When I decided to do an online selling business I was not aware of where to start. So, I took to the internet for a knowledge build up. The first and foremost requirement was to have a website to represent your business and have it published online. I learned and implemented the sequential procedures of building the website. Now I have successfully launched my business and here I would like to share all resources to help you create your website too.
Firstly, I had to do was to decide on the web site building platform. Since I had no experience of coding in HTML or CSS, and it was taking time to master it, I decided to choose the popular WordPress. I am sure you must have heard of this term off-late. It is a content management system or a website development platform, which is user-friendly and easy to use.
The second step was to choose a web hosting service company which provides server space for my website for a nominal cost. The factors I need to consider in choosing a good host provider are uptime (maximum time for which your website can be up without fail), bandwidth (speed of website hosting) and disk space (how much space to save my website). I researched for hostgator vs bluehost to compare both the providers because both are competent in speed and uptime provided.
The third step was to get a domain name for my website. And this was easily available with the web hosting companies. Web hosting costs are not as much as movie ticket!
Lastly, I installed the WordPress to the domain using the one-click installation provided by the web host. Then added content to the website, highlighted it with themes and colors. After website creation, click on launch button and there you go live!
