    Thanks for this! Extremely informative!! I’m just now getting my freelance
    business off the ground and was wondering how to handle hosting. It’s as if
    you read my mind

    ohhh and on average, how long does it take to complete a website? (design
    and code up), say a three page website like you said in the video?

    Wow, I’ve emailed countless web designers and posted question on numerous
    forums but no one has yet given me a straight answer. This video made
    everything clear, I can’t thank you enough.

    Trimdownhosting com have a cheap hosting plan about $6/mo. The highest
    hosting plan is a little over $13/mo with unlimited services. There is free
    domain registration and free domain transfer. I’m using them for a site
    that I am currently working on. Set up was pretty simple and easy. Other
    hosting companies have a 2years or more to get this rate. At Trim Down
    Hosting, there are no gimmicks of long term sign ups for low rates. I’ve
    referred this site to others as well.

    Great advice—I hadn’t considered keeping the hosting and design separate,
    but I may have to do that in the future. Thanks!

    I kinda agree with you and letting the clients handle the hosting. That
    being said, not all clients are going to know how to host the website. I
    guess you’d let them know upfront that you’re not going to handle the
    hosting for them? I mean, would you explain to them how to host?

    I personally would recommend a dual-monitor setup, which is what I use.
    Makes things a lot easier (you can get a good 23″ 1080p monitor for $170).
    If you are somewhat technically inclined, you can build a computer from
    individual components. This way, not only do you get exactly what you need,
    but also save money versus buying OEM.

    With Muse CC you don’t even have to know much code. I think it will be
    obsolete soon.

    Great Video! A great free html (and PHP) editor is Aptana Studio. Its based
    on eclipse but I feel it does more out of the box. Dreamweaver is nice as
    it works well with the other adobe products; but stand alone html editor, I
    choose Aptana. One thing I have found with laptops, they overheat due to
    dust and what not. Open the case and use compressed air to clean the vents
    and fans will help with the overheating issue.

    Make sure you backup on a seperate HDD aswell, I have all my portfolio
    online and on 2 HDD so you do not have to worry about losing data.

    Personally I would recommend hosting your client’s accounts. There’s a
    reason why the big companies are happy to pay $50 in commissions for
    referrals, that being because the recurring income makes a very good
    business model. All you need is a decent reseller account and with 100 web
    design client’s you could easily bring in $1000/month in hosting income. If
    anyone is interested in doing this send me a PM, I make my living from
    setting up hosting businesses.

    grateful for them all! Your tips are great! Please don’t quit making videos
    any time soon. From Australia, -Mem
