Choose a Platform
Designing websites while traveling should be easy. As such, using HTML, CSS, and/or Flash could prove challenging especially if you have no design/code skills. If you are a beginner in building websites, then you might wanna consider using a content management systems (CMS) such as WordPress. As a web designer I'd highly recommend using WordPress because of the following reasons:
1. Totally free – it comes with amazing layouts and themes.
2. Easy to use – the templates are easy to tweak and make changes. Suitable for beginners.
3. Great for handling small and bulky websites.
4. WordPress is responsive – it works great on smartphones, tablets, basically any screen size without affecting the website user interface.
5. WordPress has a support forum which is useful for helping builders with free resources.
Choose a Domain Name
In order to have a functional website online, you need a domain name as well as a hosting service. A domain name is what your website will be called, for example, qwerty.com, companyname.com. A hosting server is what enables people and you, to connect to the website.
WordPress is a free platform, however, hosting charges will set you back around $3-$5 dollars per month. Owning a company website is important because it is cheap, convenient and highly accessible – hosting in servers such as (businessname.cheaphostingservices.com) would slow your website.
As a web designer, I can suggest hosting services such as InMotion.com, godaddy.com. and iPage.com. One more thing, in order to look professional, go for a .com domain extension like companyname.com. Other recommended options include .net and .org domain extensions.
This step involves installing WordPress in your newly acquired website. This is simple.
Step 1: Log into your web hosting account.
Step 2: Click the Control Panel option.
Step 3: Search for the “WordPress” icon.
Step 4: Proceed to install “WordPress” on your website. You can now access your new WordPress website.
