I doing website design quite a long time, many peoples want to own themselves a website to show their content , or even like a blog post , or even you want to sell products or services , you also can create yourself a website to let peoples know what you are doing. But how ? Well, I will break down 3 parts on how to publish your website : 1) Creating your website , 2) Get a hosting plan ( included a domain name for the website ) . 3) Upload and publish your website using FTP application. By doing these 3 steps, you will have your website published as www.xxxxxxxx.com/edu/mil/org. xx

The three essential steps to publish your website onto the web are:

1. Creating your website

First you have to create a website. Depending on your level on knowledge in web development you have the following options. Either you can create the site yourself through manual programming in an editor program like DreamWeaver, EditPlus or Notepad. Otherwise there are a number of open source alternatives available without any requirement of prior programming knowledge.

Using Wordpress

Wordpress.org is one free content management system that is used by millions of blogging laymen. With it comes a whole system that makes it easy to add new content to your site and already made web design themes for you to choose between.

Other alternatives

Joomla is another free CMS software which basically creates the site for you and eases the task of content administration. The only thing you have to do is to install it properly. In addition to this, you are also normally granted free access to site-building tools when you sign up for a hosting plan.

2. Get a hosting plan

Next step is to find somewhere online to put your website files and assign an address to that somewhere. Any given hosting plan include storage space on a web server and a domain name registration. Depending on what size your website has and potential traffic volume it's going to generate, you get a hosting plan based on three factors - storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Nowadays, there are many qualitative and cheap web hostingplans to choose between.
For all of you into blogging, there are also many great WordPress web hosts offering cheap hosting that is tailored to support this CMS.

3.Upload your files/Publish your website

Upload your files to the root directory of your purchased web hosting server space. You can do this either by using your hosting account's inhouse file manager, but those are often slow and manage large file volume poorly. Our recomendation is to get your hands on a FTP client. More specifically, a FireFox add-on by the nameFireFTP. It will allow you to access your hosting account directly in the web browser and transfer website files with ease.
Assuming that are new to site building and all that web developments entiles, for you to get a website up and running sooner rather than later, we suggest you follow the steps above. Use open source and the blessing of freeware. Get a hosting plan that matches your needs and publish your files through a FTP client like FireFtp. There will be things to rememeber and learn along the way, but if you follow this path, or these guidelines, creating a website will not seem so impossible.

So, are you familiar on these 3 steps ? I hope you'll do and learn to be the one who can publish yourself a website to let visitors to read your content or buy something and even others......
