A domain name is your website’s digital and you must register it so that you can actually use it legally, which is quite similar to registering the name of your business. When choosing a domain name for your website, you need to make sure you keep it short and simple, as well as avoid any hyphens and abbreviations. It needs to be catchy and pretty easy to remember. It needs to really stand out in order for people to be able to recognize your brand instantly.

Many web hosting providers include a free domain name in their hosting packages,
  5. 5. Find a Good Web Hosting Provider Finding a web hosting provider is another vital step before actually developing your website. You need a web host because your website needs to be uploaded on a web server in order for it to be accessible on the Web. If you merely create a website and do not get a web hosting package for it, no one will actually be able to see, let alone access your website. However, you need to pay attention to a lot of factors when choosing a web hosting provider, so that you can be sure that the company you choose can provide you with the best possible services for your business. Some of the crucial factors you need to look out for include bandwidth, web space, backup services, uptime, access speed, website security and customer support, just to name a few. Another important factor to be considered is reliability so, before you choose a particular web host, make sure you check out the online reviews of their previous clients to learn about the quality of the services they offer.
  6. 6. Last, but not the least, you should pay attention to the price, but it should definitely not be of your primary concern, since, after all, you get what you pay for. Nevertheless, many web hosting providers offer excellent services at a very reasonable price, so thorough research before making a final decision is definitely vital. Choose an Approach to Building Your Website There are two approaches you can take when building your website. Namely, you can use a content management system (CMS) or a website builder, both of which can have your website up and running in no time. No matter what approach you choose, you can create your website quickly and easily and, more importantly, both can help you maintain your site and upload every type of content you need.
  7. 7. The most popular CMSs are WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, but the dominating platform for creating websites is, without a question, WordPress, and it is the best choice for newbies. It is completely free of charge, with the exception of some themes and plugins, and it offers thousands of themes that can help you make your website look professional and sophisticated. When it comes to the most popular website builders, the ones you can choose from are Wix, Weebly and Squarespace, to name just a few, and they offer very easy-to-use tools for both building and maintaining a website. If you opt for a website builder, make sure you choose the one that will best suit your business needs.
