The James V. Brown Library will host a free presentation from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14.
The topic is "Creating an easy-to-edit '.com' Web Page for $13/year."
This program is intended for any individual, group or small business who does not have a web page; and also anyone who already has a web page, and would like to reduce the monthly cost.
Discussion will begin with domain names; how to search and register a ".com" domain name from a low-cost registrar such as GoDaddy, 1+1 and NameCheap.
Then, free hosting services such as Google's Blogger, Weebly Yola and others will be discussed.
The actual web pages are built using Google's Blogger service to provide free hosting, which has an easy-to-use editing system that can be used to create an attractive, clutter-free website, that can be updated from any Internet connected computer. Prospective attendees are encouraged to view the "Examples" page at BilltownWeb.org - to view about 20 examples of how these look.
If there is interest, a second, hands-on workshop may be scheduled at a later date where attendees will be guided through setting up their own website.
The speaker, James Ingram, is the webmaster for the library's Susquehanna SeniorNet web page, as well as the creator of several other local business and organization websites.
The presentation will be held in the James V. Brown Library's Lowry Room on the third floor of the Welch Family Wing. The program is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
