Free Web Hosting
Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital is happy and eager to have your pages linked to us! So please submit them!
Our Council does not host Troop or Service Unit web pages, however we do link Troop Pages to the Troop Pages section and Service Units are linked under our Association Pages (See example here). Troops are encouraged to build WebPages on their own perhaps as a project.
As far as web hosting goes, you may want to check your own ISP like (AOL, Comcast, Verizon, etc.) to see if your account includes existing web space, if it does you may want to use that, or there are many free webhosting places out there for your wb pages if you do not already have a place.
Some suggestions of sites for free web hosting:
Free email can be obtained at many places. Below are a few suggestions.
And for those who wish to explore the internet for free and have a modem but no ISP try:
(you can download the program and set it up on any machine that has a modem).
Or check out a directory of free ISPs.
After you have set up your website, email the URL to our on-line specialist for approval and we will be happy to link it to our site. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
