If the only technical expertise is stopping you, read on and learn just how easy it is to launch your own website, even if you’re a complete beginner. We can help you through every step of the process.
1. Domain Name - your domain name is the unique string of letters (and sometimes numbers) that both identifies your site and serves as your “address.” Choose a descriptive yet simple domain name so visitors can find your website easily. Use the domain names search tool at SKGOLD® Hosting to learn if your domain name is available.
Every domain name ends with an extension, and you’re already familiar with the most common and popular ones, including .COM, .CA, .NET, and .ORG. The list also includes a newcomer domains such as .WEBSITE, .ONLINE, .COMPANY and more.... If the name you like isn’t available as a .COM or .CA, consider registering a domain name with a .website, .site, .online, .company, .club, .expert, .guru, or .center extension, instead.
2. Web Hosting - your website needs a home, and that’s exactly what a web hosting plan provides. Before you select a web hosting plan, you need to consider the purpose behind your website. You may want a full array of bells and whistles for your eCommerce site, while a personal or informational site will perform beautifully with a more modest platform.
SKGOLD® Hosting offers three different web hosting options, and you’ll find exactly what you need in our Baby, Basic and Unlimited plans. They all include email accounts, security features, ample storage, and access to site statistics. If you’re just getting started, we recommend you start with a Baby web hosting package – it’s affordable, flexible and you can upgrade to the highest plan at any time without interruptions.
3. Design and Code - some advance planning can help to ensure that your website will look and work the way you want it to. Lay out your design on paper or make a mock-up on your computer; choose photos and graphics that appeal to your sense of style. Then get set up and put your vision out there for everyone to share.
