How To Create Your First Website & Get a Free Hosting

August 12th, 2009

Creating your first website can be a very experience to say the least. How many of us have thought to ourselves that we would love to have a website but we don’t know where to start? There are many guides on the internet that promise to show the beginner exactly how to start but often they are either too technical to understand or the guide leaves you feeling that there is an important piece missing from the instructions and the only way to get the last piece of the puzzle is to pay for it.

The main things you need to create a website are: A domain Name, A “squeeze page”, an autoresponder and the templates to use on your websites pages. The great thing is that there are many website templates of good quality graphics available at reasonable prices, but all you really need to know is that a one page website can be sufficient if you are only wanting to use a squeeze page to act as a doorway for your visitor to go through in order to either receive their free gift that you may be offering or to see whatever product you have for sale. You may not be selling anything at all and are offering useful information via a newsletter or blog, whatever it is that you do you need to have at least these vital instruments in place.

A domain name is the address that people will go to when they click on your adverts for whatever you’re promoting and there are many great and cheap companies out there who will provide you with a domain name, a squeeze page or landing page is the first place a visitor to your site goes to and fills in their name and email address in order to subscribe to your newsletter or free gift etc, an autoresponder is an automatic follow up device that you can have working on your behalf sending emails and other useful information to your subscribers in order to build a relationship with them and the website templates are the graphics that are used on the pages of the website.

Now to actually get your domain live on the web you need to have a company “host” your domain. There are thousands of companies out there that will do this for you and usually the average cost of this per month is $9. 99. However, you can get free hosting from a site that also shows you how to create your first website in much more detail than I have mentioned here and gives the newcomer everything you need in order to do this.
