Domain Secrets: How Do I Build a Website?

Want to build a website of your own? It is quite easy.  Follow these three steps for creating a website.

Step 1- Choose a platform

A platform is a tool that can be used to build a website. A few years earlier, web development was using HTML, CSS etc. which was difficult and time-consuming to learn and master. With the launch of content managing systems (CMS) like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla etc.  in 2017, creating web content has been an easy affair. WordPress is used widely because it is a user-friendly platform and it is free. It provides a huge range of layouts choices for your website. It is easy to use.

Step 2- Choose a web host, domain name

To have your website online, you need two basic things

a domain name or a web address like sitename.com

a web hosting service which lets you save your webpage on their web host server and makes it online

You might need to pay less 3 to 5 dollars a month for a domain name and web hosting. You can still save on this amount by looking for coupons and deals form several web hosts. A hostgator 1 penny coupon offered by HostGator can get you a monthly rental of one dollar.

Step 3 – Create your website

These are the steps to follow-

  • Install WordPress
  • Choose an inspiring theme or template for your site. You can create a new theme also.
  • Add content and create a new page
  • Launch your website

Great job! Now you have successfully built your new website on WordPress. It is hardly any money that you spend on having your website float online. So, have a new idea or want to start an online business, the process is quite simple.
