How to Register a Website in 4 Steps and Make Money
Step 1: Domain Name
Find a reputable domain registrar that has easy to follow instructions on how to register a website. Make sure that they have been in business for a reasonable period of time. In the next ten years, there will be more than 500 million domains registered globally. You will want a piece of that action, right from the start. I recommend that you choose a registrar that has an affiliate program that pays you commissions. This way, you can place content and a link on your own website that encourages others to register their domain names through you. Do some keyword research before deciding on your domain name. I recommend that you choose a two or three long tail keyword phrase that people would type into a search engine to find what your business provides. From that solid foundation, you will position your website address to help your online presence and ranking in the search engines.
Step 2: Email Accounts
Does your domain registrar include email accounts when you register your domain name? Make sure they do. There are many benefits having your own separate email accounts with your domain name. Branding is a rather obvious reason. I have heard people complain that they already have too many email accounts. Frankly, if you don't have at least one email address, you are missing the boat. Remember, this is an article on how to register a website and make money. Make sure the email accounts are included in the package when you register your domain name.
Step 3: Website Builder
You have options. Many registrars sell you that service. You can also purchase software, costing hundreds of dollars. Then there's the education you will need if you want to build your own website. That costs time and money. You can hire someone to do it. But that would also cost you hundreds, if not more than a thousand dollars. You must consider keyword enriched content, images, graphics, videos, banners, buttons and more! Most people do not have the technical knowledge, nor the keyword research knowledge in order to maximize monetization while building their websites. When you register your domain name, at the very least, make sure the package includes a website builder. There should also be the options of domain forwarding, a parking service, name server options and basic hosting.
Step 4: Basic Hosting and Help with Monetization
It costs money to host your website. You need to consider disk space and bandwidth. Make sure that hosting is part of the package.
When it comes to monetization, you will need to hire experts to help your website index and rank in the search engines, or you can learn on your own. It all costs money and time. Some registrars have affiliates who can help you learn without cost. Again, make sure that comes with the package.
The bottom line is that it will cost you a lot less money by finding a registrar who provides your domain name, email accounts, website builder, hosting and help with monetization all in one package. Those are my instructions on how to register a website in 4 steps and make money.
