Setting up a web site

1.  Choose a clear domain name and check to see if that domain name is available. www.networksolutions.com

2.  Purchase the domain name.  You do NOT have to host with the company you purchase the domain name from.

3.  Get the DNS numbers from the web hosting company where you will rent hosting space from.  There should be at least two strings of numbers that will look like and in a similar form, but with different numbers or it could be in the form of words dns1.myperfectdomainservers.com  and dns2.myperfectdomainservers.com.  These numbers will allow your domain name to be pointed toward the servers you have selected to host your files.  DNS is similar to the "address" of the servers.

4.  Change the DNS numbers from within your domain name account.  Whatever company you ordered your domain name from will have a login area.  You will be able to use your username and password to enter your account area.  Then you will look for a button that will allow you to change the DNS information for your domain.  Input both number strings (or word strings) and press ok.  You will get some kind of warning telling you that you are making a permanent change, blah, blah.... just click o.k.

NOTE: If you end up not liking the company you choose to host with, just choose another company, go into your domain name account with your domain registrar and change the DNS numbers to the new host you've chosen and within 24-72 hours, your domain name will be found on your new servers.

5.  Upload your files using Dreamweaver or FTP.

NOTE:  Once your account is set up, you will have immediate FTP access using a program such as CORE_FTP (you will have to use an IP address, your username and password for "your hosting account" not your "domain name".  However, sometimes you may not be able to immediately upload with an editing program such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage.  You may have to wait 24 hours or so for that access to occur.  In any event, if you need to immediately upload the files, you can do so by using your IP address of your new account.  This is because the .com or .net/your domain has to go through a cycle when it is changing from one server to another server. 

You can see the IP address listed below under Host/IP/URL
