A website is a much-required step whether you are starting a small-scale business or looking for ways to boost your ongoing business and connect with your clients efficiently. In today’s day and age, where the internet is prioritized for every query, building a website is the first step you should be taking.

A website provides your customer to gain access to information without making much of an effort, and it makes them feel more informed and open to your brand. If you want to create a website but don’t want to spend a fortune, the best way is to do it yourself.

Here’s how you can do it in just 5 steps without much hassle:

Find a Web Host and Sign up:

The first and foremost step is to find a web host, i.e., a place for your site to exist. Now, once you’ve decided which platform you want to build your website on, for instance, Wix. The sign-up process on Wix is more manageable, and it is perfect for beginners. Usually, the free plans of website creation sites do not allow the user to add special features or any other eCommerce specifics.

However, they are great to try your hand at website creation, discovering new features. If you want to straight away get to making some real cash, then invest some on their premium plans and start creating the website of your dreams. 

Decide How You Want to Create Your Site:

Once you’re done signing up, the next step is to decide how you want to get started. There are two different ways; you can either use the WIX ADI or the WIX Editor. The ADI is Wix’s artificial intelligence website creator that allows you to create your website by answering a series of questions and leads you to create the perfect website.

This option is likely the best option for all beginners. On the other hand, with the editor, you start with a template and make it your own by designing it yourself from top to bottom. 

Connect Your Domain:

Now that you have created a design for your website, you need to connect it to a domain. You can either connect it to an existing domain you know and own or buy a new one. If you plan to get a new domain name, the hardest part is deciding on one that isn’t already taken.

Once you’ve decided that and are ready to create a domain name, you can either use a domain registrar or directly go through your eCommerce platform. 

Add Essential Data and Set up Your Site:

If you are building an eCommerce site, then the essentials include product lists, shipping regions, and details, and payment methods for the most part. To add the products, navigate to “Store Products” on your dashboard, then click on “+New Product” and start adding your products. Similarly, for payments and shipping, go on “Store Shipping, Accept Payments” and add the details.

Publish Your Website:

Lastly, it’s finally time to publish your site and take it to live for people to view it. You must have created and connected a domain and paid for a plan (if not using the free plan). 

Click on the publish button in the top right corner, and just like that, your site is now live.
