I'm hoping to set up a website to enable some friends of mine to administer their own content. They are not at all technical, but require very good looking websites, but not necessarily very functional sites, in a fairly set format (Portfolio style sites, mainly, they are hair stylists, makeup artists, jewelery designers etc - people who need to have a unique, good looking site, but don't have the money or technical ability).
The important thing is that their sites within this site will be independant, appearing as completely separate sites, say under http://membername.mypages.com, which can then be maped to their own domain name.
There are other sites that do similar, such as Weebly.com, and Google Pages, but these sites have big limitations in terms of the layouts you can select, mainly, you end up with a very non-unique looking site.
Also would be handy if they could register domains via the site as well, but I can do that for them.
Is this something you can do with OpenACS?
Apologies if this has been posted already, I did search, but I may not be the best at searching. Thanks in advance if you can help.
