So You Want To Have A Website
(Page 1 of 4 )
So you want to have a website. You have gone on to the internet and surfed but you have no idea what developing a website involves. You are not alone.
The majority of my clients know they need a website but they feel overwhelmed and intimidated by internet technology and why not? Internet technology is continually evolving and changing. What is true this month may not be true next month.
Where do I start?
The first thing you need to know is what a domain name is and how to register it. Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular websites. For example:
The whole address you see above is the URL of my business but the domain name is ArtistaDesign.com. The only way to register and start using a domain name is to use the services of a domain name registrar.
The registrar you choose will determine the cost for registering a domain name. You can expect to pay a yearly fee. The website I use is http://www.godaddy.com they have competitive prices and it is easy to transfer your domain name to any server Ė web hosting service you choose to host your site.
In picking your domain name make sure it is the name of your business or something related to your business. Once you have a domain name registered it is exclusively yours nobody else can have it unless you donít renew it.
Once you have registered your domain name it is time to seriously think about building your website. You have two choices: outsource it or do it yourself.
