Unit 8: Business Online Clowning Around How to Implement a Website There are many things that have to be prepared before a website can be made. Firstly, Clowning Around you have to make sure that you are connected to the internet itself. You can become connected through internet providers, such as BT, Virgin Media, Tiscali, and Bulldog etc. An employee of the company will then come and connect you to the internet. There are 2 ways of receiving the Internet, through Broadband and Dial Up. The Dial Up connection means that you have to disable your phone line, in order to access the Internet. The Dial Up will also require you to type a username and password.

As a result it is imperative that you are protected. You must have Anti-Virus protection software on your computer. I would recommend that you use Norton Anti-Virus or McAfee. Running these Anti-virus software(s) at least once a week will help maintain a virus free computer. You will also need to have a firewall to protect yourself. I would recommend Sygate Personal Firewall, you can choose which programs you would like to access the network and have the option to block programs from accessing the network. This firewall will also notify you if something or someone is trying to gain access into your computer. So make sure that you are protected, so you are not at risk of losing crucial business files. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
