    Anyone used doteasy.com to register domain or build website.
    I have registered my domain name with them, but am soooooooo lost as to how to start building my website. I'm sure I can figure out, but some experienced advice sure would help greese the skids! Oh, Eric, I may take you up on you tip for help.

    check out www.w3schools.com and they have all kinds of help,
    i would sugest frontpage (by microsoft) its pretty easy to get going....

    i wouldnt use any "free" webhosting, you have a bis. you should pay for some space (you can find it as cheap as $5.00/mth) as it looks much more pro. and the site will tend to load faster..ect...

    I have used Doteasy for a "throw away" site and they
    seem pretty reliable, but I agree with amw - maybe better
    to spend a little more for a business site.

    My main concerns would be reliable tech support
    (I haven't had to use Doteasy's yet) and the 1000 MB
    monthly transfer. If you have a lot of graphics and a lot
    of visitors, you can burn through 1000 MB fairly quickly.

    I like to hand code my HTML (yah, I know - pretty geeky)
    but I hear Frontpage is the easiest to use.

    As far as design considerations, etc. - download the free
    trial copy of my e-book at:


    You'll have to scroll down about mid-page to find the
    download link.

    Best of luck!
