    Talking Got a new website please HELP ME!

    So I just started a website and its pretty basic... I have the time and the desire to create it by myself. I was wondering if there is any software that I can use to enhance my website. For example I wanna be able to post videos and media for my customers to download. Any help would be awesome. Love you guys!!!

    You can post videos and media directly using html. As for software, you can use one of the online designers, but they're a bit rubbish IMHO and quite expensive too.

    I would suggest reading the http://w3schools.com site, then making your own site with a text editor. Geany's good for the web, as it Bluefish. If you mean libraries to use to enhance your webiste, then there's php libraries for practically everything, and I'm becoming quite a fan of jquery for javascript.

    Have fun!

    For HTML you can use Geeny, Scribes or BlueFish. I'm a web guy and I personally use Scribes and BlueFish. But if you want to do content management then I like to suggest a CMS environment like wordpress or joomla.

    Wordpress is actually build for blogging but we can turn it to be a CMS environment it's very easy to learn and very beginner friendly.

    Joomla on the other hand is machine cut as a CMS but one needs to be having a better understanding of the HTML environment and it's workings.

    another good CMS, but maybe medium difficult is Drupal.

    would second wordpress as it is full of extensions that make it easy to do thing you need with a few clicks.

    if oyu plan on having webstore there are plenty tools for that too. Such as opencart and zencart...

    It might be worth asking: are you hosting this website yourself on your own server, or are you using a commercial hosting site? If it's a commercial hosting site, you'll need to see what tools they provide for you (beyond page editors) and if they actually allow the type of activity you want to do. I don't know if they still do, but some hosting sites used to have free or extremely low cost hosting packages but they normally didn't include the ability to do much beyond just basic html.

    It might make a difference if we know who is hosting the site.

    oh yes. not to mention that good hosts provide easy to use install tools where you would install wordpress and the like with 2 or 3 clicks on icons.

    Hi, i checked the domain name, http://jesuslecture.com/ ,
    Is that your site, if not, the reason you get this message is that it's already in use by others...

    Try another domain name perhaps?

    Yes... It's in use by me! LOL!!!! I tried to point it there once but never had any luck. I own the domain name, could someone else own the same? I don't think so, right? Unless they own that particular name on wordpress????
