A contact page



Hold up your post it note when completed

Anyone can do this


You should consider your type of business
and the name must be unique (and
available!)


Most popular domains include .co.uk, .com,
.net
, .org


Co.uk names cost
approx

£6 for two years


.com can be up to £25 for two years


It is usual to purchase hosting at the same
time and some packages will include 1 free
domain name when you sign up for 1 year!

Why
use a feedback form?


Menu



In your table groups jot down at least three
benefits of using such a feature in a web site


In the same groups discuss and produce a rough
design and possible questions for a feedback form
to be included in the twitch site


Having planned this page you can now add such a
feature into your site


Menu


Using the twitch web site (or the site from
the first week), add a feedback form
together with appropriate fields

Menu


You should now have experienced creating a
rough design for at least one web page
(twitch feedback form!)


What you should attempt now is to plan at
least two pages for your project design


It is also a good time to start thinking about a
domain name
