Choose a domain name. You can obtain a domain name by choosing a domain registrar company. Create a list of possible domain names, and check the domain registrar's website to see if the domain is available. When you find an available domain, purchase and register it.
Choose a hosting company online. To have an active website, you will need a place to host your content. For smaller hobby sites, you can find free hosting services such as Tripod.com or blogger.com. For serious projects, you should obtain a fee-based hosting plan. Select a plan that provides enough space and bandwidth for your website goals.
Select the type of website you want to build. You can choose from blogs (for personal content), forums (for communities), or static websites (for public content, products, or services). Next, choose a software application specifically created for your website style. There are many free software packages you can use to build your site, such as Wordpress.org (for blogs), SimpleMachines.org (for forums), or Joomla.org (for static sites).
Configure your domain name to direct users to your hosted site. Log into your domain name registrar, and click on the 'manage domain' section. Follow the registrar's instructions to point the domain to your hosted site. You should also familiarize yourself with the software application you choose to manage your site, and follow any software-specific instructions when configuring your site online.
Build the content on your site. Most websites contain written articles, pictures, and more. Use the software application you chose to publish content online. Build the content in a logical and organized way, so readers can access your pages with ease.
Promote your site online. Submit your site to the major search engines by manually visiting each one, and following the 'Add URL' instructions. Also visit the popular directories and manually add your website to the appropriate category. Seek out other websites that focus on similar topics and exchange links with the webmasters.
Actively manage your website. This includes duties such as continually building content, adding hyperlinks to pages within your site, optimizing your site for search engines (by building hyperlinks and using proper keywords in your page titles), and repairing broken links. You also need to renew your hosting plan each month, and your domain name annually to keep your site active on the web.
