Everyone who is connected to internet will always love to see his name on a Google search page; get to see his website among the top popular websites. So here I am, trying to explain some tips regarding your own website creation. The steps are mentioned in sequence regarding how to create your website.
1. Getting your Domain name
Domain Name is the name you want to give to your website. Choosing a domain name is very important as the search rankings will depend heavily upon it. You have many registrars who provide you the rights for using that domain name, and you pay an annual fee to them. Getting the domain doesn’t give you a website, but yes it is the starting point of having your website.
2. Finding a suitable webhost and getting an account
A webhost can be defined or depicted as a company which has many computers connected to the Internet. If you place your webpage on their computers, it can be accessed and connected by users worldwide. To create a home for your website, you can sign up with an account with the webhost.
After getting a Web Host account you can direct your domain to the account. For more information please see Post-Buying Domain Name Tips
