New EF&F Endeavor- any advice?

I've been thinking for awhile that my English for Friendship & Fun materials would be useful in US classrooms, where there is often one or more students who are new to this country. It's difficult as a classroom teacher to always find time to address the needs of these students; it might be useful and fun if the student could log on to EF&F for awhile and mess around : ).

For this to be possible, I have to create a website that is not on a social network, as social networks are blocked by almost all public schools in the US. I put up a rough example on Weebly (by the way, a great program to experiment with creating a new site- very easy), but all the files are still hosted by ning, and the way things sometimes go, I'm thinking that isn't the most stable way to build a site, and I should start from the ground up, creating the site in dreamweaver on my home computer, so I can transport the site to different hosting plans as need be. Of course, this adds another layer of work- I haven't played with dreamweaver in a few years, and then I was never an expert. (2 workable sites, one in pure css, couldn't repeat that without restudying! And it was... frustrating : ) ) So any advice on these issues would be greatly appreciated, from how important is it to have a domain name that accurately reflects the site (I have libraryinabox.com already registered, I could do a sub domain, but it's not worth the few $ to me if this would be less likely to be found and used) to where to host it... to how best and most efficiently to build it, etc.

And how to promote the site so gets used? I am much more motivated and prolific when I know someone is actually using my stuff, even more if we form a community... any ideas? Also, I would love someone to collaborate with... either with this project or on offering online English conversation courses on EFL... it gets lonely out here in cyber space :D

Well, that's it. I'd appreciate any and all feedback!
