Step 1

Register a Domain Name [yourwebsiteaddress.com]

Choose your desired domain name that will be your own website address like you want websitetutorial.info. Note that, try to choose your product related name. For example: You wish to sell some product like Lucy olive oil, so then you just try to get a website as near as possible lucyoliveoil.com lucyoil.com lucyolivepureoil.com or .net or .biz something like that. Your website address (domain name) is most important for being the success in online. Most of visitor like small and easy rememberable name. So, try to keep your address as small as possible, also choose an easy/common name as much near as possible.

They have world’s no. 1 customer service network to helps customers. Another one is GoDaddy.com. This also top classes domain and hosting provider. Namesilo.com is latest top popular domain registrant.  I will discuss details about web hosting in my next tutorial. Now my aim to explain something about domain registration. You can choose one of them to register your domain name for starting your new website. After your registration, you are now finished to start a website building.

Step 2

Buy a Hosting Server/Online Data Storage

This is second step to be ahead into your first website. You can see lots of hosting provider in the net, but everyone is not reliable, secure, user friendly, customer friendly; also the big issue is uptime! Uptime is the most important matter of hosting server. Many hosting providers say they have good server or data center, but most are falsehood! This is strange news but, it’s true! Yes, some server has really good service as world-class. Some are really bad. You need to take a good plan for your website to secure your information and data. Please see their official website for ensuring of their latest offer. For visit Namesilo.com please click here Namecheap.com, please click here and for GoDaddy.com, please click here

As you read above, I told you about Namesilo.com  Namecheap.com and GoDaddy.com you can choose one of that two for reliable and exceptional hosting price. Both of that hosting has many features that help your website to be safe and good.

Warnings! Some website can propose you to use free web hosting. You never use this type of service, because, your website is your asset. I hope you don’t want to lose your website content when your website/blog is proper established. Remember that, free is not good at all! Free web hosting is spoken many features, but maximum features are absent there. Also, this type of server can be discontinued without prior notice even you are unknown! Some free web-hosting provider asks huge amount money for upgrade account after website became popular. I strictly recommend you to buy a reliable web-hosting to avoid any bad experience with you.
