Finally RADIANTGUY.COM launched!
It's true :D
It took me 8 months after the day I registered my domain name RADIANGUY.COM and 3 months of web and graphics design to get it out.
OK...I published it on 27th of October 2007 and it was available for few seconds until I found out about some bugs and I had to fix them all.
- The first bug was the server didn't support Arabic script and it doesn't show the copyright symbol in the English section so I had to add a script forcing the browser to show them correctly (I didn't test it with Internet explorer yet).
- Some photos didn't appear in the portfolio section and I totally freaked out because I had no idea what was wrong exactly!, I knew nothing was wrong with the files names but still didn't get it!...Eventually I realised that the extensions were written in upper case so I had to change 90% of them and re upload them.
- Then I had a problem with the favicon but that was fixed too :D
- Last thing was a problem with the domain name it self, so I had to contact the support team to tell me what to do...I'll make sure to let them regret the day I became their customer LOL
I know no body noticed it at the time, but now the website is finally OUT for public.
NOW YOU CAN SEE THE UNLIT PART ;)
I would like to know how do you all think about it, do you like it or not (consider that I am not a web designer)?
I don't like some parts of it such as contact and links section, I guess I wasn't in the mood that day so I might redesign them later.
Currently I am doing the final touches before uploading the index page and allow people to get into my world, I will make a video file of the launching for my personal archive.
I did create a website years in 1999 and it was hosted on free hosting servers, but I never published a site on a paid server...I thought it's hard to do it...But it wasn't at all, If I can do it everybody can.
