4 steps to creating an awesome website
These are the basic steps needed to start your website and answers some of the most common questions.
I can assist with all of these items, but this will give you an idea of the options and costs for your website.
Choose your website type & package
Do you need a basic one-page site for contact information, a larger site with menu pages, or an E-commerce business site? If you’re not sure where to begin, the small business website template with the Basic package is a good place to start. It can be customized with your colors, logo, information and pictures, and will get your site up and running quickly. You can always add more to it later. Or, I can help you select a theme to match your business needs. Download this checklist to see what to consider when starting your website.
Set up a website hosting account
A website hosting provider, such as WordPress, allocates space for your website on the web. There are several plans available depending on your needs, and you can always upgrade your plan later with no impact to your site. I suggest starting with a basic plan unless you need an e-commerce site or specialized design. WordPress hosting plans start at $48 per year, and an e-commerce or business plan with all extras is $300 per year.
Purchase your domain (website name)
A domain name is purchased through a domain registry site. If you already have your domain, I can transfer it to your new website. If you have not purchased one yet, I can add it to your hosting account. Most domains cost about $20 per year to renew.
