For some schools, finding a web server that will
host your school web pages may be a new issue for you. This page offers
suggestions on where you can begin looking for a place to publish your
school web pages.
There are several places that will host your school
web site. Some will do this for free while others will charge you
for the space you use. For an additional price, some will offer
you extra services such as web resource tools which will help you build
dynamic content for your site.
Whatever resource you use, you should avoid using web
servers that force you to display non-educational banners or advertisements. Some
of these banners may display material that is inappropriate for students
to visit or they may be trying to sell products or services that students
and parents don't want.
- Educational Resource Center
- If you are a member of the Educational
Resource Center sponsored by your state department of
education, they may have a web server that you can use to host
your school's web site.
- Internet Service Provider
- Your Internet Service Provider will
usually offer their members limited space on the web server. Contact
your Internet Service Provider and see how much web server space
they will give you.
