learn how to get started

What are the requirements to get my website going?

First step

A website requires web hosting and a domain name/URL. If you have both of these already, great. I can use your web host and your registered domain name. If not, I can help you get both.

Web Host

Web hosting is the service that takes your website files and stores them on a server and makes them available for people to access via their browser.  A basic account costs around $120 dollars a year. I can arrange for hosting but it must be registered under your name.

Domain Name

Domain Name. This is the URL of your site, such as www.mysite.com. It is registered to you on an annual basis. I can use the domain name you have already registered or I can help you register a name you want to register. Many organizations, even Google, are authorized domain registrars and will reserve and manage your registration.

ssl certificate

SSL Certificate. You may have noticed that sites are changing from HTTP to HTTPS. This is a big step to better site security and provides for a secure connection between the browser and the server. I include this with every project so that your site is secure.
