In order to answer their questions, we thought of explaining the whole process here.
It generally consists of 3 steps.
- Get a domain
- Get webspace
- Design the website
Now, we shall try to explain each of the above mentioned steps.
Get a domain:-
A domain is the name of your website that you are planning for your business. Choosing a domain name is in your hands depending upon your business. It could be your business name or the name of your brand. A typical domain name looks like yourbusiness.com where yourbusiness could be the name of your business and .com is called the extension. There are various options available to have different extension like .com, .in, .org, .net, .co.in, etc. Each extension has different purpose. Selecting the particular extension will depend on what type of business you do.
There are authorities from where you can buy the domain name online. Godaddy, Bigrock and hostgator are few authority sites from where you can purchase the domain.
There are certain important factors which need to be considered before buying the domain which have direct and indirect impact on your business reputation and your investment in the short and long term both.

After you have purchased the domain, next thing your need is webspace. Webspace is the space allocated on a computer (called a server) where the contents and data of your website will be placed so that people can see your website from anywhere. Webspace is also called hosting.
Choosing the right hosting is very important as it affects the performance of your website. There are few things which need to be considered before buying hosting like how much space is required by your website, the speed of server, price, support available after purchase, etc. The prices of hosting vary very much which all depends on the quality of their service and various other factors. There are many options available to buy hosting online like Godaddy, Bigrock, hostgator, siteground, bluehost, hosting24, etc.
Purchasing the hosting requires some technical knowledge to select the right option which totally depends upon your website requirement.
