Step 1: Choosing a Domain Name
A domain name is simply an address to your website (ie. google.com). The best domain names for how to make a website are short, descriptive and have a .com, .net or .org extension. Also, a good domain name will be easy to spell, easy to remember and indicate what your website is about.
Easier said than done, right? Try this…
Come up with a list of primary keywords related to the topic of your website. I suggest coming up with at least 10 keywords. Then, add prefixes such as the, my, top, pro, best, super, ultra, etc. and suffixes such as central, point, site, portal, web, net, etc. If you need help coming up with various prefixes and suffixes, then use Google. Simply search for “domain prefixes suffixes” and your first few results should be what are looking for.
By now you should have a good size list of potential domain names. Now we need to find out if any of these domain names are available. To do this, I recommend using a bulk domain search tool such as the one at dynadot.com. But, again, you can find these domain search tools by doing a simple Google search such as “bulk domain search”. kodulehe valmistamine
Step 2: Choosing a Hosting Plan
As for a domain hosting service for how to make a website, I recommend sticking to a popular, well known “brand” such as Go Daddy, HostGator, Bluehost, BrainHost, etc. I recommend going with a hosting service that will give you a free domain of your choice when you sign up for one of their plans. If you are unable to find a hosting service that provides a free domain upon sign-up, then you can purchase your domain through a provider such as namecheap.com. The domain and hosting do not have to be purchased through the same provider!
You do not need an expensive web hosting service to build a website! Stick with the plans that run between $5 and $10 per month. Make sure your domain is hosted on a Linux based server and has cPanel and WordPress. I also recommend that you purchase a plan that has free unlimited domain hosting. This will allow you to add future domains, known as add-on domains, to the same plan without having to fork over even more money to buy more plans.
Step 3: Installing WordPress
Now for the fun part on how to make website! Once you have purchased your domain and hosting, you should have received an email from your hosting provider with important account information. In this email, look for where it makes note of the cPanel web address, username and password. Write this information down and keep it in a safe place!
1) In a web browser such as Internet Explorer, type in the cPanel web address in the URL box of the web browser and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
2) Type in your cPanel username and password and press the Enter key.
3) Once in cPanel, scroll down until you see the section “Software/Services” and click on the icon “Fantastico De Luxe”.
4) Once in Fantistico, on the left, look for the “Blogs” section and click on the “WordPress” link.
5) Under “WordPress” click on the “New Installation” link.
6) Type in the requested information and click the “Install WordPress” button.
7) Click on the “Finish Installation” button.
That’s all there is to how to make a website! You now have a website up and running! Try it out, go to your domain in a web browser and see what happens. Next, let’s personalize your website a bit…
