Free Web Design And Hosting Resources For Your Own Web Site

Are you looking for a place where you can create and host your own web site for free? You may not be selling something from your web site. You may not even be providing a service in return for money. So why pay for a personal web site? This article looks at free web design and hosting for your web pages.

What is free web site design and hosting all about? It is simply about getting your own domain name, hosting and web site design for free. After all, you only want this web site for your self and not to run a business from it. Free web site hosting is probably not a great idea if you want to provide a service or want to sell a product on it. Then it is better to get a cheap domain name, hosting and web design somewhere else.

You want to get a web site up and running for free. Finding a free service that helps you to do this may be difficult. Nothing in life is completely free. Everybody pays, right? In some way or another. However, here is an option you might consider using. Bravenet offers you free hosting, which is ad supported as well as other paid hosting services. They offer you access to lots of tools. You can join as a free member of Bravenet.

Now, once you have free web hosting, how about free web design. The only free web design you are likely to get is the web design you do yourself. However, if you do some research using a search engine you just might find someone who offers web site design for free.

Generally you will have to register your own domain name and pay for hosting as well. Getting a free web site is not so easy unless you decide to build a blog. Then you can create a free account and a free blog at either WordPress or Blogger. These two blog services are the most popular choice and are easy to use. Just post your thoughts or information and share it with other bloggers. Really, this is the simplest way to get a free domain name, free hosting as well as access to free web design templates.

Another option you may look at is SocialGo. You can create your own free social networking site. You can customize it as well.

Sometime you will find that when paying for one internet expense you may receive another as a bonus. The same goes for when you decided that you want to get a paid website hosting account. Getting a paid hosting account means that you will be paying a website hosting service a monthly fee for getting hosting with more features and security than you normally could expect from a free hosting service.

To gather up all the loose ends. You may find free web hosting and design for your own personal web site if you do some research using a search engine. Look at the results you get and try one or two of them to see if it works for you. Free services are by nature limited, but if you do not mind paying for your web hosting service, you may as well look to get some graphic design bonus with the purchase.

Australasian Gaming Expo Trade Exhibition, Paltronics

Australasian Gaming Expo report from Sydney; Australia – Day 2

Today was the 2nd day for the most high profile and successful gaming expo in Australia – the Australasian Gaming Expo, which is being hosted by the Sydney Convention Centre at Darling Harbour.

It’s a key time for the gaming industry in Australia with all the regulation elements, responsible gambling initiatives and such, and most of the big boys of the industry were on hand to show off their wares, with some exhibitors demonstrating significant creative flair to help showoff their latest and greatest wares.

Our friends at Human Statue Bodyart had a couple of body models made up in bodypaint (Anastasia as a butterfly and Victoria as a panda) – complete with wings, for leading gaming brand Paltronics and its latest game ‘Jungle Madness’.

The expo centre itself is huge – 15,000 square metres (about the size of an Aussie Rules football oval) and this provided more than ample opportunity for over 750 slot games aka "pokies" to strut their stuff.

The Australasian Gaming Expo is by far the largest event of its type in Australia and one of the world’s biggest.

We learned through the grapevine that a trip for 2 to Las Vegas will be won by a lucky visitor on each of the 3 days of the Expo, and this is compliments of the Gaming Technologies Association which owns the event.

We understand that over 16,000 people have walked through the games thus far, with those in the business being the majority, and no doubt a few punters, checked through the gates (but note that the games on display do not accept coins or notes).


Human Statue Bodyart helps make Paltronics…

Gaming firm Paltronics was once again looking for their fair share of attention by having a few body models made up in forest like bodypaint attire to compliment their selection of games, including the very popular ‘Jungle Madness’.

There’s little doubt that folks Paltronics knew that competitors of sorts, IGT, were going all out with an Elvis promotion (including imitator), and may have also noted their ‘Sex In The City’ promotional stand from last years show.

It’s always good to see Australian companies such as Paltronics take on international giants such as IGT and promotional models are just one of the weapons that gaming companies will continue to employ in the high stakes world of electronic gaming, and the folks from the Human Statue Bodyart creative arts agency certainly helped Paltronics make a positive splash today.

We hear that more bodypainted models are on the cards tomorrow (the 3rd and final day of the expo) so be sure to check the stands, with 11am to 2pm


Shuffle Master promotes The Flintstones Slot…

"We are thrilled to be able to offer such an iconic brand as The Flintstones and we feel confident that it will take center stage at the show," said Adrian Halpenny, President of Shuffle Master Australasia. "Our game development team worked very hard to deliver a final product that demonstrated meticulous attention to detail in order to maintain the high quality and authenticity of the television series. As a result, The Flintstones is a breakthrough product that is not only highly enjoyable to play as a traditional gaming machine, but also brings the much-loved characters to life with entertaining and engaging features."

Since debuting on American television, The Flintstones has endured as one of the most recognized cartoon TV shows of all time and is still shown on TV around the world. The beloved characters of The Flintstones have been a part of our childhoods for decades, and this new game allows us to play and interact with them in new and exciting ways.

Preston Kevin Lewis, Managing Director of Warner Bros. Consumer Products ANZ, said, "It is testament to the enduring nature of The Flintstones brand that the likes of Fred, Barney, Wilma and Betty continue to reach new audiences in diverse areas. Shuffle Master is one of the world’s leading gaming suppliers and we’re sure these fantastic machines will provide consumers with yet another opportunity to fall in love with The Flintstones."

Designed to make a big impact on the gaming floor with its broad appeal, The Flintstones is a three-level standalone progressive, low-denomination product with a suite of exciting base games and attractive jackpot prizes. It also introduces Shuffle Master’s patented new "mini-reel" feature trigger that ignites the player’s anticipation during game play.

The game offers three interactive bonus features that provide players with the chance to win jackpots and credit prizes. Each bonus feature evokes classic scenes from the original TV show, such as the ten-pin challenge at Bedrock Bowl, the family night out at The Drive-In and the antics of Fred Flintstone’s lovable pet dinosaur in Dino’s Dig.

Every element has been carefully crafted to captivate players. The Flintstones will feature themed door trims with matching halo lighting, a unique character marquee with a built-in LCD top box, and re-mastered music and sound effects from the original TV show. The three launch games – Lioness, Peacock Garden and Tiger Power – will be supplemented with more games from Shuffle Master on an ongoing basis to keep the installations fresh and exciting.

Press Release…

IGT Highlights Innovative 3D Gaming Technology and a Star-studded Gaming Lineup at the Australasian Gaming Expo…

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 20, 2012 — International Game Technology (NYSE:IGT), a global leader in casino gaming entertainment and systems technology, announced today it will deliver new industry firsts for Australia’s gaming enthusiasts at the Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) Aug. 21 – 23 at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre in Sydney, Australia.

IGT will launch the 3D gaming technology MLD™ (Multi-Layer Display™), paired with the unveiling of one of the world’s most iconic pop culture brands, Elvis The King®. This new title is now available in Australia exclusively on the IGT bluechip Neo® Tower Top cabinet after successful launches in other global markets, along with many new games and products.

"IGT continues to provide our customers with strong game performance, the widest variety of games, the latest in systems innovation and world-class service, all of which will be on display at AGE," said Eric Tom, IGT executive vice president of Global Sales.

"Our research indicates that many players are entertainment seekers who are attracted to iconic brands and IGT delivers this with our pop culture hit Elvis The King®. This game has been adapted to suit the Australasian players’ playing style. The 3D capabilities of MLD with Elvis The King® also provides venues with a strong differentiator as they look to broaden gaming’s appeal and provide something special for players," said Tom. "Elvis The King® is packed with multiple features and number one hits."

IGT’s 3D MLD™ screens take gaming to another dimension in play. The 3D effect is simulated because the content exists on two separate LCD panels; one in front of the other which gives a depth of field, with game elements appearing and moving between the front and back screens. This allows for new game play options and heightened entertainment.

The line-up of over fifty games at AGE reflects IGT’s re-invigorated game design strategy with the legendary performance of games such as Siberian Storm® and Dangerous Beauty®. Additional games debuting at AGE include:

Black Widow® – a low denomination game with a ‘web capture’ feature during free games for the chance to accumulate additional credits.

Dakota Thunder® – featuring the ‘Thunder Shudder’.

A global leader in casino gaming entertainment and systems technology, IGT provides a holistic solution to the industry and its strength in gaming management systems and new interactive technologies will also be showcased at AGE.

The IGT Advantage Club® System will be demonstrated with new technologies such as Service Window, a small window that appears on the left hand side of the screen. The Service Window can be used for personalized player messaging and for service requests, adding a unique level of service for venues with the IGT system. The IGT Advantage Club® system is proving to be a winner with clubs in New South Wales.

IGT will again be playing host to industry experts who will present a range of topics including game floor design, customer service and systems. For more details on the free business seminar sessions visit

3 Reasons Why Free Site Hosting is Foolish

It is likely my favorite word whenever I see things that truly don’t make sense: stupid. That is undoubtedly exactly what I conclude when somebody wants to create their leading business using a free website. For the life of me, I don’t ever understand why people constantly are asking precisely how do they put together a business by having a freebie website or blog.

Do you know precisely how little this costs to have an online site of your own? I mean a website or blog that your business will actually own. Whenever you are on a free host, you don’t ever own your website or blog. Review the terms of service. Or perhaps it could be you don’t wish to because you are simply afraid of the things you’ll discover.

So here it is, the three reasons why free site hosting for your website is naive with regard to your premier business …

1. The host owns your business as a result you do not. This is actually due to the fact that your free hosting company regards your content as their property due to the fact that you didn’t pay to put it there. The thing that this additionally indicates is the host company providing the free domain hosting may take your webpages down anytime they want to. Generally there are actually no restrictions, as well as there is simply zero recourse for your business. Anyone might go to sleep this evening, and you believe every little thing is fine, and wake up tomorrow with your website or blog gone. And yes, this really takes place each day.

2. Free site hosting genuinely makes your website look like a free of charge website. It says cheapo all over it. It shows potential patrons you aren’t really serious. Think about this; when was actually the last time you purchased anything from a website on free hosting? The internet address gives this away, together with even when you are able to direct your personal domain to it, the appearances of the web page hides nothing. Nothing at all about a business opportunity on free site hosting exudes trust from a potential customer.

3. Try moving it in the event that you ultimately do take it seriously. Number one, why did you create your company wanting to fail anyway? That’s as half-witted as plopping your company upon free hosting sites. Second, explain why would you spend time moving a website as tacky looking as an online site from a free site hosting service provider?

My main thing is really this …

Everyone can have professional web hosting for $ 7.95 a month. For this cost anyone can absolutely have the web hosting, the professional e-mail service provider, a live virtual conference room, and also top quality video hosting. For this asking price, you can not even see a movie, and tell me when was the last time anyone MADE MONEY at a movie?

There definitely are also numerous options of professional themes for your website or blog that cost less than a dinner for 2. One in particular I recommend for people just getting started is Socrates. However that’s just 1 of a field of great choices – nonetheless, a good, and low cost method to put up a professional internet site rapidly, very easy, and for very low cost.

Fine, so I’m off my podium concerning silly free site hosting. Be well-qualified, since this doesn’t even set you back $ 10.

Museum Puri Lukisan

Discover the unique style of Balinese art at the island’s oldest art museum, established by a Dutch painter and the former prince of Ubud.

Set amongst tropical gardens in the center of Ubud, Puri Lukisan is the oldest art museum in Bali. This museum has an impressive range of traditional Balinese paintings, woodcarvings and contemporary Balinese artworks. The name Puri Lukisan means “palace of painting.”

Much of the work at the museum focuses on Balinese art, culture and history. The museum also showcases art by European expats, including Walter Spies from Germany and Rudolf Bonnet from The Netherlands.

In 1936, Bonnet established the Pita Maha, a co-operative to support the development of Balinese artists. With the help of the Ubud prince Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati, Bonnet created the Puri Lukisan Museum in 1954. Bonnet became the museum’s first curator. Both men died in 1978, but their legacy lives on.

Visit the museum’s original gallery, named Pitamaha, to see paintings by influential European artists in Bali and the works by their students. I Gusti Nyoman Lempad was one of them; he painted the mural outside, a replica of the original depiction of local rice paddies.

In other galleries, browse post-World War II Balinese art and see examples of the classical Kamasan style, originating in Java. There is also a collection of works focusing on traditional Balinese scenes and styles. Keep an eye out for the woodcarvings throughout the grounds.

Take your time and spend a few hours in the complex, which includes a bookstore, a gift shop and a balé (coffee shop) for refreshments. The museum also hosts guided tours, shows and workshops, which include painting, dancing, music, woodcarving and batik, a method of dyeing cloth. Check the museum’s website for prices and programs.

Museum Puri Lukisan is located along the main street in Ubud. There is free parking. The museum is open daily, except major public holidays. There is a small admission fee for those above 15 years of age. Flash photography and tripods are prohibited. Most artworks have signs in English.

I am in the midst of designing a brand new website that will serve as the future home of my photography. I’ll announce more about this site and post some sneak previews of its new look (I’m rather proud of it) over the next few weeks, but you can expect that it will launch sometime in early September. That being said, I want to do my best to transition from one site to the next seamlessly. I will continue to post along with Annie on a daily basis here on tWp with fresh reminders for you to ALSO bookmark my new website after its launched. I have considered doing a drawing for a free print to those who tweet, subscribe and otherwise help me spread the word when the time comes. I really do hope you’ll follow me to the new website.

I should take a moment to mention why I am transitioning from one site to the next. This website has served as a vital distraction for the past year and a half or so. Over the course of all those daily posts, you might have noticed that Annie, Mike and I were scattered from one path and place to the next. tWp has, naturally, stayed a relatively constant commodity in the meantime, a daily photoblog that is irrevocably branded "Chicago." When I first mentioned I would be moving to the left coast, many folks asked me what I would do about tWp – would it become the foggy pixel, would it be the California pixel. In reality, my relationship to photography has changed fundamentally for the better and I want to share that new viewpoint and deepened understanding via a new medium. Moreover, I want to manage hosting, design and all that other background BS that gives a control freak like me the stranglehold I desire. One of my principle concerns in transitioning is staying connected with Annie, Mike and the myriad commenters, lurkers, subscribers and casual visitors. For that reason, I expect that I will continue to contribute here until sometime in October. Annie and Mike I know personally, so I’m sure I can twist their arm into visiting the new site and staying in touch.

More clarification, information and such in future posts.

Today’s photograph is a shot of Rodeo Beach just before the sun popped below a thick marine layer hanging out over the Pacific. I am still learning the right exposure values to catch those beautiful wisps of foam racing back into the fray. More soaked pantlegs, practice and maybe a few filters and I think I’ll have this down.

In this video you will learn how to get free web hosting and sub domain name for your website, and how to upload your website to online server through FTP (Filezilla).
