New user Help PLEASE


#1

I am in charge of creating a website for my dog club when another person that had started (was a web designer) just quit altogether taking the domain name we had with him—so I registered the new domain name the board chose and signed up for it for a year and by the month hosting-
Now what the heck do I do to start making a website?
I apologize for being so dense but I did not understand anything about pointing to the server or ftps information in the email they sent
Please help me. I am completely lost.

You could probably setup the site with Remixer in the DH Panel:

Where are you located? Do you have any local resources, maybe a high school where kids can get some credit for helping with a project like this? Look around for a local web developer group at meetup.com.

I can setup a simple site for you with WordPress to get you started. (Free, happy to help, dunno why but you caught me in a good mood. :slight_smile: ) This will get you out of the immediate rut. I can provide info to help you move quickly toward confidence and independence. PM me if interested.

Hi twinelm,

You can also search our knowledge base for any specific terms you may need.

I second the remixer vote here. Even though it may be more limited than creating a site from scratch, it’s pretty much plug and play. Your peeps will be amazed at your website.

Thank you all for your help! I had signed up for Wordpress and once that became active I was able to do a pretty decent job to start. Obviously Inhave to learn all that it does but at least I have a start.
