I tried downloading one of the free websites builders and picked up a virus and malware on my computer which cost me $99.99 to remove.
I won't take that advice again. Free is not always better.
Kulafyn
Prompt delivery, fair price. Text well written and very easy to understand. For those who are on a limited budget or simply don't want to spend a lot of money this is an excellent book to add to your library. There is a true wealth of information contained in this volume. Most highly recommended.
Kanal
The information is too generic to be of any real use. I had to purchase other books to supplement my website building process.
Nekora
wonderful book, easy to read and comprehend. I am enjoying learning about websites, what goes into them and how to make it look appealing. Great resources information too.
Auau
The fact that the information is about doing everything for free is so very useful. Great Book for any level.

In the Introduction to Build a Website for Free, the author, Mark Bell, notes there are two primary reasons for buying the book: 1) you don't know anything about websites but you want/need to build one or 2) you know something about websites but you want to know more about the "free" part. Build a Website for Free is written in the "for dummies" style--lots of rudimentary information presented in short paragraphs with prominent headings. This book is great for someone in category 1...I'm thinking of passing it on to my Dad who keeps threatening to "learn computers." For those in the fairly savvy but thrifty category (that's me), there are plenty of references to free products/services...BUT...the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies. These free tools are great to build a site for the little league or your annual family reunion, but if you are starting a business the "free" route is probably not going to produce a website of the caliber you will need to be taken seriously by the average internet consumer.

I was hoping to be able to do this myself, but I'm afraid that I'm rather technically challenged; so the book was difficult for me to absorb. However my husband, even though a senior, understood it quite well. He was a technician in the early days of personal computers. Apparently, as long as you have some technical skills, this is an excellent guide on how to set up a professional looking website, at a minimum cost. While it isn't exactly free, since you do have to acquire a server and a domain name, the information will help to keep the costs down.

For those planning to do it themselves, it gives the key information for establishing either a website or a personal blog, whether it's for a small business or a large, multi-media based site. It may seem a little intimidating to those who have no programming experience; however, for those who are computer savvy, it's an excellent guide with good examples of websites that are already built and steps to follow to obtain similar results.

As I say, my husband understood the book much better than I did. So here are the important points he discovered:

It definitely helps one to understand the process of building a website as it walks you through the creation of different types.

- Blog (web log) - which includes a list of dated entries, content management systems, and a personal social
- Basic website - planning, design, building, testing, promotion, and maintenance
- Multi media - showing your company products, demos, music, how to use audio, visual and flash files
- Wiki - enables users to collaborate and create a site with others that organizes the submitters information - i.e. - T.V. shows, camping trips, etc.

As well, the books excellent appendix provides
- lists of common HTML tags
- free and open source software websites- e.g. text editors, graphic editors,
- video editors and HTML, blog software, etc.

It also analyzes the pros and cons of the main servers such as Google, Firefox, etc. and explains their limitations. And it guides the reader to a variety of sites to acquaint you with what's available on-line.

My husband's analysis is, even if you don't have the patience or knowledge to do it yourself, BUY THE BOOK for your computer savvy spouse or teenager, explain your need, and offer a reward. Try this before contemplating an expensive professional website builder and maintainer. It's money well spent.
While I have a technical background and learned Fortran and Cobalt years ago, I am no computer geek. Computers, internet, and the use of the web have evolved well beyond my basic skills and understanding by choice. (I have focused my energy and attention on start-up companies in the life sciences and the development of break-through medical products.) I have not lost interest but, rather, did not have the time.

When I saw "Build a Website for Free, 2nd Edition" on the Amazon Vine list several months ago, I decided that this may be a quick and painless way for me to get up to speed, at least with the nuts an bolts of basic websites, multimedia websites, blogging sites, content management system sites, and Wiki sites. I was not wrong. "Build a Website for Free" will give the reader both an excellent foundation and a step-by-step, easy to understand guide for in each of these web site types. This is a great choice for a novice or for those wanting to expand their knowledge into applications beyond a building a basic web site.

Author Mark Bell has 15 years in the computer industry and ran a website design company for many years before landing at Indiana University's Telecommunications Department as a doctoral candidate, where he is today. Bell's focus is on helping people like me understand the process of creating the five different types of websites noted above. He shows how to build each for free and covers everything you need to know from planning, designing, building and maintaining these sites, using free tools. Step-by-step instructions with useful tips and cautions are threaded throughout.

The book's introduction begins with "world wide web 101" and promises, even to those most intimidated and fearful, that they will be up and running on the world wide web before they know it. The book is a bargain as it delivers beyond expectations on the author's promise.
