Chapter 4. Using HomePage

Chapter 4. Using HomePage

HomePage is a Web-site tool that lets you create Web pages with the files stored on your iDisk. Using any of the hundreds of templates that come with HomePage, you can whip up a Web site in minutes—without having to know even a lick of HTML.

Your .Mac Web pages are great for sharing pictures, movies, or files with friends and family. They're not so great, however, for running a business. For a business site, you'll probably want features that .Mac doesn't offer, such as forums, shopping carts, and customized domains. If that's the case, you'll need to host your site through a company that specializes in Web hosting.

Most users, however, will find that HomePage makes up for its lack of business features through ease of use and a slew of professional-looking templates. You can use HomePage to create your Web pages—which is perfect if you don't know HTML or just don't have the time to create a custom site—or you can create your site in a different HTML editor and host the pages on your .Mac account. I'll cover both in this chapter.
