Domain Name Search $11.99 per year!
It all started back in 1998 when I began searching for someone to build a website for me...
There wern't many people around and those I found charged a small fortune!
Not willing to spend between $750.00 to $1200.00 back then, I decided to give it a try. After about 65 hours a lot of yelling "#&^!*%#!!" later and a few oops I forgot to saves. I had my first web page (not site, page).
Wait, what do you mean "Hosting"? Hosting, what's that?
So, the search began and after a few mistakes and over paying for what I didn't need my 5 page website was on the internet! But, no one can see it!
This was back before anyone knew what a Google™ was. You actually had to know the URL (Domain Name) to find me.
Once Google™ and a few other companies emerged, consumers could search for anything.
But, why are they seeing others but not me? "Keywords", so I slapped a few in and there I was on page 1 because not many knew about this. So, let me slap on a few more, amd more and... "Hey where did my site go"? What do you mean too many keywords and repeated to often? And SEO was born.
While I am learning and perfecting my website, design is changing, codes are being written, new platforms emerging, fast forward 2012: HTML, CSS, Joomla!, Dupal, Ruby On Rails, WordPress, PHP, WYSIWYG, PayPal, FaceBook, SEO, eCommerce, Photo Galleries, Mobile Web, Reactive Layouts and it just keeps growing.
Needless to say, I had to do a lot or reading, learning, research, classes, tutorials, trial and error, experiments and when I got all the answers, they changed the questions. What I am getting at here is this is an ever changing industry and if you do not do it full time you will be lost. I have taken these years of experience and created a division for every kind of user.
