How to set up your own website

It has become relatively easy to design a website. When setting up your own web design, you should begin by putting the design on a paper. Draw a rough draft highlighting the spaces where you intend the text and images to be. You should use free-hand and sketching placement. You can then make use of a program such as Photoshop to design the color-schemes. Decide on the way you intend the text to appear. Make a good choice for the colors, font sizes, fonts, italics, bold face and others.


You will then be required to decide on hosting. This is where you will have the website, and its pages put. Without the hosting provider, no one else will be able to see your website other than you. There are various web hosting types that you can choose from depending on your needs and budget. These may include free or standard web hosting. You may also choose coloration or even a dedicated, shared and virtual hosting. While most people choose the free web hosting, there are drawbacks to it. You may not get enough space, and at times you may be required to put their advertisements on your site. Therefore, where you choose this avenue, you should be sure to read the terms carefully. It may be necessary to use the free web hosting to test your web pages.


Consider whether you will require a domain name. It is possible to put a website on either paid or free hosting without a domain name. However, a domain name may be necessary to provide an extra branding for the site and also make it easy for the users to remember the URL. The names usually come at a cost which may range from $8 to $35 in a year.

It is necessary to plan your website after you have gotten the domain name. Consider the site type and what it intends to focus on. The website could consist of news, products or even reference. Think about the content which is an actual page which you will be building.


When you begin building the website, there are certain issues that you should be conversant with. Think of the elements of a perfect design and how to make use of it on the pages. In this regard, it may be necessary for you to have an idea on what is likely to interest your visitors. Ensure that you balance the noticeability of the page’s visual elements. You can do this by including bigger things, strong colors and high contrasts. Take time to learn about the HTML, CSS and choosing the web page editors.

You should then have the website published. This involves taking the web pages created to a hosting provider. You can do this through the FTP clients or using the tools provided by the provider. You can contact them for details. After this you should begin promoting the website. The easiest avenue for doing this is through SEO whereby you build the web content in a manner that it will rank well in the search engine rankings.
