There are so many different ways to put up text on the internet. You’ve got Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Medium, Tumblr and, of course, the way of creating a website on your own.

If you just want to write something quickly and have it accessible to anyone in the world, your best bet is posting it on a blog or a website. But then you have to sign up for an account, deal with messy menus and extra features, do some editing, and finally upload it.

There’s a much faster way to do this. If you just want to share some text, there’s a simple website called txti.es. This can be especially helpful if you want to communicate with people in developing nations. Many countries in Africa and Asia still don’t have high speed internet. Your fancy blog with high resolution pictures might not even open on their Java cell phones.

You know what will though? Plain and simple text.

How To Create A Web page With txti

Step 1: Go to the txti website.

Step 2: Enter the title for the page. This will show up in the title bar of your browser.

Step 3: Enter any text you want in the Content box. You can just enter plain text or use Markdown. Markdown is a simple markup language for the web. You may see what formatting is supported in txti.

Basic Markdown formatting includes wrapping a word in single asterisks for italics and two asterisks for bold. You can also use # sign before a sentence to turn it into a heading.

If you don’t want to do any formatting, that’s fine as well. Just enter the plain text.

Step 4: Choose your custom URL. The web page will be hosted on txti servers and will be assigned a random short URL by default. But you can change that to anything you want. If you choose “anywhereintheworld” for example, the complete URL will be www.txti.es/anywhereintheworld.
