Basics guide to building a website
First steps to create your website
To create a website you must know what you want to upload to the network: Create an online store, an informative website about your services, a blog or a gallery of your work. It is important since your idea is the engine that will give life to your web project and will determine the growth of your project.
Virtual store. ecommerce or virtual stores have become very popular and it is where more competition has been seen in recent years regarding development. Today anyone has the opportunity to start a web sales system allowing a series of opportunities in the social, labor and economic sphere. You can have physical and digital services or products.
Blogs . Blogs comprise one of the most informative databases, since it is the purest act of unfolding personal, educational and commercial knowledge. We currently find informative news and information blogs about different disciplines.
Online communities . Social networks marked a milestone in the way we interact with our peers and today they are very popular as methods of establishing and maintaining ties. The truth is that these platforms are here to stay and their potential determines our way of communication. The main characteristic is the horizontality of the communication, despite the fact that different platforms can assign privileges depending on the reason. Examples of these are: Facebook, Gmail, WhatsApp, Forums, Chats.
Once you are clear about the reason for your website, you must register your domain , which will be the name or address with which they will find your project on the internet, in our case it is mox.cl .
Thousands of domains are registered every day, therefore, it is possible that your domain is already registered and it is necessary to rethink the name. Ideally, you have several potential names to stay with the domain that best suits you.
There are many companies that can register your domain, at MOX we have the best registration and renewal prices. To register your domain you must:
1. Verify that your domain is available
2. Choose the extension that you like (.COM, .NET, .ORG, .NINJA, etc.)
3. Complete the order. (If you don't have an account you can still register for free)
If you want to obtain a national extension (.CL, .AR, etc.) it is necessary to do it in the NIC corresponding to your country. In the case of Chile, you must register at www.nic.cl, because the extension concession (.CL) is owned by the University of Chile.
