How to Start a Web Site

One question I get asked a lot is, “How do I start a web site?” or, “What’s it take to get a web site?”  Which is the kind of question that I have to answer with more questions, after first saying, “Well, it depends.”  It depends on what you’re going to do with it, whether you plan to sell stuff on it, how much traffic you expect it to get, and so on.  In some cases, you might even be better off getting a blog at Blogger or an Ebay store and not having your own web site at all.  So it really does depend.

But in general, if someone wants to start a web site, there are a series of steps that every new site owner will need to go through.  We’re dedicated to the idea of helping people do as much of their own website work as possible, so I’ve written up a how-to that covers those steps in some detail and posted it on our webmaster site (see the link earlier).  I hope people find it useful.
