But I don’t understand HTML coding!?
Relax, if I can manage to build a fully working site in just one afternoon without having a clue about HTML, then anyone can. Creating your first website might seem like it should be a task for the professional web-builders, but believe me it’s more simple than you think.
First things first!
Before you can you get started you will need a domain name for your site – for example ‘yourdomainname.com’. For those of you who are not familiar with the internet yet, these names can be purchased very cheaply from sites such as Go-Daddy.com and Hostgator.com for about $9. Make sure you choose a good name for your site which is relevant to what you are promoting as this helps with the search engines.
What about hosting?
Hosting is usually offered by the domain providers for an extra charge as an all inclusive package deal or you may wish to shop around and see what other companies are offering. Just be aware that long term deals may be involved and the bandwidth may be limited which will in-turn limit your online space. Free premium hosting with unlimited bandwidth can often be found in affiliate membership sites, which are also a good place to start when looking to get your first site up and running due to the wealth of knowledge and information available to you as a member.
What else do these Membership sites offer?
For the beginner to internet marketing who is baffled by HTML but wants to create a website from scratch for free, then these places are a godsend! If you are looking for step by step video tutorials, pre-made web templates and all other resources to get you on the road to success, then it is worth the small membership fee being asked for. Becoming a member will save you hours of head-scratching, or a pile of money to pay out to the site builders.
