Really this post is a very helpful post. It will certainly help people to build a new website. I have read the whole article properly and I am appreciating it very well.  But I cannot help but wonder why you did not mention about the content. There cannot be a great website without good quality content, so you can try here for example what kinds of content you may need for your website. I hope you will be benefited from here. Thank you.!
