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
- WordPress (Easiest, Cheapest IMHO) –>Click Here to Learn More<—
- DIY HTML (If you don’t know what these two acronyms are–this option is NOT for you!)
- 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).
- 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.
