Having a website is almost essential for entrepreneurs to students. A website reflects your skills, works, projects and even personality. Nowadays creating a website is a 15-minutes-task and most of the time you can start your website for free. With wonderful website builders anyone can create an attractive and effective website easily.

From personal portfolio to blog of genius articles, with this simple guide you can create your website all by yourself. So, let's start the journey to create your first website for free.

Step #01: Choose A Platform

First of all you need to choose a platform to build your website. A website building platform is actually combination of a Web hosting and a CMS (content management system). However you can choose a web hosting and a CMS differently but we recommend you to stick with a single platform as it's simple to understand for beginners. And also free web hosting services are not very much reliable.



WordPress

You probably heard about WordPress, world's one of the most popular and powerful CMS and website building platform. WordPress is very easy to understand and takes a few minutes to start. As a beginner you can choose WordPress for your first website. It gives both paid and free services. Free service is very limited but makes the job done. However paid service, according to paying rate, unlocks a lot of potentials.

WordPress.com offers a platform/website builder, however you can have the CMS as a php script from WordPress.Org to use in your separate hosting. To simplify things we will stick with WordPress.com.

To start your website on WordPress go to WordPress.com and click on Start your website.

Blogger

Google offers an amazing service calls Blogger. It's a blogging platform but capable of making any kind of website such as e-commerce site or portfolio. It's completely free so you don't have to pay a penny. To start your website with Blogger go to Blogspot.com and hit CREATE YOUR BLOG. Don't worry it can be more than just a blog.

Other Services

WordPress or Blogger, any of them is a smart beginning but if you want to try something different here is some other popular free website building platform:-


Step #02: Pick A Domain

A domain is the address of your website. For example ProSeoTech.xyz is the domain of our website.




You will have a sub-domain as soon as you register your website in any of those platforms above. A sub-domain is a domain that is part of another domain. In our case you sub-domain will be part of your platforms domain. For example if you have chosen Blogger as a platform then sub-domain may look like http://Something.blogspot.com. You can stay with your sub-domain and access your website with it or get a person domain from a third party domain registrar.

Domains like .com, .net, xyz etc. are not free and you have to pay a fair amount of price in order to have one. But remember, we are talking about FREE here. Freenom.com is a great option for having a free domain. You can register a domain with some specific extensions like .tk, .ml, .ga etc for free from there. However you can not have domains like .com or .net but Freenom.com is perfect for beginners.

Go to www.freenom.com, enter your desired domain name and hit Check Availability. If your desired domain name is already taken don't worry, try something new and more unique. You can Google about how to find a unique domain name. After picking up a domain name you need to register it there that will take a few seconds.

When registration is completed you can park your domain in your website building platform. The process varies from platform to platform. It's a little bit difficult task, but don't be frustrated. Check help section of your hosting service or search on YouTube to know about parking a domain in the platform.

Step #03: Design Your Website

Designing is one of the most important things to do after creating a website. To design a website it's essential to have knowledge about HTML, CSS and JavaScript. But if you don't know anything about those, you can pick a readymade free theme/template to design your site instantly.

We all know beggars can't be choosers. But there are a lot of free theme available on WordPress and Blogger to choose from. You can pick one according to your test.

To design your website go to Themes section of your platform.

Step #04: Add Contents In Your Website

After designing your website you are ready to use it. Adding contents is your next assignment.

In WordPress and Blogger posts are the contents. You can also add pages in the site. You can create a new post or page from menu section.

It's a good to have knowledge about HTML to make contents but not essential. If you don't know anything about HTML just pick visual editor instead of HTML editor. You can add links, images, videos etc. to create more effective web content.

Step #05: Optimize Your Site For Search Engines

Search engine optimization or SEO means improving your web contents to gain traffic from search engines. It's an essential part for creating website as most of the traffic comes from search engines. There are two types of SEO required for a website: on-page SEO and off-page SEO.
