Hidally ho all,

Um, the subject title basically tells it all! I've been having a squiz at registering domain names etc and I thought it would be best to ask for advice from you chaps as many of you have your own sites going. Mine doesent have to be anything mega-flash, I just want something functional really, theres probably heaps of stuff I dont know and need to be told but I would also like to know........

Best people to register through?

Best ( easiest ) web page creating?

Anyone want to pop their links on it?

errr......yeah, websites are a grey area for me :D

Thanks.

If you want to get a .AU extension, you HAVE to have an ABN or an ACN these days, and they still cost WAY more than a plain old .COM or .NET, and you have to renew them more often. Stupid MelbourneIT owns all the .AU domains apparently.

Other than that, if you're going to build the site you'reself, I recommend Macromedia Dreamweaver. It's got an interface that allows you to drag and drop elements and visually place them.
That being said, you've probably got a friend that can code HTML in notepad... everyone's got one... See if you can scab off them

If it's a webcomic you're doing, I've been really happy with WebComicsNation. It's all designed for you and all you have to do is upload your comics -

Thanks again all,

I wouldnt be doing web comics but thanks for the suggestions!

I think I know who I'm going to use, Ive purchased a domain name, now Ive put in an order for a web hosting/web design package ( I chose them cus I can do it myself and it was the most dummy friendly looking! ) So assuming my order goes through and I dont totally fuck it up, hopefully within the next weekend or two I'll have it up and running. :roll:

The website should not be far away so I would like to ask if anyone wants a link of their own site on it? We can do a vice versa thingy!

It doesnt have to be about comics, just tell me what sort of subject matter it is so I know what catagory to put it in. ie:blog

And now a shameless plug of my A4 pencils to add a little life to this post! enjoy!

Nice drawing, BMB. I can think of 100 one-liners to go with it, though (hope you don't mind)...

- Poor woman. I'd give her a hug, but I'd probably lose an eye.

- Of all her augmentations, her breast implants are the worst.

- How does she get her undies out of her arse? (Come to think of it, how does she do anything?)

- Quake 5- Amputees Attack!!

-Todd McFarlane team up with Rob Liefeld, to produce their line of 'Avoid drawing hands' toys!


Okay, that's enough from me. It's a cool drawing BMB. Just having some fun. :D
