by Jeff Hamilton, Evelyn Trimborn, Thomas Michaels and Martin Warner

Having a professional-looking website is essential for almost every type of business in order to showcase all of your products and services, but many small business owners have little experience with building a website and even less cash to spare to hire a professional website designer.

Having a website that is available around the clock is also essential to your online success. Your choice of website hosting company will be one of the most important business decisions that you will ever make.

The authors, all experienced website developers, give you the benefit of their experience with HostGator as a hosting service, and in particular HostGator’s Control Panel (cPanel), to help you make the most of all the professional-quality features that can help you build your website in a matter of minutes if you have your content prepared to paste in and publish.

Then it will be time to register your domain name and get started using the cPanel to set up email addresses, create web pages, turn your new website into a blog, and much more.

You will discover:

+ How to set up customized email addresses for your new business
+ The four way to create your website, even if you have no experience at all
+ How to integrate Google Checkout and PayPal into your website so you can start taking online payments immediately without the need for an expensive merchant account
+ How to get started using WordPress to create a professional blog that search engines will love (especially Google)

and much more.

The illustrations help guide you through the wide array of special features contained in HostGator’s extensive cPanel. Learn how to:

+ Locate the special Google AdWords discount coupon in your interface (save $50 to $100 off your Pay-Per-Click ads)
+ Use WordPress as a robust content management system to keep all your essential business files in one place
+ Track and test the success of your new website through sophisticated website analytics tools right inside your cPanel
