A. You need a domain name! —>Click Here to Learn More<—

B. If you want to do anything with it, you’ll need Hosting! —>Click Here to Learn More<—

C. Webpage Design Options

  1. WordPress (Easiest, Cheapest IMHO) –>Click Here to Learn More<—
  2. DIY HTML (If you don’t know what these two acronyms are–this option is NOT for you!)
  3. Get someone to do it for you for free. Nerdy kid next door, student that needs a project, crazy ex-girlfriend/boyfriend that is trying to win you back (kidding…maybe not).
  4. Hire a web design professional.

D. Full Disclosure: I personally use GoDaddy.com. It is NOT the absolute cheapest, but I believe that their price is fair. Plus, their support team is domestic. I have used “el cheapo” options that only provide service via e-mail and have long response times. GoDaddy has 24/7 support and it is always been excellent. The only fault that I have ever found with GoDaddy is that they will try to up-sell you a lot and they use semi-dressed women on their tv and internet commercials.
