Creating a Website


brady_d

Question

I'm thinking about starting up a small business and want to have a website when I get it up and running. I have been researching for a little while on how to create a website. Just wondering if anyone out there has experience with creating websites and could give me any pointers? What are the best places to host the site through?

I use 1and1 internet service. They have tools that make it easy to create a site. You can also get way into and use joomla if you have the time to figure it all out. It helps make a nicer site, but the standard package worked for me. I think I got three domains for $10 a month through them.

The easiest way to learn is to purchase a web template from a company. Basically, you buy a pre-made website and just imput your information and photos. Very easy to do and a great way to learn about websites. It'll cost you $15 to $50 but well worth it IMO. Just google website template and browse for something you like.

network solutions has a package for hosting for $5 bucks a month for a small static site 1 page and 1 email address.

They have tools to create your own site on line and then register it with search engines, incorporate Pay pal, and a bunch of other stuff. If you get stuck they have people that will assist or finish the job. Basically it isn't that tough with their design model for beginners.

Starter Site

5 pages

2 e-mailboxes

$9.95 month

with annual purchase

This includes the domain name purchased from them. It's a good deal.

I have two sites, one for my main business, the second exclusively for ecommerce.

Lots of options out there and you can get over whelmed. Ask yourself what are you trying to accomplish then do some research on site design for that area. Check out other sites for ideas.

Many hosts have the built-it-yourself feature and that is a good way to go if you want to be involved through the whole process.

You can also have somebody do it for you (check C.L.), but it will cost you and you won't learn how to make changes, which is something you will want to do.

I just used Microsoft Publisher and created my sites in HTML then found a good host (Hawkhost) for the business site. The ecommerce site is currently done through Yahoo Merchant Solutions, though I will be switching to something else in two months.

Good luck. It's fun and fairly easy to do. Be prepared to spend a few long nights working on it smile

Thanks for the replies guys. I have got a lot of work cut out for me it looks like!!!

Sandmannd, For the three domains you got, do you also get three different websites hosted for that one price? I think I will try to do all the work myself, using a template, to save money on the thing. (And I still have free time being laid off)

Yea brady, I get to build three sites. Check out www.riverdansguideservice.com. He's a sponsor here so I can post it. It's one I did. Pretty simple site, but serves it's purpose. You also get around 100 email addy's to split between the domains and can build 10 pages per domain. You can also make subdomains as well. It's a really good service and using their "webiste" builder you can do quite a bit.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
