Create your site

 1) Create a google account If you already have a google account skip to step two

2) Using your google account details log into google sites

3) Enter your site name eg My Website and the a URL you would like eg mysite2012 (this is where "My Site" will be located on the internet)

TIP! You can not change the urlof your site once it has been created so spend a little time getting it right,

TIP! When you choose your url it doesn't really matter what you call your site if you are going to have a www.yoursite.co.uk custom domain later on ....

ISSUES! Often people report that they get an error "the location is already in use" this will be because the name has already been used before.

3) Tick the "site contains adult content" if it does

TIP! Make sure you do, if it does or your site might get disabled.
