There's a plethora of web hosting services willing to host personal web pages that you create. You can post your genealogy pages on the web as well as other pages about most anything else that you wish to share with others, be it your bowling league's scores, your son's Cub Scout Den home page, or pictures of your grandchildren or family gatherings. Prices range from free to about $10.00 a month for personal Web sites.
However, you might not want to use a commercial hosting service. Many people are surprised to learn that they can create their own web server on any Windows 95 or later computer as well as on Macintosh OS X or on Linux. Your present computer can serve as a web server, even while you simultaneously use the word processor, read and write e-mail, surf the Web, or use other programs.
In fact, you will find it easy to install a Web server on your system.
