Default who did you use for your website creation?

who do/did the other teams use to produce their websites? obviously we would benefit from having one but i`m a simpleton when it comes to computers and have no idea where to start! if someone has a suggestion or even wants to produce a website for us let me know please.

if this is in te wrong section, please move it

Jamie,
Just a suggestion.
I have used servage in the past to host websites,

Their package includes a website builder that is is easy to use (you do not need to know how to HTML code) and comes with functions that can be easily installed including forums.

They are also reasonable in price

The short answer is ME -- not brilliant but at least free.

We are hosted on 34sp.com, who give roughly 10% of their space free to registered charities

If you are doing it yourself for the first time and looking for a package Joomla is prob the easiest and it is free.
Very time consuming but quite addictive
PM if you want more info and some example sites.

Ours - www.bhclrc.co.uk & www.bhc4x4response.org are done by hand in html using dreamweaver. Personally I find the builder packages never quite do what I want.

Raw html is quite easy but like anything it takes a few hours do get the hang of it.

Hi Jamie,

Hosting; we get for free from 34sp.com if you can't get it for free you'd be looking at about 40/Year.
Charity registration; as you are in Scotland you will ned to take a look here and here
