You can also buy a domain name - like http://SamuelOdio.com - from a domain name registrar. But make sure your registrar supports '''URL forwarding (frame redirect)'''. I recommend [http://namecheap.com NameCheap.com]. At $8.88 / yr they're pretty cheap - and they have a ton of cool services. I'm going to use NameCheap in this tutorial, but that shouldn't stop you from using someone else.

Build your own website with this tutorial

So you want a website!

This tutorial will walk you through building a decent looking site using BluWiki.org.

It's Fast, Fun, and Free!

The best part is, you don't need to know HTML or how to use a text editor. BluWiki uses the MediaWiki markup, so if you've ever contributed to WikiPedia, you'll feel right at home. And if you haven't, that's OK - everything is easy to learn.

Lets get started

Step 1: Create your site

This step is pretty easy, just go to http://bluwiki.com/start.php and choose a name for your site.

Once you've found a name that's free, write it down. The site name I've chosen is "Foo Bar" - that's what I'll use for the rest of this tutorial.

Clean URLS:

These are URLs that don't have any BluWiki formatting at all. When users go to the URL, all they see is your content. Pretty cool, eh?

Step 2: Your BluWiki URL

You have a couple options for your URL. Pick one and stick with it:

Basically, with the clean URLs, the only stuff displayed on the page is your content. Choose the standard URL if you want your page to look like a wiki. For my Foo Bar page, I'm going to use the URL http://bluwiki.com/site/Foo_Bar

When checking out, look for the "SELECT DOMAIN REGISTRATION OPTIONS" page (pictured)

Last Step: Add Content

To edit your page, go to http://bluwiki.com/go/Page_Title_Here and just click the edit icon (http://www.bluwiki.org/skins/bluwiki_skin/Edit-small.png) in the top right hand corner of the page.
