Getting started

1. First you need a domain name and a hosting plan

A domain name is what you type into the address bar to get to the site, i.e. www.dagonbytes.com.

Hosting is what you need to have a place to put what will appear on the site i.e. the pages and graphics that comprise your website.

Domain names
You can get a domain name for free but it will generally be a bit longer and less customizable this way. For a small yearly price you can get your own and it can be whatever you choose it to be as long as it is not already taken.

Hosting plans
You can get free hosting but then your site will either have banner ads on the top of all your pages or pop up windows. If you have to have a free host I prefer the hosting plans with banner ads to the pop up windows. Banner ads are a banner at the top of each page that usually advertises the hosting company that you are using, pop up windows causes big advertising windows to pop up every time you click on a link. They are obnoxious and cause your pages to load slower. I hate pop up windows with a passion and so does everyone else. When I get to a site that has pop up windows I leave as soon as possible.

 

Cheap quality Domain names and Hosting packages
If you can afford just a few buck I strongly recommend getting your own domain and hosting with no banners..

Hosting24-7.com
They offer getting your own Domain Name for $19.95 a year (most places are $35 a year, that is what I paid for mine) and hosting packages that start at $6.95 a month with no set up fee and if you get the 3 month plan they throw in the domain name for free.!! They also submit your wesite to all the search engines for free and the package includes real video and audio compatability. All in all, the best deal around with the best quality.

FreeHostingWeb.com
The name is just a bit miss leading but a great deal none the less. you get your own Domain name for free (www.your name.com) and web hosting for a year for free (no banners or pop up banners) for a one time set up fee of $49.95

Small business website builder
This is the easiest cheapest way to build a professional store that accept credit cards on line. Anyone can build a store with this package it takes absolutly no web knowledge or skill. $19.95 a month with no set up fee.

 

Free Domain Names and Hosting
If you do not have a penny to spend this is the way to go if you want a website.

Netfirms.com
If you want to get started without spending a dime this is the place to go. You can get a free domain name (www.yourname.netfirms.com) and you can get free hosting although it does have banner ads you can always upgrade later if you want to get rid of the banners.
(unlike free hosters like geocities where you will always have the banners like it or not, unless you change the adress which is a pain in the ass after you promo your site)
