How to Get Started

Websites require lots of effort, planning, and creativity. There are many methods to create a website, you can choose your own at your convenience. You can either choose to write codes for your website or hire a professional to write code for your website, There are some other ways which require no coding skills like:

WordPress

Wix

Shopify

Squarespace

And many others but these are the best.

What are Domain and Hosting?

A domain is like the address of a property and hosting is like the space in which the property is situated.

A domain is the name of the website along with extensions .com, .in or .org

And hosting is the space on the server where all data of your website is stored.

You can choose platforms for hosting like:

Wix, Shopify, and Squarespace provide hosting with a website builder facility.

or, you can choose to host providers like hostinger, Bluehost etc for providing space for a website where you can install WordPress to design your website.

How to find a name for your website 

Your website name selection is the most difficult task because the name has already been taken.

To find a name you can go to namechck.com, here you can search for your name if it is taken or not as well as you can also find all other platforms if available for that name.

or, you can use an AI name generator tool like namelix.

How to make your website secure

Most of the websites do not secure signs when you try to access them, it is because they are not SSL certified. SSL stands for secure socket layer, which is used to keep user data secure, verify ownership of the website, and prevent attackers from creating a fake version of the site and other threats.

Remember when you buy a domain add an SSL certificate to your cart. 

A website without an SSL certificate HTTP

A website with SSL certificate HTTPS

How to build it

You can try building your website with WordPress or you can hire a professional to build it for you. I am suggesting WordPress because 43% of the world’s website is on WordPress. It is easy to use, and any non-professional user can make minor website changes.

For small businesses, you can make small changes and some useful updates by yourself.

Also, you can try Wix, Shopify, and Squarespace, these are also easy to use and they also provide some special features which help you to automate your store.

Designing a website involves several steps, including the following:

  1. Define the purpose and goals of the website: What do you want the website to accomplish? Who is the target audience?
  2. Research and gather inspiration: Look at other websites in your industry to see what works and what doesn’t. Make a list of features and design elements that you want to include on your website.
  3. Create a wireframe: A wireframe is a visual representation of the layout and structure of your website. It helps you plan the placement of elements such as the header, navigation, content areas, and footer.
  4. Design the visual elements: This includes creating a color scheme, choosing fonts, and designing any graphics or images that will be used on the website.
  5. Develop the website: This involves writing the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code to build the website. You can use a content management system (CMS) such as WordPress or build the website from scratch.
  6. Test and debug: Before launching the website, it’s important to test it on different devices and browsers to ensure that it works properly and looks good on all of them.
  7. Launch the website: Once you have tested and debugged the website, you can publish it and make it live for the world to see.

Designing a website can be a complex process, but with careful planning and attention to detail, you can create a professional and effective website that meets the needs of your business or organization.
