What is required in order to create a website?
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the address of your website on the internet, where people can visit it online.
Our website’s domain name, for example, is amitywebsitedesign.com
When you purchase a domain name from a domain host, you gain ownership of it for the duration of one year. You can register a domain name for a period up to 10 years. To keep ownership of your domain name you have to renew it every year. Domain renewal cost around $15 on average for .com domains depending on your domain host.
If the domain name expires and you do not renew it it becomes available for registration and anybody can register it.
What is website hosting and why do i need it?
Web hosting is a service that provides storage for all of your website’s files.
All your website files are stored on a special computer called a “server”. This computer’s purpose is to store your website files and to display them to website visitors when they visit your website’s domain name.
These computers or “servers” are owned by companies that rent them to you and they charge you for this service on a monthly or a yearly basis. When you buy a hosting package, you’re renting space on a real server to store all of the files and data for your website.
Website hosting pricing can range anywhere from $10 per month up to $1000+ per month for large websites.

What is search engine optimization (SEO)?
SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It’s the practice of increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure to your brand, through non-paid (also known as “organic”) search engine results.
Despite the acronym, SEO is as much about people as it is about search engines themselves. It’s about understanding what people are searching for online, the answers they are seeking, the words they’re using, and the type of content they wish to consume. Knowing the answers to these questions will allow you to connect to the people who are searching online for the solutions you offer.
I keep seeing the term "responsive web design". What does this mean?
When a website is responsive, the layout and/or content responds or adapts based on the size of screen they are presented on.
A responsive website automatically changes to fit the device you’re reading it on.
