Creating a new website in 10 steps

Creating a new website in 10 steps

Creating a website can seem like a daunting task, but with the right process and tools, anyone can do it. In this blog post, we will walk through 10 steps you need to take to create a successful website from scratch.

1. Choose your domain name

Your domain name is your website’s address on the internet. It’s how your customers will find you online, so it’s important to choose a good one. When choosing a domain name, make sure it’s easy to spell and remember, it’s short, and avoid hyphens or numbers.

2. Find a web hosting provider

The first step to creating a new website is finding a web hosting provider. This is a company that will provide you with the space and resources necessary to host your website.

3. Set up your website

There are many different ways to build a website, but we recommend using WordPress. WordPress is a popular content management system that makes it easy to create and manage a website. Plus, there are thousands of themes and plugins available for WordPress websites, which makes it easy to customise your site to fit your needs.


If you’re not sure how to get started with WordPress or don’t have the time, don’t worry! Professional agencies like Diginomad can set up and maintain a website without the stress of doing it yourself. Their team of professional web developers will design the perfect website to suit your business needs.

4. Choose the design

Do you want a simple template or something more complex? Something easy to customise or something ready to go? No matter your choice, make sure that your house styles, like logos, colours and fonts, are reflected in the design of your website. That ensures recognisability across all your means of communication.

5. Add content to your website

When creating a new website, you want to add value by adding content. This can be done in the form of pages and blog posts. Make sure the content is well-written and error-free and you proofread and edit before publishing. It’s also important to publish on a regular basis, you want people to see that your website is “alive” and not “stagnant”.

6. Set a plan and goal

Once you’ve researched your competition, set a goal for how much traffic you want to generate and what kind of ranking you want your website to achieve. Then, create a plan to reach that goal.

7. Optimise your website for search engines

Your website may be beautiful, but if it’s not optimised for search engines, it won’t rank high in search results and you’ll miss out on valuable traffic.


To optimise your website you need to do some keyword research and use those keywords throughout your website. Furthermore, you’ll need to optimise the images and build backlinks.

8. Promote your website

Once your website is live on the Internet, the next step is to promote your website. This can be done in many ways depending on your strategy, but some of the most common methods can be through social media, pay-per-click advertising and email marketing.

9. Analyse your website traffic

Assuming you’ve already built your website, the next step is to analyse your website traffic. This will help you understand who is visiting your site, how they found you, and what they’re interested in. More importantly, it’ll help you understand if the plan you set is working towards your goal or if it requires amendments.

10. Make changes to your website

Once you’ve analysed your website traffic, you can start making changes to your website to improve user experience. Some common changes can be improving your website’s design, adding more content or deleting some pages, and updating themes and plugins.


Creating a new website doesn’t have to be an intimidating process. By following the 10 steps outlined in this article, you can create your own custom website quickly and easily.
