Are you planning to design a website on your own? It may sound difficult, but it's pretty simple if you know how to design the web that Cánh Cam guides you below. With just only 6 steps, you will easily deploy all the essential elements of a website, suitable for those who are new to web design.
An effective website is when it attracts readers in both content and form. If a website doesn't have a design impression, it's certainly not clear that the content won't be expressed either. Today, we're going to show you how to design a simple but effective website through the following 6 steps:
Step 1: Find a reputable web hosting and register a domain
Before joining into the website design, you should look for reputable hosting for sales/rent provider for your new website. Without a web server, the readers certainly cannot access the site.
Many people make the mistake of starting to design right away with a cheap host without regard for quality. Not every provider ensures that the host is trustworthy, so you should choose from the top web hosts.
A high-quality web hosting provider has these criteria:
- Top leading web hosts available
- Customer care priority
- Guides for problem solving
- Multiple flatforms support
- Extra features to make use simpler
The next thing you need to do is to have a domain name. A domain name is the name and address of your website, so that people can access to the web. Currently, there are many hosting providers that come with domain names, so take a close look to create the right domain name, both saving the cost of website design and getting good quality.
Step 2: Choose the platform to design the website
Once you select the right hosting and domain for yourself, the next thing to do is to choose a platform to support web design. The first comes up is WordPress platform, which is a popular one today, accounting for 30% of the world's share. WordPress offers you free technical things, as well as full control over the website interface. But you need to pay extra to use some additional features such as storage, security, etc.
Also, if you want to get a more professional website then try Joomla. This software will help you create more complex websites, security feature is available, and it optimizes website performance effectively, much better than WordPress.
At the later part of the article, we'll show you how to design the web on today's popular platform, WordPress. WordPress web design tool will be simpler and faster to help you learn and perfect your new website.
Step 3: Install the necessary tools
First, you need to install WordPress and some computer support tools. You need to choose a theme that fits your design ideas to be the main interface for the website.
In WordPress, there are multiple themes for you to choose from, but we recommend that you use free themes for the beginning. Or you can also use the themes in WordPress library, but please choose a theme that gets a lot of positive feedback from users to avoid problems later when using. Once you have selected the right theme for you, install and activate it.
To design the web quickly, you should use the tools in WordPress page builder plugin. It’s simple to use, but it will take a lot of time and effort to build a good-looking website.
On WordPress there are many plugin builders, Beaver Builder will be the right choice for those who are new to WordPress. Beaver Builder has a lot of useful features that are easy to use. You can use the available elements to add to the site, with the simple operation of dragging down and dropping down the position you need to add. You can then also consider adjusting the above factors to make the site looks better.
Step 4: Mockup sketching for web interface
We give you guidance for available features in the above steps, this step you will need the creativity. After you have a WordPress website with the selected theme and plugin builder, you need to draw the website interface.
It's called “Mockup”. It's not necessary to draw all details, but it's important to have enough content that you want to show. Mockup will be used as a reference image for you to go into the official website design. You can edit it several times until you are satisfied with the design layout of the website.
In addition, there are modern software sets to help you create Mockups on your computer without using paper. But it will take a long time for you to get acquainted and master the above tools.
Step 5: Build a prototype website
Then, create a prototype for the website. It's about moving from mockup to the digital. Since you already have a good website builder, simply open it with WordPress editor, add some elements to the website, arrange so that it appears as in the mockups that you planned.
The most important thing is to put up a page so that the prototype of the website works and get all the elements on your original mockup. After the prototype, you'll focus on every smaller detail related to the page, editing the original design of the site.
You don't need to worry when your Mockup is different when switching to a prototype. The difference there is absolutely no problem, moreover, the prototype does not need to be the same as a complete site that you have planned before.
Remember, don't worry about text on the web. To build prototype faster and more efficiently, use text placeholders and stock images to fill in the blanks. Once you've designed the interface, it's not too late for you to add content instead.
Step 6: Check for mobile friendliness
The last step, make sure your website will also look complete when used on a smartphone platform. It's essential to design your web with small resolution, which will keep visitors to your web longer when using mobile devices.
However, you don't need to worry much because most WordPress page builders have mobile support from the beginning. Your website design has been automatically adjusted accordingly on your phone.
If you're still confused, you can also try to check if there's a problem with two ways. One is that you can use your phone to access it. The second is to use Chrome's Devtools, which is more effective because you can choose the version of the resolution you want to browse the website.
If something else goes wrong, go back to step 5, to fix it in a timely manner. After everything has been adjusted and completed, be ready for the beautiful website created by your own.
2. Notes when design website
The practical website with useful content will attract customers to the site and motivate them to voluntarily take the necessary steps to achieve the main purposes of the site. To do this, the business needs to optimize both the content and form of the content presentation (fonts, images and writing layout).
For a sales web, images and layouts must be able to adapt to all interfaces: computer, phone, tablets, etc. to increase the diversity and experience of users.
Make sure the links work well and also the website can work well on both phones and desktops by double-checking each page.
Take a close look at the title tags and paragraphs describing the content of each page. The order of heading tags can also affect the performance and popularity of the site on the search engine bar.
