It’s Too Difficult!
Starting a website is not easy. Most people have to do a significant amount of reading before they even understand how to start the process. After doing some reading on getting a website, you’ll quickly find out that you need a domain and hosting as the first step. You can often get these two tings from the same company but often times, domain and hosting are purchased separately. So the first step is linking up your domain name (www.yourdomain.com) with your hosting provide. This can be too technical for some but with the help of your domain registrar and hosting company, you can probably figure it out.
After that, you need get a website design. There are many ways to do this. You can design it yourself if you have the appropriate knowledge and software. If you do not have the technical knowledge to do it yourself, you will have to hire a website designer or use a website builder. While hiring a designer usually yields the most professional results, it is usually the most expensive option. Using a website builder is a much cheaper option but requires you to utilize pre-designed website templates. Website builders can be difficult to use and often create websites that do not look very professional. And even worse – website builders often create websites that are not highly optimized for search engines which means you won’t get indexed and ranked by the major search engines.
