    Hello people,

    General Quick Query.

    I have a site ive designed for a customer. Its finished and they want to proof read it. I do not currently have my own site to upload it to and send them a link.

    1. What is the best way to get your client to sign off the site?
    2. Why do you use this method?
    3. Is there a good PHP enabled FREE website I could get to upload?
    4. Is there a format (ie PDF) I can use to get them to proof read all the content?

    Cheers,
    Edd.

    I don't think there's any excuse ... get you butt going and pay for hosting. It's not that expensive!

    Go to this one: www.cleverdot.com $30/year with your own domain name...
    that's about $2.50 per month! You can make the main page your own, and
    create a temporary directory for each client you have, so they can preview
    their site. Since you're using PHP, they can't copy anything, because they won't
    be able to download the PHP scripts.

    albeit they could copy the HTML design, and shaft you.

    Download a free pdf printer, and then "print" the pages to PDF. Send those to the client. They'd still have access to the design, but if they try to shaft you, it'd be a bit harder for them to copy.

    If the site has any PHP dynamic scripting to it, copying the HTML
    would be sort of futile. You could easily have a couple of witnesses
    view your demo site before the client views it ... perhaps allow Google
    to cache it before you reveal it.

    If I suspected that I had a client that would stoop that low, I probably
    wouldn't do any programming for them.
