Create a website yourself in 6 easy steps

1

Make a plan

Before you dive into the design of your website, you should lay out a plan. Formulating clear goals will simplify the process of creating your own website and help you make the right choices.

2

Choose a website builder

Some website builders offer more features than others, so it's important to choose one that's right for your project. Make sure it fits your skill level, too.

3

Pick a domain

The domain is your unique address on the internet. So, take your time when making your choice and consider different domain endings.

4

Define the design

Start with a template that matches the style and setup you’re looking for. Later, you can customise the design template further. Every design decision should have a clear purpose.

5

Create content

Add personality to your website by creating content. This includes informative and motivating texts, as well as images. You can create them yourself or choose from the large collection that comes with the IONOS website builder.

6

Make your website more visible

Once your website has been published, you can make sure it gets displayed by Google and other search engines. The IONOS website builder can help with this too.

Creating your own website – FAQ

With a Website Builder, you can design a compelling website yourself without any prior HTML or CSS knowledge. Instead of having to grapple with technical intricacies, you can focus entirely on the design and content of your website. The Website Builder provides a range of tools with which you can easily reach high-end results.

However, there are two further solutions that are just as well suited to beginners:

  • WordPress hosting: The content management system WordPress is popular due to its modular set up and intuitive use.
  • Website design service: Collaborate with IONOS design experts to set up a professional website while saving time.

Web design should always follow a clear goal. That’s why it’s a good idea to think about what you want to achieve with your website and adapt the design to that goal. A good rule of thumb is the popular saying ‘Less is more’. Don’t overwhelm site visitors with too many items and functions that serve no use. A clear website structure is more important than unusual features.

A design template is a great way to get started. Here, all key elements are already integrated. But don’t entirely rely on the template either. Customise your website and adapt it to your vision. For this, you can browse current web design trends. Just remember to not add elements that you won’t be using.

Website solutions from IONOS include an SSL certificate as standard, which secures data transfers to website visitors. Further measures on your website are often already set up, so that you won’t forget the important stuff.

Smaller web projects need to also comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when processing data from the EU. If you are creating your own website, make sure you note down the following points:

  • Privacy policy: Keep a legally compliant privacy policy on an easy-to-find sub-page of your website.
  • Legal disclaimer: While legal notices are not a requirement in the UK, they should be included if you are selling products or services via your site.
  • Cookie banners: A good cookie banner provides information and gives website users clear options.
  • Social media plugins : Set up links to Facebook or X in a way that users can decide for themselves whether their data should be transmitted.
  • Analysis tools: As standard, tools like Google Analytics collect personal data. You have the option to configure the tools to make them GDPR compliant.
  • Contract for data processing: If another company manages personal data of third parties on your behalf, you must finalise a contract for data processing. This applies, for example, to the hosting provider or analytics tools.

The privacy policy, cookie policy, and privacy settings are already in place with IONOS website solutions! The somewhat technically complex cookie banner is even ready-made, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Our experts will also be happy to provide personal support and answer any questions surrounding data protection.
