There are 4 basic steps in creating a website:
Step 1: Domain Name (URL) Registration -- This is the address people will use to access your Web site (www.yourcompany.com). Once you have determined that the URL you wish to use is available, the cost to register a name is anywhere from about ?.00 upwards per year. A domain name needs to be renewed every year.
Step 2: Design of the Web Site -- This is where the look, feel, and content of the Web site are determined and created.
Step 3: Hosting Your Web Site on a Web Server -- This is basically where you rent space on a computer that is always connected to the Internet. Price will vary, depending on the amount of disk space you will have and the connection to the Internet, but starts at about ?0 per year.
Step 4: Marketing Your Web Site -- You should be thinking about the marketing of your Web site as it is being designed. The content of the site needs to reflect the search terms people will use when looking for your site.
There are two essential elements to a good Web site, both of which are equally important. Firstly, good and innovative design ensures that the site is memorable and encourages the viewer to explore beyond the home page. Secondly, the functionality and programming that underpin this.
