    newbye, what i need for my site

    Hi guys

    Well, i am programming, creating programs and games, and i was thinking, what things do i need for my site?

    you can see my temp site Here

    i have seen that i need a host that offers good bandwith and hosting space.
    can you give me some tips about what i might need to make my site interesting (etc. what language i need to use) my site is actually created ONLY in html and i created it by searching the internet for html tutorials and this is what i got.

    I am currently programming in C# so i was thinking on using that


    Another question, what is MySql/Sql? i have used it one time, but still don't know what it is and what it is used for.

    mySQL is a type of database. It is used to store information which can be used on your website using a dynamic page.

    I would reccomend you learn CSS first and foremost. Once you can create and layout sites in CSS you will be a pro. Also just for the record I think MySQL is a database for UNIX servers and SQL is for Windows servers. I don't however know if they are coded differently. Good Luck.

    Actually, for the record SQL refers to the language itself whereas MSSQL is the Microsoft version for windows and MySQL is the version for Unix/Linux but will run in the Windows enviornment also.

    Hi,

    I recommend a white or light colored background for your website. There has been studys that show that this is received best by visitors. (Although I don't remember where I read it.)

    first you want to showcase your work in an organised manner
    second if you want a web designer to do ure donkey-work for you, send me a pm of what u want, in detail, for your site
    if it seems simple enough, i'll consider doing it for free (we webbies have2 get each other's back now don't we?) ill put a link or sumthing on ure site as payment, or mebbe we'll do a service trade down the line
    (mind you, i don't do this usually, don't ne1 expect it again!)

    delighted to hear it, i reccommend the "In easy steps" series for self-teaching purposes but i believe "in 24 hours" is fairly good too (mind you, most people don't really master those concepts in that time)

    This depends upon whether or not you need to store any content in a database. A good example of this would be for any news items that you would want to change often. You could store this content in a MySQL database and you would use a scripting language such as PHP to create a dynamic page that pulls data from the database and displays it on the web page. I'm not so sure that your current site would benefit much from a MySQL database back-end though and it might be a good idea to try and stay focused on one step (design/HTML/CSS) at a time!

    Also, just to clarify, as a previous poster stated, SQL is actually a scripting language that allows applications to interface with database data. MySQL is a (free) database program (often associated but not limited to Linux / PHP environments). Microsoft (MS) SQL Server is a competing database product that is much more expensive and only found in Windows Server hosting environments.
