I would like to set up a webpage or website in which I upload Word docs or pdfs, spreadsheets, jpgs, sound files and maybe some video - all pertaining to a certain topic. I would like to make the contents only available to those with a password, altho at some point I might want to make it available to anyone/everyone. The content would contain correspondence between lawyers and bankers, court transcripts, probate records and Trust statements - everything obtained legally but perhaps "controversial" if the owners of a website had loans w/ certain banks or certain lawyers tried to protect themselves from the truth. Such restrictions seem unlikely considering what I've heard and read gets expressed on different websites such as Twitter and others. I hope freedom of speech isn't curtailed when it comes to setting up a webpage.

 

I have email accounts w/ AT&T and Comcast. Both used to allow one to set up a webpage, but I don't know if they still do and I don't know what restrictions as to content might apply. Comcast has pared down their help section to mostly nothing. I have a Facebook account that so far I have nothing on it because I'm too tired to figure out how to set it up securely and I don't know what restrictions they might have.

 

Every time I go to read computer stuff I get interrupted having to compose and send a "legal" email or read some "legal" document and I find it hard to concentrate when I try to update my computer knowledge. Having such a webpage might give me an edge in my battle against the big, rich, powerful bad guys who have "legally" but unlawfully blocked Trust funds intended to provide for me after my father's death [no offense to honest lawyers or bankers] - plus if my house burns down everything would be archived.

 

I'd appreciate any info anyone with experience in setting up such a webpage can provide - can I use a freebie or would I do better to purchase a service? I have a large volume of information I'd like to make available.

I would use Google Docs.
Sounds like it can do what you need.
Purchase a spot for 20 bucks a year and it is yours.

It's 100 gigabytes for 20 bucks a year...
If you pay annually.
otherwise 1.99 per month

Thanks Martel. 100 gigabytes should be more than adequate .

Also, WordPress is oftentimes recommended as an easy & straightforward way to build a website from a chosen template if that is more what you seek.:)

Thanks Just One Question. I'll take a look at WordPress. A template might help. In the end I may need a website - paid or free - with bells and whistles to help me make the site user friendly.

 

I signed up for Google Drive - there's a free 16 GB to start experimenting with. It seems similar to MegaDrive, which I use for online storage but it looks like it will be easier to upload. MegaDrive has a sync app, but I haven't figured out how it works - can't find the help info.

 

Google Docs turned out to be for sharing docs so several people can edit them, but it led me to Google Drive.

If you want a free web host so you can add html, php, or other scripting to add further support, then Look at these Web Hosting Directories: http://www.free-webhosts.com/ and http://www.webhostingbest10.com/free-web-hosting
