Website creation is something that beginners like you can view as a good prospect. If you create the website yourself, you can mold it to your liking and add as many or as little elements as you like. However, website creation is not an easy task, and you, as beginners, have to look at the things that you need before you actually begin maximizing your web space. The best tip to starting /website creation/ is to get a good domain name.
How do you get a domain name? Website creation begins with getting a domain registered under your name, like buying a lot before building a house. Do not rush into this step if you are not sure about what you are doing. Make sure you have a marketing plan to back you up and guide you through the process. Once you are sure that you are ready, then it is time to get your website online. That means that you should register or reserve your domain name. Your domain name is nothing but your website’s name. It is what makes up your website address and it can end in .com, .org, .net, .info or the suffixes of your country like .de, .us or it can also be the suffix of your business like .tv or .biz. There are a lot of domain names to choose from, and you can maximize the catchiness of your website by choosing the right one.
Once you have registered the name of your domain, the next step is to select your web host. The web host is basically the basis or the foundation of your website. Sometimes you can see a website that says at the bottom of the home page: “Powered by (web host name)”. This means that that website is being sponsored or “hosted” by that particular service. This is where you can create your pages and publish them into the internet. It is where you can add different website functions like email and IM and even order forms. This is where you log in to maintain and protect your site from malware.
But before going that far, you need to focus on finding a good domain name for your business. If being on top of search engine listings is important for your business, say you are going worldwide, then instead of putting the name of your business in the domain name, you will get more results by putting keywords on the domain name. For example, you have a company called Slim Body Pro, and you sell slimming belts and other slimming clothing. So instead of using slimbodypro.com, you can get more visitors and higher search engine ranking by using slimming-belts-and-clothing.com.
Lastly, do not make the domain name too long. The maximum length of a domain name is around 63 to 65 characters, but you do not have to make it that long. Other than it will be hard to remember, it will be a hassle to type in. If the domain name you chose will be longer than two words, use hyphens to separate them, which will make it easier to understand and remember.
