When shopping around for a hosting company to build your website on you will want to consider the features that you need for the website before making a purchase.
Two popular questions that people ask are how to make a website with email and a search service.
Set up of an email account for a website is done easily through the cPanel of any good hosting company.
Here’s a step by step account of how to do it: e poe tegemine
1. Log in to your hosting control panel.
2. Look for the ’email accounts’ section. In my host, Bluehost, it is the first option under the ‘Mail’ section.
3. Choose your email address, password and account size.
5. Next you will need to either check your email using the address provided by your hosting company or set it up to be checked from whatever program you use (such as Outlook or Gmail, etc).
The email programs provided by hosting companies are typically very primitive so you’ll definitely want to consider using a more advanced program, especially if you are using the email for business.
Now setting up your website and having a search service available through that website is going to be an entirely different setup. It’s great that you have decided what you need for your website but before going any further you’ll need to decide how you will build your website.
Here are some options:
1. Using HTML by hand.
2. Using a website builder.
3. Hiring a website design firm.
4. Doing it yourself using website software.
5. Doing it yourself using WordPress.
Because each of those options will have different processes by which you add a search form I’m going to talk about just one of them here with my limited time. Option #5 is my favorite for building websites. WordPress allows a lot of flexibility and function. One of them is that the search form is built into the WordPress software and is very easy to set up.
Having a search form on your website allows for great visitor usability. It allows your users to search through and find what they are looking for quickly, without having to try to figure it out for themselves.
Here’s how you do it:
1. Make a website using WordPress.
2. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard.
3. You may have the search function automatically added with the theme you choose. If not, then all you need to do is go to the ‘Widgets’ section and add the Search Form Widget.
In my opinion the best combination for making it easy to set up both email and search services for your website are Bluehost hosting and WordPress free software.
