Getting a Website:
Here are some guidelines to follow when you plan on getting a website.
Choose type of Website:
Getting a personal website or a website for a business must be a simple process. We want to explain here what the process is for getting your website on the web.
To start the process, decide on the following:
What do you want to do? What do you want to show or tell the visitors to your website? Once you know the answer to this question, it will be easy to determine the size and type of website that you will need.
Lets say you simply want to tell people what you do, where you are and how they can contact you, it would require a simple website with one page or at most a few pages, each containing some text, contact form and maybe an image or two, nothing complicated. The content is not going to change much, so a simple one page website will do.
Should you have many different services, tons of images, products and changing information you want to show the visitors, it would require something much more complex and also something that is easy to update and change regularly. CMS or Content Management System.
Domain Name: After you have determined what you want your website to do and what type of site you are going to run, it is important to find the correct domain name, which looks like this https://www.yourdomain.co.za

Hosting: Once you have found your domain name, it need to be registered in your name and in order for someone to find it on the internet it is necessary to have the domain name in a hosting account, which is basically a computer storage space where people can read and see what is on the website by entering the domain name into any browser. NB: The web-hosting or server is much like the space that you rent to have your business in. It’s merely the space itself. It does not include furnishings like counters and shelves for your products, just as the web-hosting account doesn’t include a site for you to show your info or sell your products.
