Three important things to consider when deciding to own a website.

In this article, I'm going to show you three important things that you must take into account whenever you want to own a website regardless of whether it is a content management system (CMS) based website or otherwise.

It is good to look at the purpose of owning a website, environment and web technology. Now Let's look at these points one by one.

PURPOSE OF A WEBSITE.

There are different types of websites with different purposes depending on the intended audience. If you search carefully you will find that there are websites that aim to sell products, entertain or even provide useful information, and if you look at these websites you will see how they fit important content and how they go with the time, so to own a website, you must consider the purpose. For example, if you intend to educate the community then do so, and you can do various things related to it.

The importance of having a purpose is to be able to know how to run your website and manage it daily.

ENVIRONMENT.

The environment is something to consider when you want to own a website, and it's good to look for an influential environment that will allow you to confirm your purpose, for example, prepare an office environment and have the essentials such as tables, chairs and computers.

Apart from that, it's also important to consider other environmental factors such as infrastructures and the most widely used language to the intended audience.

Try to ask yourself this, if your website deals with selling products online, how do you set the conditions for how to send a product to a customer, what payment method the customer will use, and if there is no such payment method, what decisions should you make to reach your goal?

Try to ask yourself about language, language is also important in any business if your client's speak language like yours then it's really important because it makes you enjoy communication, so the website is like a branded store and the manager is you and you must explain the product in a language which the customer will easily understand.

The importance of considering the environment is, when you look at the environment then you know who you are doing business with and how to set yourself up for it.


HOW ARE YOU GOING TO BUILD IT.

When you want to own a website you must consider the way or how you are going to build your website. Every day web technology grows and evolves over time, the ultimate goal of web technology is to find a simpler and faster way to solve problems related to websites.

So far there are three ways used to create a website.

By using the content management system(CMS).
A content management system(CMS) is a software tool that allows you to create, edit, and publish web contents, the content management system has been developed to simplify the task of developing and managing websites, if you own a computer then you will be able to create your own website without requiring a skilled web developer and it will not cost more than $15 to get a domain and SSL certificate, at which point you will use a completely free server to host your website.

By using Web builder.
web builders are software that helps you build a website more quickly, you don't need any coding skills to build a website because they include a drag and drop editor that allows you to create pages and create a beautiful layout. There are two types of website builders which are offline website builders such as Xara Web Designer 9 and online website builder such as Wix.

I will not discuss the pros and cons here because, those platforms have their own rules on payment and performance, but the time issue can be a little daunting if you encounter an inexperienced developer.

Through these three options, you can choose one way you can afford and reach your goal.
