Plan for Your Site

Outline then do


Always a good idea. Pre-plan and then do. Too often projects are started without a plan and too often plans are made and not carried through.

This guide will help outline the important steps required for website creation and promotion. Information in this document should help readers avoid many pitfalls and save time throughout the process."

Who dat

And Where


Let's say you wanted to set up a web site for your friend Bob, who lives in Bosnia-Hercegovina. Would you know that the root zone code was .ba and that the contact person has an office at:

Universtiy Telinformatic Centre (UTIC)
Zmaja od Bosne 8 (objekat 33)
Sarajevo 71000
Bosnia-Hercegovina

See:
International Assigned Numbers Association:
Root-Zone Whois Information

There is also a page that defines such top level domains as .COM and .NET.
Generic Top-Level Domains

BTW.
Sorry feline fanatics,
"The .cat domain is reserved for the Catalan linguistic and cultural community and is sponsored by Fundaciรณ puntCat"
