I've always only done website design, then dropped the design off with my boss in dreamweaver and called it a day. however now i have an uncle who want's me to create a site for his business. I've got the basic design of the site down, but I have no idea how to put it up on the web. how exactly does one go about buying webspace and what are some reputable people to buy it from? Thanks alot for the help.

Is it just a simple Website or do you need cold fusion, a database, or something fancy?

If it is just a website - html and flash pages most any host will do. Just as you build a site on your computer, you will basically take that structure and copy it (ftp) to the remote server. Dreamweaver has a nice tool do to updates. Just have your start page named index and you are pretty much set.

You will have to buy a domain name - $17 at domainmonger.com and then you will have to tell them where to point the URL - which depends on your server people.

I recommend a company called Web First - WebFirst.com they have packages that start at $350 for the year. I am sure you could find something cheaper around. However, these people are good, reliable, and have over 99.9% uptime.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

all he wants is a simple website, somewhere for his customers to find info and drop an e-mail. nothing complicated at all. I guess i'm really just in need of a domain name and someone to host it.

Check out www.webfirst.com and have a look at their NT Value PLan - $50 setup, $300/year and then $17 for the domain should get you up and running.

You can pay with a credit card month by month for $35.

Check with the site owner to see if they have a high speed line setup. They might just have gotten free space for a website.
great thanks(nm)daneil
