Your website can be designed to include some or all of the following: images, photos,
email account, flash, video, music as well as text.
Maintenance & Updates
I can maintain and update your website to keep it current and relevant.
Domain names (or ‘web address’)
Here are a few domain names:
ibm.com | Amazon.com | wizardDTP.com
Most of your ISPs (Internet Service Providers) supply space for web sites. The problem
there is that as you can't have a domain name, you wind up with a complicated, hard-to-remember
address that isn’t easy to say or causes problems on the phone, or talking in the
street to someone without a pen and paper. So, if you want to have ‘yourname.com’
or ‘yourcompany.com’, you have to have a domain name. As many domain names are already
taken, I suggest you think up several options or I can help with suggestions.
Once you have your domain name, it must be registered on the internet. Domain names
are registered for a fee paid either yearly or in multiple years. If you like, I
can register your domain name on your behalf and we can discuss the various options. Alternatively,
if you supply the domain name, register it and set it up, there is no fee.
This is where your domain name is held. Think of it like dialing your phone and it
rings somewhere: that is where your website will be hosted.
There are free hosting sites, which involve dealing with adverts (not of your choice)
popping up on your website. If you don’t want this (and most people don't) you will
need to get a host. Costs for this vary a lot and you will need to consider the following:
Is your site for a individual? Are you a business planning to do e-commerce, take
credit cards, provide music, movies? Are there email addresses, and if so how many?
These sites all require a monthly or annual fee and have different requirements.
If you select and set up the hosting site as well as supply the technical info, I
will upload your website to your hosting site for no additional fee. Otherwise I
can select and set up the hosting site for a monthly fee to be paid in increments
of one year (12 months) at a time - in advance. (The reason for this is the hosting
sites will invoice me, automatically - in advance.)
