How to make a website
Okay, here’s the plan for what we’re going to do in the next steps. The important thing to note is that it’s all DIY-able (if that’s a word) and that we’re minimising the costs for you wherever possible.
In short, what you’ll end up with at the end of this guide is a website you’ve created yourself that won’t put you into debt. Here’s what we’ll go through:
- Decide on a Domain name, if you haven’t already, it should be as close to or similar to our own business name. Think of one as short as possible and easy to type - if you are only using Australia as your base, then .com.au is the way to go. Miniwebs can acquire a domain name for you (registered in your name) - no need to worry about how to do that.
- You DO need website hosting - at Miniwebs we can set that up for you so you don’t need to worry about the technicalities.
- Build your site with WordPress (known as a Content Management System). It is considered one of the easier platforms for ‘non-developers’ to build a website with whilst allowing full flexibility in what you can add on for no extra (or little) cost. Many of the online platforms whilst easy to build with often cost a base amount per month (in USD) but add bits on and the cost goes up every time.
