i’ve noticed that many dancers are hosting on “free” services with piles of ads and really ugly stuff going on. i’ve got a bit of space here and plenty of bandwidth available that i’m not using, so i’ve decided to make my space available for you. this isn’t a lot, and there are some pretty significant limits to what i can do, but i hope this gives some of you a chance to get a “cleaner, more professional” calling card out there on the web.
if you’re a dancer, and i know you, and you just want a simple one-to-a-few-page website that you don’t intend to update very often, i’ll host you in my space without the popups and funky hosting scripts and other garbage that “free hosting” usually involves.
it’s not practical for me to open access on this server to a bunch of new people, so i’ll have to upload and update your pages. this means if i’m not available for a few days, no updates will get done – this is the price of free – it also means it’s not really well-suited if you have a calendar you need to keep up-to-date. i also don’t really want to get too involved in web design on your behalf (but i can recommend some great people), so what goes into your space is up to you….
if you need something a bit more elaborate (lots of updates or lots of pages), i know a small, local hosting and web design place run by a couple genuinely good people – if that’s something you need, let me know and i’ll put you in touch. i think they’re charging about $10/month for hosting (plus design) right now.
of course, if you’ve already got an amazing web presence, just ignore everything you just read :)
