company service or good must competing in international market that widely
A good web site will present us information for helping in
introducing and marketing a company's product. In its development, all
webmasters try to make their site visited by many people because one of
measuring web site's success is small or large number of visitors.
If you are planning to build a good website, there are some steps you
have to do. There are 3 main steps you have to prepare, among other
thing is design the web that will developing and implementing it in
programming. After certain in design, the next step is ordering or
purchasing domain name. Domain name is our web page identity name in
internet, people know us from our web domain name. The last step is
purchase or rent computer server that act as a web server to locate our
web site page.
This day many party that provide us with server rent service. We can take
it for free or just pay little bucks. In design pages step, we can do it
with by self with our creativity. Another way, we can also using service
from a professional web designer.
Web Design Software
In design pages, we must concentrate our brain at the design it self. We
must give full attention to the effect of design, then to the animation.
Its purpose is to make sure our page interesting and beautiful so the
visitors will like our web site so they will come back and come back
again. And next day, they will order our product or service.
Nowadays, there are some software that rely help us to design web pages.
Example of web design software is Macromedia Flash that can creates a web
page more dynamic and attractive. Except that, there are some other
software that its function is to make current appear design or page
layout, among them Adobe Photoshop for bitmap, Adobe Image Ready to cut
the picture to HTML form, and Macromedia Freehand for vector basic design.
We can also add design effect at our page, like put life impressions at
our design, like adding light effect, texture, and text manipulation. One
of the software we can use is Macromedia Firework to make text effect,
Painter to add painting effect, and Ulead Photo Impact to give frame
effect and design a beautiful icon.
Except design effect in our web site page, we can also put animation
banner to it to make eye catch effect. The software we can use is 3D
Studio Max, Gif Construction Set, and Macromedia Flash.
If we tough the design is correct and perfect so we can go on web
programming step. But before it we need to know how and what program that
we need to build a website.
Generally, web page is build by a language named
HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up
Language). In the HTML language, we can see so many tags which be
translated to a web page by other program named Browser.
and Netscape Navigator are two among many browsers that often use by
people to browsing in internet.
After finishing design we have to implementing it to web program
language.Web programming or web program language duty is managing database
access, form, and make a web more interactive. There are some program
languages to create a dynamic web site, which mean we will easy to up date
data content from that web site. The best language program is CGI,
Whereas editor software to unite all picture and design place arrangement,
animation, filling web page with text, like Allaire Homesite, Cold Fusion,
Microsoft Frontpage. After design and implementing web programming
step, the next step is ordering and purchasing domain name. So, web site
that we have built has a unique name that we call it Domain Name.
Domain Name is an internet address naming system stand as hierarchies. The
hierarchy structure at a domain name is:
Up most level that called Top Level
Domains (TLDs). Example exist popular TLD are .com, .net, .org
and many more.
Second Level Domain (SLDs). The
example is webhostingdetails.com, whereas webhostingdetails is
SLD. The Second Level Domain is a name that appears below the Top Level
The next is Third Level Domain. The
example is www.webhostingdetails, where www is the Third Level
Organization or league that managing Top Level Domain (TLDs) and second
(SLDs) is ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers,
www.icann.org). If we want purchase a domain name, there is procedure
that called "Domain's Name Purchasing". While Third Level Domain next on,
we can make after possessing that domain.
Domain name consist on two, they are Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs).
The gTLDs is international apply. Some xample of gTLDs are .com, .org,
The second is Country Top-Level Domains (cTDLs) that apply in
restrict territorial only. The examples are .co.id, .com, .my. The
.co.id be apply in indonesia only.
Every territorial has naming and register system difference rules for
cTLDs. For gTLDs (domain international) can be registered at
www.register.com. For cTLDs or territorial domain arrange by an authorized
league in every territory. In Indonesia for example cTLDs management
(Pengelola Nama Domain Internet Indonesia).
your domain is expire because you don't pay the charge your domain
will not be seen by your users until you paid it.
Purchasing a Server
After possessing domain name, one more thing we have to do to finishing in
building a website. That is purchasing or rent a server to placing our
web site. So domain name for our website puts on a server which has an
All files and data of our web site will be placed in this server. There
are 3 methods that can we choose to place a web site in a server.
First alternative is purchasing own computer server.
But a server price far more expensive compare with a personal computer.
This alternative may be appropriate to us who has enough money to invest.
The computer server we hold must have internet connection.
The second alternative is rent other company computer server or
popular name is Web Hosting company. This alternative maybe more
low in cost if comparing with first alternative.
The rent's cost at web hosting company usually determine by how large our
web site deposited capacity and its data.
Third alternative is registering our web site that we have developed in
web hosting service provider freely. These alternatives more
appropriate to us who want manage personal web site or small business
without web hosting cost budget.
There are site which providing
free web hosting service, like
www.geocities.com, and many more. Using this third alternative automatic
has it own lacks and surplus.
Indeed from it cost aspect to this alternative is no problem be usually,
free web hosting service provider site oblige us use their domain, and we
can only use their sub domain
(Third level domain) or placing in certain directory.
