You would need to build your website using any website development application and once you it is done you would need to uoload your website content on the server using FTP details. Flash, JavaScript or Java Applets are client side features – which mean that it runs on your visitor’s computer. So you can add flash, JavaScript or Java Applets to your website and as long as your visitors have these features available on their computers they will be able to view your web pages perfectly. Any browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape) that supports them will do. So these features are all supported by default on all hosting packages.

The most common way of uploading files to your site's account is by using FTP. When you sign up you will be sent your FTP account and details that lets you access files in your account. You can then use a FTP tool to transfer your website files from your hard drive to your FTP account on the web server. You can use a dedicated FTP program such as WS_FTP, CuteFTP or FileZilla. Alternately you can use the built in Windows or Internet Explorer FTP program. If you prefer a Web interface, you can use your account control panel's File Manager instead. We suggest using dedicated FTP programs because these programs have the best user interfaces and support advanced options like setting file permissions and resuming aborted file transfers. You can download FileZilla in the Download Section of our Support site.

We unfortunately do not offer website design/devevlopment. You would need to get in contact with a developer or we can refer you to Go Fish Client Catchers ( They would love to design your site for you; with anything from a basic 3 page site to a complex specifically designed database driven site.
