website building and hosting in easy steps

Website building and hosting is not a very big task .But before you start thinking about the look and feel , colour , content of your site you have to have following thing done first

  1. Have your Domain name  .

Domain name is your online identity for example shabdd.com , google.com . Here .com is a domain type , you can use other domain also like .in  or .net  .com  is for commercial websites. Your  domain name can be any-thing provided that it  should be available . You can check the availability here . You can get it from Go-daddy or Big Rock or any other vendor .

  1. Have a hosting  platform.

Hosting is the space into the  server  to keep  your website like code files , data  images  etc . Space size depends on the scale of business , I would prefer  to take Linux  based hosting as it is cheaper .  You can go for dedicated servers but that would be costly.

  1. CMS Installation.

If you are ready with above two things  you need to a install  a CMS of your choice . CMS  is a content management system , it is a ready-made framework  for fast website building . If you are a non technical person don’t worry about  that , it  is very simple to use .

There are various CMS available like Word press , Joomla , Modex etc  I would suggest  word press  it is the best and simple to use , It has variety of themes and pluggins.
