their own individual and independent web site

An example of this process, using unix ftp accounts, each group/organisation or individual has access to their directory on a web server. This directory enables them to publish their web pages and files. Each then becomes a user on the system, and may be granted access to some of the facilities or services of the system, for example web stats. Each user has a URL similar to www.company.com/~user/
An example of a program providing community web publishing is VICNET's community web publishing program.
