imported graphics without the need for HTML/Java/Flash knowledge. All you need to know is copy,
cut and paste. Read more here to learn what the FREE Yahoo! SiteBuilder program can do for you

to create your own unique guild web page look from scratch or with 360+ free website templates.
- The Yahoo! Web Hosting Starter plan will start you out at 5GB of disk space. Now you can upload
all your artwork, photos, portraits, videos, audio clips, and more onto your site. No more relying on
third party web hosting sites for photo albums or videos. You are now in control. Its simple to upload
your files. Simply go to "My services", then "Web Hosting Control Panel" and then click on the
"Manage" tab. There you will see "File Manager" which will allow you to upload and perform routine
functions such as deleting and renaming your files. For larger files, you can always FTP it. (Detailed
instructions on how to perform that are on the Yahoo! sites)

you if your email address is also easier to remember. (ie: email@example.com)

templates or incorporate it by using third party programs such as Microsoft Front Page or Adobe
