I am asking for help from anyone that knows about buying domain name & building a website? General questions.
I need to register a domain name for my company and build a website (have it built). Here are some general questions I have:

1) What is the best domain register website to go through without over paying or being taken advantage of my limited knowledge in this area?

2) I need a minimal website built (logo & contact info) until I can pay for a professional site to be built. What is the best company for registering & site building service without over paying?

3) What is "web hosting"? All I need is a generic "under construction" type of site built, so when I purchase a domain name through a company, are they hosting my website? Or when it says "web hosting package" does that mean that I could be a web host? (which I don't need)

4) Once I buy the domain name and have the website built, can I hire someone else to custom build my website through the company that I bought the domain name from...or does it have to be moved to another company?


Please excuse my total lack of knowledge in this area, and NO techy jargon;) Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

Disturbed is currently building sites for practice, sharpening his skills. Unfortunately, I don't think he will be online before tomorrow morning. I will send him this link though.
Sergio knows all, but we have the poor guy swamped with work, I hate adding to his workload.

Edit* Actually I think Disturbed just might be available for this very type of work, not sure, but I already sent him the link, I'm sure he'll let you know.

Thank you Sigma! I need to get it up, but am getting pretty intimidated. Actually, I'm more worried about choosing the wrong host or package. The generic template sites couldn't be that difficult to follow, but then again, it would be worth the extra $ to have someone do it for me that would do it right the first time and make it look nice.

You're welcome. He has built 3 sites so far, with more coming. Most are templates I believe, but he has learned the code to customize them. He pretty much does it all. Here is his first one

You can look around. I'm sure he'll be here tomorrow morning.

It all depends on what you exactly want.

If you want a sort of business card kinda website, with some info about your company cheap shared hosting will be enough. If your website will be your company i would go for a vps or dedicated server. Feel free to contact me. webmasterATmarcozz.com

Re: I am asking for help from anyone that knows about buying domain name & building a website? General questions.
Go to namecheap and register a domain name for around $8. Search the net for a coupon code first and save a little.

Go to hostgator and get a baby account ($10 per month). Hostgator will give you nameserver addresses.

Go back to namecheap and point your domain name at the nameserver addresses.

Load your website via FTP (get a free FTP called FileZilla)
to your hostgator account.

Unless you build your web pages yourself, you will have to pay someone to do it (this could cost you a bit though).

That's it.

One other thing.If you have clientle and are pointing them--business cards etc to your site is one thing BUT if you are looking to get internet traffic to your site you really have to advertize it.--ie--Keywords are also important--and good luck.

Once you have your model up and going-get a good webmaster and/or a professional site builder.

Re: I am asking for help from anyone that knows about buying domain name & building a website? General questions.
Can do a website for you. I will set it up then turn it over to you if you like to update as you want or I can do updates as needed for a fee. If you know how to use a program with the difficulty of Excel you should be ok to update with the templet I will set up for you.

Normally 3 to 5 pages for small company unless you have a great deal of inventory to place on site.

Are you wanting a shopping cart or just a site to tell about your company?

I can register it for you and get your webhost for about $50.00 then the $300. is for my profit for labor of building the 3 to 5 page site.

Depending on how much bandwidth you use a year it can cost as little as $20.00 per year for webhost plus the cost of re-registering your domain name $15.00 to $40.00 for re-registering. You have to re-register your domain each year or you will lose it (or three years if you choose the three year purchase). You can buy it for up to three years too but that cost more up front.

If it is larger site it costs more.

I need the work or may have to check out going to Canada like a guy mentioned last night ;-) so am doing low cost offers right now.

Contact me here and mention you saw it on GLP in the subject line. Hope to hear from you.

NVU is a site that is set up for the layman to be able to design a web site. Its fairly easy to do. I use BlueHost as my hosting service and it runs about $95.00 for a registered domain name and account hosting for a year. They also allow for 5 additional sub-domains. Great deal!

Re: I am asking for help from anyone that knows about buying domain name & building a website? General questions.
Thanks for all the help. I am doing more research based on the information you all provided. I might be contacting a couple of you in the near future.

In order to go ahead and secure the domain name, does anyone have a suggestion for the best place to register? So far I've heard of ipower, godaddy, and one other.

Again, thanks for all the info!

Try Doteasy. You can register a domain for $25 and they will host you site for free. Since you're just beginning, their starter package will be more than enough.

Then buy the book by Elizabeth Castro on HTML and you'll be up and running in no time.
