If you’re launching a website for your business or organization, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are a few things you’ll need to consider first.
Before publishing a website you will need to decide on:
- A domain name
- A web hosting provider
- A website platform
Your domain name is your company’s online address (yoursite.com). Your web hosting provider provides the place where your website files are stored and made available on the Internet. A website platform can refer to the operating system or applications used on your web host’s server (Linux, Windows, Apache, PHP, etc.), a content management system like WordPress or Joomla, a website builder like Squarespace or Wix, or a combination of these.
