[Image: how-to-create-a-website.jpg]

Internet has come a long way over the past decade. Once restricted to computers, it is now the heart and soul of smartphones, tablets, and even made its way to connected devices such as smart home speakers, smart TVs, and more. Fast forward today, and a lot of people look up for things online for information, and before buying products or services. Be it for individuals or small businesses, having a website has become more important than ever.

One of the excuses people give for not having a website is that it is too expensive and complicated to setup. Domain and web hosting providers understand that, and they have come up with easy to use website building tools, allowing anyone to quickly have their website up and running in no time. Companies like BigRock, Hostgator and GoDaddy are popular in the domain and web hosting space, and today, we will talk about GoDaddy’s easy to use Website Builder tool.

What all you need for creating your website?
Step One: First and foremost, you need to think of a domain name. It could be anything like your name or the name of your business, followed by the suffix .com, .net, .in,, and more. For instance, you can have something like or or, and much more.

Registering a domain can set you back anywhere between Rs 99 a year (plus taxes) to Rs 999 (plus taxes) and more. Also, the domain name is valid for one year, and you will have to renew it every year. If you don’t want a customized domain, you can go with the default one, which could be something like, which is free of cost.

How to setup a website on GoDaddy
Step Two: The process is very simple. Head over to and click on sign-in on the top right corner, and click on “Create my Account” to sign up. Enter your details, such as email address, user ID, password and a 4-digit pin.

Next, click on ‘Start for Free’ followed by entering a few details – like what your site is about, and what would you like your site to be called. Once these details are entered, click on get started.
