There are basically 4 steps
involved in building a website.
1. Buying the domain name or
.com, for instance the
domain name of this website is
Buying your domain name (contrary to popular belief)
is simple and completely inexpensive. Godaddy.com
sells domain names for $9, and the checkout process is
as simple as buying a shirt on ebay.
2. Ordering hosting.
Your web host is the company you pay a fee to hold
your website on the internet. I'm not going to get
into this much because its kind of confusing for the
average computer user, that is one great reason why
you pay these people to take care of your website
hosting. When you order hosting say for instance from
127hosting, you will receive your login information
within 6 hours. With this information (your username &
password that we assign to you) you can upload your
website to the internet.
3. Website design.
The design of your website can be done before you buy
your domain name and hosting or you can wait until
your website is designed. There are basically two ways
you can build your website, one is with raw html and
the other is with a helper program. I don't recommend
just starting out in web design trying to edit with
html. You will get frustrated and probably will not
understand anything that is going on.
Especially if you learn from a college class.
In 127hostings online web design school we teach you
how to do web design by showing you how to use web
design helper programs and it is extremely simple, all
you have to do is follow the directions.
4. Uploading your website to the internet.
This is done with a program called an FTP program.
These programs are simple to use and we make it even
easier in the web design school because we break the
process down step by step with pictures. I don't mean
to diss on college again but I didn't learn one single
thing about how to use an ftp program in my courses.
That's all there is to building a website. Step 1 and
2 can be done in a matter of minutes. Step 3 and 4 can
be done in about an hour just by following 127hostings
