A website requires three things: A domain name (URL), hosting space, and html files (web pages).
If you have already purchased a domain name from a registrar like Netfirms or GoDaddy, you are ahead of the game.
If you have already purchased a domain name and hosting plan, then you are on your way to having an online presence. All you need is for someone to create your website and its various pages.
If you do not have a domain or hosting plan, I suggest you look into purchasing both at Netfirms. I have used Netfirms for hosting website files and for registering my domain names since 2005. Netfirms has excellent customer service and a great up-time record so of course I recommend them to my clients. With your own hosting plan, you can access your files or hire another web designer to work on your website without the bother of transferring which can be a time consuming process. With your domain registered safely in your own account, you will never have to worry about losing it (as long as you pay the yearly fee and keep your password in a safe place). I strongly recommend that you purchase your own domain name and hosting plan!
Please click on the green advertising banner to find out more about Netfirms, to register a domain name, or to purchase your own Netfirms hosting plan -- which will cost approximately $60 - $100 per year including domain. Do not purchase additions like privacy, directory listings, or SSL Certificates unless you are sure they are necessary. (If you purchase a domain name or hosting plan from Netfirms after clicking on the banner at top, I will receive compensation from their affiliate program so thank you in advance!) Netfirms hosting plans and domain names must be renewed annually which is usually done automatically by credit card. After you sign up with Netfirms (or another provider), please send me your login and password or ftp (file transfer protocol) information so I can begin work on your website. Do not hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions.
If you prefer to host your files and/or domain in my account at Netfirms, rest assured that you will still legally own your website and domain name, however if something ever happens to me, it might take a while for you to gain access.
