It even goes on to explaning how to request approval to use the official Church resources to create a stake or ward web site.
So if you want a site then just use the proper channels as explaned in the handbook. I don't think its any harder than that.
The question is, are there any "official Church Internet resources" available to the ward/stake beyond the current classic LUWS, directory, calendar, announcements, etc.
The handbook references the LDS Site Development Guide
. That guide states "Most stakes in the U.S. and Canada already have stake and ward websites available. If a unit does not have a site, the stake president can request one".
If anyone does know about any additional resources, I'm sure we'd all like to hear about it.
However, you do make a good point. The handbook does say: "On occasion, official Church Web sites may be approved for other purposes, such as multistake projects, special events, and young single adult activities and organization. To seek approval for such a site, the organization’s priesthood leader submits a request stating the purpose and need to a member of the Presidency of the Seventy or the Area Presidency."
