Sharing is caring!

There can be a lot of reasons to create your own website. Like, you probably travel the world and want to create a blog to share some stories and pictures. Or you want to create your own brand and open an online store and make money from your website. Creating websites doesn’t cost too much. In the future, you can even make a profit off them and the money will return back to you. So check this little information about creating a website before you start making your own.

Buying a domain

The first step that you have to do to create a website is buying a domain. Domain basically means the name of your site. When you came up with an idea of how your website will call, you have to buy this to have rights to the name of this website and then it will be only for you. Buying a website it’s not that hard, you have to go to the websites that offer buying domain services, like godaddy.com, domain.com, bluehost.com, hostgator.com and on the internet, you can find a lot more.

Down below you can check if the name of your website that you want to create is available to buy.

Here on my video, you can see how I bought mine :

Buying hosting service

To be honest, in the beginning, I thought that I will buy a domain, and then I can start designing my website, but in reality, there is a process to start designing your website. Now after you bought your domain you have to find a hosting company that will get your website name to the internet. Hosting means that the company gives you an offer to put the domain on the internet and they will store your whole data, like pictures, music, post and etc. The companies that offer you hosting is mostly the same as companies that offer you buying a domain, so it’s good to check where the price is better and who has a better offer or you can buy the domain in one company and buy hosting in another as I did. 🙂

Here is the cheapest hosting and more that I found on the internet. I read a lot of good opinions about bluehost.com, so you can check what they have to offer.

Designing your website

Now it’s the hardest part because there are a lot of things to do. First, you have to find a website building platform. I recommend you to use WordPress because it’s one of the easiest platforms that you can find and a lot of well-known websites use this. The first thing that you have to do is to find the best theme that fits your requirements. Then you have to learn how to design the website to not look like trash. On your website, you have to have things that I didn’t know that is required, like having a page about Terms and conditions, Privacy policy, about cookies. Don’t forget to add a contact form, so people could send you a message and page with information about you, so people will know you better.

Here is the video where I’m showing you how I designed my website. Video is shorter than the time I spend on creating but check it out.

  1. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and actual
    effort to make a very good article… but what
    can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t seem
    to get nearly anything done.
