How do I get a domain name

Check to see if your domain is available first….

You may try on our website a utility called “whois” that will tell you whether or not the domain name is taken or not.

If it is not taken you then can proceed to one of the better domain registrars like Namecheap, Namesilo or Internetbs.

To renew your domains, you will have to go to your registrar and handle it there.

You can arrange with your registrar acces to control panel administration for the domain so you can change out any information you like for the domain name contacts.

Remember that not all registration services register all tlds. If you need another type of domain name extension please look further…

Who can help me with my HTML, Telnet, webpage, CGI programming, etc?

Your web host will probably not give you assistance for these kinds of questions. Time permitting they might give advice via email on these issues and already provide FREE installations of predefined scripts, but remember, they are providers of web space and can help you with “content” only as time permits.

If you require assistance in programming, there are many online resources that can be of GREAT assistance.

If you attempt to do some CGI yourself BE AWARE that you should not use wordpad. This is a BIG NO NO!! Wordpad has a tendency to leave hidden carriage returns which will make sensitive programming fail.

Get this program called Programmer’s File Editor (PFE32.EXE). Its a little freeware program that you can edit the file and during save, check a box that says “Save as UNIX format” or something similar.

Our absolute favorite editor is Notepad++.

If you have some serious programming that you need done and there are no available scripts that you can purchase, we recommend you get in touch with a programmer or developer. Having their expertise behind them will surely benefit your web site.
