Register a domain name
Your domain name serves as the address of your blog or website when people search it on the web. It’s like your home on the internet. Most websites use the name of their business as their domain name. You are lucky if your domain has not yet been registered nowadays. Most attractive single word domains have already been registered. So, if your domain is already taken, you can combine 2 or 3 words related to your business name, [or even has no relationship at all] then find out if it is still available for registration.
Rent a web hosting service
A web hosting service is actually renting a computer space and its related technologies that is connected on the web. Web hosting companies offer wide range of choices related to your needed computer disk space and bandwidth which determines how many visits per unit of time your website can handle. Web hosting providers usually offer the space, but you have to do the techy thing yourself. There are also third-party service providers that offer to handle the webhost itself and maintain it for the owner like what we do at hostwifi.com. Web hosting companies vary also in technologies installed in them. The most popular technologies for web hosting are cPanel and Plesk.
