Are you one of the many people who are looking to create their first website, but have no idea what you need to do to get started?
Creating a website is a lot easier than one might think, but first you need to start off with two things:

- Domain Name
- The actual name of your website, for example our Domain Name is BlitzCreative.net. The domain name will point to your web hosting account.
