It is hard to imagine a business—large or small, not having a website.  Yet a shocking number of teachers skip this fundamental aspect of marketing to new students and keeping existing students engaged.

Luckily, getting a website up and running is not nearly as hard as you might think, and the first step is finding some ‘online real estate’ at which you can host your website.

I recommend the following services to get yourself up and running quickly.

Ez Web Hosting

This affordable web host offers inexpensive web hosting and a number of tools to manage your website, analyze web traffic, set up email accounts and much more.  It is also WordPress friendly, which is the most important feature in a web hosting service.  In addition, their customer service and technical support is superior to most other hosting services.

SquareSpace

If you need a website fast and want it to look professional, look no further than SquareSpace.  This service will have you up and running in no time and the site you create will be both professional and easy to create.  It will cost you a bit more than WordPress which is free, but if you are uncomfortable with technology, this service may well be your guardian angel.

Formstack

This service will enable you to create forms for your website.  Create anything from a simple contact form to event registration forms and student feedback surveys.   The interface is easy and the finished product is professional looking.  Embedding forms into your website is effortless and the service easily integrates with a number of other online services such as Constant Contact.  Best of all, you can get their basic services for free or upgrade to a more comprehensive package if you need more advanced tools.

WordPress

This free, open source software can be installed on your web host and used to manage your website.  There are thousands of templates, many of which are free.  In addition, there are plugins to make your site interactive with social networks, manage e-commerce, and just about everything else you can imagine.    There is a slight learning curve to get set up, but once you understand the web-based dashboard, you will be able to update your site as easily as composing a word processing document.   There are even iOS and Android apps for updating your site and blog on the road.  Ez Web Hosting even has a setup tool to install the free software with just a few clicks.  WordPress is used to host DarrenMain.com to help you get a feel for a WordPress site.

  1. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  2. I was pretty pleased to uncover this web site. I want to to
    thank you for ones time just for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every bit of it and I have you saved to fav
    to look at new things in your blog.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to discover someone that genuinely
    understands what they’re discussing on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More people should look at this and understand this
    side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular
    because you definitely possess the gift.

    Very nice write-up. I definitely appreciate this site.
    Keep it up!

    It’s difficult to find educated people about this subject, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking
    about! Thanks

    You should be a part of a contest for one of the greatest sites on the net.

    I will recommend this website!

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need
    to write more about this subject matter, it may not
    be a taboo matter but typically people do not talk about these topics.

    To the next! Cheers!!

    Hey there! I simply would like to offer you a huge thumbs up for your excellent info you have got here on this post.
    I am coming back to your site for more soon.

    After I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with
    the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that
    service? Thank you!

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won’t fail me as much as this one.
    After all, I know it was my choice to read through, however I
    genuinely thought you would have something interesting to
    talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could possibly
    fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

    Spot on with this write-up, I absolutely believe this website
    needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be returning to see more, thanks for the info!

    You are so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve truly read through a single thing like this before.
    So good to discover somebody with a few unique thoughts on this issue.

    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is one thing that’s needed on the web,
    someone with a bit of originality!

    This is the right site for anybody who would like to understand this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need
    to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic which has been discussed for decades.
    Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

    Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to
    create a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage
    to get anything done.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog
    that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.

    Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thank you, However
    I am experiencing issues with your RSS. I don’t know why I can’t
    join it. Is there anybody else having the same RSS problems?
    Anyone that knows the solution can you kindly respond?
    Thanx!!

    onto a friend who has been doing a little homework on this.
