There are multiple steps involved to achieve  this. Some of the basic steps are:-

1. Web Design:

2. Domain Name Registration:

3. Web Hosting:

4. Site Promotion:

5. Site Maintenance:

  1. Web Design: The process of designing web pages, web sites, web applications or multimedia for the Web may utilize multiple disciplines, such as animation, authoring, communication design, corporate identity, graphic design, human-computer interaction, information architecture, interaction design, marketing, photography, search engine optimization and typography.

The intent of web design is to create a web site—a collection of electronic documents and applications that reside on a web server/servers and present content and interactive features/interfaces to the end user in form of Web pages once requested. Such elements as text, bit-mapped images (GIFs, JPEGs) and forms can be placed on the page using HTML/XHTML/XML tags. Displaying more complex media (vector graphics, animations, videos, and sounds) requires plug-ins such as Adobe Flash, QuickTime, Java run-time environment, etc. Plugins are also embedded into web page by using HTML/XHTML tags.

Multiple technologies to be used for web designing as:

·         Markup languages (such as HTML, XHTML and XML)

·         Style sheet languages (such as CSS and XSL)

·         Client-side scripting (such as JavaScript)

·         Server-side scripting (such as PHP and ASP)

·         Database technologies (such as MySQL and PostgreSQL)

·         Multimedia technologies (such as Flash and Silverlight)


Web pages and web sites can be static pages, or can be programmed to be dynamic pages that automatically adapt content or visual appearance depending on a variety of factors, such as input from the end-user, input from the Webmaster or changes in the computing environment (such as the site's associated database having been modified).

For beginner /standard Level Users:  Designing a web page was not so easy until I found some very nice stuff which I wanted to mention.

There are 100s of free template based online tools with drag and drop features. With a few clicks you can build your own website with professional touch. I would like to mention few online tools like:


1.       http://www.weebly.com

2.       http://www.webs.com

3.       http://www.wix.com

4.       http://www.officelive.com/en-us/free-website

5.       http://sites.google.com

And many more

The above companies also provides you the web hosting but with a term of using their name as sub-domain.

After creating your website using these online tools, the next step comes to give them the URL of your choice which is not a free affair but you have to spend a small amount for that.  You need to register a domain for that of your choice.

 For advanced users, who have knowledge of web designing, can create their Web-pages and proceed to the next steps for their domain registration and website hosting.
