    Hey all. I want to develop a website. I want it to be very good and time isn't an issue-I'm willing to have it take a long time because i want it to be good anyways. I have a couple questions.
    First, what is the best program(s) to go about doing this. I own CS3 (so I have dreamweaver, photoshop, and image ready). Is Coda worth a try? Also, any advice for registering a domain. Do it now? or wait?
    Finally, Is there any type of intellectual property protection i can look into because the site will eventually offer a service.

    Thanks so much for any help.

    Just knocked this up over a couple of nights. I used a standard iWeb template but it seemed to work quite well for a business.

    My intention was to do something quick in iWeb to see its capabilities, and transfer it to my actual domain account and use another program to tart it up. Like you, time is not an issue so I'll be working my way through various programs like CS3, Rapidweaver etc to evaluate their capabilities before settling on one.

    In terms of site registration, I would buy the domain name/ package now. By the sounds of things your site may be quite insensive so find a good provider with lots of space and bandwidth available. I'm using 1and1 at the moment.

    In terms of IPP, without wanting to know what service you're providing, if it were something akin to iStockPhoto then I would look at legal help, especially if people can use the site content without permission generally.

    you might also want to check out rapidweaver. It's a very easy and neat app, and you can get some very professional looking themes for it.
