OR, great start. As you rework your vessel, be sure to include aas many pictures as you can. We all love to "see" the work and finished product. I've never looked into setting up my own site. What is the typical cost to maintain a server for your site. Anyone else using someone other than geocities chime in, I'd like to see price comparisons.

hauptjm-

it doesnt cost me thing.
but i think you have a limit to one page.
But I think I can create other 1 page sites and link then together with links.

Anyone else have ideas or experience setting up a site. If so, I would love to here from you.

I got a domain name and template for a website through www.networksolutions.com. They were bought out recently by someone else but that url will get you there. I bought 4yrs of hosting for $30-40/yr. It comes with one web page that you can post copy and pictures... I upgraded to the 5page model for a flat $50 or so. Email is an extra $30/yr.
-The main thing is you get your very own URL. Eventually I hope to learn enough html to toss the canned site and develop my own from scratch. Until then this works. Plus it is very easy to post pictures/etc.
-and this is cool, especially with relatives who use aol/yahoo accts... those free accts don't give enough memory to send many pictures, so I post them on the site.
-nothing fancy, but check out www.deisinger.com

My ISP is Earthlink, and they offer a free 10 megabyte site to all subscribers.

I might be mistaken but you should be able to put more than one page on your website. The main page will be your index page, the one we see first, then you create other pages, naming them: Pictures, feedback, updates...etc...and then link from your index page to the other pages...you just have to upload them...if you've done it for one, you can do it for others.

Good luck and keep us posted...

Great job OR18, I plan to develop a site to document the work I have done and will continue to do to my Montauk (time is NOT on my side lately). I have a great hosting company, $99 /year and this includes your domain name unlimited pages, hits, email and lots of advanced features. Here is a link to one of the site I have done using this host with lots of bells and whistles. http://smegl.com
