What Web Hosting/Design Services do I need?
Have a Website in 3 Easy Steps!
Step One - Domain Registration
If you don't already have one, you'll need to buy a domain (i.e. www.mysite.com or www.yoursite.net). You can use our simple tool to check your domain name for availability. If you've picked out your name, or already have one registered with Network Solutions, GoDaddy, or another registrar, you're a third of the way there!
Step Two - Web Hosting
You need disk space on a computer that is hooked up to the internet (web server), or "Web Hosting", so that you can put pages on the internet.
To learn more about our web servers, or which package is right for you, read up on our Web Hosting Packages. Our servers come with the easy-to-use cPanel software that makes setting up email accounts, moving around your files and folders, and other server tasks easy.
Step Three - Web Pages
Make your web pages and upload them to your web hosting server space!
But I don't know how to make Webpages!
No worries. Our hosting packages come with free access to an easy online SiteBuilder - select a template from hundreds of choices, then just drag, drop, type and publish! Try Demo
The SiteBuilder has guestbook, blog, discussion, and basic web store capabilities built right in. As stated before, if you have your own Webpage editor (such as Dreamweaver, iWeb, CoffeeCup), or even just code your pages in a text editor, that will work too. Note: Our server does not support FrontPage.
If you'd like to take your website to the 'next level', or can't find that special template or color scheme, check out our reasonably priced Web Design packages. We also have web store / ecommerce assistance packages to get your new venture up and running quickly and professionally.
Important! Please refer to our Terms of Service - "certain types" of sites are not welcome on our servers.
Our servers are backed by a 99.9% uptime guarantee and stellar support! All servers utilize the Linux operating system with the latest stable version of Apache Web Server.
