I’ve just started taking my second webdesign class and this blog is my first assignment. I was supposed to mention how I chose www.strawmancomics.com for my personal website domain. I also have www.dimlightgraphics.com, which is the name of my graphic design website. I chose www.strawmancomics.com because when I was promoting my comic book “Straw Man” I need a website to promote the character. strawman.com was taken and I didn’t like the sounds of “strawmancomic.com” as much. I could have gone with www.dimlightcomics.com but I wanted something that was more versatile, using the dimlight name. www.davidbranstetter.com is out of the question because of the difficulty of spelling.
davidbran.com is still available and may be worth considering.
When it comes to hosting I like to have an account that’s affordable, hosts more than one site, and has automatic install features. Godaddy seems to fit all these demands. Throw in top notch customer support and you’ve got a winner.
I was using a lot of free server spaces for a while and decided that I needed to get serious about building a website. I felt that I needed a website without pop up ads. It needed to be fast and I didn’t want to join a message board to get it. A friend of mine suggested godaddy and was pleased with the service.
