Register a domain

The first step in creating a website is choosing a right domain name for your business/blog. There is a myth that domain name must include the keyword of your business for better ranking in Search Engines. That is not true, even if the keyword is not included in the domain name, Search Engines will still rank your website. Check for the availability and recommendations so that you get new ideas. After you have decided the domain name, next step is to choose a right plan that suits your website. If you have a just basic website and not sure which plan to choose then go with a starter plan first for 1 year. Based on your requirements, you can upgrade your plans later.

Selecting a best web hosting service
