How to Build a Website: Tutorial in 3 Steps

How to Build a Website: Tutorial in 3 Steps

Building a website is an often overlooked topic in the deluge of ebooks out there on how to start a business. 

But maybe you just want to build a simple website where you can put up a few photos and share them with your family and friends. 

Recently, a friend of mine needed a website to display his resume online. 

Or, maybe you just want to build a website to sell online and make enough residual income for a car payment.

With the right tools, building a website can be a step by step process and is much more simple than many people might think.  It’s definitely not something to fear any longer.  If you can get online and read this article, you can certainly build a website.  You just need a little instruction.

Here are a few tips for getting started.

* Have an idea on what you need the website to do.  Will it be for family photos, a resume, your journal entries, or do you want to put up products for sale, or work with affiliates and sell their products?  Keeping this in mind gives you an idea on how complex building the site will be. 

* Find an easy web building tool.  This step is key.  I’ve built numerous websites and have tried many of the tools out there.  Some cost big bucks, some charge monthly fees before you even begin building, but I’ve found that the best, and easiest tool, is actually free.  Tripod, owned by Lycos, lets you build your entire site before they charge you a penny.  If you don’t like where you end up, you can start over and try again, all for no cost.  If you like what you’ve built then the only cost is for a domain name (includes hosting fees) and removes any advertisements from your site.  Simple as that.

* Find people like you who can help get you started and that you can talk to along the way.  I didn’t have this chance when I got started, but it would have helped me drastically.  With the advent of social networking sites, you can easily find a community where there are others like you who are in the same position, or willing to coach.

Question by telefonquestion: Want to build website that contains long form to fill-out. Which program do you recommend?
I want to be able to add a very long form to my website. It needs to be broken down into several screens since it is so long e.g. step 1, step 2, etc. I need to make sure that it would work with the server when I submit it. I was first using the Yahoo sitebuilder, but I didn’t break it up into more pages, because then it would be separtate forms and I want to keep it all as one.

Best answer:

Answer by SweeterThanWine
Visual Basic is a good form building code.
And can be converted to .exe if you want.
