How to make a website
A website is a collection of web pages that can be accessed via the internet from any place in the world. There are two ways of how a website can be built. One is by coding and another one is by website builders. In order to build a website, we need to follow three main steps.
The above three are the most basic steps to build a website. There are many more things needed to make one. Let’s describe in detail.
A domain is mainly the address we usually see in our web browser. ex. www.yourwebsite.com. Each and every domain is different from others. It’s the unique identification of a website. To get a domain we have to register one. It cost around 10$ to 50$ per year. Most common domain name extensions are .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov etc.
Hosting is a service by which we can have a space to store our website contents. It’s a server that always runs. Most affordable hosting can cost 3$ to 10$ per month. A hosting company provides many facilities. Domain name with SSL, Custom e-mail, Unlimited bandwidth, 24/7 customer services, etc.
After we secure the Domain and Hosting, we can now head towards the building part.
You don’t need to worry if you do not know these languages. There are some builders that help you to build a website without any coding. Among themes, WordPress is a widely used platform. 35% of the websites are being built by WordPress. It is very popular because of the one-click installs facility and it’s easy to use. Anyone having some basic computer and internet knowledge can use WordPress and build a website.
Firstly, we need to collaborate with the WordPress site with our hosting partner. Then test it by typing the domain. If everything went well your website will show successfully. After that, we should verify the SSL or HTTPS settings. If this step complete successfully we need to then customize the design and structure.
WordPress provides some free and some paid themes. We can find our required one. Now our work is to add content. We also need to add our identifications, which means our logo and other related photos or texts. We can change the color scheme to our brand color. After all these touchups our website is ready to be published. Before publishing, we should test everything.
Congratulations! Now you know how to build a websit.
