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
- 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 .
- 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.
- 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.
