GoDaddy

Custom Sidebar Plugin

August 23, 2011

I’ve been actively blogging my brains out since about 2002. When I started, I had multiple web presences all over the place. Several on Blogger and several self-hosted installations of traditional ground-up HTML web sites I had built after leaving my corporate gig at the end of 2006.

In 2009, after Rope Swings & Avalanches, I was kinda tired. Especially at the thought of starting over again. And, I didn’t want to give up on my dream of doing what I love. So this time around, I wanted to focus on introducing more ease and grace into my own web presencing process and my next design.

Yeah upsells suck, but at the end of the day, GoDaddy makes the web stuff of my life so much easier.

This is really simple. Godaddy’s rates stay extremely competitive while providing the best customer support & service around.

When it comes to choosing a place to get your domain name or set up your custom Thesis WordPress installation for your web presence on their network of hosting servers, GoDaddy is the one-stop shop that just makes my web life (and my clients) easier.

Web Hosting

October 1, 2009

In my last post, I started talking about the three critical ingredients that are needed to create a web page, web site or web presence. No matter where you are on the map… small business owner just starting out or big business generating hundreds of clicks per day, each part is essential and needs to be addressed or there can be no web *anything.*

Ingredient #2: Web Hosting

Web Hosting is rented space where your web content lives.

A Domain Name

September 30, 2009

Three critical ingredients go into creating a web page, web site or web presence. No matter where you are on the map… small business owner just starting out or big business generating hundreds of clicks per day, each part is essential and needs to be addressed or there can be no web *anything.*

Ingredient #1: Domain Name

URL. Web address. Domain name. Words we hear nearly every day. But what exactly are they and more importantly, why should you care?

URL stands for “Uniform Resource Locator” and it means the same thing as “Web address.” When you open a browser, like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, and type an address into the address bar, your Web browser will connect to that address and display web pages created by the owner.

Gmail helps me corral my email into one place so I (hopefully) never miss it when you send me something.

Last time I talked about email accounts, only it was all about using the free email account you got when/if you’re using Godaddy to purchase & manage your domain name (what’s that?).

Why I Love Gmail

There are many, many other things that make Gmail cool other than these two things I’m about to mention that make Gmail really cool for me.

Did you know that if you buy a domain with GoDaddy, you get one free email account with it?

Why is this important for you to know? Well, I hear a lot of requests from clients participants who have gotten their tech savvy on in one of my workshops. They say something like, “I’d really enjoy a more professional looking email address or one that matches my new website!” Example: trade in mynde_mayfield (at) yahoo (dot) com email for mynde (at) myndemayfield (dot) com.

So this post is all about getting your free GoDaddy email activated so that you can plug your new, professional looking email in everywhere on your web presence.
