There are a lot of aspects to making a website but it doesn’t have to be difficult and it definitely doesn’t have to be expensive. The type of site that you’d like to build will really dictate a lot about what you’ll need and the experience that you’ll need. Below I’ve listed some of the basic types of websites that may interest you. I’ve also included a link to a more in depth information that should clear up basic questions. Please keep in mind that all of the options below will still require you to register a domain name and choose a web hosting provider.
Make Money Online
This is probably the most popular reason that someone would start a website. This type of website is made up of quite a few options. You could have a product to sell, a service to sell or maybe you would like to start a website regarding a hobby that you have. You can make money on a hobby site by selling advertising once you have regular traffic to your website. You’ll find detailed information on our page regarding how to make money online.
A Family Website
Maybe you’d like to simply share photos or make a blog to keep family and friends informed about what’s been going on in your life. This is probably going to be your easiest option for setting up a website as it’s not going to require any sort of programming language or HTML knowledge. Setting up a family website will simply require you to setup an account that is dedicated to sharing photos and then you simply upload your files.
Another very popular reason to make a website is simply for informational purposes. Some common uses for this type of website would be a dentists office that wants to give some information regarding the types of procedures they do, office hours, & contact information.
An informational website is ideal for categories such as insurance agents, church websites, real estate agents, etc. A great option for an information site would be SiteToad.com’s Website Tonight. After signing up you simply choose between 100′s of templates and add your photos & text. There is no advanced HTML to learn and there is no software to install. Visit SiteToad.com to learn more.

Dental Website Design
This is a market that seems to be fairly untouched so starting a dental website is a great way to offer your hours, services as well as having a simple blog on good dental practices. I was searching for a local dentist recently and not one single dentist in my area showed up with a website. Even if you’re not a dentist, this could be a really strong market to offer website design.

Just For Fun Website
The final reason that I’ll discuss is making a website just for fun. This could be simply to learn the trade of website building or to simply start a website that’s related to a hobby that you enjoy.
A Final Word On Website Basics
As you can see there are quite a few reasons for making a website. Like I’d mentioned, the type of website that you intend on building will really dictate the experience level that will be required. I’ve put together this website as an informational site to help people make their own website. I encourage you to visit as much of the site as possible and coming back in the future by bookmarking our website.
I invite you to visit our webmaster forum, it’s a great place to discuss websites and ask questions to fellow webmasters regarding topics that you may still have questions on.
Part, or most, of the idea when you established a website was to sell products peripherally from a website of which you have a niche in. Like most other consumer business building on the internet, this is very easy to do, and not done more widely because most people only know how to surf the internet, and not much else. Here is how to build an online store on your site to generate income from your site.
Register your domain name
First, you have to get through the business of building a website. This is easy, and can be done on the cheap, if not free. You have to first get a domain name. This may not be as easy as you may think because a lot of good names are taken, your name has to promote the product you are trying to sell, and it should be unique.
Once you have done that you have to register the name. Godaddy.com registers name for $9.99 a year and is the one most people identify with because it is such a great website. After this, you have to get a host manager, which is a website that keeps your website open for business all day every day. The best one to use, at least right now, is hostgator.com. It’s free, which fits our criteria, and the most effective, probably on the web. You will register the domain name here. Read more…
