Question

I need to create an ecommerce website but i have no knowledge about websites and how they work?

Okay so i make vases and flower jewelry and stuff and i want to sell it online on my own store. The problem is i have no knowledge about how websites work, i was googling and found out that there are separate processes to get a shopping cart and stuff?

Please guide me on this, i know i need to register a domain name because i want a private domain name, but i don't know how web hosting works? or how to hide my personal details on my website or have a secure and stable website. Also i need a shopping cart and i a lot of pages on my website because i will be putting up a lot of my products. I need A-Z guidance on this. Looking forward to positive replies. Thank you.

It is actually really easy to get it set up. I recommend using wordpress for the framework and using some basic shared or dedicated hosting depending on your budget. Perhaps start out with shared hosting and upgrade when it's necessary.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial to set up WordPress:
stuffsz.com/how-to-make-a-website/

Then just install WooCommerce which easily allows you to add payment methods, products (with all options like shipping, tax etc). You can get it here:
www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/

Both WordPress and WooCommerce are free and easy to set up. It is really easy to add WooCommerce to WordPress just add it to the plugins folder and click enable!

I hope this helps! :)

Hi, I had the same issue about a week ago, I spent 3 days trying
to find the right site.

A friend of mine just started a website: Domain-Outlet

domain-outlet.supersite2.myorderbox...

The site is backed by 1 of the top 5 domain companies
on the web, he made a private deal with them. This guy
is a millionaire but he started the website because he
noticed people were being charged too much.

He keeps his prices lower than everyone else, pays
someone like 5% to maintain the site and the rest goes
to charity.

It's a solid site, I've hosted 2 websites through his site
and have bought like 17 domain names, you can't beat his
prices. Especially the .in , .biz , & .org which are on sale right now!

I would personally take a look at this plan for yourself:

domain-outlet.supersite2.myorderbox...

You can add 50 pages to your site, unlimited transfer & email accounts
and over 20 features, just scroll down. It also has a drag & drop interface
(no code required), also you have access to over 85,000 pictures
(no copyright issues).

If that doesn't work, he has a bit more expensive options that give you
Unlimited pages and domain registration, take a look. He's also got
cheaper options too.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!! =)

P.S. - He gave me a coupon code for another 10% off on .com, .org, .net
it can be used 10 times, I think it should work for you as well:

Domains101

And this one is 10% on the other link I sent you, Website Builder:

Find the best hosting for ecommerce websites - from my experience, it is iClickster.com - I find them to be the best value for money, and have all the features needed for someone who is a beginner and also a professional.

Secondly, register the domain name (like yourcompany.com) - and activate your hosting.

thirdly, select a system to sell online - I use WordPress to create ecommerce sites - but you can use other ways - With WordPress, after you install it on the server (which is very easy, and iClickster.com allows you to do it with one click), then you simply find a "theme" for ecommmerce and a plugin - this lets you easily upload your products and set prices, and get money via Paypal or other payment systems.
