How to start a website
Step 1: Domain Name
The first thing you need in order to start a website is a domain name. A domain name will be the URL of your website. For example, the domain name of this website is atomicpages.net. AtomicPages will allow you to add in a domain name with the purchase of your hosting account for only $11-$15 per year if you don't already have one.
Step 2: Hosting
Next you need a hosting account. A hosting account is a place on a remote server somewhere. This server will send out your website to a computer whenever someone visits it. AtomicPages offers affordable hosting plans on our Hosting Plans page. Our Standard plan will be suitable for most websites.
Step 3: Create Your Website
Once you have hosting and a domain name, you just need a website to put there. You have two options here:
- Create a website by yourself. If you already know about web design this should be easy for you.
- AtomicPages will setup a website for you at an extremely affordable price. Our prices are a small fraction of what other web design firms may charge. See the Services page for details.
Step 4: Keep your Website Updated
Once you have your website up and running you need to keep it updated. You once again have two options:
- Keep your website updated by yourself. You may need a little knowledge about web design in order to do this.
- AtomicPages will manage your website for you at an affordable price. See the Services page for details.
