Creating your own website is sometimes a daunting process; however, you need not be confused by all the technical jargon. Setting up a website is an easy work and can be done by anyone. The feeling that most people experience when they see their own name on the internet is a mixture of pride, satisfaction and awe. Creating a website involves three basic ideas, your purpose, the content, what will be Domain name, and what type of hosting services you require.
1) Purpose: Why do you need to create a website? Do you want to go online for business purposes or do you want to write a few blogs and share some photographs with your friends, family and the rest of the world? If you want to set up a website to promote your business then it has to be professional and easy to understand.
2) Domain Name: Based on your purpose you should decide your domain name. It has to reflect your business, for example, if you are in home décor business, the domain has to contain a word or two that indicate your area of expertise. Please note that though the web hosting service is free registration of your website is not free. You have to pay some money to go live on the internet. There are many registration terms you can use to register your domain, for example, .com, .net. or .org., etc.
3) Storage space: The purpose for setting up a website leads to the number of the visitors expected and storage space required in the host server or shared server. If you are setting up a website to air your views on the internet or to entertain your family then you need a small storage space. On the other hand, if you are selling products online or soliciting orders for your business, then you need several connected pages and an email. You should go for a bigger space in the shared server.
4) Contact reputable free hosting services: Spend some time searching for hosting services, read references, search for adverse comments, read clients comments, compare and contrast both. Find out if the hosting services allow you to use your own domain name, gives you enough storage, has bandwidth/data transfer facilities and provides email services.
You are now ready to create your website and go on line. Best of luck!
