A little web site

By Kahless1972 ·
What program would you recommend to use as a way of posting a small joke of a web site using my personnal computer.I have a few requirements:
I want to be able to use my system even though it is hosting the site
i want to be able to password protect the site
Low resource hog
And i would rather not pay for DDns services as this is only to allow file sharing with a few friends outside the state i live in.I have looked into remote transfer programs but since they live in the sticks getting anything better for them but dialup is hard.Also when they want to file transfer i want to be sleeping.Tahnks for any and all suggestions

Check the terms of your contract with your ISP.
Nearly ALL ISPs do not allow you to host a site from your own PC.

Many do allow you web space for a web page, and have software to help you create the page.

Beyond that, you are really better off using one of the cheap or free hosting services.

Here is a link to a 'freeware' HTML program.

I highly recommend Microsoft Front Page with a free site on Tripod. Front page hooks right into Tripod and handles all of the FTP stuff with alittle setup involved. All of the info is nicly layed out on tripod's web site.
