You registered the perfect domain name and selected a web hosting plan that will take your website exactly where you want it to go, and SKGOLD® Hosting helped you work out those details. Now, you need to complete the process and build your website, and we’re here for you again. Read on to get a better handle on your options, then let us lend a hand so you can get this thing launched.

Choose Your Website Building Tools:

You have lots of options when it comes to website building tools, and you can choose the right one once you understand what each offers.

1 Website Builder - as a first-time designer/creator, you’ll be happy to learn that you can create a terrific website with virtually no technical expertise when you use the Website Builder at SKGOLD® Hosting. It includes over 450 professional templates, a photo gallery, a text editor with spell checking, a form builder and more – honestly, what more do you need to show the online world what you’re made of and where you’re going?

2 Content Management System - a content management system (CMS) is a sophisticated software package that lets you control your web content, down to the tiniest detail. It’s a great way to go when you need to change, update and add to your content frequently. WordPress and Joomla are two of the most popular CMS systems out there, and SKGOLD® Hosting makes it easy for you to create your website using either one with 1-click installationdirectly through your webhosting control panel (cPanel).

3 Commercial and Open-source Software - these “what you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) tools make it extremely simple for a newly-minted web creator to design and launch a professional-looking website. Adobe Dreamweaver is perhaps the most popular among commercial pre-packaged programs; it’s user friendly and versatile, although some folks find it somewhat pricey. You can keep the cost down and still produce website gold with an open-source web design program like KompoZer, powered by Mozilla.

4 Do-It-Yourself - when you hear the word “code” in the context of a website, think HTML (hypertext markup language), CSS (cascading style sheets) and PHP (hypertext preprocessor). Choose these tools when you want to “do things the old-fashioned way.” Writing your own code gives you ultimate control over the look and feel of your website; however, if this is your first venture into web design and you aren’t familiar with the language, you might find the process somewhat complex and the learning curve a bit steep. (see Website Builder and CMS options, above).

5 Don't have time to do it yourself? - No problem! We got you covered! We can create a website for you by using either our Website Builder or Content Management System, such as WordPress or Joomla. Feel free to contact us for free, no obligation quote.
