Starting a website is not an easy task, especially when one is not very familiar with web development, coding or design. Thankfully today we have a multitude of various options to when it comes to creating a website.
Website builders like Wix, Go Daddy Web builder, WordPress CMS allow for easier access to web development technology.

There are however hicks to choosing either platform.
Let’s start by addressing the idea of a website, and how it all works.

Think of a website like a building a house.

HOW TO BUILD A WEBSITE?

  • Address — then — you determine the size of your family and measure the space needed to build one
  • After you get the layout, the number of rooms etc.
  • You build the site and decide on the color and functionality of it. Once everything is ready you and your family can move in.

  • Address of your website is called a DOMAIN = www.domain.com
  • The land where you build the house is HOSTING SERVER = 1&1, AWS, GoDaddy, Google Cloud, etc
  • The size of your website would determine the time of the server that you need to get.Larger e-commerce websites with thousands of products and millions of users would need either a dedicated server or a number of them.
    In other words, this server would only contain the information on your website.
