First lets discuss how to build easy websites. In this category if you do a quick search online youll see you have many resources. But its important to know that some of the best resources in building a good webpage are the ones that are free. But Ill start with whats not free. In case you havent done so, you need to purchase your domain name. That is where you start.
Your domain name is your real estate place holder on the World Wide Web. Again this service is fairly inexpensive. Its roughly 5-10$ per month or you can pay for the service for the year for a reduced cost.
What is good is that most hosting services allow multiple domains to be hosted on one account. So after you build your first website, then later if you decide to build another you wont have to pay additional host fees for your 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 100th website your create. And trust me, after you learn to build your first website you will want to build another because instantly you will think of other products or services you can provide to the public that can make you money.
On to building your website, many web hosts offer free tools to build your website from purchasing their hosting service. Sometimes these tools are adequate, other times they are not. This all depends upon your needs. For example when marketing your website its important to know how people are accessing your site. Google provides a free tracking tool that allows you to see how many visitors are accessing your site, from where they are accessing your site, how long they are visiting your site, and more, much more! In designing and refining your website to produce most traffic possible, this tool is exponentially important. Then they shoot everything over your head.
Also, generally most authors center their course around developing websites with expensive web development software like Dreamweaver whose price range is typically outside of the average person who is looking to build their first website.
Here are the facts, you can build your own professional website using powerful but free website development software, then have the ability to further customize the website to bring tons of traffic to your site daily without you learning a whole new language.
