5 Tips for Building Your Own Website

You don’t have to be a computer genius to create your own website. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to have any previous computer knowledge or technical skills. However, what you must have is a willingness to learn new things, along with a good deal of patience. With these two things, you can design a website with even the most basic of Internet knowledge and skills. How? Here are five tips for building your own website with minimal web skills:
The basic setup. First, you need to understand that there are two basic steps to establishing your site’s presence, before you can even get into the design aspects. First, you will need to choose a domain name (or, the name of your website). Then you will need to choose a company to host your domain. You can usually get your domain name and hosting from the same company, and it pays to shop around.
Web design made easy. There are a number of great design platforms that are free to use and super-easy to navigate. Depending on the purpose of your website, you may choose to go with WordPress, Blogger, Weebly, Wix, or another. Do your research to choose which is best for you.
Templates. From your web design platform of choice, you can choose a pre-made template to work with. WordPress, for example, offers hundreds of free templates for WordPress users, or you can even purchase a template elsewhere and upload it into your WordPress site. Then simply fill out your template according to your site’s scope and purpose.
Finding help. If you are unclear about your web design or building choices at any step along the way, it is easy to find a varietal feast of information on whatever you are looking for simply by searching YouTube or any search engine for your subject of choice.
Plug-ins. Plug-ins enable you to do a multitude of fancy things with your site – galleries and forums, for example – without any knowledge of computer code whatsoever. Whichever web design platform you choose, you will be able to find a wide array of plug-ins that you can use to customize your website and make it do exactly what you want it to do . . . and all you have to do is pick them and download them into your site!
It is possible to create a visually appealing, effective, and successful website with very little web knowledge. You just have to be willing to do your research and put some serious time and thought into what you want your creation to end up like.
