How to create your own website?

In the current age, there are many ways to create your own website for free. And most of them are web-based and basically using like a blog, since that is the most easy way for people do not have any programming background. So what you need to do is to create your site or blog in one of the website. Then register your domain. At the end is simply link this two together. In this post, I am going to show the steps how to achieve these by some popular blog hosting websites such as WordPress, Google blogger, Google site, squarespace and Typepad. But the last two is not free, they only purvey a trial version for about 14 days.

  1. The first one I want to talk about is the one I am using – WordPress. It provides free blog hosting service. What you need to do is to sign up an account. Then you will have a xxx.wordpress.com for your blog. If you want to have your own domain, WordPress provides $5 USD for registration your domain name and 10 dollar for mapping it together then done! They also provides custom CSS and other features, but that would cost you extra dollars.
  2. Google site and Google blogger is similar to WordPress. They are totally free, albeit they would not provide as much features as WordPress do and has more ads.
  3. TypePad and Spacesquare provides more custom UI(User Interface) design, you can drag and drop items to custom your blog/site’s layout. Meanwhile, they purvey a trial version and would likely charge more.

To sum up, these are some of the most popular choices to make your own site. They are suitable for different requirements. Choices are yours, make your choice.

    so does wordpress let you host a e-commerce site, like ebay…etc?

    Those hosting website seems are only for blogs, profile page… static pages. whereas if you want to have a dynamic page, like the comp344 assignment, you cant host it there?

    and you should put instructions on how to obtain your own domain! =D

    There are two ways, you can either register the domain somewhere else and host it here, or you can register the domain here as well.
