In the current digital world, technical skills have been simplified to a level that you can get anything you want without the need of much technical skill. One area that used to be hectic was web designing.
Currently websites can be built from nothing without the need of understanding any coding or programming language. Thanks to web hosting companies like host pinnacle that offers free site builders that can be installed by a click of a button.
Many people and businesses desires to own websites but because of limited knowledge and skills, they end up giving it a cold shoulder. A website is the best platform to reach thousands of clients daily and today I will show you how to set up a website without technical skills.
Before you can build you website you will need to have some details on what you want.
All You Need To have and Know before Creating a Website
Before you can create your website from the ground you will need to know and have the following
Get a Domain Name
With so many websites on the internet web , you need to come up with a name that identifies you or your business. This unique identify name is what is called your domain name. The domain name helps to direct online users to your website whenever they search for your website name. Create a unique domain name eg example.com and search for its availability.
If your desired name is available, ho a head and register it. This ensures that the name is preserved for you and no one will have the permission to register it again.
Look For A Hosting Companies
Once you have done a domain name search and confirmed its availability, you will need to get a company that will host your website. The good news is that, most web hosting company also offer domain name registration services.
Consider a company that offers the best services at an affordable price. Companies such as host pinnacle, Kenya web experts and Bitsimba are well known to offer high quality services at an affordable price.
What I like most about these companies is that they offer relatively large disk space and they also offer free SSL certificates ensuring your website and data is ever secure. To add on, your website will load faster thanks to their SSD powered disks.
They also come with multiple free services that would have otherwise cost you an arm and a leg.
Here is a list of some of the best web hosting companies you can consider.
I must say two of my websites are hosted by Kenya Web Experts and Host pinnacle and I cannot complain.
I am in the process of acquiring a third one and most likely I am considering to host it with Kenya web experts.
Having background knowledge on what is best in the market has been the guiding factor that helps me make wise choices that I have never regretted. I have seen many host their websites with foreign companies and their data is stored thousands of kilometers away, only to be disappointed with their services after signing up.
Currently majority of the local companies do offer great services, some even better than most foreign companies. What I love most about local web hosts is the ease by which one can make the payment. Simply by using Mpesa, you will be able to pay for your plan and build your website by a click of a button.
