Of course, some experience helps. But if you have a desire to build a presence on the world wide web, then lack of training should not hold you back. As in many work transitions, you learn as you go.
Staring out to create a website can be a little overwhelming. The good news is there are many tools available that make getting started easy. As you go through this article, we’ll walk you through step-by-step on getting started with a website builder.
Website Builder Options
Essentially, there are two principle ways to create a website.
If you are experienced, you can subscribe to an online, open source, website creation tool like WordPress or Joomla. You will still need some other tools. Hence, that is why we suggest you work through a one-stop registrar, web hosting, and data center like Website Web Hosting Services International. This provider offers you a turnkey website builder from registering your domain through to building it and even turning it into an e-commerce site, if that is your goal.
Steps to Building a Website
There are 4-key steps to launching a website. If using Website Web Hosting Services International, here are the required steps:
- 1. choose a website builder plan,
- 2. choose a domain name,
- 3. choose a preinstalled application like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Moodle (Suggestion: WordPress is easiest if you are just starting out)
- 4. enter your account details (Suggestion: Regardless of the website builder service you choose, ignore the add-ons for the start, you can get them as you grow. No need to spend money when you don’t have to, right.)
That’s it. Four easy steps to getting a web builder in place to create your personal website.
Selecting Your Web Builder Tips
Website builders are easily found by searching the web. What is important is that you find one that matches what you want to achieve. Essentially, the basics are a full-service provider where you can register, host, and build your website. It makes no sense to register your domain with one provider and then host it somewhere else.
Also, buyer-beware! I cannot stress this enough. Many domain registrars offer cheap, very cheap, domain name registration. The kicker is when you go to register it for the second year, you start paying way more than you ought to. Plus, in some instances, it is extremely difficult to move or port your domain name from the registrar to the hosting provider. As in all things, read the fine print. And, if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is.
Key point find a provider where you are in control. That is one of the reasons I have been a Website Web Hosting Services International customer for more than a decade.
By-the-way, in case you are wondering why you do not need savvy technical skills to build a website, the answer is that website builders take care of the technical jargon. This means you can focus on design and writing value added content.
What About an Online Store
You can easily create an online store using a website builder. This is another reason selecting the right website builder to partner with is important. You want to ensure they can provide full service.
The summary is simply this, whether shopping for a new vehicle, new computer or a website builder first determine what it is you want. Next, research the different suppliers. Third, check them out. When making a major purchase, you want to be sure the supplier can meet your needs. This theory holds true when selecting a website builder service provider.
