6 Big Reasons to Start a Website

The brief review focused on popular reasons of creating a website for professional, business or personal growth. Packed with a variety of web design concepts.

For centuries, people have found hundreds of ways to communicate and collaborate for both professional and personal aims. Still, since the time when the Internet came into play, these directions of human activity have witnessed really prominent progress. It got especially significant and impressive in the last decade, with the broader availability of the Internet and the development of new technology. Decent ten or twenty years ago, having a website was seen as a sort of luxury while today, it is often a widely-used and important factor of personal, professional, and business growth.

There is a great number of big and small goals standing behind the incredible variety of websites whose number seems to grow every single minute. According to Internet Live Stats, there are over 1.7 billion websites on the World Wide Web today. The milestone of 1 billion was first reached in September of 2014, as confirmed by NetCraft in its October 2014 Web Server Survey, and first estimated and announced by Internet Live Stats. The number subsequently declined, reverting back to a level below 1 billion due to the monthly fluctuations in the count of inactive websites before reaching again and stabilizing above the 1 billion mark starting in March of 2016. In general, this is the sort of story of the amazing path from 1 website in 1991 to 1 billion websites in 2014. 

No wonder more and more people are thinking over the idea of setting up their websites, and they come to this decision along the different ways to reach various life destinations. Let’s review the most popular reasons that make people work on their websites either by themselves or hiring professionals for that job, and in some cases applying both of the mentioned options. The ideas will be supported by web design concepts accomplished by Tubik designers and corresponding to particular objectives.


Nowadays, this reason would definitely take its place at the top. With better technical abilities to present goods and services as well as fast and secure payments enabled via the Internet, more and more people take opportunities of buying and selling online, right from their desktop. It can deal even with the case of personal websites if people both communicate and sell the goods or services they produce via this website. So, getting real financial profit can be named among the prominent reasons for creating a website. Moreover, modern content-management systems support this aim with tools and features strengthen the website rates in search browsers.

Business presentation

Another reason connected with professional activity and encouraging more and more people to start their websites is the presentation of their business, whatever its nature and volume. It can be anything, from a simple one-page website giving the basic description of the professional and contact data to complex web platforms providing a variety of business directions or extensive portfolio. The core distinguishing feature compared to the previous position is that this website doesn’t provide the full cycle of direct sales from order to payment and delivery; its aim is to present the services or goods as well as the ways of getting them. This can be the reason for not only fully packed websites of broad functionality but also landing pages fulfilling the same need.

Sharing information

This is the reason why people set up diverse blogs and websites aimed at sharing information: these can be online magazines and newspapers, thematic collections, and bloggers’ reviews, etc. It is usually not aimed at direct communication, only providing users with fresh and actual information.
