Step by Step Build A Website
1st Step: Choose Website Platform
In first we have to choose Platfrom(on which we built our website)
What do I mean by “platform”?
Well, In last 2000 when We started with web development, most sites were built using HTML(code), CSS and even Flash. These took a lot of time to learn and not easy for a new one.
That’s the main reason most people still think creating a website from scratch is difficult or requires a lot of coding and design skills – but that’s no longer now true!
In 2003, content management systems (CMS) like WordPress,Magento,OpenCart,Drupal made easy creating a website and accessible to everyone(no need hard coding).
To say in simple a Content Management System(CMS) (or website building platform) is a user-friendly platform for building websites and managing your own online content, instead of using hard codes pages.
