If i buy a webserver how do i make a website?

i am think of starting a small home-based online business, i will buy a server, but do i need a web host, or do i register a domain and point it at my server?
If i buy a webserver how do i make a website?
If you need a domain (register a web site name) and hosting look at the following link.


Free domain, free hosting. No strings.

If i buy a webserver how do i make a website?
I don%26#039;t mean any disrespect at all, so please don%26#039;t take any. However, if you don%26#039;t already know how to register a domain and point it at a server, you really shouldn%26#039;t be buying a webserver. If you want to put up a website, even a complicated website with lots of pages, maybe e-commerce stuff, etc, all you need is a %26quot;virtual webserver%26quot;. That means for a small price you rent space on someone else%26#039;s webserver and build your webpage there. When you register for a virtual server, many companies can also take care of the domain registration and pointing of the name servers all at one time. Try www.godaddy.com. Their prices are reasonable and they offer all-in-one solutions and technical support to help you get things up and running.
Reply:You need to do both: purchase a domain name and purchase hosting.





Domain names will cost between five and twenty dollars depending on the registrar. I recommend GoDaddy which costs less than ten dollars.





Hosting plans start at less than ten dollars per month.





Once you have purchased both a domain name and hosting plan, you point your domain name to the server on which your hosting resides.

Reply:You can get hosting so cheap these days it wouldn%26#039;t be worth it to buy your own server. Try looking at http://www.dakotawebhosting.com for domain registration and hosting.

I am starting a website, and I want it to be a cooperative effort of talented web designers; how do I find 'em

The website will be a comprehensive, one-stop resource for small to medium sized US companies wishing to reach out to world /global markets.Our site will serve as a virtual %26quot;export division%26quot; for our clients, and we will create and manage a dedicated export website for each of our clients for this purpose. We will be able to refer a great deal of business to the designers, SEOs, webmasters, artists, fulfillment services, e-commerce pros, hosting organizations and other web and e-commerce service provides due to our captive relationship with a growing number of clients. In effect, our website will be a profitable, real-time showcasing mechanism for creative, competent, aggressive web professionals who participate in the creation and operation of our %26quot;master%26quot; website. I am certainly amenable to using a number of professionals as part of a cooperative development team. This website, although rather complex, will be a dazzler, as it must. I seek true artists, visionaries and technologists!

You could post this as a project on some of the online sites such as elance.com, guru.com, ifreelance.com or even craigslist.org. These are great resources for finding web designers, programmers etc.

That would be cool, since I%26#039;m creative and artsy, but I am not a webdesigner. Wish I was.

Seriously - if you have the capital I would look into a recruitment company. They%26#039;ve already got all the requirements and resumes on hand; no need to do all the dirty work yourselves if you don%26#039;t have to. Be aware that recruitment companies are the real deal, if you%26#039;re not incorporated and able to pay them up front they%26#039;re not even going to thank you for trying as you%26#039;re escorted from the building.





If you don%26#039;t have the capital... well... get used to sorting through piles and piles of crappy websites. Your only real option is to post %26#039;web designers needed%26#039; ads in every available niche and then wade through the volumes of responses for the occasional gem.





Good luck!
Reply:First, for me, you must be an American(in America). I don%26#039;t work with foreigners. Too hard to deal with because I%26#039;m not calling international and I like talking on the phone with the people I work with, and there is no jurisdiction if they scam me. Really, I%26#039;d rather work in person, but it%26#039;s hard to find that without moving.





Then, I must know what your skills are and what is the first project you would like to undertake?





And finally, I will mention that I%26#039;m working on a web-based subscription game and looking for such a conglomeration of talent and partnership.

Think running a web server on a home DSL line is a good idea?

I use a popular dsl distributor that blocks port 80. However, I%26#039;ve been using port re-directing. Its worked great so far for my small sites. But do you think a dsl line is good enough to host business sites? Are there any laws against it,, etc....
Think running a web server on a home DSL line is a good idea?
There are no laws against it, but chances are if you read your ISP%26#039;s policies it%26#039;s prohibited by them. So if they catch you then they could terminate your service.





Beyond that, it%26#039;s not a great idea anyhow. Maybe you only get a few hits a day and that%26#039;s fine for now, but I did this long ago and had a single popular link go up and my connection was unusable and my server crashed. Plus, hosting accounts start at around $3 a month for the basics. You%26#039;ll get far more than what you%26#039;d have at home and you%26#039;ll free up all the traffic on your DSL line.





Besides, servers are targeted for viruses far more than personal machines and even basic bot crawling can suck up a lot of bandwidth on your line.
Think running a web server on a home DSL line is a good idea?
no laws against hosting a server using DSL. It really depends on how much traffic you think you%26#039;re going to get to your site. If you get a lot, you may want to upgrade you access technology or host with a shared hosting company.
Reply:Read your terms of service. If your ISP is blocking port 80 running a webserver at home is probably a violation.
Reply:You have to think about the uploads on your DSL connection. How many people are you going to have visiting your site? What is your upload 640k....is that enough to support that traffic.

Where are customer details saved?

Hi there, I have to do this assignment. Basically ive been asked to suggest suitable technologies for building a intranet for a small size business (40 employees) with connection to Internet.





The business is an internet travel agency - selling holiday packages. So far I have established...that The company will require a Ethernet using either a Star-bus topology, routers,a high speed internet connection, and could either host its webpage using a web host service, or purchase a webserver to host it in-house. The latter one is the dearer option, requiring expertise etc..but I have not been given any budget so I just might suggest it.





MY QUESTION - for the booking the packages..i guess I need a secure payment solutionthat customers can make their payment through. If I buy such a solution externally, how would the storage and transfer of customer details/booking work? And where would you suggest storing it - have a in-house database?





SOrry for the Long explanatioN!!
Where are customer details saved?
You could use a online payment method such as paypal to accept the payments. It is quite cheap to use and you pay fees on the amounts you recieve.





To store the users details you would need a DBMS such as MYSQL or MS Access. You would also need a scripting language to work with the DBMS such as PHP or ASP.





These could both be implemented with the use of paypal.
Where are customer details saved?
If you get an external solution, then you need a SSL certificate which is used to encypt the customer/transcation information over the net. So the information will not be compromised. For the storage, I would suggest using a mySQL database.
Reply:In the last few months it has become mandatory for any organisation that stores details of credit cards be verified for 3D secure. This requires an audit, certificate of compliance and a failure can result in a fine of upto 拢50,000 and the removal of the ability to use credit/debit cards.





You should suggest use of on online merchant, these take the responsibility of storing payment details, the will be responsible for ensuring they keep upto date with any security issues. Most will be able to give you a page that sits within your own website for payment and will take any details you need to send to them such as customer number, invoce reference etc. They then take the credit card details and send back to you a transaction reference number and details as to whether the payment failed or was successful thiscan be stored in any database you choose. Though in this instyance to reduce your costs a PHP/MySQL on Apache solution would be ideal. You will also get a secure website you can log into to review any payments taken by the provider and the ability to do refunds etc.

I%26#039;m afraid I can%26#039;t help you directly but why don%26#039;t you phone / email some Travel agents - direct your query to their IT department. I%26#039;m sure you%26#039;d get someone who would help you. Personally I think phoning and asking to speak to someone in their IT department is best, that was you should get an immediate response.





Good luck!

How do I point my domain name to a new host?

I am creating a website for my small business and I%26#039;m not very web savvy. So I got a basic monthly package through Yahoo Small Business, and frankly their web design package isn%26#039;t that good. I%26#039;ve found another company I like better, and they told me I should %26quot;point%26quot; my registered domain name to them for hosting. How do I do this? And if I do, will I end up paying both Yahoo and the new company a monthly fee? I would appreciate answers from anyone who is experienced with this.
How do I point my domain name to a new host?
You have to change the DNS servers to point to the new host and they should propagate within 24-48 hours.





You terminate the hosting with Yahoo and go with the new host. I%26#039;ve done this with a few of my sites, so this is pretty easy stuff to do. Sometimes the host will do it for you, mine did at least.
How do I point my domain name to a new host?
If the new company is going to be hosting your website and domain name, then no, you will only need to pay the new company. The process of moving your domain varies between hosting companies. If they are a decent company they should offer you some free support.





If you need help designing a website, check craigslist.com in your local area, and then look at computer services. many local web designers offer website desgin for under $500, and they will deal with the setup usually.
Reply:You need to go to the domain registrar%26#039;s dns settings and change the entries for your server to the new server address. If you have the domain registered with yahoo you may need to find another registrar when you take the site away from them and there may be a transfer charge to pay.
Reply:Domain Transfer. All the Registrars have got detailed description on how to transfer from somebody else to their hosting.





Your domain transfer will not succeed unless you unlock the domain, remove privacy, set up a valid administrative email, and apply the correct authorization code(for .com, .net, .org, .biz, .us. or .info names).





To Authorize a Domain Transfer to Your Account


Log in to your Account Manager.


From the Domain Names menu, select Manage Domains. The Domain Control Center opens.


In your folder list, click Pending Transfers.


Click the Authorization button and select Begin Transfer Authorization from the list. The Authorization button is located in the right corner of the toolbar.


In the Transfer Authorization section, enter your Transaction ID and Security Code from the email notification you received regarding this transfer and click Continue.


If applicable, enter your Authorization Code that you received from the current Registrar and click Continue.

Heart Internet: reselling hosting space and template websites, does it make money?

has anyone made big money from reselling heart internet or equivilent websites using their web builder plus software? I am looking to work as a web designer for local small to medium businesses. Also, if anybody is, how much are you charging for the monthly hosting?





Thank you very much.





Mr T
Heart Internet: reselling hosting space and template websites, does it make money?
Just selling layouts (no back end coding) is by no means going to provide enough money.





Hosting, varies from company to company, and it also depends on the facilities provided. I pay around 21euro/year (domain name included).





As for web design: if you design a php powered e-commerce website with around 5 pages, you can charge around 150 euro.





But just the client side coding (HTML , CSS and Javascript) is not enough to be payed decently.
Heart Internet: reselling hosting space and template websites, does it make money?
Reselling others products without you in the chain eg, the product in your hand and you collect the cash means that you have to take the company%26#039;s word for the sales it gets.





BTW templates are what puts developers out of work.
