Why is it so Important for me to Create my own website?

As an individual or a business owner, you can make effective use of your website to communicate with your existing and potential customers, vendors and other stakeholders. One cannot emphasize enough on the importance of being present on the internet and exhibiting your online visibility for comprehensive business growth. Creating your website opens doors to continuous communication and engagement with audiences around the world. Creating a website has simply become an indispensable option for businesses.

How do I create my own Website?

HTML is one of the simplest computer languages used in website designing. It is an extremely popular web design tool that is not only easy to understand but pretty effective in creating a portal that is aesthetic and functional to the cause of your business.

What is HTML?

HTML, short for ‘Hyper Text Markup Language’ helps create some very interesting pages that are compatible with popular browsers like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox. For those who find this code a little difficult, there are ready programs such as Dreamweaver and Front-page which facilitate easy designing and creation of professional looking pages.

For those who would be interested in acquainting themselves with the coding language there are a variety of guides, books and magazine which help you through the process of designing the portals. One can even find some online tutorials and code template that can be customized to incorporate elements such as font type, size, scrolling options, background images etc.

Factors to Consider while Designing your own Portal

Before you choose to start building your own website, you need to consider the following factors - Cost of creation, functional requirement of the portal, maintenance and web hosting.

Though you may feel that you have saved yourself a couple of hundred bucks by taking up this project on your own, consider other factors with respect to hosting and maintenance which can prove to be tedious and expensive in the long run. If your website is basic or follows the format of a blog, it may not be as much of trouble manage one on your own, but if you intend to update your pages and its design regularly, and expect to maintain dynamic pages, it is recommended that you weigh your options with hiring a professional team with whom you can negotiate a bulk rate on the project and acquire an annual contract for site maintenance.

Also consider the type and size of your business and the rate at which you intend to scale up your project. If your project seems to be too ambitious, opt to hire web design professionals who are in the position to help you achieve your targets. As long as you are not compromising on quality and meeting your customer demands, you are free to make your own decisions.
