When it comes to building a website, there are few ways to approach it. You can build an entire website in one fell swoop with all the features and functionality you need. Sounds easy right? Well if you have all the pieces then it definitely is. This includes all the content, graphics, Videos, the features list you want, the Needed budget.
The Modular approach lets you get started when you still need some of these pieces to the puzzle. Building the website in this manner lets you plan for future growth and is easy on the pocket book.
This method also lets you spread your website across multiple content management systems (CMS)
Most people find out fairly quickly that building a website is a lot more work then it first appears and that there are some things that you are told you need that you never knew even existed, it can be quite an overwhelming experience.
I say “Think of A Website like a House”. You see when you build a house you need blueprints and a contractor to build it, Just like a website needs a Layout Plan and a Web Developer to build it.
When you got the plans and team ready to start building you need to find a patch of land to build your house on just like you need to find a patch of online land to place your website on… this is called Hosting which just like land comes with a yearly fee.
Next you need to get your home it’s own address so that people can find it. This is the same as buying your website name or “Domain registration”. This registration is only the name of the website, it is not the website itself,… the files, the database, images. It just points to the patch of online land you have built your website on, that’s all.
