Once you've picked your niche and done some in-depth keyword research, you need to start thinking about getting your website live on the internet!
In a nutshell, you need 3 things to get your website up and running:
1. You need a domain name. I recommend picking a domain name that is short and memorable/brandable. Don't worry about keywords in your domain name. You can register a domain name for about $10 usually from places like NameCheap.com or GoDaddy.com.
2. You need server space to "host" your website. I recommend using BlueHost.com. I've used Blue Host for many years and have been very happy with them.
3. Install WordPress. Using Wordpress isn't required; however, its a really easy to use content management system, that I have used for years. Oh yeah, and its free!
Basically, WordPress allows you to get a beautiful website up and running without knowing how to do any programming.
If you go with BlueHost.com for your hosting service, they have a one-click install of WordPress.
Overall, once you complete these very simple steps, you will be up and running with your brand new website...congrats!
