How to Build a Free Website Online
Let’s get right to the heart of the matter. I can confidently show you how to build a free website online because I was able to create the basic structure for my first website, and view it live on the Web, in less than 10 minutes. Very simply, building a website and creating an online presence is absolutely critical to successfully earning money online. You can’t possibly proceed without it.
Even more importantly, your website must contain informative, quality content that will draw visitors to your site. I know this all sounds daunting because I was in your shoes. But trust me, it isn’t. The tools available today are amazing!
Gone are the days when creating a website requires any technical programming expertise. I’m certainly not a computer guru! Most of you have created word documents in programs like Microsoft Word. You’ll find that working in a website builder is a very similar experience.
What are the key steps you must take to build a website?
In a nutshell, here are the four key steps:
(1) Choose a Topic for Your Website – This is often referred to as your niche and can be literally any topic in which you have an interest. You should be passionate about this interest. You will be regularly writing engaging content and articles for your site, and you want this adventure to be fun.
(2) Obtain a Domain Name – A domain name is a unique identifier that is basically the address of your web page on the Internet. Domain names can be purchased from various providers such as GoDaddy.com or NameCheap.com.
(3) Select a Web Hosting Company – Web hosting companies provide a home or storage space for your website files on a server. There are many options for web hosting services. Some companies such as GoDaddy.com provide free hosting if you purchase your domain name from them.
(4) Choose a Content Management System (CMS) – A CMS allows you to create, publish and manage
your website. There are a number of free programs you can select from including WordPress, the most widely used CMS on the Web.
