How Do I Go About Creating a Website?

Q: I have a brilliant idea for a social website but I have no idea how to build it. Where would I find someone who can help me build this website or how can I begin to build it on my own?

1. Choose a reliable web host.

2. Buy a domain.
You can buy hosting package and domain from the same host or seperately.

3. Use a pre-made script/template (so you can make a site yourself even if you don’t know much about coding). Also you can use a customized script coded by a web designer if needed.

4. Finally promote your site after it’s created.
