Building a website from scratch is easier than ever.
With the right tools and systems, building a great website is easier than ever. You don’t need a lot of coding knowledge, and you don’t need to spend part of your budget to hire a web developer. In fact, all you need is a computer with a good internet connection and an hour or two of time.

In this step by step guide, I want to show you exactly what you need to build a website from scratch. In the end, you will have a website to display and without any headache.

Every single website on the Internet requires two things to work.

  • Domain name. This is the unique URL name for your website typically followed by a .com, .org, .net, etc.
  • Web host. This is where your website “lives.” It’s the servers you use to store your website’s information.

Determine the main purpose of your website
Your domain name is one of the most important features of your website. This is the URL that you will share with your current and potential customers and promote on social media. Therefore, you want it to be descriptive and easy to remember and understand. Every website needs a “host,” a server where all data is stored so that the public can access it at any time. As a small business, hosting your own website is just too much of an expense, so you will need to select an external host.

Create your website
A good website is more than a static home page. You will want to create several pages dedicated to different aspects of your business, such as a detailed catalog of your products or services, or a blog section for company updates. You can build your site using online building platforms, or you can build your site directly from code. For a construction with pure code, it is advisable to use clones of computer scripts as a base.
