    Yeah, I think that it is one of reasons why there's so much junk out there, but it's still pretty much the reality of the situation.

    I really liked what you just said, but isn't that the reason why a lot of these crappy website builders exist? (eg: Godaddy website builder, wix, weebly, e.t.c.). I do see your point...

    I think it is by and large assumed that just about any designer submitting a resume is occasionally putting in extra time doing freelance here and there.

  • domain names?

    I recently asked about whether or not one need to know code in order to be a web designer. Now I have another question. the other day in my design class we were learning dreamweaver. it seems once you save your project in dreamweaver it posts it on the web. Correct? heres my question, if thats true. then, does a domain name have to be purchased? or how does all that work?

    If you want your own domain name, you need to register a url. This costs $20-30 per year. Many urls come with free email addresses. You also need to purchase a host to upload your files to unless you use a free hosting site. Free hosts have limited space but can be a good option when you just starting out.

    Both url and hosting is charged by the month or year. So it's not just a one time payment.

    I have registered 3 urls and no hosting (I use a free host for my portfolio).
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      Dreamweaver doesnt post it on the web. You can view it in a browser, but a browser =/= internet.

      As buda said, get a host and domain name, then you'll need to point the domain name to the servers (the domain name provider will have instructions on that).
