    Any advice on creating a website for the first time?

    I have found a domain name I would like to use and have heard good things about HostGator, but I want to get everyone's opinion about creating a successful first website.

    Hi, Torrs13;

    My name is Eustacie. Hope you're having a good day/night.

    I thought I'd try to answer your question. Here I go.

    You question can mean several things. It's not clear whether you'd like to create the website from scratch, and you'd like to know how to code it: using HTML, or WYSIWYG. I not, and you don't know HTML, (hypertext markup language), someone would have to build it for you, or you can buy a template on the web.

    On the other hand, it seems you'd like to get a website to do business on the internet. On the website, you can sell physical products, or digital, like eBooks/software, deliverable by download.

    The other template you can use is a blog. No coding, just set up and go.

    Furthermore, when your website is set up, you'd have to promote it. and that's about 95% of the work. Countless eBooks have been written on the subject.

    In my case, I set up my first website to sell an eBook I wrote. That eBook is still being sold.

    I've got an eBook to help you out. Just let me know. It's free.

    - Don't skimp.
    - Make sure it's interactive. (comments, forum, social media)
    - Promote the living heck out of it.
    - Revenue Sources?

    I'd also suggest becoming an LLC, so that way if things go bad, they can't come after your personal assets.
