I know of two ways you can own a piece of real estate--you can
buy one or, if you are the favorite of a rich relative, you may
inherit a good piece of real estate. Developing this piece of
real estate is another matter requiring on your part sizable
investment in terms of money and effort to add to its value and
enhance its capability to generate income. This scenario changed
with the advent of the internet. You can now own a "virtual
estate" in the world wide web. You can compare a virtual estate
to a real estate in the real world. A website is an example of
virtual estate. You can own a website, develop it to add value,
or profit from it but unlike real estate you can create your own
website practically at no cost at all. Having your own website
can spell the difference between mediocre income and exceptional
income in the ever growing commerce in the internet.
Many of us are daunted by the task of creating our own website
simply because we do not know how. Others would rather stay
within their comfort zone and settle for money-making online
business requiring no website not knowing that such techniques
combined with a personal website can multiply ones income
several fold. And if you own several websites you are guaranteed
of multiple income streams.
How do you go about creating your own website? I would suggest a
few guidelines I learned from an e-book I came across while
surfing for ideas for creating websites over the internet.
1. Pick a domain name that is easy to remember, easy to spell
and closely associated with what you do. A two-word domain name
would be ideal, the shorter the better. Register your domain
name. Look for domain registrars using search engines like
2. Find a hosting company that offers the necessary tools at a
reasonable price. Look around for reputable ones. They may cost
a bit more but you can easily recover the cost of a few extra
dollars from sales made from a reliable host server. You may try
Plutoniumhosting.com for a starter.
3. Learn all you can about web development through books and
online tutorials. Buying books and reading them take some of
your time and money, which is unavoidable. Remember it takes
time to get your site up and running. I advise patience and
persistence here for the rewards will be worth even more than
your time and effort. You can avoid the money part of learning
website development by searching for free online tutorial.
My goal in this article is to encourage you to create your own
website and realize your dream of non-stop income even beyond
retirement. I'm new in this game but I was able to do it. It is
a matter of taking the first step. I have taken the first step.
Here's to your success.
