How to host a website?
There are three main categories you should consider when hosting a website:
1) Domain Registration
2) Web hosting
3) Installing your website theme/template
✓ Before you start worrying about hosting and domain names, you’ve got to decide what platform you’re going to build your website with.
✓ The Most Popular Site Building Platforms in 2017 are WordPress and Drupal.
✓ For beginners, I recommend sticking to WordPress. Nearly 50% websites on the Internet are running on the WordPress platform.
Before hosting your website online you need to have a domain name.
✓ Some websites like Godaddy are official domain registrars and they provide web hosting.(But you can do these separately)
✓ You Could use GoDaddy just for Domain Registration and Use Some other services like Bluehost.com, hostgator.com to host your Website or Blog.
✓ Hosting providers like bluehost.com will throw in a free domain and WordPress One- Click Installation along with web hosting plans($2.75/mo).
Once you’ve purchased your domain name and set up your hosting. Now we will focus on how to host and publish the website.
The first thing you’ll need to do is install WordPress to your domain.
