There are various reasons why you may want your own website…
If you are thinking of starting an online business one of the first things you will need to do is get yourself a website in place.
If you have an existing business you may want to have your own piece of the internet for your customers to visit ‘out of hours’.
Maybe you just want your own personal website for a different purpose.
Whatever the reasons for wanting a website, it can be a daunting prospect if you have never tackled anything like this before
You may think you need to hire a company of programmers or web designers to get your website up and running. You could do this, but the cost of doing so can be a little more than you are prepared to spend.
Besides if you go down this route and you do hire one of these companies then what happens when you want to change something on your web page? Even if its just one sentence, changing the colour scheme or changing a picture, it could take time and cost you money.
Wouldn’t it be easier, not to have to worry about these issues and simply change things yourself?
You may be thinking that you don’t know how to write code…
Or you don’t have the necessary IT skills to do that sort of thing…
Or it’s just too much of a complicated thing for you to tackle…
You may even be thinking that you wouldn’t know where to start…
Well you are not alone, a lot of people have these reservations when faced with the same prospect.
The good news is nowadays building your own website is not that difficult, in fact you could have your own website up and running from scratch in just one single afternoon.
You don’t need to know coding…
You don’t need any IT skills…
and it really isn’t as difficult as you may think.
As for where to start…
That’s what I’m about to tell you!
You may be thinking the simple way is to head off to wix or Weebly and put together a free drag and drop website and while this is true if you just want your website as a bit of fun or for non business purposes, If you want to be taken seriously as a business then you will need your own website with your own web address.
You see your website is often the first experience a potential customer has of your business and if you are offering products or services on a website from a free provider what kind of image do you think this gives to your browsing prospect?
So a small investment now will pay dividends in the future and save you from the inevitable and sometimes very complicated task of changing to a paid for website somewhere further down the line.
Besides you can create your own website, with your own domain name for less than $10 a month, not bad eh? kodulehe tegemine
I know the idea of buildingkodulehe tegemin your own website from scratch can be a daunting one but it really is not as bad as you may think.
Choose and Purchase a name
The First thing you will need to do before you start anything is to decide on a name for your website.
I like to sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and write out various different ideas for my website name, I generally want to come up with at least three that I like because chances are someone has already taken one of the names you come up with.
Now obviously only you will have an idea what you want your website to be called but usually it will be something relating to the particular area or niche that you are currently operating in.
For example If you sell videos teaching how to play golf you might want something such as: beginnersgolfvideos.com
If you are having trouble coming up with a name for your website there are resources out there that can help you decide on a name.
Once you have your ideas for you website name then we can go and look at a domain name provider to purchase your chosen name.
A domain name is not expensive and will usually cost you between $6 to $12 a Year.
Towards the end of the your domain name expiry, your provider will send you an email asking if you would like to renew your name and then its up to you whether you decide to keep it or just let it expire.
There are numerous domain name providers out there but they all offer you a fairly similar service and price, it’s always worth it to just have a look around and see what offers you can get
