How to Host a website?

Host a website

Anyone can set up a website using a hosting service. This article will cover how to set up your webspace with the help of popular hosts such as Namecheap, GoDaddy, Bluehost, and Site Ground. It will also go through the process of choosing your domain name and a web hosting package that is right for you. 

Hosting is something that I am just getting into, but I wanted to write this tutorial since there are so many different options out there, and everyone has different needs when it comes to web hosting websites. 

The first step when setting up a website is to choose a hosting company. There are many hosting companies, and most of them have different prices, features, and packages. However, when selecting a hosting company, you want to look at the basic features you need for your websites, such as disk space, bandwidth, and domain name.  

You want to ensure that the company has all of the features you need and that the parts are within your budget. 

There are many hosting companies out there, but these three companies I have used these on different occasions and have had positive experiences with them: Namecheap, GoDaddy, Bluehost, and Site Ground. This article will be primarily geared toward these three web hosting companies since I have used them and know a lot about them. 

Namecheap is one of my favorite web hosts because they are cheap, reliable, and provide a lot of storage space for a reasonable price. Their shared hosting option gives you unlimited disk space and bandwidth, which you need, especially when running a website or blogging. 

GoDaddy is a little more expensive than NameCheap, but they are reliable and have good support staff. They also provide you with all the basic features you need to host your website. 

Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosting companies because of its features and easy-to-use control panel. Their packages start below $10/month, which is a lot cheaper than the other two companies I will recommend. Like GoDaddy, Bluehost provides you with all of the basic features you need to run a website or blog. 

SiteGround is another popular web hosting company with good prices and affordable packages for beginning websites or blogs. They provide you with all the basic features you need to host your website or blog. 

And then, after choosing a web host such as these three, I will go over what to do next. 

Get a name for your website, domain name, and hosting package: There are many different options for choosing a domain name and hosting package, but for this article, I will use NameCheap, GoDaddy, Bluehost, and SiteGround.  

A domain name is how people will look up your website to view it in the internet browser, so make sure you pick something you like. Also, when choosing a domain name, be sure to have it hosted on your hosting provider so that you can access it at any time.  

You will choose your hosting package based on how many websites of how much storage space you need. 

Choose your website hosting plan: Next, go to the control panel of your web host and click the “Start your free trial” button and sign up for a free account. Your website will create automatically (usually within 30 minutes). Then choose which hosting plan you want and fill out the required fields on your website, such as the e-mail address, credit card information, password, etc. This is what the control panel should look like when you first sign up: Once your website is set up you will have an account ID and password which you need to input back into your control panel for future access. 

The last step is to enter your IP address (a numerical code assigned to your computer), so you can access your page. Your new account should look like this once it has been set up: 

The last step is to verify the account by paying them before they will give you any access or features. Now go ahead and log in to the control panel to see what features are available such as e-mail, FTP (File Transfer Protocol), web tools, etc. 

You have created your hosting account, but the process is not over yet. The next thing you need to do is install a Content Management System (CMS) on your website so that you can add, edit and delete content. WordPress is the most popular CMS and can be easily installed on any hosting package.  

Now that your web hosting account has been set up with a domain, web space, and a CMS, all that’s left is to get traffic flowing in. Getting traffic to your website is only half the battle. The other half is ensuring visitors return to your website repeatedly, which is the hard part. You will have to do a lot of marketing, networking, and graphic design if you want your site to get a lot of views and visitors. However, I plan to focus on setting up a website’s basic features so you can get started on having your own website or blog. 

Now that you have set up your hosting account and domain name, the next step is creating content for your website. For example, if you want to make a blog, you will want to install the WordPress application on your website (if you haven’t already). Then you will start adding articles, blog posts, and images to attract visitors. 

The best way to get traffic flowing into your website is by ranking it in search engines because Google and other search engines prefer websites with high page ranks. To get your website ranked in Google, you need PageRank, a numerical value given to websites based on their popularity. High PageRank means that many people visit your website and vice versa. 

There are many ways to get your website into the top rankings, but using an article directory submission service is the easiest. Article Directory Submission services are websites that take your article and submit it to search engines on your behalf. These services come in handy because they do all of the hard work for you so that you can sit back, relax and collect traffic to your website. The only thing you will have to do after submitting your article waits until search engines pick up your paper and rank it accordingly.
