I want to build a website...

Postby RevSears on Sat Nov 13, 2010 7:41 am

I've often thought about building a website again for toy/comic/game news reviews etc. I've got a few people intersted in helping but... I thought i could use frontpage and ftp etc. But those days are long gone. What the heck should I do? Chad? Matt? i think i've asked before but what do you used to host? I looked into my old tripod account, but it doesn't seem to support microsoft's latest web builder, Web Expression, nor does it seem to suppoort FTP type file movement. It seems to want you to build a site entirely on their site.

I have no idea what Chad uses. I know that General's Joes is done on wordpress, as is our front page and my customs blog, http://www.chadmatted.wordpress.com

You can do it free, or pay money. Paying gives you more options like naming your site differently and editing the css code. I have to use a template since my site is free and the only thing I can change is content and the main header image.

I use dotster.com for both my domain and hosting. The basic packages are pretty good and versatile.

Thanks chad I will check them out. I still haven't got around to doing anything sadly. It's more work now that the tools i'm used to using (frontpage/cuteftp) are obsolute and i honestly don't know the knew stystems. Not to mention i'm noticing a general trend in the boards i do frequent. It just seems like boards are all slowing down.
