How to Create a Yahoo ID And Web Page

Don't have a Yahoo! ID? No problem. Setting up a Yahoo! ID takes just a few minutes. Since Yahoo! is an Internet pioneer, it's made it seamless to integrate email, travel, shopping and even the ability to create your own personal website. And it's all free.

Step

Go to Yahoo and click "Free Mail: Sign Up" (see Resources below). You'll be taken to a registration page where you can create your unique Yahoo! ID.

Step

Fill in the questionnaire on the registration page. When you've completed it, click "Create My Account" at the bottom of the page.

Step

Go back to Yahoo! and locate the yellow "More Yahoo! Services" button on the left-hand side. Another window will slide open.

Step

Locate "GeoCities" on the alphabetical list and click it. GeoCities is Yahoo!'s free personal website service.

Step

Click "Sign Up" in the "Get a Site For Free" box to create your free website. Answer the three questions and click "Submit." You will be assigned your individual URL, which is your Web address.

Step

Click "Build Your Website Now" to reach the GeoCities control panel. The control panel is where you can manage photos and text, track your traffic statistics and use Yahoo!'s design tools. You'll also find tutorials here that can help answer all of your Web design questions.
