Do I need a domain name before I get a website?

No. When you sign up, you choose what are called an ID and a password. The ID serves 2 purposes. 1 - you use it (along with your password) to perform various functions, one of which is putting up data on your website. 2 - as soon as you get your ID, your Internet address becomes www.WebInAJiffy.com/yourid. People can get to your website by entering www.WebInAJiffy.com/yourid, and there's no need to get your own domain name if you don't want to.

Is there a charge for designing a website?

No. That's because our websites are predesigned. All you have to do is pick one.

Otherwise, we might consider doing it for a fee, depending on our workload at the time.

How do I get a domain name?

There are several companies with which you can register a domain name with. Here are just a few: First, you have to see if the domain name you want is available. Most, if not all, domain registration companies have, what's called, "whois." Clicking on their "whois" allows you to find out if a name is available and, in some cases, it tells you who owns the name.
