How To Build A Website Step By Step

Today learning how to build a website step by step doesn't require any special programming or design skills. If you know how to send an email or create a document in a word processor, you have sufficient skills to set up and maintain your own site. Of course, that refers to personal or small business websites (including small e-commerce website), and not enterprise or large e-commerce sites that require lots of customized features and sophisticated design.

Most folks with even the most basic computer skills could put up a site in a couple of hours, or in one weekend - what they will need is details that is laid out in straightforward logical steps - a web design course for complete beginners, should you will.

How to Make a Website in 5 Easy Steps

So here are the steps required to build a basic website.

Step 1. Register a domain name. Go to or other domain registrar's site and search for obtainable domains. Choose domain with keywords that best describe your business and site's content. Domain registration cost: under $10 per year.

Step 2. Set up a hosting account. Select a reputable provider with online support, for example, I use Bluehost or Hostgator. I suggest you decide on a plan that permits for unlimited number of domains, such plans usually cost under $8 per month, so the cost isn't high, and you'll have the ability to set up far more sites on the exact same hosting space.

Step 3. Install WordPress with a 1 click installation. I recommend Bluehost or Hostgator since they both offer simple WordPress installation. But what is WordPress and why should you be using it? WordPress is a free, open-source content management system (CMS) that allows you to construct and expand your site easily. It's a blogging platform, but - don't worry - your site doesn't have to look like a blog at all, unless you want it to. You'll be able to access your administrator's panel from any web browser, and to add a new page you will be using an editor that looks a great deal like your internet email interface. You can just type your text there, add a title, click publish, and voila - you will have a brand new page added to your internet site. Cost: Totally free. For more information on WordPress, go to (don't confuse it with, which is a paid hosting platform for WordPress.)

Step 4. Choose a free or professionally designed theme for your site. Read the instructions on how to install it, activate it and set it up. Cost: depending on the template: from free to under $100.

Step 5. Add content to your site. With WordPress, adding content to your site is super easy, and there are plenty of tutorials online that will teach you how to do it. It's best to also optimize your site for the search engines.
