Last week I posed a few questions; “How do I create an identity?”, “Where do I start?”, “If I’m not a technical person what can I do?”, “How much will it cost?” This week I will try to answer them.
How do I create an identity?
There are a few easy things you can do. To start you can register a domain name. Look for one that says something about who and what you are. You can use a domain search tool to see if “your-name.com” is available, if not try something like “lightbulbguy.org” or “coolsteve.ca”. Once you have your domain registered you can use it to create email addresses and setup a web site.
Where do I start?
There are lots of things that can help you to create a simple but effective website. To get started decide what you want the function of the site to be. If you like to write and share your ideas then a blog might be the answer. Maybe you need a place to store and share photos. If you are not sure but just want to get started then a simple page that says who you are will work fine.
If I’m not a technical person what can I do?
We provide lots of tools to help you get started includingÂ application installers like WordPress, Joomla, and Gallery II. We also provide all of our domain hosting customers SiteBuilder an online wizard to get your website up and running without having to know the first thing about coding.
How much will it cost?
Less than you might think.
For about the price of good paperback novel you can get everything you need to get started.
So what are you waiting for?
