  • 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).

        I think it's Gin, but it could be Bourbon.

        I'm sorta thinking along the line of Cosmo but I work in large format where you have to actually look at a strike-off to see what needs to be fixed. And like Cosmo mentions, you have hours, sometimes...

        Don't take this the wrong way.... but why would someone outsource prepress work? And especially only 10 hours a week worth? And with working full time now, when would you be doing it? All the prepress...

        I recently bought into the cloud for myself, I was more than a little skeptical at first. CS6 or earlier versions become a bit of a gamble considering the unknown lifespans (when OS's stop supporting...

        The irony in the USA is that the same person who would take offense to a shirt like that would think nothing about having one fly behind their pickup truck getting tattered from the wind and elements--or...
