Before getting started with how to make money from website, first we learn how to create a site as one can’t earn money without having a shop.. 😀
How to create a website
If you are technically sound and familiar with PHP, .NET or other website developing and designing tools, you can develop it easily. But if you are not known to these, then you should hire a developer and designer to have an e-commerce or even a basic portal.
But if you can spend a little time, then you can start a blog easily. Blogger and WordPress are the two platforms which are user friendly and creating website with these is quite easy. However I’d recommend you to go with wordpress as it has got beautiful themes and give lovely look to the site.
Just register a domain name and host it to the server. After that you can go host the website with wordpress platform and have a professional look blog.
