    Beginners Guide To Websites

    When you’re a beginner in the online world & are just starting your professional online journey this Beginners Guide will help you navigate & understand the complex technical terms you’ll find at most sites.

    Expenses Involved In Staying Online:

    Before you begin your professional online journey you’ll need to answer the most important question we get asked over & over again – How much will being online cost me?

    Costs can be broken down into 3 ESSENTIAL main areas:

    Hosting – here at Global Homeworkers Club ALL of our costs are kept deliberately at their bare essential costs & pass on these cheapest rate costs to you!

    Domain INITITAL Purchase PLUS ANNUAL RENEWAL – All domains & subdomains need to be purchased & renewed every year. The cost of this will be according to your domain name supplier & will vary according to your domain type, .com .shop, etc.

    SSL Certification INITITAL Purchase PLUS ANNUAL RENEWAL – All SSL Certificates are initally free of charge but will need to be renewed every year at site owners expense. The cost of this will be according to the current fee from the Certificate Authorities but average around $10 per year.

    Hosting, Domains & SSL Certification will be renewed annually with Global Homeworkers Club. As a website owner you will be notifidied in plenty of time for auto-renewal of each.

    THE AVERAGE COST OF RUNNING A SINGLE DOMAIN:

    Annual Hosting Plan Cost + Domain Purchase or annual renewal cost for each domain/subdomain + annual renewal cost for SSL Certification for each domain/subdomain.

    What Is Hosting?
    Hosting is the process of having an internet company giving you a space with them in which to have your website stored & displayed online by them. Hosting is always required in for each & every website you may wish to have online.

    Simply put, a hosting company is like a landlord who will lease you a plot of land (hosting plan) on which you can build your building (your domain).

    Hosting for websites can be offered by major companies like GoDaddy.com, etc, who specialise in all types of hosting plans for major corporations & have massive storage space for millions of websites.

    In addition to hosting websites hosting companies offer email accounts to be maintained for each website to give visitors to your websites the re-assurance that yours is a professional site.

    Hosting using these major companies can often be offered indirectly by resellers who are able to resell hosting plans at a greatly reduced price compared to the main hosting companies but using all of the services of the main hosting companies.

    Resellers purchase blocks of hosting space & offer portions of this space according to individual needs for smaller sites. This gives resellers the advantage of being able to pay individual attention to the requirements of smaller companies or invidiuals who need an online presence & create tailored hosting plans as required.

    Do I Need Hosting?

    If you wish to have your own domain (website) on the plot of land (hosting) that you lease from your hosting company (landlord) you will definitely require hosting.

    Every website that exists online must be hosted. This does not mean that you cannot have your own online presence online without a hosting plan.

    Many webstes exist that will offer you free websites, profile pages at their sites or free landing pages you can use to promote both yourself & the comapny offering you the free sites.

    How Much Hosting Space Do I Need?

    Our Global Homeworkers Club Hosting Plans come with 10GB of storage space for your websites. This is enough to host an average of 5 websites or online shops with 5,000 products or blogging posts on each before any upgrade to larger sizes is needed. How long would it take an average blogger to fill this space? Years & years!!

    One of the main considerations when planning hosting is how much bandwidth you’ll need (room to transmit data to many visitors or websites simultaniously). We’ve found that we can run dozens of websites at the same time with up to 20 visitors at every site with no drain on speed or volume using just a portion of the smallest hosting plan we offer.

    What Is A Domain?

    A domain is a website that has been purchased with a domain registration company. In addition to purchasing a domain for each website you require you’ll also need hosting for that website to that people get to see your website online.

    Domains are in effect buildings (websites) that you build on your plot of land (hosting plan). You can create almost any type of building on your domain, the most popular of which is WordPress (a blogging platform which turns your domain into a type of newspaper office that you add news items or posts/pages to). WordPress can also be used to create an online store from which you can sell almost anything.

    Domains can have any alphanumeric name & currently there are 100s of TLDs (domain name endings) available for personal & commercial use.

    A typical domain name would look like this – GlobalHomeworkersClub.LIVE

    Many commercial domains end with the suffix .com however this is rapidly changing as new domain suffixes arelive becoming far more brand friendly. The highest increase in domain suffixes is currently for .shop .live .club which are currently multiplying in user at a rate of x3 per year on average.

    What Is A Subdomain?

    A subdomain is a website that runs seperately & independently to a main domain but is placed beneath or alongside a domain allowing websites to have many layers, each as a seperate website.

    This can be likened to the domain being the mothership (mothership.com as demo) of company headquaters with subdomains being added rather like departments within an office or shop. These are run using the mothership.com name but adding an extra prefix such as SHOP or MEMBERS. Each subdomain SHOP.mothership.com or MEMBERS.mothership.com is run as an invidiual website but as part of the mothership.com group.

    If the main mothership.com domain (main headquarters) becomes inactive (no longer hosted) all subdomains will go with it.

    Typical subdomains we use to anchor websites under our main website: globalhomeworkersclub.live:

    SHOP.globalhomeworkers.live — TRAINING.globalhomeworkersclub.live

    What Is SSL?

    SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the means by which websites transmit & collect data securely.

    In order to prove to visitors that any information they may enter at any website is safe each website requiring security is tested by by Certificate Authorities to determine if an SSL certificate should be issued. This is a similar process to a passport office checking information is correct & valid before issuing a recognised passport.

    Certificate Authorities then issue SSL Certificates for each site needed which are registered with them. Once issued your websites will now be listed as secure & contain the https prefix plus the anchor symbol in the address bar.

    An SSL certificate is a digital computer file (or small piece of code) that has two specific functions:

    1. Authentication and Verification: The SSL certificate has information about the authenticity of certain details regarding the identity of a person, business or website, which it will display to visitors on your website when they click on the browser’s padlock symbol in the website address bar.

    2. Data Encryption: The SSL certificate also enables data to be encrypted, meaning sensitive information cannot be intercepted & seen but anyonee other than the intended recipient.

    Do I Need SSL For My Sites?

    You only need SSL Certification for your websites if you transmit private data over your website.

    If you have any site selling any product or service where cash is collected directly through your sites then SSL is an absolute must. This will give both you & your visitors the extra encrypted data security & so extra piece of mind.

    It’s A Fact Of Life…

    Getting started online & working at home for yourself can be a really lonely thing. The majority of profit making schemes are simply there to take your cash. Most people who start out online end up broke within months because the really valuable help they need is almost non-existent!

    It isn’t easy taking the leap of faith that’s needed in yourself to risk your time & cash as an investment in yourself when times are hard. You really need that extra cash for you & your family. We know exactly how that feels. Venturing into the unknown & having to trust people claiming to want to help you is a daunting task.

    So many of the people we have helped have stood where you stand right now. We helped them with real assistance; mentoring them.
