setting up a website & email

1) Get a web hosting provider
Finding a patch of land to build your store is just like looking for a patch of online land to place your website and emails on. This online land is called web hosting; something similar to a rented land which comes with a monthly / yearly fee.

2) Register a domain name
Next you need to get your store a name (brand) so that people can recognize and find it. This is the same as registering a domain name (eg: for your website from a web hosting provider or domain registrar.

3) Build website

4) Create email accounts
