Q: I want to create my own web site, how do I get started?
A: The first step to creating your own site is to get a web site
authoring program. There are a variety of packages available, some of the
more prominent packages are Microsoft FrontPage, Adobe GoLive, and
Macromedia DreamWeaver. Even Microsoft Word has the basic capability to
create web pages.
Q: I've developed my web site, how do I get it onto the server?
A: This is called "publishing", and the process depends on the program
you are using to develop your site. If you are using Microsoft FrontPage,
you can select "Publish" from the "File" menu and then specify the URL of
your web site (e.g. http://www.yourdomain.com). Other programs will use
FTP to transfer to the server. Some will have the FTP software built in,
others will require an external FTP client program to accomplish this.
Please consult the documentation of your program for further information.
For either method of publishing, you will be asked for your User ID and
Password. The User ID you will specify is simply your 1Account
ID (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). The Password you will supply is simple your 1Account ID
Q: How do I collect information on my site in a secure manner?
A: Security is a huge issue for the Internet. If you are collecting
sensitive information on your web site, such as credit card numbers, you
must have a SSL certificate installed on your site, and the areas on your
site where the information is collected must be referenced using "https"
instead of the normal "http". There is an annual fee associated with
having an SSL certificate, and you will need to prove your identity to
obtain an SSL certificate. Although you can get your own SSL certificate,
we have partnered with Comodo to make certificate ordering easier for you.
Either way, you can begin the process by accessing
