How To Build A Website in 2022

Everyone should have their own website. It’s something I’ve always stood by and in this video I’ll be going over everything you need to know about setting up a website from why create a personal website to how to pick a platform & domain and, finally, what to do with it once you have it.

    Hi there, i have a lot of data (currently in a database) and I want to show it on graphs on a web site while being able to write a bit next to them. How should I proceed?

  5. Mr. Chips Draws!

    Not what I was looking for, because I was aiming for tips on a professional website for my business, but still watched it till the end and learned a lot. Thanks.

    How do they make money from just writing. Who's paying you for what, writing?

    For all the overthinkers, this is an excellent video. Thanks for sharing your experiences and also assuring us of the things we DON'T need to worry about when we're starting out!

    I created a site on ghost before realizing that it's not a "website" publisher in the generic sense, it is a blogging platform. And in my anxiousness to create that site I paid for a year, which seemed to be necessary to setup my (already owned) primary domain name. As I researched how to do basic things on it that you may need if you want to to anything other than blog, it becomes apparent that Ghost is a pure blogging site builder. You can do other things with it, but not without more advanced skill, and there are technical limitations under the hood that limit the potential for other uses.

    I don't remember how I got here but I'm gonna like this video just because the video is well put together and nice to listen to (good music, nice talking, added chapters).

    I’m a real estate agent, is it possible to add something to allow for people to book an appointment?

    The problem with Squarespace is that if you have an existing web domain now you have to transfer the DNS to Squarespace so they can now host and it is dog slow.. and what about security?

  19. Jonny Makers

    all of these so-called apps for creating a website are non-intuitive abstract poorly written garbage. I guess the new website creation tools will just have 3-pixel dots in the middle of the screen and are done.

    actually nothing about how to build a website….just too much talk
