Deploying & Hosting Your Web Site

Once the website is ready for the public, it needs to be uploaded to a web server.

Register Your Domain Name
If you haven’t done so during the planning phase of the project, this is the time to register your individual web address (yourbiz.com).

Make Arrangements For Web Hosting
Set-up your own infrastructure.
Set up an account with a reputable internet service provider (We recommend
ValueWeb).
Have Mossinger Consulting handle all hosting issues.

Prepare For Upload To Web Server
Set up directories on Web Server.
Set up ftp (file transfer protocol) connection.

Transfer Data to Web Server
Move the files through ftp connection.

Set-up Scripts on the Web Server
Scripts, e.g. for turning form data into an e-mail, need to be uploaded to the right directory on the web server, and have their execution permissions set appropriately.

Test Website
Test functionality as well as look and feel in a variety of different browser and hardware environments.



Mossinger Consulting can spare you from all headaches of web hosting. We find the right web hosting package for your needs, and handle all the communications with the ISP for you.
