My assumption here is that you will be working with your group through your group conscience meetings. This will take time, so please read all I've got here as it will make it easier to get where you want to be. Registration link is way down there at the bottom of this page.
Your home group must have a domain name in order to have a website. For our purposes here I am requiring that your domain ownership info be hidden from the public by domain privacy. If your group does not have a domain name, you can pick up a .org with privacy for ~$23 or a .com with privacy for ~$17 for a year from https://1912webworks.com
Fair Disclaimer: 1912webworks.com is my business name. If you buy a domain through my company I will make a little bit of money off that purchase. No matter where you buy your domain SOMEONE will make money ... it just so happens that with 1912webworks.com you get the lowest possible prices, and I make a couple of dollars off the transaction.
You don't have to buy a domain through me - of course - but you will need your own domain name, and the domain must have private registration. Domain Privacy reflects the spirit of anonymity. "Who owns this domain" should not point to a single person, and domain privacy fulfills that role.
Some info about domain names: no you do not have to use a .ORG! People still think that, but there ain't no rule and .COM domains are cheaper. Do NOT use a .US because that registry doesn't allow domain privacy. Sorry, but no privacy is unacceptable for this purpose. Your actual name part (before the dot) should be reflective of who you are, so perhaps your group's actual name is available? If not something like citynameaa.org? AA's guidelines aren't very helpful, although they do seem to indicate they don't have a problem with "aa" in our domain names. Avoid using trademarked terms in a domain name! "Fair Use" is a defense, which means someone has to sue you before you find out if your use is deemed 'fair' ...
If you don't have a domain name, you can probably just search at my business site to see if the domain.tld you want is available. If it is then you can use it here as if you own it, then your group can decide if they want to buy it. No cost or loss in trying eh?
Registration here is completely free and carries no obligation going forward. You will get the full-featured product to check out and see if it works for your needs, and your group members will be able to see what you've put together so they can make an informed decision.
The registration process requires your first admin info, and you have the chance to get a head start on filling in all the details about your group. I highly recommend doing that because - just gonna be honest about it - it'll make you hate all the forms I got inside a little bit less when you first login. Seriously: there's a lot of forms waiting for you when you first login. Doing the "head start" stuff is (a) simple and (b) gives you a jump on some of the worst parts to get through. ESPECIALLY your meeting location full postal address - I pass that through google to get a bunch of data we need to make your site work best.
As a web admin, it is assumed you are also a group member. You will be able to invite 2 other people to serve as web admins, and they too will also be added as group members. When you invite someone as a member they are not also web admins. I hope that makes sense ... up to 3 people can be both admin and member, with admin being a service position you can rotate out of.
If you can register then you can build and maintain your home group's website :) Seriously: it is just a few forms that have info you get to fill out. Each step of the way there is an explanation of what is expected in the different boxes. Most of the stuff will be super-obvious
THAT is enough information to create a fully functional website. No need to update all the time, although you will have that ability if things change.
There is almost always more info we could give the newcomer or visitor, and I've tried to roll that all into one nice website maker package.
There is a wee bit more than that, but this is the idea: tell the forms what you know and let the software do the rest.
Finally, you can consider inviting group members to participate in your group's online presence. Of course it isn't required because truly there is only one requirement for membership right? So online just adds another way to work together as a group :)
Assuming your group finds this useful and desirable we'll work together to get your domain pointing to the hosting.
If nameservers and IP addresses and updating DNS sounds like too much to do, don't worry: I'll be able to help you out with it in most cases. Especially if you bought your domain through 1912webworks.com since that is actually me :) I've been doing this web stuff for a heck of a long time now so no matter where you buy your domain I'll probably be able to get you through it ...
There are always "terms and stuff" in online things, and this site is no different. Well ... maybe a wee bit different :) Check out the Terms, Conditions, Policies & Stuff page, and please share that link with your group members.
Feature development is subject to a 'group conscience' type of process involving web admins from all paid hosting sites. Most of the time in reality that means I think of something cool we can do, then ask if there is any reason that it would go against either principles or traditions.
So that's pretty much it. It's a website maker for AA groups. It makes a simple site so newcomers and visitors can find you, and it gives a place online where your members can do simple stuff.
