Without knowing anything about web development, design, or coding you can create your own website. For this you only need right tools and resources. Here I am going to share step-by-step guide will help you create a website from scratch without website builders or any agencies.
What are the things you need to start your own website?
To create a fully functional website, you’ll need to secure three things that is ….
- Domain name which is your custom web address, http://www.YourSite.com
- Website hosting used for service that hosts your website
- WordPress, a platform to create free website.
Now let’s get started for step by step guide. Just read it carefully and follow the steps:
Step 1# Choose the domain name: The domain name is your website name and address being used by visitors when they try to find your website through their web browsers. Your domain name is the key element of your website. It can make or break you so choose it wisely. At first you need to choose your domain name extension, you can be sure of one thing “.com” is still the best. This is just only because it is the most familiar and easiest to remember. After domain extension you can use some tools which can help you create a unique, brandable domain name from your initial domain ideas and keywords. Also you have to make sure that your domain name is shorter and easy to type and easy to remember.
Step 2# Get Web Hosting and Register Domain: After domain name, you’ll also need website hosting. It is a service that hosts and stores your website files (content) on a secure server that is always up and running. Without a web host, your site will not be accessible for others to read and browse. Affordable and reliable web hosting for new websites costs you little bit but make sure whichever web hosting company you sign up with, make sure it has the following features:
- FREE domain name with SSL (for security)
- One-click-install for WordPress (free)
- Custom email accounts
- Unlimited or unmetered bandwidth (no traffic limitations)
- Customer support, preferably 24/7 live chat
Step 3# Set Up WordPress Website: Once you have your domain name and web hosting ready to go, you’ll need to choose and install a website building platform. You can find multiples of platform but wordpress is easy to use and comes with thousands of free designs and add-ons that make your website look professional and unique. Many web hosting providers have “WordPress install” located somewhere in the hosting cPanel. With WordPress installed, what you should do next is test if everything works. The easiest way to do that is to type in your domain name into the web browser. If it is correctly installed then you can see your website on search engine. If it doesn’t look too attractive, don’t worry, WordPress offers you edit option. After doing all things you need to verify SSL certificate to makes sure that your website is delivered to your visitors securely.
Step 4#Customize Your Website Design and Structure: With your bare website alive, it’s now time to make it feel more attractive and genuine by picking a nice design, customizing it, and adding branding elements. WordPress themes are out-the-box design packages that change the way your entire website looks like. WordPress themes are interchangeable – you can switch from theme to theme easily. To Install the Theme You Like go to your WordPress admin interface. Use the username and password you got during WordPress installation. At last click the “Activate” button that will appear in place of the “Install” button. With WordPress you can add design you like, add LOGO, change the colour and many more. Now you need to add content/Pages to Your Website according to your website demand like Home Page. About Us, Contact Page, Blog, Service We provide etc.
