Website Management

Simple order of issues:

  1. Acquire a domain name: Example ~ register a unique name with fasthost.co.uk
  2. Acquire space on a hosting site: Example vooservers.com or xilo.net
  3. Download two simple applications to manage the basic structure of your website, a) an editor to make or tweek pages and b) an application to manage the files on your website.

    Many domain name registering and hosting sites offer inbuilt website builders. Whereas they are convenient for the simplest of options they are similar to eating canned food forever once you decide cooking is too much effort for the benefits.

  4. Install example introduction page on webspace hosted: See page 2 for sample page, how to make and how to place on webspace (page 3).

    Your hosting may have provide you with a text editor that you can use once logged into your website control panel, but I would advise against this except in an emergency when alternatives are not practical.

  5. Link domain name registered to webspace with intro page: It can take some hours before the internet has acknowledged this new website
  6. Once it has you should be able to see your introduction page by typing your domain name into any browser (Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc)

Broadband Speed

Appended are a few links to 'Speed Testers'.
Speed Speed is really the quantity of designed data transfer that can be transferred over a second. It is varies widely due to type of connection and distance of travel.

Bandwidth: It is best to think of this as bandwidth, i.e. the maximum amount of data that your connection can handle without many errors. For example; when sending an email it matters little if the transfer rate is highly variable as long as the message gets sent, however stability and error free transfer is highly desirable if streaming music or video

If you do not have either Fibre to the House (FTH) or Fibre to the cabinet (FTC) then you will be connected to your local exchange by a pair of copper wires. The longer the wires the lower the signal to noise ratio etc. The built in error corrections will keep chopping the signal into small bits that can be repeated and checked and so the overall speed of data transfer will be reduced. There is a table of expected transfer rate vis a vis distance from exchange.
