Website Domain Names, Web Hosts, FTP, Email Accounts, what’s this stuff all about?
Maybe you are one of thousands who still have a site on Apple’s Mobile Me domain and don’t know what to do with it before Apple’s web hosting goes away in June 2012.
Or, are you in the process of making your website with iWeb, Dreamweaver or one of the many other pieces of web site software and not sure what you need to do once the site is done?
It is not that hard but does take several steps to get everything setup and ready to upload your site to a web host so it will “go live” on the internet for everybody to see. This page is the jumping off point to several other pages, each one covering a specific aspect of getting everything setup properly.
We are going to cover many topics here, starting with deciding on a domain name, then choosing a web host, getting your site live on the internet and more. As this series of pages evolves, more and more topics are coming to mind, so additional and expanded topics will be constantly added.
Be sure to join our email list and subscribe to our blog and you will be kept up to date with everything new that is being added to the blog. You can find web forms in the column on the right side of each page where you can sign up.
Use the Page Navigation at the top, or in the right side navigation bar, to access each of the articles on the other pages.
You will also find a list on the right side navigation bar that has links to the Web Site Tools we mention on these pages.
Of course, these link lists will grow over time, but hopefully these screenshots help you understand how to get around the site.
Finally, to make it easier to follow our How To’s while working on your website, there is a Download This Page in PDF Format icon at the bottom of each of our pages.
Click the button to get a PDF copy of the page that you can print and reference while you are working with your site or configuring settings on your web host, email account, etc…
When we are done you will have a live web site on the internet, and much, much more.
