    I use freeservers.com . They have templates in which you can just fill in the blanks, or you can upload your site pages created by web authoring software.

    Here is my template site: www.bradyassoc.8m.com . It costs $24/yr to keep off the popup ads.

    Here is the homemade site: www.powdercoatoven.4t.com . Clearly, my web design skills are somewhat lacking, but it was fun to do. This one's free, but has the popup ads, which are not much of an issue with the more modern browsers.

    Can't beat the price.

    I'm not fond of myspace as far as having your own "page". Its interface is so clunky, I can't believe it's the #1 networking Web site. I've seen people who have xanga sites as well...they just seem rather "canned", there's not a lot of latitude for choosing what you'd like design-wise. These sites are nice though if you're interested in networking within the community that's available to you by creating a page there.

    My 2 cents!
    I have one on Geocities ( http://www.geocities.com/SouthBeach/Lagoon/1075/ ) and one on Tripod as well ... PSEND is better and less expensive to clear away the clutter ..

    Web Page Resources

    For books, I prefer Web Design Garage, or the O'Reilly book on HTML or Web Design available at your local book store or at Amazon.com...see link below for the Garage book:
    http://www.amazon.com/Web-Design-Gar...2871361&sr=1-1

    Here are some other links I've found interesting:
    http://www.openwebdesign.org/ (open source info for diy Web-page creators)
    http://www.normankoren.com/webpages.html (not fancy, but gives some good instruction)
    http://www.lissaexplains.com/ (HTML help for kids, but an easy tutorial for adults to learn as well!)

    Like telling www.jimyo.com to go to his dads server (IP address) ..
    anyway, not much more that I can provide.. I guess the only issue really is "how much bandwidth his Dad is willing to buy" .. then again that might not even be an issue

    Another up and coming webhosting service to look into is google pages. YEs, our favorite web search company is offering webhosting: pages.google.com

    If its static (fixed IP address) then you can still go to yahoo or any other registration service and register the name you want and have them redirect to your Dad's IP address. I suspect that he is aware of firewall requirements for servers that connect into the web... when you open that server to the web and start sending it traffic , "The bad guys will come" ... and, the http://www.xanga.com/ is taken so you will have to search the registry service for another one..

    I have done several on different servers... I think the best one that I have is on WWW.PSEND.COM you can get 20 megs for free, and for $10.00 a years keep all the advertising and popups off the page. go to Yahoo.com for their domain registration, and then have Yahoo redirect to your psend site... here is mine www.jimy0.com or http://jimyo.psend.com both will take you to the same webpage the www.Jimy0.com is yahoo redirecting to the same psend page. www.jimyo.com is redirecting to a set of pages within the http://jimyo.psend.com address that I pay 10.00 a year to keep the adds off. Bottom line .. 2 redirect addresses that are easy to remember which go to one psend server. Hope that helps, if not send me an email and I can talk you through the process. there are others. Perhaps you might google "free web pages" and go from there.
