Essentials for Creating a Website
These Websites Provide the Basic Elements of Starting Your Website

Research the value of your antiques and collectibles at Worth Point

The first thing you'll need is a domain, a name for your website. They cost $10 to $20, depending where you register it. You have to pay every year. Don't get a free domain. It's not really free.

Choosing a domain name is important. Work on it. Try and get a .com extension.

Keep it short, memorable and easy to spell. I suggest trying to incorporate the name of your city into your domain.

Choose a new domain at register wizards
Visit my Wizard friends to search for the domain name you want.

You're also going to need website hosting, an address for your domain to live. You also have to get an https extension to make sure your website is secure. Those same wizard friends set it up for me. It's a pain, but once it's set up you dont have to mess with it.

I have used the wizards since 1995 for all my projects. They handle all my cybersecurity, etc.

Host your domain with the Press Wizards
I think the most important consideration when choosing your web host is quality customer service. When I have a problem or a question, the Press Wizards have always provided competent, timely help.
