Ask These Three Simple Question to Create your Own Website Today!

  •  Are you going to develop an individual website?
  • Or would like to setup a business website?
  • Or need an eCommerce store for your business?

Decide which business category are you in. It’ll help you to get an idea about platforms you need to create your website.

Step – One

1.1 For Individual, Business or Blogger:
First you need a domain name & hosting service to run a website. As I’m a highly-satisfied user of BlueHost & Hostgator for years, I’d recommend them. Because they offer cheap hosting service with a free domain on 1st purchase. So, you’ll save your domain purchasing cost here.

Choose from below host:

 

Domain Selection:

You’re getting a free domain with BlueHost or Hostgator. So, you must do some research on your domain name before purchasing the hosting service. Do a proper analysis to find a suitable domain name.

Better to use some free tools such as: “Namemesh.com” where you’ll easily find domain name ideas and their availability.

Best Package to Choose:

Both BlueHost & Hostgator offer several hosting packages to meet different website needs. However, I would recommend buying a starter package because you are going to setup your 1st website.

Now you are all set with hosting and domain. It’ll take 2 minutes to setup your account.

1.2 For eCommerce Store

Shopify is the best platform to create your first ecommerce store. You can simply set it up and run your store within a few minutes.

The great news is Shopify provides both Domain Registration and Hosting Service too. You can simply get a domain name from them and start using their service. Or you can buy a domain from public domain sellers such as GoDaddy, NameCheap and point it to your Shopify store.

Steps to Create Shopify Website

  • Enter your email id and choose “get started” button
