Everyone wants a website. If you are one of them, then you are in the right place. We need three things to create a website.
STEP 1: CHOOSE RIGHT PLATFORM
If you want to quickly create a good, mobile friendly and functional website, then you have to choose a platform. there are many platforms like Word press, Joomla, Drupal etc. you can choose according to your nice/topic.
For some platforms you need to know some HTML / CSS or other coding languages, so you really need to decide where you are in terms of website building capability. If you are a newbie then you would be best to choose WordPress.
STEP2: REGISTER DOMAIN AND CHOOSE HOSTING
After choosing the platform next step is to get a domain name and hosting. WordPress provides free hosting and domain name. But hosting they give you is really slow. And the free domain name that you give is useless as a sub-domain and you will see unprofessional(which will impact on your Google ranking).
If you are creating a website for the first time then you can get free service of WordPress. And if you are serious about building a website, then you can get paid services.
Choose your hosting plan
