    Hi, in class we had to make a website for an assignment. It could be about whatever we wanted, so I decided to make a page full of random stories with my friends and I. I have decided I want to put this site on the internet for all my other friends to access, but the thing is, it's made on MS Notepad.

    Where/how would I upload this website to? Are there any *free* web hosting sites? It's not a very big thing, but I'd like to keep persuing this site that I've made and share it with everyone.:D

    Hey,

    You can have space on my personal server free of charge.

    Assuming you have a Mac:

    In the Finder bar, click "Go", then "Connect to server"

    Type the following in the box: http://conch.hhst.me/
    Then click Connect

    When asked:
    Username: conch575
    Password: (PM me for it)

    Click "OK"

    Drag the site files into the Finder window.
    It can be accessed at http://conch.hhst.me/
    (We can change conch to something else, I just chose that based on your username)

    Have fun :)

    Pass is shell575

    If anyone else is reading this, that isn't the real password, so don't bother trying.

    Hahah I get it, a Conch is a shell! So it's like my user name!

    Yes :)

    I was thinking conch = shell when I made the password.

    (I'm only sixteen, I find it odd that I happen to own a web server collection) :eek:

    Only 2 mbps up? Why would you have less upload than download for a web host? It seems like it should be the other way around.

    I'll upgrade when I see fit. I never get more than about 250 requests a day, and everything's fast enough. I don't plan to be the next Host Gator or anything.
