Huntington, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2012 -- Not sure how to build a website? WebsiteCreationExperts.com has a five-step process that will let most anyone build a website.
“The first step is to decide on domain name. This is the name of the website” said Eric Taylor, owner of WebsiteCreationExperts.com. “This can be just about anything, but it really needs to identify what your website is about. If you plan to blog sports, then your domain needs to be something that fits that. Cooking sites need to have something about food.”
The name will also have to be original. Domain services can quickly find out if a domain is available or already taken.
“GoDaddy.com is a very popular domain site. The fees are reasonable and the customer service is very good,” Mr. Taylor said.
A host is necessary. The host will support the domain and website on the Internet. There are a number of companies which will host a website. Prices vary widely depending on the company and services offered.
“Hosting services also vary widely. They vary in price and the services they offer. HostGator.com is my preferred hosting service. They offer several different plans which will fit just about any budget,” he said.
Once the domain is configured at the site, WordPress can be used to create the site and embed content.
“WordPress is a blogging program that is very popular and very easy to use,” Mr. Taylor said. “It may be the most popular blog software on the planet. It certainly accounts for a lot of blogs and websites created by the owner.”
Once the site is up and running, it can be tweaked. If the site is going to be used for a business, rather than personal reasons, the site owner might considering hiring a web design firm.
“There are a number of things to look for in a web design company as well. Check out their site. Look for sites they have created and maintain. Shop around,” Mr. Taylor said.
