    I need help doing this as well HUKDer's.

    I'm setting up a website for our local resident's association.

    I'm deputy secretary, so i have been given the task.

    what do you need it for op?

    I'd recommend Mr Site, easy to use, looks good, free domain name £15 from amazon

    [url]www.yourhtmlsource.com[/url] some good tutorial's for beginners, should only take you a few hours to get the basics learnt.

    Once you have done that then have a look on [url]www.oswd.org[/url] and get yourself a free template, which you should then be able to edit to your needs using your newly learnt HTML skills :thumbsup:

    Does exactly what it says on the tin

    Domain names are not free - and be very careful of any service offering you one for 'free' as in reality they will own the domain - a real problem if you want to switch hosts or if the site becomes successful.

    A .com domain will cost around £10 per year, a .co.uk a lot less than that for 2 years, so the domains themselves are not very expensive, but hosting a website (where the data is stored/read from) can be quite expensive depending on the levels of service and bandwidth you require. E-commerce facilities will also cost extra money if you need them..

    Not necassarily true. I got a free .eu domain from Microsoft - registered in my name! But yes, in general, what you say is true.

    co.uk will be approx £6 for 2 years. I use 123-reg.co.uk for most of mine. Depends on its usage. If its intended for the UK market, then a co.uk would be the best to go for. If its a worldwide audience, then a .com would be better. This is purely for search engine usage - either is fine for any purpose.

    I would recommend go daddy to buy your domain name.It only cost me 9pounds for year.I wish you good luck gould.I have been running my website since start of this year and it is going well but it is alot of hard behind the scenes work with S.E.O design etc. By the way if you need any help feel free to PM me and i can help you out.My site is [url]www.laura-annefrench.com[/url] if you fancy being nosy lol

    tbh I use 1and1.co.uk, and their service is exceptional.. :thumbsup: £6 for a ".co.uk" domain, which isnt bad at all

    For the two of you will need help, check ya PM's and I'll see if I cant give you some webspace for free (well, for a little rep of course) :whistling:

    I may be able to help you with design the site depending on your needs. Doing it as a hobby/to try and get to know more stuff about this, but [url]www.gentlehands.co.uk[/url] is one Im working on at the moment.

    Thanks Disco still needs a bit of work but am getting there. Orders have really picked so quite happy.And yes the colours are very girly lol.

    no problem... always here to help.

    Can't believe no-one's mentioned w3schools.com/, some great tutorials on there. I'll also second oswd.org/, some good designs on there, and joomla.org/, which is an excellent Content Management System if code scares you.

    Cool, though the reason you would use a form wasn't to make it look nice - but to make sure your email box isnt full of spam mail on account of it being harvested on a website. Your choice though.

    Sorry, i'm gonna get my act together, today.

    I promise :oops:

    Transferring from who to who? As in which registrar? They mostly all have their own procedure for doing it. If you mean you actually dont want to hand the domain ownership over to your friend, then you can simply change the nameservers so the domain name now points to your friends hosting, but you retain ownership and control.

    Depending on the website your hoping to setup there are lots of free web engines out there, that you download, then put on to your hosting, then you can customise it to your liking. Saves a lot of work sometimes.
