MSN allows users to create a free website that they can share with family and friends. The website is easy to create using MSN's templates for creating various website sections, such as photo albums, personal information, blogs and favorite lists. Making a website on MSN only takes minutes using a few simple steps.

Open a browser and go to MSN Spaces at home.spaces.live.com/.

Click "Sign in to Windows Live" and log in using your Windows Live ID. If you don't have a Windows Live ID account, click "Sign Up."

Create a unique web address for your website by clicking "Choose Web Address." Type in a name for your website in the title field and click "Check Availability" or choose one of the address options offered by MSN. Click "Save" when you have decided on a web address. Remember that once you save an address, it cannot be changed.
