Many people dream of building their own company and making a life for themselves. However, the need to launch your website and sell your services on the Internet comes with that.
Vanizya will guide you everything you need to know about starting your Startup Website with ease, including how to set up hosting for free and design a website in 5 minutes or less.
Step 1: Get A Domain for launch your website
The first step in building your website is getting a domain. This is simply the name used to identify your site on the Internet. You can get a domain from any domain provider. I suggest Namecheap, which gives you a free domain and hosting if you sign up with them.
Apart from this you can also find various popular domain from its Marketplace.
Step 2: Install Hosting for Free
For this article, I’ll be using the domain name for “http://www.example.net” that I just registered. The next step is to install a hosting service for free on your website. There are many different hosting companies out there, but I will be using BlueHost as it allows me to get a free domain and hosts my websites for $3/month with unlimited GB space, bandwidth, and email.
Step 3: Create A Website
After I had my domain, I created a hosting service for my website on BlueHost. To do this, go to BlueHost and create a website. Once you have done that – make sure that you go to BlueHost’s Control Panel and enable PHP (the language used to edit the backend of your website).
Step 4: Design a Photo for launch your website
Now that you have successfully launched your website, it’s time to design it. To make sure that your website looks great, you will want to get Adobe Photoshop.
Step 5: Designing Your Website
Now we will start editing the images of our website. The first thing we need is an image for the header of our site. I’m going to be using a picture of some mountains from Stocksnap.
You should see the picture of the mountains above. Now open up Adobe Photoshop, and import the image.
In Photoshop, we need to resize the image to fit our header. Use the crop tool and click on the middle of your image (as shown here).
In my image, I set the width to 650px and kept the height at 300px (as my header was 700px in total). Now click on save when you’re done editing it.
Once you have saved your image as a .png file, you must copy it to your website and replace the default image (large mountain).
Step 6: Setting Up My Website
Using BlueHost’s Control Panel, I clicked on the “My Sites” tab and put my domain name for “http://www.example.net.” Next, I created a new folder and renamed it “website.” Inside that folder, I placed the.
Next, I opened up BlueHost’s dashboard and found my website. My blog is on the other side of this screen (which has a button for adding a new blog post). To add a new image, I went to my blog’s homepage, clicked on the “+” sign, and clicked on an image.
To finish setting up my website, I had to replace the default “Your Website” with the one I just created.
Adding a blog post is pretty much the same process, except that you should see your blog post at the top of your website when you’re done.
Congratulations! You just built a website for yourself in 5 minutes or less.
Step 8: Designing Your Website Font
An essential part of building a website is making sure that everything looks sharp and clean. One thing that can make this hard is choosing your font to go with it. So I decided to go with Open Sans “Google fonts” .
Step 9: Setting Up Your Blog
Here I will be going over step 8 again, but this time I’ll explain how to create posts for your blog. First, go to your website and click on the “blogs” tab at the top of your website. Next, you want to click on “create a new blog.”
Step 10: Implementing WordPress
WordPress is free software you can use for blogging purposes. BlueHost allows you to have access to WordPress, so after setting up your website, click on the “WordPress” tab at the top of your website and follow the instructions.
Step 11: Create New Post
After implementing WordPress on my website, I went back to my website and clicked on the “new post” button at the top of my site.
