You need two basic things to create your website – A domain name and a web hosting.
Domain name is the name of your website. For example, www.goole.com. People remember and recognize your site and your brand by this name. So a domain is a very basic and important element while creating a website.
A good domain name should be easy to spell, remember and short. Read these domain registration tips before get one.
Anyone can register a .com, .net, .org , .biz, .info, .name, .eu, .org.uk or .co.uk domain names. However, the most popular TLD is .com.
You need to pay around $10 – $15 yearly to register a domain name. Some of the companies allow you to create a free domain name. But it always looks unprofessional because they have their own brand name at the end (for example, yourdomain.blogspot.com ,yourdomain.wordpress.com).
Stay away from these kinds of domain, because people never take your site seriously, and once the company decided to stop their service or remove your site, you lost all your hard work.
A web host provides you the space to host all your files, images, and database. This is the place you will get your email accounts, databases and scripts to run your website.
Your website speed, web pages’ performance, sites availability, all depends on your hosting. So when you go for a hosting, choose the best one.
You need to pay around $4-$7 per month according to your hosting plan.
SiteCidal offers Economy Hosting from $2.82 /month and it is the best plan for you if you have a single website.
Like free domains, please avoid free hosting also. They show unwanted ads on your website and look unprofessional and have limited disk space and band with.
I think you got the basic understanding of domain and hosting, next is to start building your website. Let’s build a website that works!
