This article briefly explains how to create a website.
The very first step when creating a website is buying a domain. The domain is the name of the site: www.sitename.com. There are plenty of places which sell domains, and at different prices. Often hosting providers sell domains too.
As the name suggest, the hosting provider is the company which offers to host a website on its servers. Of course, anyone can run its own server, even you! However, considering the huge amount of work it takes to run a server, paying a dozen euros a year for someone else to host your own site, is after all not a bad idea.
How did I do With My Own Site
WordPress is a very popular platform for web pages. Its main advantages are:
- No coding skills required.
- Thousands of templates are available on-line, most of which are free.
- Very user-friendly interface.
- Lots of plug-ins to tune the site the way you want.
- A large community offering support.
- Last but not least, WordPress does not cost anything, it is completely free.
Why This Blog
It is my very first blog and I am still learning how to use these platforms. I am committed to dedicate some time daily to this blog and make it look always better. The choice of a theme might change during the first period until I am able to find something which I really like.
I named the website after me because it is my personal blog, and I want to make it look like me as much as possible. I am very excited about creating something completely different and new. I strongly believe that this is just the beginning of a completely new adventure and I want to make the most out of it.
Marketing is my passion and even though there are plenty of marketing blogs out there, I still want to have my own, which will be done in my way. I have worked as SEO copywriter, and during this experience I discovered the joy of blogging and writing contents for the Internet. What fascinates me the most about Internet is its power to connect people from all around the world in an unique way, instantly.
Marketing is part of my educational background, and it is what I believe will be part of my future working career. Internet offer an extraordinary tool for marketers, it allows to measure in an extremely precise way any sort of interactions from users. In addition to this, every single day, new tools are introduced to make marketers lives easier.
At the other end of web marketing are users, people like you and me who use the world-wide-web to fulfill their basic needs. Internet is the greatest source of information ever created and it has already affected our daily life radically, but guess what? The best has yet to come.
