Ive been stuck with the name for years. Help me out haunters!!!

Thanks, Turtle

hehehe if you are looking for a site i suggest using freewebs.com. it's what i use and they have to so if you don't know much, you can still build a site. they have easy-to-use templates and you can upload images using their file uploader. it's quite easy. it's what i started with when i started to my websites, now i'm more advanced and i can use HTML so i don't have to use the templates freewebs provides me. anyways, i would go there first. if you have any questions you can e-mail me at [email protected]. :D let me know how it goes!

freewebs is indeed the best for beginners.

be warned though. you can only create 20 pages. that is not a lot. especially for a haunt website. I suggest using Yahoo! Geocities. theyre also free. you can use a page builder there too. geocities.com

you can use your already existing yahoo! account.

Yes Beepem you can only create so many pages via Freewebs but you can upgrade to a paid account for as little as 10.00 a year. I pay $15.00 a year for domain hosting unlimited uploads, pages, etc. It is well worth paying that than dealing with the popups and ads one Geocities and the other free hosts.

I am one for having your very own domain name and website cheap so try 1and1.com for 5.99 you get a domain name 1 email address at your new domain name and an easy to use website builder for 1 year. Its only 5.99 per year thats a lot for 5.99 in my opinion. Now the website can only have 4 pages (upgradeable of course) but they can scroll down as fas as you want them to on each page. That way it is www.yourname.com or whatever extension you choose. I am not a realy big fan of websites that are on ISP's like aol comcast and others for various reasons etc. You have sooo many choices it will drive you mad!

Yes Turtle that's what we mean. You can take a look at mine if you want and see a bit of what freewebs has to offer. Oh and one more thing Freewebs has unlimited bandwidth so your pages will always be visible.

band·width (bănd'wĭdth', -wĭth')

The amount of data that can be passed along a communications channel in a given period of time.

Basically if you run out of bandwidth for your website it can't be seen by anyone till it resets on a certain day. It usually runs monthly.
