My first question is about registering a domain. I am doing a website for my church, and I want to know if I need to register each page for the website? For example I created 5 pages for the website, do I need to register all 5 or just the home page?
Next, when I go to register the domain will they give me the server information or how exactly does that work?
As far as FTPing.... do I need the CC's ftp program to do this? I know how to ftp programs with the command prompt at least somewhat.
What CC program are you going to be using to make your site? Are you going to use S-Drive or another host? You can use S-Drive for now with your free space until you get familiar with the app.
Here's the basics.
First you find a domain name that's available. You can do this through the hosting provider that you want to use. They will have a search function when you go to set up your account to see if the myawesomesite.com is available. Once you have your domain your host will have you setup the ftp username and password. This is the info you place in what ever your using to publish your site. You don't register pages. After you enter your ftp info in your publishing app you test it to make sure it can login to your host to publish. After that create your content and publish. Index page is by default the home page of you root directory. I'm sure some others will post to take care of anything I left out.
You can search and register a domain name and easily upload your site from within VSD. Just use your username and password from your Coffee Cup acct.. It's very easy to add forms, galleries, blogs, etc.
Everything "lives" on your SDrive space. You can log into your CC acct., go to your SDrive dashboard and see everything you've created, plus you'll get some statistics about visitors, page views and form submissions. Plus... the support is much better here than anywhere else!
Let us know what you do and if you need help with anything!
i have some things I need to edit, add, etc but the home page is done.
Just one thing – check out the calendar, it looks a little wonky (text/events shifted to the right of the calendar grid).
Great work – no one would suspect your new to this!
But someone else will be able to figure this out.
You could ask about it in the Web Calendar forum: http://www.coffeecup.com/forums/web-calendar/
You could use this.

You could also make one in Excel or word and export the page as html.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
