A Content Formatting Tip That Will Save Your Sanity

wwwA lot of people create their website site content in Microsoft Word or another word processing program, thinking it’s an easy way to format their text and links. Then they paste that content into their website editor or content management system to create their web pages.

And then they discover that this technique does not work very well.

Here’s why: When text is pasted from Word into an HTML editor, it really screws up the HTML formatting. Even if it looks good when you do it, you may find that after a few edits, your HTML page code becomes a mess that may not render properly.

What You Need to Know About Website Hosting

A web host is a company that maintains specialized computers called servers that store a website’s files and make them available to others through the internet. If you are hiring a web designer to build your site, they will typically arrange for hosting and will include those costs in your project.

Many domain registrars offer website hosting packages, often for very inexpensive rates. However, the lowest-priced packages may not include all the features you need. Free website hosting is not a good idea. You may be forced to display outside ads on your website. The web host may have little customer support, and they may close up shop without warning. This is one case where you definitely ‘get what you pay for’.
