WHAT IS A WEBSITE?
Before beginning with the “What to Do’s”, let us first understand what is a Website or site? A site is nothing but a compilation (or a set) of pages linked with a single domain. Which means, if you are creating a website say, allindiansports.com, it will have a number of pages related to your domain like History, Statistics, Current Matches or anything you like. These pages will represent what your website is all about. To host this website, you need a web server. You can create a personal, government, non-governmental, commercial, or blog site depending on your choice.
WHY CREATE A WEBSITE?
According to a recent survey, it was revealed that 45.1 percent of the overall internet usage comes from Asia alone. So, imagine how many people in the ‘world’ are currently accessing the internet right now? Here are some of the reasons why to create a website of your own?
Everybody wants everybody to know them! If you are a businessman, you surely would want your products and services to be told to people. If you are a writer, you’d want the world to know about your skills. No matter in which profession you are, a website for you is always waiting.
The vast visibility and reach is the foremost reason why everybody wants to be a part of the web and a website serves the purpose perfectly!
Whatever you wish to let the world know, you do it real time with websites. All updates, all additions, all the changes reach globally in just one click.
Your information will never be lost again. You are free to make changes and save all you want to. Your products and their specifications will stay there as long as you want them to. You can access it anywhere with the internet and ask people to open your websites in case they wish to know more. Makes you proud, doesn’t it?
It’s an Add-On to your Profit!
Even if you have a shop where you sell your products, you still won’t mind some additional income. Will you? Surely not! A website is always an add-on to your profit margins. You can display your items on the website, put in the database of its services/features with your contact details and Viola! You’re done. Interested people will get back to you without you putting an effort into door-to-door promotions!
So are you all set to build your website? Read about Professional Website Builders first.
PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE BUILDERS
Earlier, putting your hands into building your website was a tiresome, long and time consuming task. Also, with many professional website builders or the Web Designing Companies ruling the business world, making your own site better than them, was even a harder struggle! These professional organizations took a lot of share of your pockets and months of your time to hand over your websites to you! And because people wanted to enjoy the vast traffic through the internet and gain more profit but were unaware of the coding languages, they relied on these web firms for their websites. Here are some of the things you need to know about them:
In order to build the website, the user first has to register his/her domain. This involved annual registering charges for the domain hosting. Also he/she has to buy some hosting space in order to upload and make their websites live.
These web designing companies build your content which appears on your website. This is also a paid service.
Every professional website building company charges their customers for the maintenance of their websites. Since these are dynamic websites, the charges are higher as compared to the static websites.
This is a very important aspect of driving traffic onto your sites. However, the websites created by the professional firms usually lack the intense Search Engine Optimization which is a long, thoughtful process all together.
But, now the times have changed! Internet is flooding with free website building options.
FREE WEBSITE BUILDING SERVICES
People, today, are not interested in sitting back and comparing various website building services and wasting time. They are neither interested in waiting for months, nor they want to shed huge amounts of money in private firms who’d create their websites.

Apart from the expenses, another problem why people switched to professional web designers was the lack of knowledge of the coding language. Since people were unaware of it, they had no other option than to walk their ways to them which led to huge expenditures. As, people wanted to have their share of popularity through the web, they were bound to have their own functional websites. This increased the bulk of work with the designers and monopoly rooted itself leading to a lot of chaos. So there came a rescue- Pre-Defined Templates!
