    I am just starting out and i would like to make a simple web site. Well My cable/Internet provider offers free web hosting. How do i create a basic web page and transfer it there. I am so lost i have looked every where, i just want to make a simple web page and all this terminology has me smacking my head off the wall. I found one on yahoo but you have to host it on there site, so any ideas or help would be great

    I would start by calling up your cable company, however I don't think your'e allowed to have a personal/commercial web address. i think they just give you something like comcast.com/~rich instead of (for example) sceniclawnscape.com. let me know if you need a hand with anything.

    If you want the older version that is a little easier to use, I can email it to you. This is a very good free html editor to make your own. It is very easy to use and learn.

    It's easier than it seems, but once you get into it a bit.

    I've got the hang of it because everything was put in place and my son gave me dreamweaver.

    With a program like frontpage or dreamweaver, changes are not much harder - nor building, than learning to type in MS Word.

    And files transfer as easy as dragging an icon from your computer folder icon into another icon representing your server when you open the FTP program.

    I just downloaded a free version of Smart FTP.
