 What do you really need to go into business on the internet?

If you plan to start your own business on the internet, one thing you will need is a website. But that doesn't mean you have to go to an expensive web developer in order to have them build it for you or pay an eye-watering sum. You can learn how to build a website all by yourself for much less than any professional would charge!

That's why we've put together this blog post, which explains in detail what exactly can be done with websites on the web and includes links and resources that can help get your started on building your own webpage without having a real background in coding.

With any luck, this will be your first step to building a business online without having to spend lots of hard earned cash.

So let's get started and learn how you can build an effective website on the internet!
The first thing we need to do is decide what we want our website to be about. You can find loads of great tips in this post on building your ideal website here , which collects together all the best advice from Econsultancy on what should be included in the perfect homepage, so read that article before we go further. But if you're looking for some more general advice (without paying a lot of money) then check out these insights on how to write compelling content .

In order to get your website noticed on the web, though, you'll need to earn some 'link juice' (google's way of saying 'praise'). By getting other websites online to link to yours, you're telling Google that your website is popular and important, and it's more likely to appear higher in people's searches and therefore get more traffic.

Some websites will naturally want to link to you if they think your material is good enough. But we can do our best by adding as many relevant links as possible from our own site (more on this in a later post). In addition, we can include some simple social signals. This article gives an easy explanation of how this works.

But the most important thing, aside from coming up with a great product or service. is to make sure you've got a good name (aka your domain name). We've put together a list of the best domain names for your business here .

Then you'll need a hosting package. If you're not sure what to look for, we have an article that goes through everything you need to know about hosting. Alternatively, if you want quick tips on choosing the right package , then check out these insights on hosting packages for beginners .

It's also worth getting SSL certificates , as this will allow website visitors to see that their details are safe with your website.

In addition to these steps, there are a number of other things you can do to give your website an edge over your competitors. We've put together a list of links and resources for how to get better rankings here . But remember, the more relevant content you do, the better quality backlinks you can earn and therefore help increase traffic to your site !
