The three primary things to make a website are your domain name, web host and a topic.
Your role in getting your site completed correctly and in a timely manner is just as important as your website developer's/designer's. Determine what pages you want your site to have and what content will go on each page. Also, know what you want your site to be capable of (functionality). These are important things to know before choosing a host or building your site and will expedite the process.
SECURE YOUR DOMAIN NAME
A domain name, or Web address, is an address where you can be found online. It's how you'll express yourself through email or your website and it's what customers think of when trying to find you. Securing your domain name is smart and easy. Whatever your situation, if there's a particular name that you want, it's good to register it quickly. There's no guarantee that a domain name available today will be available tomorrow.A domain name is the first step to establishing your brand online. Register a name that reflects your company's or product's name. Be sure to keep it as short as possible. No one really enjoys typing a long name and there are increased chances for someone to misspell or omit a letter. Keep the name short, catchy, easy to spell, pronounce and memorable. You may want to consider registering misspelled versions of your name or multiple names that are similar and perhaps even securing your name with various extensions such as .com, .net, .biz, .org, etc.

YOU'LL NEED HOSTING
A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients. Basically, a host is where your website is stored and made available to the internet.There are lots of different web hosting companies all offering different services. Some offer free hosting (which may suit your first site) but they may put advertising on your site, they are however very useful for practicing. When looking for a host, there are a few important things to keep in mind. For instance, if this is your first site then you may need help with basic things, which some of the less expensive hosts simply won't do. Other things to consider are what you will need for your particular site. For example how much space you need to store your pages, how much bandwidth you need and what if any special extras you need to create your site. Complex websites call for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms. In a sense, the functionality you desire for your site will determine the type of host you need. If you plan to have a website that displays hours of video or other file downloads, you'll need a site hosted on a fast server with plenty of storage space.
