Every Lions Club can and must make a webpage

By Lion Dan Uitti, PDG

District Internet Chairman

It is vital that Lions Club make and maintain a webpage. Using the internet, your club no longer has to be a secret.

Try to create a short and meaningful web page address.  So for the Watertown Lions, use "Watertown" in the name.

There are a number of FREE places on-line that you can make web page, but I recommend the EASY way.   

1.  Free and Easy - I recommend LionWAP.org  see www.lionnet.com/lionwap.html

Example - Watertown Lions - www.lionwap.org/WatertownCT

2. Low cost with Domain Name

If you wish to have a domain name, such as www.WatertownLions.org      I recommend DotEasy

$0 Web Hosting

You will have to use HTML or web page software, but it does not use all Front Page extensions.  This is just $25 per year. 

3. Full service Web hosting and Domain Name

Some larger clubs can and may justify having full featured Internet Hosting services with email, Front Page extensions etc.  Here, I recommend a good low cost hosting service, and Domain Name service.  Reserve your club's Domain Name first.  I recommend just $14.98 per year.

Get your Domain Name = click here

This high quality full service web hosting service is extremely flexible and low priced.

 

Here are some things that you want on your web page to get started:

When you make a web page, show a greeting message such as:

The Watertown Lions Club serves Watertown and Oakville Connecticut and the world. We are celebrating our 50th Year.  

Include this information:

Meeting location
Officers and/or contacts
Major 2001-2002 Events
Major Projects

You can get a simple Lions emblem from a number of locations on the internet. The small one that appears on the CT Lions webpage is correctly at http://www.ctlions.org/weservct.gif

If you would like to show the Lions emblem on your page with text along the right side, like I did for the Watertown Lions Club, then you do not need a graphic at all. Simply insert the following HTML code and change the words appropriately.

- - - -

<TABLE CELLSPACING=0 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=7 WIDTH=444>

<TR><TD WIDTH="28%" VALIGN="TOP">

<P><IMG SRC="http://www.ctlions.org/weservct.gif" WIDTH=84 HEIGHT=78></TD>

<TD WIDTH="72%" VALIGN="TOP">

<P>The Watertown Lions Club serves Watertown and Oakville Connecticut and the world. We are celebrating our 50th Year.

</TD>

</TR>

</TABLE>

I recommend that you show an email address that is a hyperlink, using the MAIL TO code. This is very simple. Just insert code as follows, substituting your email address.

Example: Send email to Dan Uitti at dan@uitti.net

- - - - -

Send email to Dan Uitti at

<A  HREF="mailto:dan@uitti.net"> dan@uitti.net</A><br>

- - - -

Here are some quick tips of HTML code that will dress up the text.

Insert a blank line using <BR>

Indent a section by starting it with <DIR> and ending it with </DIR>

Set a section header to bold, starting with <B> and ending the bold text with </B>

Always be polite on the internet. If you receive unwanted email, do not reply to it. If you receive a request or inquiry about your club that your club cannot provide, be sure to answer as if you were facing that person in public.

Tell me about your new webpage. I will add it to LionNet International, as well as the Connecticut Lions webpage. Contact me at dan@uitti.net
