Having your own websites has never been easier, especially in Perth, as website services are abundant all throughout the city. It can be as easy as calling up a preferred website service and they’ll do everything for you. However, making websites can also be done personally without the help of a website specialist. The following step-by-step process below will help you build your own website without the hassle on your budget of letting someone else build it for you:
1. Obtaining a domain name
The domain name is the most basic requisite in building a website as it is the name of the site itself. Getting a domain name is similar to getting your business registered or getting a license to operate a business. To get your domain name, you have to pay a fee to your domain name registry of choice.
2. Shop for a web host
A web host is similar to the office of your business. Your website must have a home or an office for it to operate in. A web host is simply a company that operates a network that connects itself to the internet. Signing up your website to a web host will allow the web host to place your site into their network for the whole internet to see.
3. Web page design
This part is the more difficult stage in creating a website as you’ll need to be able to understand how to design web pages. However, if you have a little bit of cash left in your budget, you can hire a web designer to build the pages for you. Elsewise, you’ll need to acquaint your self with web design. The good thing is that there are a lot of web editor programs for free download in the internet. Most of them are easy to use and even function just the same as a word editor program on your computer.
There are commercial programs for web design as well which may function better than the free web editors but are more expensive and are comparatively complicated to use. The good news is that there are tutorials out there on the internet which can help you design your own website.
4. Open your website
Once your page designs have been uploaded on your preferred web host, your website is ready to go. However, you’ll need to personally open your website in order to see how well it integrates itself with the many internet browsers available as some websites do not function well in other browsers. Testing your site in different browsers is a preferred step to do in order to look for errors that need fine-tuning.
