Can anyone help me build a professional website?
|By Josh Lowe on Wednesday, June 20, 2001 - 06:28 pm:|
There are a couple things I can recommend here. First, you can try the Newbie Club's product, "First Website Builder" which takes you step by step through a website creation process.
If you want to contract out the work, you can find many different web design firms online just by typing "web design" into any search engine. However, expect to pay a pretty penny for services.
Another option is to use Onvia. http://www.onvia.com - You can sign up an account, and actually request web design companies to compete for your business. This way, you can say exactly what you need, and take quotes from several companies, and that will also give you a pretty good idea of the price you would be looking at.
Now, I wouldn't be much of a buisnessman without mentioning the fact that I offer web design services myself. http://www.dyno-mite.com - professional, affordable, and personal.
At any rate, best of luck finding the information you need to do it yourself or find a company to help.

I wrote the first part of First Website Builder - all the software I've used is for a PC, as that's all I've got. You can get free software for iMac, but I can't test it myself.
I imagine the principle is the same for PC's and iMac - plan, design, write html code, test, promote, but you would have to find software that runs on your machine. Most of the free software sites have some Mac software, but there is nowhere near as much as for PC's.
So all the info in the books will apply in general to website building on any machine, but probably you would have to find Mac-friendly replacements for the software that is recommended.
Can any Mac users give more help?

Re: iMac web building
http://www.chezmark.com/ - Mac shareware
http://www.everythingmac.com/ - lots of links to Mac sites, in lots of categories.
Hope these two help, I'll keep an eye out for other Mac sites!

I'm wondering--- What is it that controls or impacts how quickly or slowly a web page loads when someone opens it on the net? I'm working on my own site and want it to be as user friendly as possible.
|By Josh Lowe on Tuesday, November 06, 2001 - 10:21 pm:|
Depending on the web hosting you use, their connection can be good or not so good.
The customer's connection plays a role also - do they use a modem, is it 56k, or do they use cable/dsl.
A site with lots of pictures will be slow to load. Try to use pictures as little as possible.
|By dreuby on Tuesday, November 06, 2001 - 10:42 pm:|
Make sure you include height and width in your IMG tag - this helps speed up loading, as the browser can allow for the picture.
Don't have photos at too large a resolution - the human eye and graphics cards really can't tell the difference if you use a lower resolution.
And basically the bigger the page, the longer it will take. Consider whether to split a page into two or more if it gets too big.

Thanks for answering so quickly you guys!
This forum is really helping me a lot!!!
I'm really having a blast learning about HTML, and now forms and CGI Scripts. The learning curve is steep for me but I'm up for it!
I want to put together a really professional business site that will allow ordering with PayPal or some similar payment program. I haven't gotten to the point of finding a web host yet- but a budget price will be of GREAT importance.
Any suggestions on good hosting companies?
