If you want to build a websitethis tutorial will assist you in starting your own website.
This is mainly intended for laypersons or beginners since it takes you step by step from the start to the end on how to create your own basic website.
Get your domain name
The initial step to getting a website is to get your domain name. This is the name that you want to use. For one to get a domain name, an annual fee has to be paid to a domain registrar. The registrar is a company that gives the right to use that name.
Choose a web host and sign up for an account
This is the second step of creating your own website. A web host is a company with numerous computers called servers that contain customer websites that people surfing the internet can access. By placing your webpage on a webhosting company’s server, every person in the world is able to bring your website up simply by typing in your website’s domain name. A good way to think about a web hosting account is that it’s like renting a shop or storefront in the offline world. Your web hosting account provides you with a way for people to find your website online.
Once you have your domain name and web hosting account the next step is the fun part. The actual designing of your website.
Designing your web pages
At this step, you can hire a web designer if you want but you don’t have to. Most web hosting companies provide easy to use website builders that allow you to easily make your own website. These can make simple websites or websites that are very complex depending on what you want.
It is very simple to build your own website using a web host’s website maker software. Most of these are WYSIWYG software which means “what you see is what you get.” You simply choose what color and design you want for your website then add your text and images where you want them to appear on the page and that’s all you have to do. It’s very easy. You just point your mouse where you want something on your website page and it will be added in that spot.
What is great about using a web host’s website building software is that it is super simple for a beginner. You don’t need to know HTML or CSS or any other complicated coding languages. All you have to do is choose your design from usually hundreds of designs then point and click to add your content. It makes website building very easy.
