Beginners: Find Here the 2 Key Elements You Need To Start Creating Your Website
Article by Patricia Lombard
Making your own website is much easier than you think! The problem is where do you start? You can easily create a website using the software that is already installed on your computer in addition to making use of what is freely available on the Internet.
Once you have found an appropriate subject for your website (I am assuming here that you have already discovered your niche and done a thorough keyword research); there are only two things that you really need:-
1. A Domain Name
One of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to register your own domain name, as this will give your website its own “web address”. So the very first thing you should do even before thinking about building your website is to register a domain name. It represents the permanent web address of your website and looks a bit like this “mywebsite.com”. Think of a domain name as a postal address to a house. When someone types in “mywebsite.com” in their browser, they will therefore see your website. Try to include the main keyword in the website URL is a great idea to get more traffic.
You can register your domain name through a domain name registrar or hosting provider.
2. Web Hosting
Once you have registered a domain name, the next step is to purchase web space on a server to upload your website. A server is basically a powerful computer which has enormously large hard drives. A web hosting provider will lease you, for a monthly or annual fee, space on its computer servers (24 hours a day). This in turn will allow you to have a “web presence” on the Internet. Therefore web hosting entitles you to make your website accessible worldwide via the internet.
It is important to select your hosting provider carefully – a good hosting provider will have outstanding 24h support. This support is vital for people who are new to creating websites. Getting an immediate response to a query, as opposed to a couple of days later, will make a huge difference in keeping you motivated!
Easy Website Building methods
Over the years, the technology used to build websites has dramatically changed and it is now much easier for people who are “not technical” to make their own site. Learning complicated coding/programming is no longer a must. Software applications like WordPress or Kompozer are great easy options for building a new website. These programs function like basic Wordprocessing software whilst automatically creating the HTML code in the background. So no need to worry about coding!
