    website / webeditor question

    Locked

    by supz ·

    Hello. I have previously registered a website with http://www.register.com to find absolutely no help. They gave me a crappy webeditor called “My first step site” wow, what a POS. I got 3 pages that I could design off of my site http://www.airhorn.org. Needless to say, it sucked, so I gave up and did not renew my site the next year. Does anyone know where I can register a domain name for not too much money, but edit a site nicely, and make it look presentable….Our local baseball team has a nice site http://www.somersetpatriots.com …I’d love just to have the ability to program my site to look like this without crappy editors. Give me a blank template, damnit, and let me draw! If anyone knows where the hell I can register a site where I can get a blank template to go nuts, please post a reply. Thanks a ton!

      Usually web hosting companies allow you to create your own content and upload to them for inclusion into your web site or allow you to create and edit your own site limiting you to how much hard drive space they will allocate to you for content [andcharging you more for additional space]. Most web hosting companies accept all flavors of web content [HTML,ASP,]. It’s just up to you to create the desired content [with Frontpage or Macromedia or any other HTML/ASP programs] and give it to them toput into your site [or you to upload to your site].

      Another alternative is to host your own. Not particularly hard though costs about $40.00 per year for the registry service and name server service.

      I use Dotster as my registry and use constant time and/or MyDynDns for my name server[s]. I host my own web sites.

      I generally agree with Answer 1. However I would advise diving into HTML, it really is not too hard, and then hand write your web page. A good(?) way to start may be to set out what you want in, for example, any(?)wordprocessor, possibly MS Word andthen “Save as HTML”. It will open up in a browser pretty well as you saw it in Word. Then open the file in Notepad and look at the code. With a book on HTML by your side try to deconstruct the page. After a little while you will realize that it is very top heavy on coding. With a little experiment with your new found knowledge (ie a book on HTML by your side) you will be able to get the same result with as little as 10% of the coding and a great deal of satisfaction. I use “CSE HTML Validator” to write my code, it’s not the most intuitive program to start with but persist and you will use nothing else.
      I hope that may give you a start in the right direction.
