Five easy steps to create a website


Due to many reasons in which an individual might want to build a website, for instance they might be starting a personal page where they can record the events of their life as well as their family. In addition to that there are some who enjoy starting hobby sites, or even their own small social networking sites. Then again, starting a website as a business is a different matter altogether. Either way, you need to find a good way to have your website hosted, and you will need to know just what to avoid when you are looking into your various software or building options.

  • What to Look For, There are a few things in your mind when you are learning how to build website.
  • Ease of Use, If you do not know complex HTML or CSS and do not want to learn it, then you will need to make sure you find a piece of web design software that will do the hard work for you.
  • Plugin Support, Websites are far more than simple HTML these days. If you want to attract users or customers, you need to make use of Flash, CSS, or even Java plugins. Either way, you should make sure your design program actually supports those protocols.
  • Preview, There are two ways to preview your website, one of which is by opening it in a web browser. Some of the higher end web design tools will allow you to preview the site directly in the design program which tends to save some time.
  • Upload Options, This is not something that you will typically see in a basic, free website editor. There are some exceptions to the rule, and having upload options in your editor will save you quite a bit of trouble.

Free vs. Paid

One the most important decisions you will make when learning how to build a website is whether to go with free web design software or the higher end paid software. Once you know the web design process you will more than likely be able to work with anything, though when you are more educated your tolerance level will become lower and lower. That said, it might be a good idea to look into the higher end packages such as Macromedia Dreamweaver and even Microsoft Frontpage if you so desire.

Conclusion

‘At the last but not least’ learning how to build a website will be very important, and the faster you learn, the better off you will be. After all, both the business and personal worlds are quickly moving toward the cyber world, which means you will need to move as well. That said, the time to learn how to build a website is now; there has never been a better time!
