How to do Web Development Yourself

Nowadays, do-it-yourself web development is beoming more prominent.  This is because hiring someone to do web development for you can be quite expensive.  So what can you do?  Where do you begin your web development? 

The first thing to think about in web development is the domain name.  Every website has a domain name, it's the part that comes after www.  It does cost money to obtain a domain name, but there are tons of places you can do this so you can begin your web development.  Think of a domain as 'space on the internet' that you're renting, much like a business.  It is usually a yearly payment you make to pay the 'rent' in order to retain ownership.  If you do not retain that ownership, your website will not be accessible and your web development will not be seen.

Setting up hosting is the next stage in web development.  This is the place where your web development is essentially 'stored' so you can work on it .  Generally, you have to purchase server space and bandwidth for your web development.  While it is possible to fine free hosting services, it isn't recommented because most of the time you are paying for it with ads placed all over your web site without any thought given to the web development you've put so much work into.  This is best avoided because the ads can be very intrusive and can greatly interfere with the web development you have done.

Content management systems are a recommended way to create your web development.  Wordpress is one of the most popular tools due to its fairly simple interface and abundance of information available online.  Sometimes people can speed up the web development process by purchasing templates, which is essentially a pre-made layout for a website.  This means they can avoid many of the more complex elements of web development and focus just on page creation as well as content.

What appears at the top left part of your web development is important to keep in mind.  This is usually where people start and you what your web development to grab their attention right away.  What you want people to see first about your web development should be placed here.  Think of it from both yours and their perspective.

Taking the time to do web development will allow you to become accustomed to how it all works.  The web development will become much easier over time and you will be more familiar with the lingo and language used.  And before long you will be comfortable with doing web development yourself.
