Attention Geeks!


OK, so the Q man and I are moving forward with some website business stuff. At this point I need someone/company to host the websites (2, possibly 3, not including a couple of redirects), someone to help us design the sites, and tools for me to keep the content updated once it's done. Can any of you geeks make any recommendations on any of those items?

Oh, honey, it's ok - I'd never confuse you with someone who knew anything about technology. It's ok. Go have a bowl of oatmeal, put a cold compress on your head, and sleep until the new millennium passes. It'll be fine.

iweb.ca That is what my boyfriend and I use to host our sites, and we have two domains currently hosted on this server. Decently priced too...only downfall international company, hence the .ca (Canada). So far it has been really good with little if no downtime at all.

Also forgot to mention that for web designing tools - it has some on there but we prefer Macromedia ... aka Dreamweaver. We use Dreamweaver 2004. Pretty decent, if you do HTML you can view the site as you create it... other wise you might need to brush up on PHP and CSS. However this hosting service also has programs you can install, and you can do modifications to the site through the site...pretty nifty!

I found siteground.com works really well. They are cheap and have great support and tutorials for php/sql programs such as wordpress, drupal and oscommerce.

They have ticketing support but not phone or chat support. There ticketing support was fairly responsive (within 30min to an hour).

Using a CMS (drupal or wordpress) will allow you to easily update content on a website. Oscommerce or Zencart will allow you easily update product.

If you don't want something complex you can have a basic design done in Dreamweaver Templates and then use Contribute to update the site.

Are you going to use Dreamweaver?
