Here’s the step-by-step.
Step 1: Establishing the Rules of Business
The word "rules" may seem a bit harsh, because in fact we’re contemplating embarking into a pleasant, worry-free, long-term business relationship. But once TextStyle sends you on your way with your website, you might not be calling much. So let’s talk about the measures we’ll be taking to prevent the lines of communication from getting garbled.
Step 2: Securing the Domain Name
Maybe you already have one or more domain names; maybe you don't. Let's figure out what might be involved either way.
Step 3: Renting Your Corner of the Web (Hosting)
Do you have several employees or do you work by yourself? How busy do you expect your site will be? In fact, how big will the site itself be? The answer to those questions will help TextStyle determine which of its four hosting packages is suitable for you.
Step 4: Enabling TextStyleM in Your Domain
TextStyleM is a licensed, modular program, meaning you only need to get (and pay for) what you intend to use. At this point, we should also be discussing the design of your website's template.
Step 5: Showing You How It Works!
Your installation of TextStyleM will have a wealth of online help, and the knowledge base on this website will grow over time. But there's nothing wrong with a bit of hand-holding at first to give you the confidence to take control of your website.
Step 6: Planning for the Long Term
Although by this point you'll have everything you need to take control of your website, you might want to keep TextStyle close at hand for the "big updates" on your site. Or one day you might decide to have a TextStyleM module that you declined getting at the start. «The TextStyle Advantage» is all about giving you maximum flexibility over time.
