<noun> – arrangements in which an online merchant website (such as HostGator.com) pays affiliate websites (such as Tanneco.com) a commission to send them traffic. These affiliate websites post links (such as the one below) to the merchant site and are paid according to a particular agreement.- HowStuffWorks.com
Creating an Internet presence is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. First, you register your Domain - the unique name visitors use to access your website. Second, you select a Host - a service that connects your Domain to the Internet. And third, you use a Site Builder - to design and add content to your website.
In August of 2009 I registered my first Domain, in January of 2012 I purchased my own Hosting Platform, and I have been building websites for myself and for others ever since. Since the beginning, HostGator has been my one-stop-shop Website Hosting Service. And, over the years I have "kicked the tires and test driven" numerous "models" on the HostGator "showroom floor."
I have used a HostGator web-based entry level hosting package, a business level hosting package, and I have used a cloud-based hosting package. I have hosted multiple addon domains, created numerous sub domains, and created dozens of email accounts. I have created a simple drag-and-drop website and I have created complex CMS sites. I have built a number of blogs and I have created an online photo gallery. And I might add, I am self-taught. Yep, don't have a degree in Website Development, have never attended a single session of Build Your Own Website 101.
Which is to say, even if you didn't understand half of what I just said, just know that HostGator is very user friendly and very feature rich. And yes, if you click on the banner below you too can purchase a domain and a great hosting service for a great price and I will receive a modest referral commission. A win-win.
But it doesn't have to end there. After all, as mentioned before, I am a bit of a computer geek. As such, I am more than willing to assist you in registering your domain, selecting your host package, and building your website. If you reside in the Las Cruces, NM area this could be done in person otherwise this assistance could be provided remotely. Also a win-win. You get the benefit of someone who has been there, done that and I have fun doing what I enjoy doing. So, click on the banner below for your own domain and web hosting package or contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you still have questions.
