Hi... I'm relatively new to Dreamweaver... and I'm all ready to "launch" my site... but I'm not sure what to do... actually, I have no idea what to do...

Help? :blink:

Do you have a host for your site?
Have you purchased a domain name?

To enable a website to be seen, you must have a webhost, unless you are a corporation hosting your own site on your own servers.

There are literally thousands of companies that will host your site and also register a domain name for you. (domain name = www.mysite.com)

Once you have registered the domain name and signed up with a hosting company, the hosting company will tell you how and where to upload your site.

Once you have uploaded the site, it will take a few hours/days for the domain name to propagate through the internet name servers. As soon as the propagation is complete, your website is viewable by anyone looking for it.
