How to setup a website in less than 30 minutes
I'm Austin Hulak, a professional web designer.
I created this website in order to help you create your first website – even if you have absolutely no clue as to where to start!
In My First Website Tutorial, I will walk you through the three simple steps required to setup a beautiful website with a professional .com domain name. You do not need to have any prior knowledge about computers or website design, in order to understand this tutorial and have your very own website in less than half an hour.
Although the information in this tutorial is completely free, running and maintaining a website as described in this tutorial will cost between $3 and $4 a month.
You are in good company! Thousands of people have visited this site and successfully setup their own websites. Whether you need a website for your small business or simply wish to create an online resume or blog, this tutorial makes it the easiest it’s ever been. And of course, if you run into any roadblocks, I am always reachable via email (I am always happy to help!).
A Quick Overview
Although brief, this is a very important overview.
There are only two steps required to have a fully functional website up and running:
- You will need to signup for webhosting and a domain name (ie. yoursite.com)
- Choosing the design and layout of your site. (No coding necessary!)
In the next couple of sections of this tutorial, I will explain what webhosting is (and why it matters to you!), as well as how to get your site up and running in less than 15 minutes. If you don’t care to learn about webhosting, feel free to skip ahead to Getting Started, and I will explain exactly what you need to do to get your site live.
