Steps To Setting Up A Website
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When setting up a website there are some things that you will need to have in order to make this happen. The very first step you need to take is to buy a domain name, also called a URL. You need to try and buy a domain that is relevant to what you want to promote. A good example of this if you wanted to build a site in dog training, then you will want to have the words dog training in your URL. Now sometimes this isn't possible so you may need to add dashes or add words to it like Dog Training Product Comparisons.

After you have decided on the name you want your site to be on then you will need somewhere to actually host your account. There are many hosting companies out there that different packages to suit your needs, it just depends on what you are looking for. Just don't fall under the huge misconception that in order to have a great web hosting company you will need to pay big bucks. This is not true and there are plenty of good ones to choose from.

Now when you have decided on your hosting company and purchased the package that best suits you, they are going to give you (DNS), also called a domain name server. It will look like this:

Primary: NS1 . HOSTGATOR . COM Secondary: NS2 . HOSTGATOR . COM

Now for you to be able to start setting up a website, you will need to point your domain name to your hosting account. Don't make this more complicated than it is. Just go into your account where you have your domain name. Depending on where you bought the name will depend on how you change your DNS. For example, in Godaddy, you would go to change nameservers and simply change the primary and the secondary to the address your hosting company gave you. This process could take a day, but most of the time it is immediate.

The next thing you will need to setup your website properly is a FTP (File Transfer Protocol) host account. Now some hosting companies have this included in their packages. A FTP is so that you can upload files into your site. I don't want to take the time to explain exactly how this works because all FTP accounts are different.

Personally, I have my own recommendations of whom and what I use in order to setup a website. I recommend that you take the time to research the various companies out there so that you can set up your site the right way. Now there are companies that will help create a website automatically, but that is up to you.
