Below is a list of the basic information which you need to know before you start building a new web site.

Choosing Your Domain Name
A Domain Name is the first step in getting your site on the internet. A domain name should identify your organization and be easy to remember. You can choose a domain name with either .com, .net or .org at the end of the name. For example, Carol’s shoes shop may want the domain name – carolshoes.com or carolshoesshop.com.

Either way, you should first get together a list of domain names that you feel would work for your web site and write them down. Then go to the domain names section of this site to find out if they are available. The price ranges from £15.99 to £19.99 a year.

Hosting Your Web Site
Once you have decided on a Domain Name the next step is having a company host your web site. This is a necessary step in having a web site. Go to the hosting section of this site to buy web hosting for your web site. Our internet servers are connected to the internet 24/7. Without the hardware, software and internet connection, there is no web site. Hosting packages starts around £5 per month.

Building a Web Site
Once you have selected a host, the next step is to create a web site. A web site is created using a coding language called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). At Universal Medialink, we design professional web sites at affordable prices.
