Introduction: How to Make a Website
I found something awesome that allows you to make a website. It is online, and you can sign up for free. If you make a site on google sites, it gives you a big, long URL that people have to remember and type in, which is a lame sites.google.com/site/... URL. This service gives you a varying type of URL. Some I've seen include.web(some number).net, .net(some number).net, and sometimes even .com! My site is http://stevenstechstuff.net84.net . I thought that the Instructables community would like to see this great service

Step 1: Make an Account
Step 2: Start Your Site
Once you have signed up, you will receive two e-mails. One has a general username and password, and the other has a complicated username and password with numbers and letters. Next, go here , which is the login page for 000 Webhost. Once you are logged in (use the usename and password that you chose, not the number and letter computer generated junky one), click “Go to c-Panel”, which is in the list of domains next to your site’s URL. Then, scroll down to the Software/Services options. Click on “Website Builder”. In “Step 1”, click the link. When the new window opens, your user and password should be entered already. Don’t change them because these are special logins that you need. Click on “Next-> Step Two” This will take around 5 minutes to load (maybe less, maybe more for you) because it has to set up your site’s server. Be patient, though. It is, after all, creating your very own website for you.
Step 3: Start Your Site (continued)
When it finally finishes loading, you will be able to select a template for your website. Click the white “X” in the corner of the window that opens within your browser, not your browser's "X" button. It will be easier to select without that blue window. You probably want to look through a lot of them, because changing this takes a lot of time and work. When you have looked through and chosen one, click on the “Next” button again. This should not take as long as the last page did. At the next page you can set up which pages you want. You don’t have to give contact information, but that is a good feature for a business’s website. Choose the pages that you want (you can change this later). Then click the next button, and your site will be created!
