Web design from start?
Question about cpanel website hosting: I have looked at other answers that say research Java, html etc. please do not reply with this.
I want to know:
IF i was going to make a website for someone else how would i approach it:
for example *bob* wants me to make a website, i know i can easily create just what he wants and more using tools like wordpress. How do i go about replying to him wanting me to make one?
-What is the first step?
-I can make the website but what to i do about the hosting and domain name?
-How do * I * create a website for *bob* when he knows the host and domain for his rubbish current website
After i make the website how to i ‘give this back to him’ and how will i be tied to the site if it all crashes and burns?
I have so many questions that i just cant answer – i dont want to spend money on books or courses, just please presume i know how to make a website (in the wordpress design view part of it), (which i do). Where do i start when *bob* says to me for example ‘make me a website instead of my current one’. This is the audience i will market and and will offer my web design skills to local or small businesses that would be prepared to pay £100 and over for a professional looking site.
What i think i am getting confused on is the directory of a website, where are these files placed (the ones that are loaded when someone types ‘example.com’, are they held by the host? how will i edit these files, i know you can do it by cpanel (used by alot of hosts). but i dont know how *i* will edit *his* website , especially if he has used something else to make his first one. Remember i will be working for someone without a website for a very basic starting one that i will re make with professional look.
Are the root folder and files placed on my PC when i edit them (i dont think they are, i think you just upload to them from your PC to host) which means all i need is acess to his domain to make new website? But is that what i ask for when someone needs a website? i litterally say give me acess you your account, that just sounds like a scam. As i write this i am already getting more sense of what to do.
The Domain (bought from somewhere) has passwords/user setup to edit and upload to ‘example.com’
your domain is hosted (by server?), do you you put in this user/pass to access cpanel on the host website or the domain site you bought it from? www.example.com/cpanel to access?
you can then edit using wordpress and save? do i then say to client ‘im done’ or do i do my work offline, check he likes then upload. How do check it is what he wants without removing all his work permantly.
Is the main site controlled by ‘root’ folder and you can place files in and out of this? so i can save all to memory stick and switch and swap whatever i like?
What do i do if the business does not have a website or domain, i can offer them this inclusive in price but if they decide they do not want at the end i am stuck after buying a domain name and a year hosting fees etc. how to i make the site without buying host or domain so i can see they like, they buy then i reccommend the host and where to buy domain, then i upload for them.
Please just explain what i do for *bob* in order to get his new or completly updated site up and running without buying a domain or host (intil i know he wants site and pays) then i can tell him where to get his domain name and host. Also how i work on his already running site (if he already has domain and host), and how this would affect his if i made his new site in wordpress and his old site was made in something else. Basically how do i make a new site (just copy and paste text from old to new) if he already has one, is it as simple as back up old one and start making new one?
Also an extra simple question, how much do i charge for a simple text website with some links, maybe a few extra features like comment section, email connection? £100? £200? bearing in mind i could probably make a fully working site in 2 days if not less so long as information is already on old one and all i need to do is copy and paste text in.
Thank you in advance i am very confused on all this!!!
