Step 1 - Register a Domain Name
Many established hosting companies offer free domain name registration with their website hosting packages. Use our domain name checker to find if the domain name you want is available. The checking tool uses Bluehost which has free domain name registration included with their hosting packages.
Step 2 - Get a Web Hosting PackageA web hosting service enables your website to be accessed over the internet. Without web hosting, your website cannot be viewed online. There are many hosting servers to choose from but we recommend Bluehost because of their reliability and cheap pricing. Additionally they have WordPress support which allows for easy creation of websites using pre built website templates.
Some web hosting packages include more features than other packages and are not always easy to understand. Below is some information about what the hosting options are. Think about what your website requires and choose the best package for you.
Step 3 - Create a WebsiteThe last step is making your website. For this step, we highly recommend using WordPress. Most websites and blogs are made using WordPress because it's free and easy to use. Also, all reliable and established hosting companies have one click installation for WordPress.
When you have your login for your hosting account, you will need to login and install WordPress. As mentioned above, it's a simple one click installation and after it is installed you can then browse to www.yourdomainname.com/wp-admin and begin creating your website.
Once WordPress is installed into your hosting account, you can browse the free templates, then choose one you like and start adding your content. Alternatively, you can search for a template using the built-in search function. Once you are done, click 'Publish' which will publish your website to the internet for all to view.
So now your website is on the internet, how about getting some traffic to your website. This is where Google search comes into play. The higher ranking your website becomes, the higher priority it gets in Google's search engine results page. Here we have more information on how to get to the top of Google search .
