So, i want to start a website.

I want a site to promote myself in my profession, but i only know only a little about where to start.

What's a good host? (bluehost?, godaddy?)

Once i purchase the space is it possible to register 2 different domains, and have 2 completely different sites on one account/server/thingy. My girlfriend wasnt to have her own dot com as well. The hundreds of GB's of bandwith and space would be plenty for both of us. Or does she have to buy her own?

Thanks for the help!

Most webhosts allow as many domains (sub domains, regular domains) as you want under one account.

Currently, I use Dreamhost.com for my hosting, and for personal stuff it is fine. If you want more serious webhosting, then look elsewhere as some people have problems on certain overloaded servers in Dreamhostland. I haven't really experienced these issues nor serious outages in awhile. I have 8 domains on one account and 5 on another account (one account for my business sites, one account for my personal sites).

Webhostingtalk.com is a great forum for checking out webhosts and reading other people's reviews. Might want to check there first.

I wouldn't expect to pay more than a few dollars a month for hosting a couple of low bandwidth domains. Good luck and have fun.

yes, i have about 10 sites hosted on my one hosting package, so that's no problem. the packages they offer these days, you'll never have to worry about running out of space/bandwidth.

good reliable hosting that's often thrown around in these threads is Dreamhost, but they're a little rich for my blood. i don't do enough business on the web to warrant 15+ bucks a month.

if you want a cheap solution, i use 1and1 hosting, and have been reasonably happy with them for the past 5 years or so. I got on when they first became a company and offered 3 years of hosting for free

hostmonster.com has a lot of good options as well, and i've heard mostly good things about them.

both 1and1 and hostmonster (not sure about dreamhost) also include domains with their hosting packages so you won't have to pay for that separately either.

hope this helps!

edit. dreamhost is having a sale and you can lock in the low price of 5.95/mo if you pay for 10 years of hosting

myspace.com != professional.

Though with a technological, I've shy'd away from the web site world. So i'm somewhat embarrassed. I appreciate the help guys.

about 6 years(?) ago... i messed around with geocities.

I assume that it has the same interface through FTP... but how would multiple sites on one hosting account work?

would there be a section of the ftp for each site?

I don't think its vaild to have 2 index.html's...

seems like i'm confusing myself :P

all the hosts have control panels that walk you through setting up multiple hosts and then you control them through either different user names or sub folders under your master account when you FTP or log in depending on the host

I'd look away from Geocities and other free webhosting accounts. One, you don't get the domain name for free and two you get ads placed in your site. Plugging someone else's service or showing products that has nothing to do with your site.

This is how it works, at least on my host:

ftp.*.net (ftp account)
|
|-*.net (domain)
|
|-*.*.net (subdomain)
|
|-*.com (second domain)

etc. like a tree =P.

Get a domain, get your own host and start it up. Then, when you present it to the internet (always test offline first =P) get some statistics/analytics on it. I've used google analytics. It's not to bad. I'm sure there are better ones out there. It's nice (especially if your host doesn't provide it, like mine doesn't) to have some sort of graphical or text-based representation of how your website is doing.

If you are completely clueless and don't want to waste time, energy or money, you can use a template. But IMO, templates have never looked that great to me and can, in addition to being troublesome to manage... sometimes they can have cross-browser problems. I've known a few that work flawlessly in FF, but not so much in opera or IE... and others who work fine in IE, but can't do opera or FF. Definately cuts your audience down, especially which kind of audience you want to appeal to.

you can have a domain point to any folder on your server. so you just make a new folder, put your stuff in it, and wammo, just point your domain to that folder.
