The subject of this series is creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on Internet. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 6 - Design structure of your website”, I have presented to you important issues to take in consideration regarding structure of your website. In this article I will show you way to design layout of your webpages properly. Design layout of your web pages The structure of first version of your website does not need to be complicated. It will comprise a home page, links pages and link exchange procedure page, as I have presented to you in Part – 6 – Design structure of your website. But, still you will need a way for a visitor to navigate in your website from one page to another. You will need a menu in each page containing links to most important pages of your website. So, each one of your pages will contains at least two elements, content and menu. Consistency MUST be a virtue of your website. You must keep layout of all your pages same. You must decide where content will be placed and where menu will be placed. The options are not many. You can place menu above, below, in right or in left side of your content. You can see each one of these layouts in examples below: 1st example – The menu above content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Menu Content 2nd example – The menu below content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Content Menu 3rd example – The menu in right side of content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Content Menu 4th example – The menu in left side of content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Menu Content As you may have noticed I haven’t mentioned anything about title and subtitle of each one of web pages in your website. These two elements have also to do with layout of your web pages and they must reside at top of each page. The truth is that you have only two options to choose from: - The menu below content - The menu in right side of content And this constraint has to do with optimization procedure of your web page.

Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet By Tasos Vasilopoulos Part 10 - Time for decisions - Choose a web hosting company Introduction This article makes part of a series of 20 articles. The subject of this series is creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on Internet. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 9 - Create pages that will contain links”, I have guided you in creating pages in your website that will contain reciprocal links. In this article I will help you how to choose right web hosting company. Choose a web hosting company. There are hundreds of companies on Internet offering space in their servers for your web pages for less than $10 monthly. Most of them are good. They offer services to you like: · CGI-BIN, SSI, htaccess, Cronjobs · Web-Based Email (secure) · Member Operations Control Panel · Control Panel Web Users · PHP4 w/ Zend Optimizer, · Perl5, · Sendmail · FrontPage 98/2000/2002 Ext. · Webstats, Raw Log Files · Built in osCommerce (Shopping Cart) · Secure Socket Layer (Secure Server) · DNS Control (A record, Cnames, MX records) · MySQL Database · Flash, Shockwave, Midi, Mulitmedia Support · And others These are tools needed by webmasters who want to incorporate e-commerce, use databases in their websites and other advanced options. You must select a company that offers: o At least 1GB of space o At least 5GB of download size per month o The ability to use an FTP program to upload your pages o A control panel to administer your website o Full support for cgi and perl scripts o Statistics for visitors of your web pages I have my websites hosted in Powweb http://www.powweb.com and in ICDSoft http://www.icdsoft.com. Both are good companies. They answer my questions in hours. I haven’t noticed even one whole day of download for last three years. Also, have in mind that you can change your web hosting company whenever you want. Just find another one that suits your needs, pay for their services and make changes needed in your DNS servers (see what does this mean in Appendix C of my ebook at http://www.netincome.gr/nm-ebook/ebook.htm or read instructions that domain name registrars include in their pages). Of course you will loose money paid to your previous web hosting company in case you make change before end of period prepaid. Here we have to discuss option to host your pages in a web hosting company that offers its services not for money, but in exchange of putting ads in your pages. There are companies that offer to give you also a domain name for free, apart from space in their web servers to host your pages. For example Geocities (http://www.geocities.com) gives you possibility to get a domain of kind www.geocities.com/your-domain-name, which is not as good as having your own domain name though. Also allow you to host your pages without paying any money at all. But in return they add a piece of code in every one of your pages. This code presents a window over right side of your pages, which contains ads relevant or irrelevant to content of them. They do not offer possibility to upload your pages using an FTP program. They give you an “Easy upload” option, which is not so flexible and fast as an FTP program.
