Tell Me More
Right, you've decided to stake your claim on the worldwide web and set up your own website; but where to now? Well, it's quite easy really; you need three things: a name, the content itself and somewhere to put it online. The first of these, the name is what we're going to look at now.
A domain name is your unique online address – you can choose any unused domain name and register the right to use it over a renewable period. Your choice of name is important: it must be unique, syntactically valid, easy to remember, preferably short, and registered across relevant international or local “top-level domains”. You then register your chosen domain name(s) by using a domain registrar.
Creator can advise you on your choice of domain name(s) and register these for you, but if you feel confident or adventurous, you can buy a domain online yourself with a credit card quite easily - there are many companies offering this service. Domain names are normally inexpensive, especially the local, country-based ones (like .co.uk); international domain names (like .com, .org, etc) cost a bit more.
a few caveats
So, no problem then?
Well, no, almost… There are a few caveats when choosing a domain registration company:
For the UK, we recommend 123-reg2. We use them and are very happy with their service. If you’re not into domain DIY or are unsure, we’ll do it all for you for a small fee.
Now, with domain in hand, it’s time to find a hosting3 company for your website.
