Creating a website or blog is the easiest way to share your ideas and expertise with the world.
And if you want to, you can use it to promote your business—or make money straight from your website.
Before having the thought of creating a website you need to put some basic things into consideration.Firstly you need to have content for your website, the appropriate design for your audience and how you would drive traffic into your site.
Now straight to the point, There are two ways in which you can make a website:

Content management system is a software application or set of application programs that are used to create and manage digital content.

With WordPress you could create beautiful website as long as you know your onions.
In order to create a website you will need two essential package which are- hosting space and a domain name.
To get a domain name, go to Namecheap and get Registered.
A domain name is similar to an address in-fact its your website address .eg www.yourdomainname.com.
Hosting is required keeping the content of your website.
With namecheap you would need to pay a sum of $20 to secure a domain name and hosting plan which is about 6500NGN to 7000NGN depending on your bank exchange rate.
After you’ve made a purchase of your domain and hosting you would be sent an email with login details to the mail you used in registering your namecheap account
