Web Hosting -The How To-
Told by - Jester

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Free Webhosts
LIH - Provided by Wicked. A great free hosting site.
A Gig for Free - 10gb bandwidth and 1gb space // Amazing Free Host. Probably the best out there.
Style Hosting - 5.5gb bandwidth and 2gb space // Great Free Host
Nhim Free Host - 5gb bandwidth and 500mb space // Good Free Host
Freewebs - Who hasn't used Freewebs. It may be pretty crappy, but it gets the job done for beginners.
x10 Hosting - Recommended by SpasticMoose, have not yet tried
T35 - Unmetered space & bandwidth - Ads though.
360 Uploads - Video Upload site for Xbox 360.

Starting your Website

Step 1 - Choosing your Host
Hostings can range from a variety of prices and specs. You should always check out various hosting websites before purchasing the first one you see. You can also check out Web Hosting Jury for more information on what hosts are good, and what are bad.

Cheap Host - $7.95 or less monthly // 50gb bandwidth and 1-2gb space
Expensive Host - $18 monthly // 12gb bandwidth and 1gb space

Negotiating is also a thing you should get used to. Put it this way, the host I'm using now, Serversphere, recently up'd their prices to 14 bucks a month. Which is a damn lot of money for what specs I was getting.

After negotiating, I am now getting an amazing deal. He's also a guy I've been hosting with for 5-6 months now, so..I guess that kind of adds into the factor. So get to know your host, and always try and negotiate.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 2 - Setting up a Domain
Domains can also range in prices from different dealers. Domains are usually payed yearly, and should be around $7-10. My recommendation would be GoDaddy. Amazing affordable prices.

Dot Coms, Dot Nets and Dot Orgs should always cost the same price yearly. On the other hand, Dot Tv's will most likely always cost alot higher. I'm talking a good $20 higher. For more information, go Here and look to the right handside. You should see a yellowish table that explains the comparisons of the different domain addresses and their prices.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 3 - CpanelX
CpanelX is a great item that comes along with your hosting. Obviously, it's the control panel of your whole website. Here you can change passwords, access your file manager, setup sub-domains, and other things. Your File Manager is probably where you'll spend most of your time.

File Manager is where you can access all your folders to your website, and create new files, such as an 'index.html'. Now, with your File Manager opened, you can access all of the folders. Your website exists in either the 'WWW' folder or the 'Public_html' folder. They both are the same, so it doesn't matter which you go to. These folders are where you will add your 'index.html' for your homepage, create image folders, and other sorts of things.

I'm not going to go into a huge tutorial on how to use the File Manager more, let alone the CpanelX. Maybe some other time. Wink In the mean time, you can go check out the offical CpanelX site.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 4 - Programming Resources
Well, when creating your site, you will have to use alot of programming languages. Usually people new to websites will tend to use HTML. But here are a list of sites that can progress your way into the programming industry.

W3 Schools - Probably one of the best websites out there for learning programming languages. Very great site.
Funky-Chickens - The site I used to use when I was learning HTML. Very accessible codes for your using.
Hot Scripts - This site provides you with alot of scripts from a variety of languages. Very nice site, and very useful.
HTML Goodies - A very nice site for new programmers in just about every language. Check it.
Pixel2Life - Basically a tutorial site teaching you how to perform certain things in a variety of languages.
Tutorialized - Like Pixel2Life, this website is a tutorial site to teach you how to perform certain things in a variety of languages.
More sites to be added later
If you think a site deserves to be on this list, please feel free to reply!

I don't think he's taking about domains Wink he's talking about GoDaddy's hosting

I (for like, a month) tried the GoDaddy hosting, and personally I thought the support was crap. Everything else is ok, though. But now, I've founded tangerinehosting.com Smile I have a coupon code, 'HIHMEMBER' until Dec 24th, that allows you to get 15% off of all plans gold and up Smile If you're interested, come check us out Razz
