If you ask someone for an opinion on how to build a website, the most common response that one would receive may be, "Do I look like a computer geek to you?" Or simply "I don’t know." Building a website nowadays is much easier in contrast to years ago. You don’t need to possess mastery in software and coding. All one needs to do is to set aside some time and start building his website. Many mistakenly believe website building is expensive, but actually, it is quite affordable and available to almost everyone.
The first step one should take is to become comfortable with the procedure and terms as a layman. A domain name is basically the address of your website. To obtain one, you can go to websites called registrants and choose a name that suits your requirements. If the name you want is already in use, then you can buy it from the user, but you will have to pay a little more than usual.
The second step is finding a hosting company which is basically a server or a computer where the content of your website will reside or the place where the data is stored.
After completing these two tasks, you just have to start building your website, which can be done easily with the help of tools like website builder
and creators. These are software programs designed to accomplish the specific purpose of website building and designing. These are very user-friendly and flexible to the extent that anyone can use them without much hassle. Generally, this software gives you options to choose templates from premade websites
to those which you alter to some extent to personalize them. The process of personalization includes adding pictures, text and all the simple stuff like colors and fonts. All you have to do is to choose one design template that suits your need from a wide range of choices and then personalize it.
Now an important decision is to choose a website creator because each software is unique and offers its pros and cons. Some are very efficient and flexible enough to give you the liberty of doing whatever your heart desires, but for that, one needs a basic knowledge of coding or will require the assistance of a paid professional. Some don’t provide much room for creativity but can be handled by a newbie.
All these are the tools that will help you in building a website but one should also ponder over why he made that website and what he wants to communicate to the customer. One should know his customer base and profile through the heart and should understand the various limitations (technical, metaphysical) faced by that group.
