There is a few things you should know before building a website. Obviously you should know the type of business that you’re wanting to start and some of the goals of that business. Is it for profit, is it for charity, is it for fun. The second thing you want to think about is who is going to be viewing this website? Is it going to be a huge deal with thousands of people visiting every day? Or is it just for you and your friends? Do you know what the domain name is going to be or the.com name? Have you checked to see if it’s available? Once you’ve gotten that far you’re ready to take the plunge.
