A Warning about Free Websites

You might occasionally encounter someone offering you a free website. Basically these enable you to sign
up, and start building your website for free.


But... a word of caution!
There are things they might not tell you when they're trying to sell you a free website. While a few
companies will be completely upfront about these extra costs, others will fail to mention them ...until you've
signed up:


       Your "free" website does not have it's own domain name (i.e. www.yourname.com). If you want
        your own domain name, you'll have to pay for it. And you will probably pay more than you should.
       Your "free" website may have ads displayed all over it. This enables the company (not you), to earn
        money from your website. To remove the ads, you will usually have to pay money for a premium
        package.
       Most of the really good features are actually part of a "premium" package - which you have to pay
        for.


Of course, it's entirely up to you which way you go. But there is one thing I will always recommend: Get
your own domain name - now!


Registering your own domain name is the best piece of advice I can give. Without this, your website does
not have it's own "web address". This might not sound like much now, but later, once you've built up a
fantastic website with loads of content, you will see what I mean. Without your own domain name, your
"web address" is not actually yours, it's the company who provides your "free" website. If they decide to
change something, you could lose all your hard work. Imagine losing months, or even years, of hard work,
just because you chose not to register a domain name!


So, if you're shopping around, check for those three things before you sign up with anyone.


The Website Creation Process

Now if you choose not to use a website builder, you are probably curious to know what is involved in making
a website. Here I explain the three main steps of creating a website.


Creating a website basically involves the following 3 steps:

for $1.99 (below).        Below, I'll show you
                          excellent hosting plans
                          starting from around $5
                          or $6 per month.
A more detailed explanation of these 3 steps follows.


STEP 1: REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME

Before you even think about building your website, you should register a
domain name. A domain name is the thing that looks like this:
"yourdomain.com".


Your domain name represents the URL (or permanent web address) of your website. Therefore, when
anyone types in "yourdomain.com" or "www.yourdomain.com", they will see your website.


You register your domain name through a domain name registrar or hosting provider. You simply check that
your preferred domain name is available, then register it (online).


Domain names are registered on an annual basis, and you can usually register it many years in advance (or
set 'auto-renew').


Prices can range from between $10 to $15 up to as much as $35 or even $45 (this is for the same
product!). ZappyHost has some of the best prices on the web - and if you purchase hosting at the same
time, the domain name is even cheaper ($1.99 at time of writing).


If you don't have a domain name yet, get your domain name now (before someone else beats you to it!)


STEP 2: GET A WEB HOST

A web host (or hosting provider), is a company that makes your website
available for the world to see. They have the equipment and technical
skills to make sure your website is available to the world, 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week.


Choose your hosting provider carefully - a good host will have excellent support. A bad host can have almost
no support at all! If you're new to creating websites, good support can reduce the stress that comes from
doing something for the first time.


Also, some web hosts have an online website builder. A good website builder can enable anyone to make a
website - even complete novices.


If you like the idea of using an online website builder, check out the website builder below. This enables you
to build a website virtually within minutes, and hosting is included (as well as plenty of other extras).


If you don't need a website builder (i.e. you prefer to build your website by yourself), you can find
somegreat hosting plans here. Once you've built your website, simply upload it via FTP.

STEP 3: BUILD YOUR WEBSITE

This part can be as easy or as hard as you like it to be!


The easy way? The easiest way to build a website is to use your web
host's website builder (assuming they have one). As mentioned,
ZappyHost provides Website Tonight which makes it extremely easy for
you to make your website.


The hard way? OK, if you think a website builder sounds too much like
cheating, you probably want to learn how to build a website the way the pros do it - by
coding/programming. If this sounds like you, then see this introduction to making your own website. Also
check out the Quackit homepage for links to thousands of pages of tutorials and other web building
resources.

builder.
