Knowing what the steps are will give you the confidence to build one and more later down the road. Each successive website that you build you will learn more on how best to optimize it.
Not knowing this information will make you unaware of the potential that website creation has. Especially if you go into business and expect to earn money from your websites.
By helping others with your website you will be helping yourself at the same time. Taking on the mindset of solving other peoples problems on your website will allow you to be successful in so many ways.
Otherwise if the information on your website is obsolete or not meaningful no one will return to your site. You will have nothing to offer and people will just not return to your site.
By knowing that you’ve helped people along with their problems will make you feel good that you have helped someone else. Whether or not that turns into a monetary gain it really doesn’t matter. Business traits will turn towards the good when you start helping enough people enrich their lives.

Since the onset of the internet there has been a plethora of education scripts to help people create their own websites. From paid documentation to free visual aids from YouTube, all the information to build a website is yours for the taking.
Action Steps to take.
Step 1. Decide on how you want to build your website. You can get a website building program and follow the directions.
You can learn a programming language coupled with HTML code.
Hire a professional to build your website. Make sure you have a lot of money on this option.
Learn WordPress. The easiest and most economical way to build your website.
Step 2. Now I’m sure at this point you have decided to use WordPress as your website builder. You already have the domain name purchased, located a host provider and now installing WordPress on your site will be a breeze.
Step 3. There’s one important step that you need to take before the actual installation of WordPress can take place. When you selected your hosting company one of the information pieces that you received was a DNS name. You need to take this DNS name and go back to the domain registrar where you registered your domain and update it now. Without a DNS name your host provider software will not be able to equate the domain name with its hosting capabilities.
The DNS name issue may seem a bit complicated but not really. Once you know the DNS name of your hosting company then you can use that for all the domain names that you register. This is a necessary thing to do otherwise strange complications will start to appear.
Once you get this done you are going to feel so confident about yourself about building websites, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start earlier.
The next chapter will go into the actual installation of WordPress.
