Steps to Designing a Website

Here’s all that you need to know about designing a website summarized in three steps:

Choose the best platform: The three most popular website building platforms are WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. More than half of the websites on the web are built on WordPress. The best thing about WordPress is that it is totally free of cost and you have a plethora of layouts to choose from. Another thing that makes it extremely popular is the ease of use. You can create anything right from ecommerce websites to blogs and there are several plugins to handle almost all the sites. Moreover, it is mobile compatible and has a large support community. Joomla and Drupal are great too, but require little bit of technical know-how and is therefore mostly used by expert web developers and coders.

Choose a domain name and web hosting: For a website to go online you have to choose a domain name and a web hosting for your site. This is professional, affordable and helps your site to load faster. When you are choosing a domain name make sure it matches with your company name. The name should represent your brand and should be short, catchy and easy to remember.

Set up your site: Now you need to install WordPress to your domain. Most of the hosting companies have one-click installation for WordPress. Once you have done this you need to choose a theme for your website to avoid looking like everyone else. This will be followed by creating new pages and adding content, changing titles and taglines, setting up a static homepage, editing sidebars, enabling/disabling comments for pages and posts etc.

Installing plugins: Plugins are extensions that enable you to add features to your site that do not come inbuilt with WordPress. You can choose from more than 25,000 free plugins for almost everything right from creating image galleries to adding form submissions. All you have to do is click on Plugins.
