Hey geeklins!

I'm looking at making a website. Something I've never done before. I don't understand all this domain business lol. Is a domain just buying the website address? Or am I completely wrong?

Also If that's the case, is it a nod off payment?
And which website is best to use?

I need done guidance please! :)
Thanks x

I've just set mine up using web.com It used to be called freewebs.com

It's pretty easy to set up and I managed it no bother. It's best to buy the domain name from the website as it's quicker and easier to get the domain name showing on your site, well that's what I've found anyway!

best of luck.

I set mine up through wix.com
Fairly straight forward, used a template and made lots of adjustments which is quite fun when you get the hang of it!
I paid something around £10 for my domain name and pay a few pound a month to connect the name to my website.

Mines free too, from webs.com. I like I can alter it myself, I didnt buy my domain I used a free one :( its on my to do list!

It has my pricelist, about me, contact details, & photo albums of my work. It looks neat & tidy. It is linked to my adverts, it gets views & clients so Im happy with it for now. In fact once ive bought my domain il keep my site as it is!

Xx

That's the only thing is how sloooow it is! Other then that it's good.
A little tip someone gave me on here was to make sure your homepage includes lots of keywords that would be used in a google search.
I took away my 'about me' page and just put it all in the homepage.

I find statcounter great it gives you a little block of code to drop on each page to see lots of detail about who visited from where , entry and exit links and what terms they used to search. To get more views have you filled in the meta tags bit and keywords boxes?
