How to Develop a Website or Blog for Non-Technical People

There are endless reasons why teachers, instructors, trainers and facilitators may want to use a website host.  Do you want to start a blog or create a website?  Do you have a creative side that's itching for an audience?  Perhaps you want to generate income?  Whatever the reason, finding a webhost is easy -- there are thousands to choose from.  But as in any industry, there are good apples and bad apples.

The cost for state-of-the-art webhosting is now less than the price of lunch at McDonalds.  
Why would you opt for anything less than the best?

-- David Stevens, Professor at SUNY nationally ranked in top 25 by RateMyProfessor.com

Using a combination of website reviews from teachers and advice from technical experts, we compiled a ranking of established webhosts with strong reputations.  This is not an exhaustive list, but hosts on this list have proven themselves to be very reputable.

We also explain how to set up great looking blogs and websites with each of the website hosts listed.  Even if you have no technical experience setting up a blog or website, you will feel confident walking through our step-by-step instructions and using the other resources we identify.
