Chapter 2. Share Workspaces and Lists >  Get SharePoint Services

2.1. Get SharePoint Services

If you don't have SharePoint Services, you need it. I don't care if you work alone from your home office (as I do). SharePoint is too useful to pass up and it's free ...well, kind of. SharePoint Services are actually part of Windows 2003 so if you have Windows Server 2003 already, you can download the installation from Microsoft and install it fairly easily.

If you don't have Windows Server 2003, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial though one of the SharePoint hosting providers. These third parties are a lot like the web hosting services you can find on the Internet. You get an account with some space on their server. You can administer your site yourself through a web-based interface, and after the free trial period, they'll bill you monthly.
