I work as a Java / Java EE developer. I have built / maintained websites for the companies that I work for , but I have never been involved in the end-to-end process (Eg: procuring servers , registering the website etc).

I thought of building and hosting a website for my uncle. He sells few financial products and he has to travel a lot around the city that I live to market and sell his products. I wanted to help him by building a website for him which would hopefully allow people to yeah out to him rather than him going and searching for customers.

I am not quite sure as to where I should start -

1) Whom should I contact for hosting my web application - this is not a very critical app , hence a low cost solution would be suffice.Are there any low cost cloud based solutions available? 2) How can I register a domain and how much does it normally cost? 3) How can I copyright my website and its contents?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question is way too broad and its parts have been asked here before. You can learn more about finding hosting here. Copyrights here. You can find out more about registering domains with a quick Google search. – John Conde Mar 4 '12 at 18:55
