The process to actually get a site launched can seem daunting since there is so much confusing sales information out there. Here’s the basic process:
- Register your domain
Register a domain through a registrar such as Hover, GoDaddy, Network Solutions or Register.com. Think of this being like getting a license for that domain name (e.g. j2websites.com). By registering the domain through a registrar, you are paying to ensure that everything involved with j2websites.com gets routed to our web host.
- Sign up with a web host provider
With a domain name in hand, you will then need to get a web host. As noted on our Concierge Hosting page, J2websites offers web hosting services. We also recommend a couple of web hosts here.
- Update name server with registrar
Now all you need to do is tell your domain registrar (step #1) to what web host (step #2) to send your traffic. We’ll send you personalized instructions on how to do this. After you complete this process, it may take as little as a minute or as long as 48 hours to properly tell the main servers around the globe that your domain exists.
- Build your website
