home business opportunity
splattercheese asked:

I would like to learn how to build a website for a home based business what is the best and easiest way to do this? I have some limited HTML experience but its not much and I also have an old copy of Dreamweaver which seems like an excellent program to use for this.

No, Dreamweaver is not an excellent programs. In fact, it’s a piece of crap.

Consider hiring someone who can do it for you. if you’re running a business, you’ll be spending a lot of time working on the web site and not running your business. Building a good business site is complicated and requires some cost for hosting services and domain names. HTML won’t cut it. You need to learn CSS, JavaScript, and some scripting language (PHP) and some database programming (SQL).

Unless you’re willing to devote a LOT of time to learning how to do all this, you should hire someone.

As you may know a domain name is just a name, not a real website. If you are going to create your website: 1- Buy a domain name. A domain name is a name you want to call your website (ex:). To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. 2- Buy a web hosting service to provide your online space and enable you to get your website online at your purchased domain name.

If you want to start your website I recommend purchase your domain and hosting together. In this way it is possible to get your domain for free. Some hosting services offer this gift today.

As an experienced webmaster I recommend BH web hosting which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 3 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them.

(WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get) You can use this service optionally. You can also create the pages offline with your favorite program (DreamWeaver, FrontPage, Microsoft Publisher, etc.), and then upload them to your web host. This is another easy way to get your website online.

My thoughts: you don’t necessarily need to hire someone just yet. It really depends first on what your home business is. If you require a lot of interactivity with the user (forms), you may need to hire someone or you can learn it yourself.

If you require a lot of backend database, then you probably want to hire someone.

In other words, the more complicated, the more you’ll need to hire someone.

If you just want to sell a few products, you probably don’t need to hire someone and just have some HTML skills to be able to get Paypal buttons and integrate into your website

There are a lot of free scripts available and lots of plugins if you use wordpress. I would say a lot of business sites I see today could be less complicated and done more cheaply using wordpress.

A good start would be to
figure out what you want your site to do,
what kind of business to do,
find other sites that do similar things and look at their design,
decide what you do and don’t like,
and go from there :)

You may not need to know that much HTML.

You probably don’t need Dreamweaver

Here you go 1 stop for all. You can play with the website designing and learn slowly how you can create website. There is a tool inside that creates a website and launches on web. Next you can be a good designer since you started with scratch.
