RE: Website

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you do the website yourself I would recommend Macromedia-Dreamweaver or
Macromedia-UltraDev-Dreamweaver (latter has more power w/ ASP etc.)
Frontpage would be my second choice but Frontpage and Word both add a lot of
unneccessary html code into the web page creating larger web pages (code
wise) (== slower loading pages).  Dreamweaver is by far the better editing
software.  I have also tried Adobe GoLive and MS Frontpage.  All 3 are
WYSISWYG editors, some also have code editing ability for further tweaking
of web pages (dreamweaver has a good html code editor that can be used in a
split view with the WSISWYG so you can see the changes instantly).  However
Dreamweaver will cost upwards of $300 (depending upon which version/suite
you pick).  Since you are wanting to add pictures also then I would
recommend the Dreamweaver-Fireworks suite.  You can download trial versions
from macromedia's web page if you want to try before you buy.

If you are going to pay for webspace then you might want to get ASP/DHTML
capabilities (or PHP, PERL, etc.) to allow for dynamic web page content.  If
you don't get ASP ability then you will need to use VBScript of JavaScipt to
accomplish dynamic pages.

I want to make a website for my business. A few questions

I know I need to get a domain name. They are 70 bucks for two years. Then
what do I do? I need to get a provider/host I think but I am not sure how
they work and what to look for when selecting one. Then I need to make the
website - correct? Without learning html, what are most of you doing for
this, buying a software that lets you design your website or do you hire
someone. I don't have a lot of stuff currently, but I would like it to be
expandable and fast so pictures load quickly.

Also, If I want to include photos of projects I have worked on in the past
when I was employed with other companies, do I need to list the company I
worked for at the time?

thanks,
-gerard
