Creating Web Pages with HomePage

Most of us would like to have our own customized Web site; however, many lack the experience to build the site, or don't know a Web designer who would do a good job for the least amount of money and maintenance. If you want to create a Web site that shows off pictures of your family, or you want to create an online resume, there's no need to hold back any longer, because having a .Mac account gives you the ability to create a Web site. By following step-by-step instructions using an application called HomePage. As a matter of fact, if you're a Web designer, you can create the site using programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver, or Adobe GoLive, and upload the site. Your .Mac account lets you create a Web site, based on your level of experience, and helps you tailor the site to your specific needs.
