If you want to create your own website, and do it as quickly as possible then you’ve come to the right place. There are 3 essential things that you need to do in order to have your website up and running as quickly as possible. You need to
- Register/buy a domain
- Host that domain
- Choose your template
Buying a domain
The first step you will need to take is buying a domain. Now you need to buy your domain from a domain registrar. Before I discuss the various domain registrars, I want to discuss the importance of selecting a domain.
You need to select a domain that you are passionate about and will love to market one day. You do not want to have to succeed in spite of your domain name. If your site relates to travel, you don’t want to register a site like joe’sbasketballshop.net. If you choose a domain like that, you will have to succeed in spite of your name.
You also need to decide whether you will buy an expired domain or a brand new domain. What’s the difference? Starting with a brand new domain will an uphill battle because it has no credibility on the internet. It has no recognition from google. If you do research on expired domains, you can possibly find a domain that someone is no longer using but has a lot of positive metrics that will allow you to get traffic sooner than if you start from scratch.
Hosting that domain
After you buy a domain, you will need to select where you are going to host that domain. If you buy your domain on sites like godaddy or squarespace, they will offer you an option to host that. If you just buy your domain from a site that is just a registrar, you will then need to find a place to host that site.
The most popular hosting sites are sites like hostgator or bluehost.
You want to make sure that the host you are using has a wordpress hosting option. Most beginners use wordpress hosting to create their website, because you don’t have to know much about coding in order to create an extremely professional website.
Choosing a template for your website
The template you choose depends on what kind of website you are starting. If you are starting a blog you want to make sure that your template is conducive to blogs. You don’t want to choose a template that is made for photographers or ecommerce.
Alternatively if you are starting a site for photography or ecommerce, you want to make sure that your template does have features to market your photographs. If you are starting an ecommerce site, you want to make sure that the template you utilize has a shopping cart and checkout feature. If it doesn’t, you want to make sure that it easily compatible with shopping plugins.
For wordpress templates I recommend the templates from Themeforest. They sort their templates by category such as blog and ecommerce. Their templates are some of the most popular templates on the web.
Those are the essential steps on how to create ur own website. If you follow the steps above, you will have your website up and running as quickly as possible.
