DO NOT ALLOW
ANYONE TO REGISTER
YOUR WEB SITE NAME FOR YOU.
YOU MUST DO IT YOURSELF !

You will use them to change a hosting company selected (below) if you need to.
2. Then you select a hosting company. ( A company [server] to take the designers pages and provide them to the Internet. )
The registrar will offer you the hosting service for a "special price" DON'T DO IT!
Make sure you have selected a hosting service before you call a designer.
Put the hosting company's User ID and Password for this account in a safe and retrievable place.
You will use them to change a designer selected (below) if you need to.

"Can't I save money if I

It's cheap insurance to be in control.
