Writing for the Web

Going Online: Obtain a Web Site Account

A Web site account provides you with a URL (Web address) for your site, a folder in which to place your files, and a user name and password so that you can access that folder. Many colleges and universities provide Web accounts to students at no cost. In addition, some companies provide Web and email accounts for no charge.

If you are a student, you can usually learn whether your college or university provides free or low-cost Web accounts by visiting your institution's main Web site. If you are not a student, or prefer to set up a Web site that is not hosted by your college or university, consider visiting Yahoo!'s list of Web Hosting Providers. You will find a list of free Web site providers near the top of the page.
