While many of my Website Creation Workshop students are somewhat familiar with the process of establishing a new website when first coming into the program, there are some people who are not. In my training program, I go over the process of establishing a website from start to finish so that you don’t need to waste time just trying to “figure it out.”
In the video below, I explain how to open a hosting account, using Bluehost (www.TheBestHostNow.com – my link for them) hosting account as an example. I have used Blue Host for many years, and love their support and how easy it is to communicate with them on the phone.
Had EXTREMELY bad service from their design bunch. They have no Quality Control function. After 4 months of silence after accepting a pile on crap (very busy. trusted Bluehost) I went after a senior manager. He cut through the garbage. The site is being repaired as I type. But, because no QC and double-talk and evasion from the tech (and my negligence), I missed 4 months of income.
The corrected site may be offered to me today. After I approve it, when I inform this senior manager, I’ll also give him basic advice on implementing QC so this is unlikely to ever happen again. But if you need Design, give it a while. Right now, they can’t be trusted.
I am so sorry to hear you had bad experience. I didn’t even know they did design work. I have only used them for web hosting and have had good experience.
Sometimes I have troubles, but they always fix things on the phone
