Hi! Do you have a clear idea what your website will be focused on and how you want it to be structured like how many pages it will have and what they will be about? I think the easiest way to start with a minimal budget is to opt for a website builder like Wix, SitePad or other they are free and you will pay only for the hosting and domain name (actually some hosts offer free domain names under certain circumstances and similar website builders at no additional cost. You can benefit from plenty of themes, widgets and great features. And about the hosting provider - in which country you prefer its servers to be located?
Regarding your question about the best domain name you should choose one that best represents your business idea and niche. It should be easy to write and remember, also not too long nor too short. You should tell us what your website will be about, so we can give you advice whether to choose .com , .org , .info or other (although .com is considered the most preferred extension).
Of course, you may look for a company that provides website building services, but then you will need to pay a little bit more money.

For the resources your looking for and the budget, there shouldn't be to much trouble finding a host in that price range. If you haven't already done so, the Shared Hosting Offers under the Advertising section has many solid listings to check over, and can help give you an idea of some of offers out there already.

It should be easily feasible unless you are looking for a managed Wordpress hosting. Hopefully other members can make the suggestions based on their experience using different hosts. It might also make it easier for others to make recommendations if you specify your preferred server location. Best of luck.

Here are one by one steps for you to start building your own site -

1. Purpose of site - First decide what is the purpose of developing the site, what is it's use to you.

2. Domain name - Once you are sure about the purpose and use of the site then you should think about the domain name for your website. Find the catchy and small domain name which will be remembered by the users easily.

3. Platform for web design and development - Decide on which platform you would like to design and development. You can create the hard coded site or you can use the in-built CMS like WordPress, Joomla for the web development.

I would suggest, if you are new to web design and development then use the CMS (Content Management System). There are so many themes available which you can install and just need to replace your contents.

4. Web Hosting Service - When you will become sure about the platform then search for the web hosting service which is suitable for you. Study and review the web hosting plans of various providers and after that make the list of top three in the list. If it's suitable to you then try the hosting service for some trial period and after that sing-up for the hosting service. ]

Make sure the hosting provider will fulfill your disk space and bandwidth usage.

5. Web design and development - Once you've signed-up for the web hosting service then start the web-design and development.

6. Upload the contents - Upload all the contents under the web hosting service panel.

7. Check the site is running properly or not by adding the entry in the hostfile. So before getting site live, you should make sure it is loading properly or not.

8. Update the nameservers - If testing is done properly then you should update the nameservers for making the site live. You will need to contact your hosting provider for nameservers and for updating them you should contact the domain registrar.

After updating the nameservers, it will take 24 to 48 hours for DNS propagation.

All done! :)

For a complete beginner I would recommend starting with wordpress, most hosting providers offer one click installation and you'll have a live website in minutes. Then you can go and customize it with a template of your choice.

I highly recommend WordPress for beginners like me. It is easy to use and customize. But first off all you have to decide what kind of site are you doing, what is the purpose of this site and if you can manage it. Check other sites as reference for your site.

Try Slides of Google or Wix. They're very elementary with the workaround of how to's. They have guidelines and pathways for building a site if you don't have any idea how on how to start with. Beautiful templates and themes are readily availble to make your site really look professional. The best part is you don't need to pay a single cent to create one. :ertery:

You can try free sites like Wix and Word Press. All instructions are given once you search and open these sites. Just make sure that you are decided on what you want to start and publish in your website before making one. Also make sure you follow the instructions to avoid any inconvenience in the future.

Good day, as a newbie I would highly suggest to start from the very basic just like WordPress or use free hosting website and create a blog or whatever you want to do. After getting used to it, you can start upgrading your platforms into website manners. However, I will always suggest to do some research before you make some steps.

I would suggest you take up Wordpress and create the necessary things for your blog. There are lots of different and gorgeous theme on Wordpress. For web hosting and domain, you could try Hostgator? Just my $0.02. It seems pretty popular.

However, if you unsure of the design you want, you could try looking for a hosting company where you could purchase web hosting+domain+web design services altogether. But, that's if you are willing to fork out more.

The first thing to do is get a domain name. Then look for a small and cheap hosting plan. If you look around, you may find some companies offering free trials. After that, install Wordpress. Why Wordpress? Well, it's very user-friendly and it can be used to produce many different types of websites. Plus it's free. Don't worry about making a mess. You can always delete and re-install.

I like this ideas and it is really very essential for new users who want to have their own websites appear on the web via a web hosting plan. To be honest, I also started with this way for my first websites.

The 1st thing which you need to shortlist is the niche in which you want to create a website. Thereafter, you have to look at the type of domain name which you want to register. You can either opt for a brandable domain name or you can opt for industry-related domain name. Only once you have registered the domain name, you can move to choose the right web hosting for your website.

Initially, shared web hosting would be more than enough for your website. Once the hosting is sorted, you have to change the name servers and you can go with the content management system like WordPress. After that, it is up to you to choose the theme as well as upload the content on your website.

This is a basic blueprint which you can use to create your 1st website.

You have gotten some useful replies but I will put in something that will make all the site of a thing success.

First think of what you love doing, I know the purpose of making a site is to earn money with it. And in most cases, money won't come as soon as you expect it. If you dont love the topic you blog about about then you will storm out of the game, which is so bad.

Action tip to follow the above statement is to create a list of things you love doing and that with enough audience. Pick the best that suit the two criteria and start your website creation.

I would recommend Wordpress and Wix for beginners for it is much more easier to use and their guidelines much easier to understand. But before you continue this dream of yours, you must first set what your site would really be. Know your subject and focus on it, having your own site is a big responsibility which only gives you the question: Can you handle it?

Yes this advice is for beginners because to start a Wordpress site on your own hosting is not easy and you need to have knowledge about web hosting and website management

Are you talking free Wordpress and Wix site builder on Wordpress.com and Wix.com?

If you are starting your own or personal blog then you don't need to care about these points, let start which you like as that's your hobbies and you will be succeed.
