What Skill Do I Need? If you are thinking about creating a website ( especially if it’s for business/money making), you may be curious or even intimidated by what you have to learn. Here are some skills and attributes that will come in handy
A basic of Understand of Web Programming For running a website you don’t need to become an expert programmer to have successful website, but you should learn the basics of html.
People underestimate the importance of this attribute. Anyone can throw up content and call it a website or a blog, but when it come to effective marketing and building traffic, you have to dig deep and get in touch with your creative side. Some will argue creativeness cant be learned because it’s a talent, that’s true to an extent but I believe you can improve you creativity, especially if you study other successful webmasters and bloggers. Dare to be different
Good Writing Skills The skill is especially important if you want to make money the way I do. My writing has improved tremendously over the years. Let’s take writing for example 5 years ago I may have titled a blog post about apple features something simple like “i-phone features”. Today, I would take more time with that title and maybe craft something more attention-grabbing like, “Apple i-phone Amazing and Wondering Technology Features”.
See How the 2 nd title “Apple i-phone Amazing and Wondering Technology Features “is much more interesting and eye-catching? This is something I learned over time by studying other successful webmaster whose writing I admired. One headline can be the difference between hundreds and thousands of visits.

Domain & Hosting (First Step) Before we get started you should understand that Every website must two things 1) A domain name 2) A web host
Domain Names The domain name is the address of your website (yoursite.com) and the web host is the company that allows you to publish your pages to the Internet, create email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org) and additional features like chat room, forums, shopping carts, feedback form email@example.com
Webhosting A webhost is the company that provides the server space for your web pages and what ever files you need for your website. You will be uploading your websites files to your host. This is how a website become visible on the Internet.
Type Of Web hosting Free web hosting service Shared web hosting service Reseller web hosting Dedicated hosting service Managed hosting service Unlimited Hosting Service
Free web hosting service Offered by different companies with limited services, sometimes supported by advertisements, and often limited when compared to paid hosting.
Shared Web hosting One's website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. The features available with this type of service can be quite extensive. A shared website may be hosted with a reseller.
Reseller web hosting Allows clients to become web hosts themselves. Resellers could function, for individual domains, under any combination of these listed types of hosting, depending on who they are affiliated with as a reseller. Resellers' accounts may vary tremendously in size: they may have their own virtual dedicated server to a colocated server. Many resellers provide a nearly identical service to their provider's shared hosting plan and provide the technical support themselves
Dedicated hosting service The user gets his or her own Web server and gains full control over it (user has root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows); however, the user typically does not own the server. Another type of Dedicated hosting is Self-Managed or Unmanaged. This is usually the least expensive for Dedicated plans. The user has full administrative access to the server, which means the client is responsible for the security and maintenance of his own dedicated server
Managed hosting service The user gets his or her own Web server but is not usually allowed full control over it (user is denied root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows); however, they are allowed to manage their data via FTP or other remote management tools. The user is disallowed full control so that the provider can guarantee quality of service by not allowing the user to modify the server or potentially create configuration problems. The user typically does not own the server. The server is leased to the client.
Unlimited Hosting Service Don’t buy hosting from the companies who claim they will give u unlimited space, bandwidth, and all other resources at cost of 3 -4 $ per month. Like ixwebhosting.com
Specific Type of hosting Some specific types of hosting provided by web host service providers: File hosting service: hosts files, not web pages (rapidshare.com) Image hosting service (tinypic.com) Video hosting service (youtube.com Blog hosting service (blogger.com)
