Don’t know if Google even can say how many websites are there in the internet today. Everyday hundreds of new websites are adding in the list. Most of those are designed by some Web Design Company for their clients. But, there are people who want to do it themselves – maybe there’s some emotional matter or maybe financial. Whatever, if you want to learn designing a website yourself, this article would help you. Just follow the steps carefully.
Create The Draft
First of all you have to create a draft design of your website in a paper. Yup, you might have a full image in your mind; but, believe me, it will help you fine tune and rectify your design. Mark the places you want to add images, texts or some tabs. Don’t focus here on the theme or color combination. Just draw an outline of the contents. There are several Web Design Company whom you can follow to set your layout.
Convert It Into PSD Image
Now, open any photo editing software like Photoshop or Paint Shop to create the soft copy of the design. Of course, it needs enough skill and experience to create a stunning design. However, again I’ll suggest you to follow some of the creative ones from the portfolio of any reputed Web Design Company; you’ll get different creative ideas. Just mix them and create a new one for you.
If you check the source code of any website you will find that everything is placed between an opening tag and a closing tag . There are several websites that provide free tutorial for HTML. Reputed Web Design Company use world class coding. However, you too can do it yourself through studying it a little bit. Though you can do it through any word processing application like notepad, I’ll suggest you to use dedicated applications like AceHTML, DreamWeaver etc. that will lessen the requirement of exhaustive knowledge.
Though the basic feature is same like HTML, CSS is far advance in changing the look and feel of the website with minimal coding. If you use CSS, it will enhance the look and feel of the website dramatically without writing exhausting html codes. Every leading Web Design Company use CSS in a great extent than html to make a gorgeous site. However, no doubt, it is a bit difficult to learn than html.
Domain Creation and Hosting
Well, I think your website designing is almost complete; though there are endless features and functionalities you may add still now, if you want to invest more time and effort. But, for the beginners, it’s time to create the domain name that is the URL. There are several websites as well as Web Design Company which offer to create domains at very affordable cost. Actually, you can’t buy a domain; but rent it for one or two or three years. Some of the websites offer some free space with the domain or you might have to buy separately. Once it’s complete, transfer the files through the FTP provided by the server space provider.
Congratulation! Your website has now become live. However, it might not appear that much simple if you are not familiar with coding; but believe me, it’s neither too tough. However, if fund allows, I would recommend you to search for a good web design company and let them do it for you.
