So You Want To Make Money Online…Step 1: Create a WebsiteWritten by Gary Nugent
Continued from page 1
You need to pick a domain name for your website - something that's applicable to your topic. A domain name is simply web address of your website. For example, if you're a grandmother and you like baking cookies, you could choose a name like:www.grandmas-cookies.com
You should put a fair amount of thought into this name as it's going to be permanent address of your website. Think of alternatives too as with there being so many people on internet these days, your first choice might already be taken.
The other aspect of getting a website online is in having some company host site. What this means is that you upload all files for your website to a remote computer (called a server) that's attached to internet where it goes "live".
There are hundreds (and probably thousands) of companies that offer hosting services. Many are free but they usually insert ads and banners onto your pages which can give them an amateurish look or create several popup ads that just annoy hell out of your visitors. It's best to steer clear of them.
That does mean, however, that you will need to pay to have your website hosted. Prices usually start around $6.95 per month for basic packages although you can save money in some cases by paying for a year or more in advance. Most include a domain name as part of package. Site Build It! include hosting as part of their package and there are no storage or bandwidth limits as there are with other hosting companies. And there are no extra charges for autoresponder and newsletter mailing facilities they also provide.
Maintaining Your Website
Websites are not static things. You will need to update them, either because you're adding new information or content, changing design or layout, or adding links to products you're selling or endorsing. So website maintenance is an ongoing process that you should be aware of. If you've hired someone to create your website, retainer/maintenance fees may be something you need to factor into your budget. If you're doing it all yourself, then you will need to devote some time to your website's upkeep.
Regardless of topic you choose for your website, you should remember that any website should, at very least, cover its own running costs.

Restaurant Tables – that make all the difference!Written by Amarn Macbeth
Continued from page 1
Groups larger than 4 normally stage business people - Large round table
Groups of 4 normally informal friends or two couples - square or round
Couples - Square
Dining table top sizes are recommended to be 800mm be it encircle or square. Should space is tight then width of table may be reduced to no less than 750mm. If there is room, then several group size tables can be deployed using round table sizes of 1000mm. One of overiding considerations is knowing your client. The restaurant could be targetted towards certain demographic marketing groups such as couples, groups of business people, small groups of friends.
Since most dining table bases are sold separately to table tops, smart eating house owner has options at their disposal. The table base is very important as it is an indication of owners attention to detail which will make all difference in plush customer's opinion of restaurant furniture and organisation. Thus, take table bases that feel good and hold some cosmetic qualities to enhance general restaurant image. This may be in form of wooden carvings, wrought iron motifs, four-legged,etc.
The dining table foundation must be strong and heavy to prevent table being easily knocked over creating accidents and disruption to restaurant service. The table base must also be designed so that there is space for elegant diner to place their legs and have freedom of movement without knocking their shins.
