How to Build Your Own Website - More Steps

Advertisement
To build a website, there are four methods to choose from:

FIRST METHOD:

Get a professional designer to build the site for you:

It is expensive in creation process, site maintenance and development.

SECOND METHOD:

Designing the site with free website hosting:

In this case, just sign in the website that offers this service, and start building your own website.

Free Hosting Sites:

http://geocities.yahoo.com/
http://www.angelfire.lycos.com/
http://www.tripod.lycos.com/

Disadvantages of this method (Free Web Hosting):

Small size-Limited web page space
Can't create interactive features (message boards, online ordering, etc.)
Advertisements-May have banners and/or pop ads on your homepage
Long and hard to remember web address (instead of yourdomain.com)
No branded email addresses (you@yourdomain.com)
Weak technical support-Poor help and support options
May not be free forever
No seriousness to the site

So it is better to choose a cheap Hosting sites with reasonable prices, you will get a better quality and a higher credibility.

THIRD METHOD:

Professional Web Hosting:

Design the site by a web page designer program (computer software) and use one of the hosting sites.

Web Page designer programs:
There is a lot of computer software available to help you build and manage your website, you may use one or more of them:

1. Microsoft FrontPage
2. Macromedia Dreamweaver/Fireworks Studio
3. Adobe GoLive/Adobe ImageStyler
4. Flash & Swish

FrontPage program is the famous and most important one.

Because this method needs to learn a new program with the knowledge of HTML, so it is not our recommended method.
