Since you already have a solid idea on how the web works, I’ll skip to the real deal.
First, you need to purchase a domain name. There are thousands of domain websites out there, make sure you choose a highly trusted one.
The next step is to draw an outline of how you want your website to look. Having a sketch will make it easier to build. If you have troubles in laying out a design, hire a UI/UX designer to help you out.
If you want to design your website from scratch without using WordPress, it is still possible. You can get a free template online on how the front-end of your website should look like. For the database design, you can use frameworks for. Django and Laravel are great options.
I personally use the Django framework.
So the choice is yours. I Hope I’m able to your question to your satisfaction.
Thank you so much unclesherlock for sharing useful information, You have shared the best information for any starter guy like me who doesn’t have practical experience in website building, Would you share some video link where i can get the information more in depth.I wish you could find some videos links for me.
The website building is not an easy task but if you have knowledge of languages you can do it certainly. As already you have purchased the domain and hosting. There could be two options either to develop on html or word press. Since you are doing for the first time we do understand it will take time. You can start doing with html. The templates are available.
I would suggest you to develop on Dreamweaver as it will become easy in future once you start on it. Do use java script and j query for more brushing up your knowledge. Keep clear which template you want for your healthcare website. There are many templates available on themeforest. E commerce website are better if they are made on CMS. you can get all the code from w3schools site. all the best.
