HOW TO BUILD A BUSINESS OR BLOG WEBSITE
A website is a central location that gives you an online presence and makes you or your business accessible around the globe. A website is accessible via the internet by making use of a computer or cell phone. With the current upsurge in technology, a website is relatively important for anyone who wants to start a business or who simply enjoys blogging (writing). A website provides you with the opportunity to improve your business, accelerate your sales level and grants you unlimited online presence. Even when you’re asleep, your website can work for you as it is online 24 hours of the day.
If you want to start a basic business or blog website, here’s how to go about it:
STEP 1: FIND A DOMAIN NAME
A domain name is a friendly URL people can type into their browser to get to your website. It may include what your website is all about. For instance, if your website is for food recipes, your domain name can be, www.foodrecipe.com or foodies.com.ng.
Domain names usually cost between $8 and $35 a year and they can be registered at a number of sites online. You can find available domain names and prices here: namecheap.com
STEP 2: FIND A HOSTING COMPANY
Most times, you can get domain name registration and web hosting services from the same provider. Hosting your site is like paying house rent for a house you want to live in. It requires paying for all the pages, images, documents and all other resources that you want displayed on your site.
STEP 3: CHOOSE A WEBSITE PLATFORM
A website platform gives you the opportunity to choose a design for your website. There are several website platforms today in the world. One of the best website platforms is wordpress as it is simpler and easier to use.
STEP 4: DESIGN
For your website to attract people, it needs to be beautifully designed. But ensure that you are not solely focused on its beauty, make it easy to navigate and make sure the website has a clear purpose.
STEP 5: CONTENT
No one will visit your website even if it is beautifully designed when it has no content to offer. Provide unique and interesting content for your blog or website to attract the right target market for your website.
