Domain name registrars
NameDemo Free domain name! If you
can put up with banner ads, you can get your own domain name for free.
A great way to reserve your favorite name. Includes free E-mail.
One catch is they charge you $35 after the first year,
and is expensive to switch the domain name to another registrar once you've registered it with NameDemo.
.us The best kept secret on the Internet is that you can register your domain name for free,
using a geographical"Locality: address. Pick any city or area name (probably the one where you live), add the state & country, and put any name you want at the begriming.
I registered RNA.San-Jose.CA.US. You'll still need a DNS - see Granite Canyon.
All this was 10 years ago. Now it is more complicated. The .us registrars want to charge for the domain but there should still be a way to get it for free. See http://nic.us/register/locality.html. I'm currently trying to get RNA.Corte-Madera.ca.us. Look up your city (or county) third-level domain at to .us Who-Is to see who the Delegated Registrar is for your locality.
DNS (Domain Name Server)
Granite Canyon A free DNS that works most of the time. If you need more than
3 nines reliability, it's better to use a commercial DNS. Granite Canyon has a good message board than can help you use the service.
EarthLink / Mindspring EarthLink has standard DSL, but without a fixed IP address. If you
want to host your own website, you'll need a business account (at $129/month!). There's cheaper ways to get a fixed IP,
I just ended up with them after the other companies I was using got out of the DSL business.
Dreamweaver for building Web pages. 11 MB download.
30 day free trail: http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/download/ or Academic
version download for $99 Professor Kwan said we can use the HTML text editor in Dreamweaver,
but, "The full CD version of Dreamweaver 3 Windows includes HomeSite 4.5.
The full CD version of Dreamweaver 3 Macintosh includes a fully integrated
evaluation copy of BBEdit. Dreamweaver educational products do not
include text editors." So. apparently, neither version above has the HTML
editor Kwan wants us to use. Only way to get it is to buy the box at retail,
or see the link below to get HomeSite directly.
"Allaire HomeSite is the industry’s #1 professional HTML
editor. The intuitive WYSIWYN (what you see is what you need) interface
gives you all the necessary site-building tools right at your fingertips."
"HomeSite is the award-winning HTML editing tool that lets you build great
Web sites in less time, while maintaining pure HTML. Created by Web developers
for Web developers, only HomeSite gives you precise layout control and
total design flexibility, while delivering the latest Web technologies,
CFML, VB Script, XML, and XSL." I RECOMEND HOMESITE - it appears
to have the right features for easy editing, while still satisfying Kwan's
requirement that we use only a test editor.
