This blog site will address everything you wanted to know about building a website – from selecting a domain name to making your web site live.
To start with, here are a few pointers that can help you build a website that you can be proud of.
- The first step in building a website is selecting a good domain name and registering it. You can either select your own domain name or seek help from a domain registrar.
- Select a reliable web host that can provide you with a web-hosting plan that best suits your technical needs. A reliable web host should also give you consistent customer support.
- Draw up a site plan on how you want your website to appear and what it should contain. Jot down all your requirements to build a logical work flow that also ensures easy navigation between your web pages.
- Design your website using tools like Photoshop, ImageReady, Dreamweaver etc. A good design takes into account font, typography, use of colors, graphics, images and web navigation.

- If you want visitors to flock to your website you must provide unique content that is informative, newsworthy and/or humorous. The content should also be well edited and free of typos.
- Once development is complete, your web pages should go through a comprehensive testing process. Ensure cross-browser compatibility and that all pages are loaded and linked properly.
