Attention OAM Web members!

Effect January 1st, 2019 this website will cease all operations.

All content, websites, and backups will be deleted on that date, so please download any content you would like to save.

Thank you for using this service.

How to create an account:

The first step in making an account is going to http://oamweb.com/signup.html. Once there, you will see a list possible categories to place your site in along with how many sites may go in this category and a description for it. Find the category that you like best and select it from the drop down list at the end of the page.

[Category Selection Example]

Next you will be taken to the actual sign up page. You first need to read over the rules and terms of agreement (if there are any) and if you agree to these rules, check the "I Agree" box and proceed to fill out the short form. The form will first ask you for the member name you want; this name will be used both in the address of your page but also as your login name when editing the page. The next field is your email address, in this field you need to enter a valid email address as instructions and your password will be mailed to it. The Last field is your name. This is simple for use by the administrators and in your web directory listing. Once you have fully filled out all these fields, click the submit button and you will be taken to a new page.

On this new page you should see a box confirming that you signed up and telling you the location of your web page along with the location of the HomeFree file manager. If you see anything other then this box, then there is an error with your account information or with the server. If the error appears to be about your username, email address or name, click your browser's back button and correct your entered information.
