How to Set Up a Website

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 @ 10:38 am by ProBlogit.com

I have written a similar topic to this before, Setting Up a Blog, but it was not so detailed compared to what I have written at Sehdi.com.

I wrote this blog entry, How to Set Up a Website, on the assumption that you already registered a domain name with a domain registrar and signed up for a web hosting account with a web hosting provider.

Just like in my previous posts, I will use DreamHost on how to set up a Website in this example as I am comfortable using DreamHost being its customer for three (3) years now. I also like the features that DreamHost offers.

I wrote about this topic on how to get a web host or how to sign up for a web hosting account at Sehdi.com. It is a follow up to my blog entry on how to register a domain name.

I used DreamHost as the web hosting provider to illustrate to you how to sign up for a web hosting account. For one thing, DreamHost offers a free trial at the moment.

Choosing a Web Host

Choosing a web host depends on your requirements. Your requirements in looking for a web host are different from mine. For a beginner for example, if you are not yet familiar with programming languages and databases, all you probably need is just to have a space or a website or a blog where you can write your thoughts online.

I consider myself no longer a newbie in this field but there are things too that I still have to know concerning web hosting business. But I know what I want and what I need when I am looking for a web host.

If you visit a site of a web host you will see a lot of features that a web hosting company offers. You read the list of features and it looks, even sounds foreign to you. Do not panic, they normally have an explanation what each term is all about if you just look at the Glossary page or Frequently Asked Questions page at the site of the web host.
