Build your new archive website

Whether you’re in charge of a National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) division or are more of a record-collecting hobbyist, it’s hard to keep all the information you’ve acquired to yourself. Share your findings and excitement with the world through an archive website.

WordPress.com is a powerful but intuitive platform for displaying content in context. You can trust WordPress.com to create a secure environment for sharing important documents on your archive website, even if you’re not involved with a governmental archive organization. Build feature pages to introduce website visitors to your most compelling records and use the straightforward visual editor to provide document particulars, including answers to frequently asked questions. Create a contact page with directions to your archive’s physical location and other important information about visiting, like hours of operation. Embed contact forms with custom fields so that visitors can get in touch with questions or inquire about documents they’d like to contribute to your archive.

No matter what type of information you’re passionate about collecting, WordPress.com provides a means to share it with the rest of the world, no coding experience required!
