#1 Choose your Domain Name

The first and foremost thing, to begin with, is a domain name. Domain name is the primary element of your website irrespective of your website platform. The domain name will have a straight connection to the SEO, rankings and the impression to the visitors towards your site.

Keep in mind that a Domain name should be:

  • Simple
  • Easily rememberable
  • Ending with .com, .net or .org

#2 Choose your Web Hosting Service

The very next step after choosing your domain name is to get a web hosting service. Here are some points that you should consider before getting a web hosting service.

The Uptime should be usually as higher as possible. As this has a direct impact on your SEO, it is always advisable to choose a hosting service which has an uptime between 99.90% and 99.99%.

2. Page Load Time / Page Load Speed

On contrary with the above, the site load time should be as lesser as possible. Load time lesser than 500ms is always considered.
