You may be thinking to yourself - is it even possible for me to create a responsive website by myself?

Well, let’s take a look back at what we had to go through not too long ago after taking some photographs. We had to send the film for developing and printing, without even having the option of viewing the photographs before they were printed. The same happened if you needed to create a website. It would have cost a lot of money to pay someone else to design and program the site for you, and then you would have needed some training on how to keep it updated. Today, everything has to be done now, immediately. Everything is shared and happening in real time; everything is simple. If you’re running a business, a website or a portfolio you need to be able to do all of that, and more.


 But how are you going to be able to do this?


In our next article we’re going to answer the question that brought you here in the first place. How to create a website? Be assured that after reading this article you’ll have all the knowledge and tools at your disposal to create your own beautiful and responsive website.

So let’s get started!

Step 5 – Publish your site, connect your domain

___________

It’s not all about how to create a website. You also need to make it easy for your clients to access your site. So after building your beautiful website, it’s time to get your domain and join the Internet. But what is a domain, you might well ask. Well, a domain is the name you give to your website (www.domain.com).

Domain prices are varied (from $5-$1000 and even more), due to the popularity of a given name. 

So try to think of a name that best suits your business, but also one that’s not already taken. 

Moreover, there’s a huge number of different providers for domain hosting services, and they differ on the quality of security. 

After completing all these steps, it’s now time to check your site and see whether it’s really how you imagined it to be. 

Change over to Preview then click “Publish” to bring your site to life; you’ll receive a temporary domain until you can connect to your own domain. Now click “View Live” to see your final result as a complete website. 

After checking that everything is working as it should, it’s time to connect your domain. The process is simple and quick, and includes adding an IP address to your domain host and adding the domain to your Simbla site.
