Typo3 is a ready-made system with many development opportunities, so you do not have to code anything yourself or hire a programmer to get started.

Typo3 web hotel
Your CMS must be hosted somewhere, and you therefore need a Typo3 web site. In short, the system must be located on a web space that allows your visitors to always access your website. To run a Typo3 site, you need a web hotel that runs Linux with the ability to run PHP.
In addition, you must choose how much space you need at the web hotel. If you are not sure of this, you can typically choose the smallest package and later upgrade when and if the need arises.
At ScanNet we have different packages, depending on how much space and how many e-mail accounts you need. You can find an overview of our web hotels here .

Typo3 design – Get a unique page
Once you have installed your new CMS on a web space, content and a unique design must be on the page. Your design will become the page’s identity, and you should therefore consider whether you can settle for a standard template or if you are better off with your own design. If you do not have the time or the skills yourself, you can get a designer to put your visual identity up to you.
