Website Starter Guide

The Starter Guide for getting a website up and running.

Step One:

Determine the type of website that would be best for your business with The Best Website Types for Entrepreneurs.

Step Two:

Once you've figured out the type of website you want, you'll need to decide who will host it for you.

Future content will cover this topic extensively but for now, check out this overview of the different options available to you as well as this article on The Best Web Hosts 2021 for a more DIY approach.

Usually, most hosting plans will include a free domain, so you may want to wait until you select a host before buying your domain outright.

Step Three:

Build or design your site.

The type of site you've chosen, as well as who is hosting your website and the services they offer, will dictate how you build your website.

In general, your options are to use your host's builder (the easiest option), an all-in-one solution like Kajabi (a little bit more involved), a content management system like WordPress (much more involved), or a website template (very hands-on).

Step Four:

Publish or deploy your site.
