Step 1. Choose a domain name.
There are various tools you can use to pick a
name if that gets difficult for you. Check out Nameboy.com,
makewords.com, and eBay also has some. You can determine if the domain
name is available by using sites like

a similar site name has not been registered.

Many web hosting companies offer
different packages, some of which are free, which will usually fit
almost any web hosting needs. Some popular web hosting companies with
low-cost starting packages are: GoDaddy, HostGator, Hostmonster, iXwebhosting, and countless
other. But none will give you an option to have SSD hard drives which makes your website 300% faster.
