In 2020, anyone can build a website without knowing anything about web development, design, or coding. Whether you want to create a website for yourself or for your business, you can easily do that by using the right tools and resources and choosing the right agency.
How to Build a Website
to build a website or to know more about what you need to build a website, you need to follow the next steps in a professional way.
The domain name
(your custom web address, www.YourSite.com)
In order to build a website, the very first thing you’ll need is a domain name.
The domain name is your website name and address. That address is used by visitors when they try to find your site through their web browsers.
If you’re making a website for a business, your domain name should match your company name. For example YourCompanyName.com
If you’re planning to set up a personal website for yourself then YourName.com can be a great option.
Use a “generic” domain name extension such as .com, .net or .org if your goal is international visitors.
Use a “local” domain name extension such as .de, .fr, or .ru if your goal is country-targeted visitors.
Don’t worry if your preferred domain name is already taken. There are more than 300 million different domain names registered, but there are a billion other possibilities that are still available.
(service that hosts your website)
In addition to having a domain name, you’ll also need website hosting (web hosting).
Web hosting is a service that hosts and stores your website files (content) on a secure server that is always up and running. Without a web host, your site will not be accessible for others to read and browse.
(commonly used website platform)
Once you have your domain name and web hosting ready to go, you’ll need to choose and install a website building platform (also known as CMS).
We recommend choosing WordPress since it’s easy to use and comes with thousands of free designs and add-ons that make your website look professional and unique.
Setting up your WordPress website is easy, and your web host mostly does it for you, so you don’t really have to get your hands too dirty.
Customize Your Website Design and Structure
With your bare website alive and kicking, it’s now time to make it feel more like your own by picking a nice design, customizing it, and adding branding elements.
Don’t forget to add a logo, The first thing that most users want to do is upload their logo and have it displayed in the top left corner of the site. Let’s do that now. And you need to customize colors and fonts as well.
Add Content/Pages to Your Website
Pages are the essence of your website. It’s hard to imagine a website without any pages on it, right?
From a technical point of view, a web page is just a document on the web. It’s not very different from your traditional Word document apart from it having your website’s branding elements such as the header and footer.
Web pages are easy to create in WordPress. But before we get into the how-to, let’s discuss what pages you should create in the first place.
Most websites will find the following pages essential:
Homepage: it’s the first page that your visitors see when they go to your website
About page: a page explaining what your website is about
Contact page: a page letting visitors contact you.
Blog page: a listing of your most recent blog posts; if you’re not planning on blogging, you can use the blog page as a place for your company news and announcements.
Services page: if the website you’re building is for a business, use this page to showcase your services.
Shop page: for companies that want to launch an eCommerce store
And after that,
you can launch your website and use it perfectly!
But remember, If you are not an expert at coding and building websites, we strongly recommend you choose the right agency to boost your business and make the website for you. And that’s what Muzaed if offering through web development services.
