Are you thinking of building your website? If you hesitate on the idea but deep inside would always want your own website, below are simple steps for you to follow. Building a website is much easier than you think.
First, let us talk about the cost. Spending between $10-$20 a month, you can have your own website set-up. If you do not want to spend a dime in building your own website, you may also search for free web hosting. Whatever you choose, you should take a quick look at the steps in making your own website.
1. Choose your domain name.
You can always choose what address you want for your website. But it would be best to assess first what products or services you would want to sell online. A great name for your website is something that would easily remember you and describe perfectly your website. There are now a lot of names you may have thought of but are not available. I suggest that you start listing 10 possible names for your website.
2. Create your hosting account.
This is the space where you want your website to be. You can have a quick search on web hosting services and packages. I suggest that you choose the most popular ones. Avoid choosing the cheapest web hosting as this won’t be of quality in terms of running time and technical support.
There are also several hosting companies that will let you choose also your hosting name. If you already purchased your domain name, just enter this name when prompted. You will be taken to a few steps on how to access your account after that.
3. Start building your website.
You can have three choices here, these are:
– You can ask someone to build you a site.
– You can build it yourself.
– Use a free website builder- (like a blog)
4. Get good content.
Write good content for your site. Many search engines track down the keywords and keyword phrases your site uses and how they are used. It is not a requirement that a content should be done by a professional content writer. You could do your own but you have to make content for your site that is entertaining as well as informational. It should provide certain requirements as well as great quality.
Generally, internet users use search engines to find what they are looking for. Search engines in return use keyword searching in aiding their search results. With the right keywords, you could get high rankings in search engine results without the costs.
There you go. Remember that having a website can contribute a lot to your business development and growth. Just make sure that you also supply valuable contents for your website. People are always looking for great information online. And to be able for people to find your website, you should be able to supply them with what they are looking for. Always consider quality contents too. Search engines will index your website easily if they find your contents worth reading. Always remember, “content is king”. Be prepared and good luck!
