How to Set up a website at very low cost

For individual, a small company, or just for being cool to have a website? I'll show you how you can do that at a very low price. Most organization spend 20,000 - 30,000 ($400 - $500 USD) for getting a domain name, hosting package and some man power. If your organization is earning $100,100 USD or more then its fine to spend for hosting and everything. But, if you're just and individual who just want to have a blog, website or just anything that you want to say, spending that much of amount is not advisable. Just the other day my friend asked me "how much did you spend for your website?" Well, I told him I spend 4000 - 6000 ($100 USD) per year (after getting the best deal - unlimited - from a good host). Then, he asked can you get it cheaper than that? I thought for a while then I remember the good old days of blogger.com and the .co.cc domains. I recalled how I was happily customizing my blogger and at the same time be proud of the custom .co.cc domain. But, suddenly .co.cc shut down without any warning. Then, I tried the .tk and many other, but leaving me in fear that one day they might be like .co.cc. That's how I finally bought a domain and a hosting plan (well because I want more than just a blogger customization).

Finally, I told my friend that you can go as cheap as 100 - 700 ($2 - $10 USD) per year if you don't need much of customization. So, here today, I'll show you how to set up a cheap website for just 100 - 700 ($2 - $10 USD) per year. You might be wondering why the 100 - 700 ($2 - $10 USD)range? Well, firstly you need to buy a top level domain (.com, .org, .info etc). Normally .com cost are about 600 ($10) per year, while others like .info cost just a 100 ($2). Now why a top level domain name? As I've said before how .co.cc a free domain service shut down without notice, but a top level domain will stay as long as you renew it every year (or buy it for 10 years at lower cost). So go ahead and buy a domain name first. You can get lots of registrar out there, but I'd recommend Godaddy.com. Once you get a domain of your choice then head to Blogger.com sign in with your Google account if you have one (or create a free Google account). Now, since Google has a detailed help of how to create your blog, I'll just point you to that place. You can visit support.google.com/blogger/ for more information on how to create a blog.

For individual, a small company, or just for being cool to have a website? I’ll show you how you can do that at a very low price.

So, you've created a blog, how about customizing your blog? Apart from blog post, blogger also allows pages. What are pages? Technically, both pages and blog post are nothing but webpages. The difference is that pages are static. While blog post are listed by date created, so every blog will appear in the home section listed with the newest first. You could have an About Me page, a Contact page aside from the Home page. Again, I'll not go into the detail process of creating a page but you can check at Google's help I mentioned earlier.

Another option that you can customize is you blog layout/looks. You can do that by using the template designer inside blogger itself, or if you're an HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc. expert, you might want to use the edit html option. Just one note, always back up before you make changes to the template. If you are eager to learn HTML/CSS/JavaScript etc then try www.w3schools.com/.

The last customization that you can do on Blogger is a custom domain (also, this is the only customization that require you to spend some money). So, if you are willing to spend a few buck go ahead and register a domain name. Earlier I've mentioned that you can register your domain name on any registrar like Godaddy.com. After registration, you can add your custom domain to your blog so that your blog now have an address www.yoursite.com instead of yourname.blogspot.com. Again, for details of how to do that please check support.google.com/blogger. After you've added custom domain at blogger.com you'll also need to change some settings at the registrar level (example at Godaddy.com). Hence, login to your domain settings and add the required CNAME as per the instruction given by blogger. Normally, the first CNAME is "www" and points to "ghs.google.com" the second one will be different for each blog, so check carefully in the location where you add your custom domain at Blogger.com.

There are other things you can do on your blog. Did you know that you can make money from your blog? If your blog is popular enough, you can join Google ad-sense programme and earn money from your blog. If you're not good at HTML, CSS etc., there are lots of cool Blogger template, so just Google around the free templates and select the best looking ones.

Blogger has some limits like the number of blogs, storage space, but there is an option for space storage. By upgrading your account to Google+ profile will increase your storage space up to 15 GB (Shared with Google Drive, Gmail, Google+).
