HOW TO: Setup a website.
Below is a short list of the steps required to setup a website. Most of this setup work is referred to as setting up the “back-end,” a lot of behind the scenes work goes into creating a website before you can even start designing the website. Domain name choices, hosting choices and choosing a designer to build your website, or are you going to tackle it yourself.
– What is a website?
Your home on the www – to me it’s best described as an electronic brochure, an ebrochure, usually designed with Wordpress a publishing platform that is extensible. 3rd party plug-ins (addons) let you setup contact forms, or a store and sell your products.

Purchase Domain name & Hosting (annual fee)
SSL Security Certificate (secure website, annual fee)
Config Hosting (once Hosting is purchased, it must be setup, ssl certificates, email accounts, ftp access)
