6 Steps To Your Own Website

Written by Klaas Koopman


A lot of people these days are interested in getting their own place onrepparttar world wide web. Whether itīs a personal site like a blog, or a business site, they all need to have a decent plan before they get started.

A few years ago I started designing and creating websites myself. I started just to show off to others, but I noticed it wasnít as easy I thought it was. I mean, it is easy to get a site online; you just buy a template, pay a coder, and pay some one to insert content and advertise for you then youíre done. But if you want to do things yourself, thatís where it gets tricky.

After a few sites, I managed to find a certain pattern inrepparttar 131621 process of creating and managing my websites.

1. I always start with an idea for subject and content. Believe me - never create a website about something you hate and know nothing about. Instead create a website about something you know a lot about and like to tell other people about. What also works is writing about a subject you would like to know more on, after doing your own research. Newbies can explain information to other newbies easier then proīs explaining information to newbies.

2. Then I think of a design to go with it, to reflect its idea. Like if your subject is Boats, then donít go with a flaming red design. Sure it could do it, but I would prefer for a blue, water-like design to reflect its subject.

3. Ifrepparttar 131622 design is done, you need to get it coded. Some create their designs while they code, but I prefer to use a graphical program to first createrepparttar 131623 whole design, justrepparttar 131624 way I want it to be. Then I slice it all (contact me if you want to read an article about that) and save it forrepparttar 131625 web. I usually have a small group of coders I trust to code my designs and they send it back to me when itís coded.

4. Well then everything is almost done you would think. You got a design coded and everything. Butrepparttar 131626 answer is NO. You are just starting. Sure you have a site and all, but you do not have hosting or a domain name. In order to get your site up and running, you will need something called hosting. Itís like when you buy a house it needs to be on ground. Wellrepparttar 131627 hosting isrepparttar 131628 ground here, and your website isrepparttar 131629 house. Without hosting, your site is almost useless. These days you can choose between free hosts, which in my opinion arenít great, but if you want to start and try out, Iíd suggest you work with a free host first. And then there is paid hosting, you pay for a certain amount of server space and bandwidth and sometimes extra features.
