First of all, let us clear up the basics.
What is a website? & What is a web-page?
Since a large number of people are confused between these two, it
would be a good idea to explain them first. A website is a whole group
of web pages. Just like a whole group of "pages" make up a book, a whole
group of web-pages make up a website. A web-page is an individual
“page” or unit of a website.
For example: You are currently reading a “web page”. This web page combined with all the other web pages linked to this page make up this website…indiahowto.com
It is possible to create a website “free of charge” on the
Internet. This is done though “free hosting”. The problem
is, that your website will not look very professional. This is because
the companies that let you create a free website, will make you put
their adds on your website.
Another problem that you will have is that, your website address will not be a “.com” like www.indiahowto.com. On the other hand, it will be some long name like "www.freehosting.coolsite.com"
these reasons, it would be good to NOT create a free website if you are
doing something serious, like making a website for your business etc.
On the other hand, if you are creating a website just for fun or just as a learning experience etc. if would be best to go in for a free hosting website.
If you are interested in creating a professional looking website, you
will have to go in for “paid hosting”. Paid hosting has
many advantages over free hosting. Firstly, since you “buy”
space on the Internet, it’s your space and so nobody will make
you put any annoying adds on your site.
Also, you will have your own “.com” like www.mysite.com!
These are required if you intend to use your website for any serious purposes. In any case, paid hosting is not very costly. It is around Rs.450/- for buying the “.com” name and around Rs.800-Rs.1500 for a 50MB space for one year.
The process of creating a “free website” and the process of creating a “paid website” are a little different. In this article we will explain to you how to do both.
We have used the word “hosting” many times in the last few
paragraphs. You may be wondering, “What is hosting?”
Hosting is basically putting your website up on the Internet. Hosting is pretty much like buying some land or buying a shop, so that you can start a business. However, on the Internet, hosting is buying space. Space in terms of MB.
Free hosting companies give you some space free. They give you this space free of charge in return for putting their adds on your website. Paid hosting companies charge you for the space that they give you.
Basically making a website is all about these 3 things.
In this article we will show you how to do all these things so read on!
