One in every five churches still doesn’t have a website. These churches often don’t have a website because they’re afraid it’s going to be too costly or they don’t know where to start. But church websites don’t have to cost a small fortune and set up is easier. You can even find step by step help to guide you in building a website.
Start by visiting GoDaddy.com and entering the domain name you want. If yours isn’t available then try putting the word ‘church’ at the end of your name. For instance if victorybaptist.com is already taken, try registering victorybaptistchurch.com.
After you’ve purchased the domain name, you’ll need hosting next. Getting the right hosting company is important because some website companies experience significant downtime and crashes, meaning you could lose all the hard work you’ll be putting into creating your church website.
Buy hosting through HostGator.com. Not only is their hosting top-notch, but they have outstanding customer service support. If you only want to build one church website, then choose the hatchling plan.
Once you’ve purchased the plan, you’ll need to point your servers to your HostGator account. This is a simple process that will only take you a few minutes. Keep HostGator and Godaddy open in two separate tabs. Read the rest of this entry »

When you need a website for a business, there are only a few things you need in order to get started.
The first thing you’re going to need is a domain name and website hosting. Think of your hosting like an empty house lot and your domain name as the street address. What you’ll build in your empty lot will be your unique home on the web, designed to fit your business.
To get the domain name, go to www.GoDaddy.com and enter your business name. Try to get the .com version of your website because the .com is the most popular and memorable web address. If another business has already taken the name you want, then try adding the city you serve into the domain name. Instead of BensProPlumbing.com, try registering BensProPlumblingChicago.com.
After you get the domain name, visit www.HostGator.com to buy your website hosting. If you only plan on building one business website, then select the ‘Hatchling’ plan because that’s the one that will save you the most money. If you want to build more than one, get the Baby plan.
Once you have both your website domain name and your hosting plan in place, it’s time to change the nameservers. This will point your website from GoDaddy.com to HostGator.com where you website will be stored. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone! Today’s free tutorial will walk you through how to make a website for a band. This is important whether you’re just starting to get a band together or you’re more established. It allows you to promote and have an online entity for people to go to to book you or contact you – and it lets you build a fan base for building a buzz.
Step 1 – Register a Domain
You want a domain (I personally use GoDaddy) that’s the name of your band. Try to get the dot com domain – and if for some reason your band’s name is taken, add the word “band” onto the end.
So for example, let’s say your band name is Electrochuck (just whipped that up – sorry). If Electrochuck.com is already taken, then register ElectrochuckBand.com instead.
The domain is going to cost you around $10 a year. Just register it for one year. They’ll suggest multiple years and try to tack on all sorts of extras to you – turn it all down. And you don’t need privacy either. Just go for the basic one year domain.
Step 2 – Get Your Hosting
Hosting is important – because this is going to determine how often your website is up (some hosts crash all the time) and how stable your site is at all times whenever people try to access information about your band. Read the rest of this entry »

Setting up a blog for affiliate marketing means that you need the blog to be technically set up with a good base, you need it organized and optimized for sales, and you need to have it set up to help you build a list for future offers.
I can help you with all three of these elements. I also want to share something with you – if you look at the top of this blog page, you’ll see a link that says Free Blog Install – if you decide you want everything set up for you technically, then I’ll do that for you if you follow those directions. That way, you can just start blogging and building your business!
But if you decide to go the longer, do it yourself route, here’s how to do it:
Technical Set up Steps for an Affiliate Blog
First, you need to register your domain. I like to use GoDaddy, but you can buy yours from anywhere. Here’s a tip on buying a domain – go to Google and type in something like “GoDaddy coupon code for January 2013″ or whatever month and year it is. This will give you several results – try to use the codes and sometimes you can save tons of money that way!
Second, you need hosting. My favorite, in case you can’t tell, is Hostgator – amazing company, amazing staff, amazing uptime (meaning sites aren’t crashing). When you sign up for hosting, you’ll see inside your dashboard, what your Nameservers are. Write those down – you’ll need them. Read the rest of this entry »
