      In order to launch a website, You need to buy a domain name + hosting space (Windows or Linux based) with min. one data base (MSSQL / MYSQL).

      If you just begin and it is your first page!

      I would definitely recommend that you start with free services. So you have no cost and you can learn how to make money without having to pay as you go if you go to the website.

      The advantages are the following:
      - not paying hosting
      - not paying domain

      When alive, all the basics, then you go to their web sites without the risk that you will lose money!

    Before you do anything, be sure you work with a designer who knows something about SEO. I've seen some absolutely beautiful websites put together that never see so much as a single visitor because the designer didn't know a thing about search. You would be amazed at how many web designers don't take the time to build sites that can rank well.

    Whenever I launch a site, here are the things I do:

    1) Keyword research - I go for terms that are searched, but not competitive.  I want to RANK...and I do.  I use Micro Niche Finder, but also look at the first page, using SEO for Firefox, a free plugin that you can do competitive analysis with.  See what it takes to get into the top five, if not the top ten.

    I make sure that I optimize every page for 1-2 of these phrases by making sure they are in the URL (every post/page is named using these keywords).  Also: I only buy Exact Match Domain names, so if my keyword is "Launching a Website," then my domain is, [http://www.launchingawebsite.com] or .org or .net.

    2) Using WordPress exclusively (these sites are SEO monsters!), I copy the ping list from Pingler.com and paste it into my "updates" list under Settings > Writing.  This way, every time I post, that list is pinged...and it pings 105 services (one of the services pings 13 others).

    3) Install the plugins: All in One SEO, Wassup (analytics)...and a few others such as Traffic Geyser, and PingFm's plugin, and some others.

    4) Make sure that the permalinks are set to month and name, and that the date setting is d/m/y for SEO purposes.

    5) Make sure the blog is set to "public" versus "private" when I'm ready, otherwise the blog is hidden from the search engines.

    6) On launch, I'll write a press release and some articles, mass-submit to press release sites and article directories using various tools (you can do this well manually at first).  I make sure that every page has 3-10 articles going to it, depending on the competition.

    7) Social bookmark (without overdoing it).

    8) Submit the RSS feed to about 35 services (using Magic Submitter for 6, 7 and 8).

    9) Begin finding other blogs in that niche, using Comment Hut (or you can just do a search using Google's blog search, or Google Alerts) - then comment away, leaving a trail of backlinks.  A cool thing to do is find ComLuv - enabled blogs, and install that to my blog before commenting.

    I just wrote another hub on that as well.  Doing that has garnered me 1100+ backlinks in about 1.5 months (commenting on blogs).  Using article marketing and Magic Submitter, I have taken the front page of Google for moderately competitive terms, as well as the RSS feed submission (so that others see when I post something new), social bookmarking...

    Hope that helps.  I am totally late for work.  Whoops!

    Building a website is relatively easy, but to get traffic to it is challenging.
    Just take one step at a time.

    I think that you should experiment on a free domain/host first. There's no point wasting money. Go to weebly or whatever. Make a test site and learn, learn, learn smile Good luck :*
