DynISys, Inc. Cost Estimates

For Establishing a web Site

 

  1. Web site Name & Registration
    1. You must first purchase your website name from a company that specializes in this.
    2. Once you own the name the next step is to register it with the world-wide internet registry so that others can find it.
    3. Current cost vary but recent estimates are:

                                                             a.      3 years - $69.99

                                                             c.      Lifetime – varies

    1. These are one time costs and will only recur if you don’t purchase the name for life.

 

  1. Once you own your name and it’s registered, it must reside on a web server.
    1. We use Gulf Coast Networking (GCN) in Foley.
    2. The site must be built by us then sent to the server.
    3. You own the name and we rent the space from GCN.

 

  1. The site must be designed, built and uploaded to the server.
