Hi folks,
I have 2 questions. How do I create a roll-over using netscape composer?
I'd like to buy a domain and upload my site, never done it before. Whats the cheapest place to get a dotcom name from and how do I go about uploading it?
Thanks
Dog

I dont' know much about rollover, but for the domain, you get can one from
https://www.registry...958-42AE-9314-0 for $18 a year. And for the hosting your site, how much are you willing to pay for hosting, maybe we could work something out.

Thanks very much for your kind offer but I have been swotting up and I think I have found the ideal package for me. I will bear you in mind though and mention you if I know of anyone else looking for hosting. :tazz:

gtghosting is pretty inexpensive for hosting and their domain registration is inexpensive too.

gtghosting

edit: forgot to mention this hosting is supplied by this forums owner.

I was considering GTG hosting. Only thing is I'm in the UK, does this matter at all? Could this slow down viewing of the site?

Where are most of the visitors to your site from? GTG servers are in Texas, it would be slightly faster to have UK servers if most of your traffic is in the UK.

Yeah most of my traffic would be in the UK. I think what I'm gonna do is buy the domain name from GTG and use it with a local hosting service. I take it it's ok to buy a domain name from GTG for a UK site?

Sure, the domain name is cached by your local ISP's DNS servers, so the location of the registrar is unrelated to performance.
