Having your own website
In general, when you are saying to someone to have a website, the first thing they do is to subscribe to an offer saying that there is a free website for them in a couple of clicks away. Important thing to know, there is nothing as free on the internet. Hosting a web page costs money, either you are a peer, a big company or a state.
Second thing to note, even if it is happening less and less, some people are still going for proprietary solutions when they are building their website, as a result, the day they leave they have nothing left.
One way to avoid all this mess is to own your website and one of the easiest way to start your education with is to have a WordPress website, please do not go on wordpress.com to open an account there as it goes back to the point I was listing below.
Go on https://wordpress.org where you will download a .zip file that you will deploy on a server... that you will have to purchase online. Note that most web hosting companies are now providing modules to set WordPress in a couple of clicks so you don't even have to think about the techie side of it.
And that's it, that's all you need in order to have your own website and start bringing people to your door.
