How Build a Website with Godaddy A Complete Guide From Domain Registration To Hosting
In this blog we going to learn How Build a Website with Godaddy , So I am assuming that you have developed and tested your website on your local system and are ready to get live as soon as possible. Getting a website live these days is not that much difficult .So here are some best and easiest way of getting you live on the internet.
1. Get a Domain Name :
If you already know what is Domain name and why it is used then it’s better, If not let me explain on the internet, your domain name is your unique identity. Any individual, business or organization planning to have an internet presence should invest in a domain name, website and email address will give your business a more professional look. Another reason for a business to register a domain name is to protect copyrights and trademarks, build credibility increase brand awareness, and search engine positioning.
Finding a domain based on your requirement is quite difficult because sometime your required domain is already registered by someone else and this makes more anoying. So let’s get a domain name first and for that, I would prefer NameCheap because of its intuitive dashboard, good service and very powerful control panel
Just book a domain name preferably a “.com” for the international market and your own country specific like “.in”, “.co.in” for India. Don’t worry about settings now, after we will have all the necessary ingredients, we will revisit and setup everything to get you live.
2. Get a Hosting Service :
The next process after booking your domain name for eg.”abc.com” or “xyz.in” .The next point is that where to place all your website content, as it needs a remote location. It basically called hosting and again there are a hell lot of ways to host a website and equal numbers of providers who offer such services.You may come across terms like shared hosting/VPS hosting/Cloud hosting and many such things, just don’t get confused by all these nasty terms, they all provides you a machine with some space on it and some horsepower (RAM/CPU) to run your website. Now shared hosting might give you less whereas VPS will give you more for more charge of course. So let’s again go with the simplest and the best approach and for that I would prefer Digital Ocean and reasons are
- It’s simple and not at all confusing.
- Gives you a bare metal box where you can install any OS or server and do whatever you want.
- It starts with 5$ plan which gives you 512MB RAM and 20GB SSD. Wow! this is really really great.
- To give you some more confidence about Godaddy, CyberTecz runs on Godaddy’s 2GB droplet and serves more than 1 million page-views every month. We have also seen 600+ online visitors at any point of time and that’s really a very great deal.
