Creating a memorial website for a loved one after their cremation services in Humboldt, TN. is something we are seeing more and more. It’s really no surprise since we live in a very digital world these days. With everyone being on social media and having online lives, a memorial website for your loved one seems to just make sense.
Even though websites and online memorials are very common, many people still feel as if they do not have the skill or capacity to create one themselves. However, with today’s software, this is simply not the case. While once you needed to know how to code to create web pages and websites, now, there is software that allows the user to simply drag and drop the content right into place.
If you are interested in setting up a memorial website for your loved one, let’s look at what you need to know.
Select the Platform
There are several website platforms that users can choose from. Most all of them will have some sort of free version. This free version may have ads or might be limited in the features the user can access. However, for most people, a free version will work just fine.
To find a platform simply search online for “free website software” and you will see a myriad of results delivered. Simply scroll through and see which ones look like they will work best for you.
Pick a Template
Most any software your choose will have a selection of premade templates you can use. Some of these will be free while others may be available for purchase. Simply scroll through and select the template you wish to use.
Design the Site
Once you have selected the template, it’s time to customize it. Using the software’s tools, edit the template’s images and text to add in your own. Most software will also let you edit things like the background, the website colors, fonts, as well as the layout. Play around with the site until you have all of your content placed as you want.
Publish the Site
Once you hit that magic “Publish” button, your site will be live on the internet for anyone with the address to be able to view it. With free versions, normally the website address will have the software’s name and then your site name. For example: https:/SoftwarePprovierName/YourMemorialSiteName
If you would like the web address to be personalized such as https://Sarah’sMemeorialSite, then you would need to purchase your own domain. This can be done by visiting sites such as GoDaddy and selecting your domain and following the instructions.
Sharing Your Site
Once the site is live on the internet feel free to share the link with friends and family. You could post the link on social media so that everyone has access to it or send it to certain friends and/or family only.
Creating a site like this for your loved one after their cremation services in Humboldt, TN. is a wonderful way to honor them. And because it is digital, it can stay live on the internet for as long as you wish making it a lasting tribute.
