I need to set up a domain w/ a webite to which I can upload video, pdfs, word docs, jpgs. The purpose is to tell my story - with the documentation that backs up my story - of a failure of the courts in my state to act in a competent, ethical manner in a matter that is pretty much life and death to me. My lawyer is preparing to move up the court system appeal-wise, but 1] I'm not sure how much is corruption vs incompetence/disinterest and how far up it goes and 2] I'm not sure how much more of this legal hockeysticks I can take. My health is poor and my pocketbook limited. I move slowly and can only read tech stuff for so long before I get tired. Hence, the reason I haven't managed to upgrade to el dorado yet. So even tho I'm hoping to use one of the DIY sites I'm having a hard time picking one. I found WIX the easiest as far as getting some of my initial questions answered thru their help. Reviews suggest godaddy has better security. But I didn't understand a lot of the terms in the articles I read or the options in the different plans.


I am going to want to be able to password the site initially in hopes of resolving the matter of influencing people and finding necessary help w/out opening the documentation to the whole world. If that fails, then I'd like my site to show up in legal discussion groups, judicial reform groups and disability aid groups, if such groups still exist. The web has changed so much since I first started to use it for research and contact. The point of the website is to bring the "goings on" out into the light instead of buried in court transcripts - to make judges and others aware that their actions are going to be known and to, hopefully, find people willing to help. My lawyer appears knowledgeable and ethical, but in our courts facts and law don't seem to matter. It's power and politics. So far, we aren't winning and thus the appeals.


Does anyone have a recc for which site would be best for my purpose and my lack of knowledge? Besides the pw ability, I probably want a contact app people can send me messages. Maybe the ability to have a discussion group on the site? A place where other people can tell their stories and submit their court transcripts, letters, emails, etc.? I don't really know what I need for my purpose. The prices I saw listed at the sites for a personal page are w/in my limited pocketbook unless a personal page at one site wouldn't serve my purpose.


Sorry for the long spiel. I would appreciate any tips, info, outright recommendation of a site.

If you buy your domain from Web Daddy you can use any host you want and just change the name servers. (Much easier to do than it sounds) WIX and Weebly you can't move you domain to another server if you don't like them.
