Default The Simple Things


Sometimes we can search forever here or the internet and never find that answer to just a simple question of how....

I recently went online with a new website using Visual Studio 2005. I read a lot of horror stories and "how-to's" with words and terms I did not understand. So I was expecting the worst...

In reality.... It was simple!

I signed up at www.1and1.com with a domain name I made up. I paid for webspace using the 1&1 MS Business package. ($10/month). Make sure it is a MS (Microsoft) Server!.

I then set up an FTP account so I had a login name and password. Once all this is done, I wrote the website using Visual Studio. Mine was very simple and just had to send a text message to a phone with very specific string in the body. The user selects options and the VB program takes those options and creates the body of the message. I only had 1 page and not database so it was very simple.

From Visual Studio, I just click Publish from the Build menu. I typed in my ftp site and in the next window, I gave my ftp username and password. When the publish was finished, viola, my website was online!

I did not see anything here or elsewhere that at least gave me hope that it was this simple. I hope someone finds this post useful.

Thanks.
