Do you own a real estate business? or want to make money through real estate listing business where agents can sign up? I am going to show you everything you need to do to create a real estate website for your business.

Why do you need a website?

When it comes to marketing, your website is a powerful marketing tool.

There’s no excuse why you shouldn’t have a website, even if you are just starting your business.

One of the most obvious benefits of having a small business website is that it enables people to find you online and get in touch with you easily.

It helps gain a competitive advantage in your industry and improve your business image.

I have helped thousands of people learn to create a website and earn money from their website as well as creating websites for clients.

This guide is useful for users of all ages and skill levels. However, if you need help, then you can contact our expert team to help you create your website.

I’ll walk you through everything from start to finish. Just follow along with the instructions and you’ll have a professional-looking website at the end.

What do you need to start creating a real estate website?

First, to start creating a real estate website you need a domain name and a web hosting account.

Why do you need a domain name + web hosting to be able to create a website?

A Domain name is the name of your website that people will type in their browser (chrome, firefox, opera mini,  e.t.c) to visit your website.
Example of other website domain name: e.t.c

Now you know what a domain name is you can learn more here

What is a web hosting?

Web hosting is an online service that enables you to publish your website or web application on the Internet. When you sign up for a web hosting service, you are renting some space on a server where you can store all the files and data necessary for your website to work properly.

If the domain name is the web address of your website, then web hosting is the home where websites live.

You need both to be able to create a website

However, it’s important to remember that they are two separate services, and you can buy them from two different companies.

You just need to edit your domain name settings and enter the Name Server information provided by your hosting company. 

I recommend getting both your domain name and hosting from the same company. This allows you to easily manage them under the same account.
