How to start your own website

Find out how to create your own website in three different ways here, with price tags from free to paid. Are you a marketer or a hobbyist? Match the right option to your own unique needs by following the tips given below.

Get a hosting account

Using the website builder With your hosting account, you get a free website builder. Now, you can build your site easily. Otherwise, a good hoster should provide you with plenty of professional video tutorials, not to mention an active forum, a live chat system and other forms of support. Why pay for hosting? By subscribing to a hosting account, you are in control of your website. When you pay a monthly fee, you don't have to worry about your site being disabled by the free online service you are using. This however, is not common unless you are questionable in your business practices. Even so, if you are reported as a spammer for instance, a paid hoster can do the same thing. Occasionally, it can happen to marketers who don't deserve it. In this case, you may want to find a hoster that understands internet marketing.

Use an online site service provider

Setting up a website Create your own business website is as easily as dragging and dropping the elements you want into your own web-page. Add as many web-pages as you want. Go to Weebly.com or Webs.com to get a free account. You can optionally upgrade later. You can also go to to Wix.com if you want to make your own Flash website. Now, you can build your own websites with hosting included quickly and easily. Setting up a blog Go to Blogger.com or Wordpress.com to get a free blogging account. You need to sign in to your Google account first before you can start a Blogger blog. If you need a lot of customisation, go straight to Blogger. Design your own website in your way.
