Hosting a simple website doesn't have to be hard or expensive.  In this class, we'll cover:

- How to create and edit basic HTML files using free software and upload them to your web site.

- BONUS: Have a domain?  Learn how to create a sub-domain and point it to your new S3 website to make it easy for others to find.
