Make Your Own Website

If you’ve just decided to make your own website – congratulations … and for what it’s worth, I think you made the right choice. If this is your first site, stand by to learn some fun stuff about the Internet, web hosting companies, domain names and services to get them – and much, much more. There may be a few things you’ll need to review a couple of times before it makes sense, and perhaps some concepts will be a bit frustrating in the beginning, but persevere. It’s worth it.

If you’re trying to build a website to advertise your business, you probably already know that millions of people search the Internet each and every day. The number searching for exactly what you have, want to promote, or desire to offer as a service will be a smaller subset of the total search volume out there, and there will likely be online competitors looking to attract visitors to their site instead of yours. But if we put our web pages together with original and to the point content, then follow solid search engine optimization (seo) principles, as well using proper internal link structures (and a few other things we’ll discuss along the way) … you just might be able to compete in your online market with remarkable results. I hope that’s what you’re looking for. We’ll get into more detail on the how to make your own website page and the make my own website blog posts as the site grows.

If you just want to put up a website to let friends and family have a quick place to get photos, last minute updates on current happenings or with family events, then you still made the right choice. In fact, that’s a much easier task than creating a website for business purposes since you won’t have to worry about internal linking, site structure (for the most part), optimization techniques, search engine ranking, or any of that technical stuff. All we need to do is show you how to make your own website free, or at least inexpensively for those that want to own your own domain name and host it on a web server yourself.

Regardless of why you want to build a website, there is no better time to get started than right now. And don’t let the site designers, graphics, hosting companies or others convince you that they have the better solution. Sure, it might be easier, but it will be costly, and not just in dollars. You will still have to provide them with most of the information you want on the site. So why not do it yourself to start with?

Yup … you really can make your own website, and we’re here to help you along the way. Enjoy the experience, get involved in the discussions and most of all – have fun learning how to build your first site.
