Freelance Web Designing

By darobey ·
I've been designing websites for myself and friends for a while, now I'm getting requests to do it for small businesses and churches. What is the process to get started? I mean, the people I've designed for usually have their own web page somewhere. I was told that I should contact a local webhosting company and ask them if I can by some space on their server. Will I be able to administer 3 or more sites from that standpoint? Should I have the client register their own domain, subscribe toa web host and then give me their account info? How can I do this seamlessly?

Don't do anything for free

My experience has led me to registering the domain for them, choosing the host when possible so that they will have the environment I preferr to work under, and as for talking to a hosting company... most of them will allow you to become a reseller of their services. Your partnership with your hosting company will end up being one of your most important... aside from your client.
