Things to do to get on the web:

Thing 1) Find a host that supports FrontPage extensions. This involves finding ISP-type places that say they can host your site. Look at those. They should say right up front what software extensions they accept.

Thing 2) Compare prices, sturdiness of host (you don't want lots of down time), support. Some hosts are free, but the site is incredibly slow and you have to allow banners advertising other people's stuff. The way I chose? Earthlink is my ISP. They also offered web hosting at a reasonable fee. They're big. End of story.

Thing 3) Choose your host, sign up with them. You will have to give them a domain name for them to search ('') to see if the one you want is taken. If it isn't, they take a few days to get all the 0's and 1's in place, and send you an e-mail that says: 'Here's your website address. To publish to it, here's your login and password. Have fun.'

Thing 4) Take me to lunch at the Out-O-Town club so you can get some pointers face-to-face on web design.

Thing 5) Create a cool site in Frontpage.

Thing 6) Publish it using frontpage publishing tool/wizard (don't worry - this part is really easy).

Thing 7) Start a thread in the Website Discussion Forum saying - 'Here's my new website - check it out!'
