Thousands of people are going online for the first time each day. This is the beginning of the information revolution, which is the next economical step past the industrial revolution. Many people are looking to be part of this revolution and put up their own website. They want to be able to express themselves, tell a story or even start an Internet business. Whatever your reason is for wanting a website, there are many different approaches that can help you to get your own website.
Back in old days, websites were written in a specific type of computer programming known as hypertext markup language , also known as HTML. Compared to other computer languages, this isnâ€™t really that hard to learn. The real issue with using HTML is learning how to make things look nice and consistent in all browsers. Most people want a website that is professional looking and easy to update. The problem is that they don’t have any web design knowledge and they think it’s an easy task.
Itâ€™s true that packages like Dreamweaver can help you to build a website more easier than doing it in HTML. But the problem with it is that you still need to spend a few weeks learning the software before you start building your own website. Unless you have a lot of spare time, then you may find this option to be suitable for you. If you are like most small business owners; you have limited budget and you always busy with other thing, and you are looking for a quicker way to build your website? The answer to that is WordPress.

All you have to do is give your site a title, add your username, password and your site is instantly created.
WordPress comes with a very basic design that you might to want to change. There are thousands of templates available for WordPress. All you have to do is pick one, change it slightly and add your businessâ€™s banner or logo to the top. It wonâ€™t win any design awards but itâ€™s a good start pointing. You can always hire a professional web designer to redesign it when your business starts to profit.
