By now you've probably gotten a few private messages from some of the SEO guys here on this site. They know what they're doing go with them. Website and SEO is paying off for me and it will for you too.Has anybody had any experience with Network Solutions? I want to get on the Web, but not sure where to start.
Hey CBS,I would second the hire a pro advice, but since I'm a pro, it might seem self serving. The others were right about NS being busted for domain squatting, but I think they gave that up due to a lot of bad press. Chances are, a NS rep may very well stop by this thread for damage control because they do sweep the web looking for just such threads.
Anyway, GoDaddy is as good a place as any to register domain names, and I say a big AMEN to Tinner's advice to register IMMEDIATELY and not do a search until you are ready. Also DO NOT register domains and host with the same company. Choose a different source for each.
No offense, Amelia, but free places like weebly are very unprofessional. At $10 a year for a domain and $7 a month or less for hosting, it's very inexpensive. It's difficult to be taken seriously as a business if you don't have your own domain and hosting. I advocate a custom web site too, but then again, I'll let others here who are not web designers give that advice.
Rudy, it looks like it took me a little while to see your question, but it doesn't help that I've been gone from here for several days.Hey CBS,
Sounds like you know what your talking about, when were talking about websites and hosting companies. I got my domain name from Network Solutions, and i was thinking about using them to host. I also was thinking about using there website to help me build my website. Is this not a good idea? If not....who would you recommend i use to host my site and build my website? I would like to pay someone to build my site, but my budget doesn't allow me. So i was told that if i use someone like network solutions or godaddy to build my website that it would be easy for me to do myself. What would you recommend is best for me? I'm not trying to build a high tech website...it's just going to be a construction website. I appreciate your feed back!!!!!
Rather than redoing something I typed a long time ago, here is a non-technical answer to that question.what exactly is a domain name and what & how do you use it ?
I recommend private. GoDaddy will try to sell you several extras you don't need when registering a domain name, but this is one option I do recommend.do you register it public or private ? came up on godaddy ?
