How to Make a Website

Why Struggle to Create Your Website? You Will Find Information and Resources Here That Will Make Your Project Easier and Faster.

I hope that you are having a great day today. In my area of the US we are starting to get some cooler weather. A large cold front is making its way here from the North Central states. I personally do not like cold weather and I am not looking forward to the lower temperatures. Depending on where you live, you may be seeing the fall colors as the leaves loose their green colors. Some may have experienced that already and the leaves are falling or are already gone.

When the cooler weather comes, it is a good time to stay inside. You may be thinking about making your own website. This would be a good time to do it! You may have to pull yourself away from the new episode of your favorite TV show, because most of the TV series have started a new season.

With the economic uncertainties and the higher costs of everything, you may be thinking about how to make extra money. A website is a great way to make money. Once you set up your website, then your visitors can place orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and even while you are doing other things.

You need to decide what you want to do with your website. If you want to make money, then you need to decide how? There are many different types of websites, and there are many ways to make money with your website. Before you start making your website you need to decide what it will be about and how you will make money with it.

Website Hosting

You will need to consider which company to use for your website hosting. There are options that range from free to hundreds of dollars per month. If you are just starting out, then probably want to consider the lower end options. These are cheaper, but they should be adequate for your needs to start. Once you get your website established and have 1000’s of visitors each day, then you may want to upgrade to a dedicated server.

I recommend two website hosting companies that I have used and have had good service with. IX Web Hosting and Site 5 Web Hosting. You can use any web hosting company that you choose and can find more options by doing a Google search for “web hosting”.

Pick Your Domain Name

You may want to take the time to pick a good domain name. Your domain name is the URL address for your website. In case you are not sure what a domain name is, it looks like this:

Your domain name should be memorable, so that your visitor can remember how to get back to your website when they want to return. It should also be short as possible. If you do any offline marketing, then you want people to come to your website. If your address is 40 characters long, they may not want to type it out to get to your website.

Another consideration is the use of dash ( - ) or underscore ( _ ). These may make your website address easier to read and understand, but most people are lazy. They may enter your website address without the dash or underscore and end up on someone else’s website. One way to prevent this is to get every varience of your website domain and have them point to your website. Only use one actual website address for your website and the other addresses will point to that one.

Make Your Website

Most website hosting companies provide website creation software as part of your C-Panel of control panel. This is a basic website design package. They may have a number of ready made templates for you to choose from. When you click on the Publish Button, then your website will be saved to your server and be active for your visitors to see.

Another option is to get software loaded on your personal computer to create your website. There are many options available that range from free to $100’s or even $1000’s. There are complete suites of software that cover every aspect of website creation, such as Adobe Creative Suite 4. Here is a review of the Best Windows HTML Editors. Here is a review of Free WYSIWYG HTML Editors.

You could also pay someone to design and create your website for you. This will be the most costly. I recommend that you at least try to create your own website to start. This way you will better understand what is involved and will be able to make sure the person you outsource your projects to in the future is doing what they are supposed to be doing. There are also security issues with allowing someone else to have access to your website hosting account and other sensitive information.
