Website Creation

Instant ‘5 Minute’ Website Creation

The biggest problem facing most people is that they aren’t HTML wizards, capable of churning out websites as fast as they can type. When it comes to putting up a website, the ‘geeks’ definitely have an advantage. How can we overcome thatc

The key is to remember that structure and presentation are two different things. Now, I realize I just spoke Greek… ‘Structure’ is the underlying foundation of a website – the ‘glue’ that holds it all together and performs whatever functions you may require.

‘Presentation’, on the other hand, is what the website actually looks like. Smart website programmers attempt as much as possible to separate the foundation of their website from the presentation of the content contained on their website. The ways to do this are beyond this short article – but you can look up ‘CSS’ should you be interested.

Some people turn to ‘turnkey’ website templates, but there are two major problems… unless you know HTML, you can’t modify what you start with, and chances are, it’s going to look like a few thousand other sites. (Of course, with the size of the Internet – that’s not the problem that it might first appear.) Being unable to modify a ‘turnkey’ template to do what you want is a major problem for those who aren’t HTML literate.

So is there a solution to allow non-geeks to put up a website fairly quicklyc

Well, yes and no. For even the method I’m going to describe will require that you know how to FTP software to a web host – and how to ‘CHMOD’ files. Knowing how to create a MySQL database with a CPANEL is also a requirement. Fortunately, there’s a great deal of instructional material on the Internet for these minimum requirements.

Ready for the solutionc One that will allow you to put up a website in a minimum amount of timec It’s a secret so shocking that some of you will start banging your head ala ‘The Three Stooges’.

In a word – Blogging Software. I’m going to detail just one ‘brand’, but what I say can equally be applied to many other blogging packages. I use ‘WordPress’, which is one of the largest and most used of the blogging packages available. It’s also completely free and well supported. New updates seem to appear on a monthly basis – so you don’t ever have to fear for a lack of support.

What does blogging software such as WordPress doc It gives you the underlying foundation of a website – all you have to do is define how you want it to ‘look’ with theme plugins, and type in the content. I’ve actually created a complete website in just half-a-day, and most of that time was spent on the actual content I was adding.

WordPress boasts of their famous “5 Minute Install”, and from experience, I’d have to say that they aren’t far off the mark at all. That is, of course, once you’ve done it a few times. If you know how to create a MySQL database, and know how to FTP files, and CHMOD them – then you should have no problems meeting or beating that 5 minute time!

Now – some of the advantages: WordPress comes out of the box as fairly good in the SEO department – and the few holes can be quickly patched with a few SEO plugins. In the Blogging Software world – plugins are just bits of code that you upload to a special directory – ‘turn them on’, and they begin to add some new or different feature or functionality to your basic website.

In other words – no need to learn HTML, or, in this case, PHP – since any feature or function you can think of has already been desired and programmed by someone else. All you need to do is to search Google for the WordPress plugin you want.

Another advantage for using Blogging software – Search engines seem to treat ’em differently. I was used to waiting weeks and months for my hand-coded websites to be indexed after submitting them. But due to the time-sensitive nature of Blogs – search engines seem to put blogs ahead of ordinary websites. Maybe it’s just my imagination – but Google had my last WordPress driven website indexed the same day – and I started getting traffic from Google within the next few days.

You may wonder if two WordPress driven websites might look too similar – certainly it’s a possibility if they’re both using the same ‘theme’ – but the chances are remote. I use a specific ‘Semiologic’ theme for my website – and I’ve never run across another website using that theme – although I know that there must be several hundred others out there.

Since Blogging software is, by default, a “content management system”, making changes to your website is no more difficult than going to your website and ‘logging in’. Then you merely type new content, rearrange the presentation, add new features by uploading a new plugin, etc. I’ve hand-coded complete websites, and let me tell you, the difference in difficulty is like ‘night & day’. Keeping up a website run on blogging software is incredibly easy!

For the more advanced webmasters – you can easily integrate blogging software with adtrackers, autoresponders, and any other software tools you require.

Give it a try!

  1. Website creation?
    I would like to host a free website, with details about my business. how can i link sponserers to the website, so tht each time an AD banner is clicked it is some revenue for me is generated. And can i also earn off the links in my website(not AD’s) that a user will click?

  2. What is the best website creation out there?
    I want to know the best website creation program. I don’t want it to be free. Someone please tell me the best website creation program there is.

  3. What is the best website that offers your own website creation?
    Im looking for a site to create a website but i dont want to pay i was wondering if anyone knows whats the best one to use and i would prefer one that you canuse html creation to create it more complex if you know what i mean? thanks.

  4. The best website creation software in my opinion also happens to be the quickest, inexpensive, and helps you to set-up a professional website that looks like it cost upwards of $8000. Furthermore, all of this costs $9.75/mo.

    The solution I’m talking about is online website building where you choose the designs, colors, etc. because they have already done all the work so you can create an attractive website online without messing with HTML scripts, http://ftp., etc. All you would need is a website browser like Internet Explorer or Safari (for Mac fans) which you already have since you are reading this, right? For example, http://www.gobuildwebsite.com offers websites that look like they cost $5000 but since you simply choose the designs and templates you like online, it costs only $9.75/mo and that includes everything needed to get started such as a new domain name, web hosting fee, domain-related email accounts, etc.

    For $23.75/mo., you can even sell your own products online with secure PayPal checkout that can be set-up at no cost by going to Paypal.com and setting up a basic merchant account. This is by far the fastest way to go online with a professional looking website that has flash special effects, background music, web contact forms that send the message to email address of your choice (this alone will save hours of work with scripting). Good Luck!

  5. You can go to Google Pages at pages.google.com. You can make your site there, it’s easy. (you would need to sign up)

    For the AD banners and the links, go to Google Advertising….
    Google Adsense=banners
    Google Adwords=links

    i want a website created for my personal business use. I also need to find a website/service/person/entity that will create this website and whatever i need on this website for a reasonable price. Any Suggestions
    I live in Jamaica. So I dnt really know how we would work that out.

  9. Pay me to do it ;p

    You can make a website in almost any Microsoft
    program now, from Word to Publisher. I wouldn’t
    recommend using any of them personally, but you
    can. Flash, Dreamweaver, and scripting are all popular
    choices for professional’s, and hobbyiest alike. Scripting
    in HTML is pretty easy, and you can achieve alot, if you
    don’t fancy scripting yourself pay somebody to script for
    you.

    Where abouts are you?
