Up A Website
If you want your own website you need three things: a domain name, web hosting and some web pages.
- Your domain name is the name of your website (e.g. www.my-site.co.uk) which will also form part of your email address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Web hosting refers to the space on the hosting company’s computer where your website is stored and accessed.
- Web Pages are what you see when you visit a website. They are written in a computer language such as HTML or XML and contain the text, pictures, videos or other content that you want on your website. They are then transferred to your web hosting to be viewed
using a web browser.
Domain names and web hosting services are available from a number of companies on the Internet. These companies let you check if the domain name you want is available and offer a variety of different web hosting packages. These packages
start from around £40 per year and vary in the amount of storage space, number of email addresses, support services and bandwidth available to you. At
The Digital Wizard we use Krystal
Hosting but there are many different hosting companies available. Simply search for ‘domain names’ or ‘web hosting’
in a search engine.
You can design and create your own web pages in a number of commonly used software packages such as Microsoft Word or in specific web design programs such as
Adobe Dreamweaver. Alternatively you can get someone to design them for you at a cost ranging from a few pounds
to many thousands of pounds.
Services and Costs
want your domain to be registered in your own name and
want to manage your own hosting but are unsure of how to go about it then we can come
to you and help you through the process. Once your
domain name is registered we can then guide you through installing an FTP client
to upload your web pages, setting up email accounts, choosing email server type (POP or IMAP) and setting up your email
on your computers, tablets and smartphones. Please note that this price does not include the
cost of domain registration and hosting which you will pay
directly to the hosting company.
