Well, this is just a beginners’ tutorial as I’m now only going to explain the steps to create a site just briefly, so as to give you an initial idea about the same. So, let’s get started and let me explain you the 3 simple steps you are needed to perform to start off a website of your own :
(1) Register a domain : The first and the foremost thing you are needed to do in order to make a website is to grab up a domain name. You just need to register a domain for your site through any registrars such as Godaddy, Namecheap etc. A domain does have a name and an extension as its suffix, for example – google.com, facebook.com etc. It usually costs around $10 for a domain name with 1 year of duration.
(2) Buy a web hosting plan : The next step is to purchase a hosting plan for your website, which will later be used for storing the files of your site, and then serve them to your visitors. There are different kinds of hosting plans which comes up with different total storage size and bandwidth. Since you are a beginner, I will recommend you to go for a baby plan which will cost you just around $10-$15 per month.

You can use your coding knowledge to create up web pages for your website manually, or you can also use content management systems such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla etc. to get that work done for you automatically & instantly. For a beginner or newbie, I will always suggest to go for WordPress or WP, as it use quite user friendly, and does have an easy administrative dashboard from where you can control your website with ease.
That’s all you have now successfully built up your website, all you need to do now is to put contents in it on the basis of what type of site you want to create.
