Hello, Mark Ford here, and today’s topic is how to set up your own website. To succeed online you need to have a credible and professional online presence. Therefore you need to have your own website.

Don’t break into a cold sweat with the thoughts of having to be a technical genius or anything like that. In today’s post I will show the basics that you need to know on how to set up your own website with these four great tips.

Technology today has made it easy to create your own website, but you still need to know the basic fundamentals to having a successful website. So if you follow the tips that I am going to share with you, then you will not be going too far wrong.

How to Set Up Your Own Website In Four Simple Steps

Web Hosting – You need somewhere that your website will sit on the internet. This is called website hosting. Now there are many web hosting companies out there. They all do the same thing.

Your website is made up of different files such as web pages, posts, images, audio and videos to mention just a few.

These files need to be housed somewhere so that people can access them, this is where hosting companies come into play.

There are many hosting companies that you can choose. They have many different packages but I would suggest that you start off with, what is called a shared server package. This is where your files are stored with other peoples on large servers where people can access them online.

When your business has grown then I would suggest that your get your own dedicated server where you have total control of what goes on within the make up of your site. This is what I have done with my company, Nice Money

Domain Names – Your need to have a domain name for your business. This is the actual virtual address of your company on the internet.

It is often described as a URL. This stands for Uniform Resource Indicator to be totally specific, but it is where people can access your content.

My tip is to make it as short and simple as you can, always get the dot com extension if you can, and make it specific to your name or the type of business or niche that you are in.

There are many great domain name providers and you can usually get a great domain name for under $10 for the year.

Design – This is where you can get creative and let you imagine run wild. What I would suggest is to make it as simple as you can.

In the online world today people are looking for clean and easy to navigate sites. If you make it too complicated for people to find what they are looking for, then they will click away and go to your competitors.

A great platform to use is WordPress. You can install this with most hosting companies and WordPress has hundreds of professional looking templates. So, you should find something that matches the look and feel to your brand and company.

Search Engine Optimization – This is often referred to as SEO. This is where the search engines pick up on the content that you post onto your site.

Here you need to fill your content with relevant keywords relating to the topic that you are talking about. You should be doing keyword research to see what people are searching for.

Once you have done this, then create blog posts, articles, videos and audios and make sure that have in demand and popular keywords in the titles, subtitles and content body. This will ensure that search engine like Google, Bing and Yahoo will notice your content and then list it within there search results.

These are the basic steps you need to know on how to setup your own website.

Thought for the day!

Leaders visualize their goals, so just set goals and achieve them and stop making excuses not to. Limiting beliefs are only what you tell yourself to believe, change that mind set and just believe in achieving your goal.
