Today, in the world of web design, a one-page website is a trending alternative to conventional multi-page websites. The one-page website is the one where all your contents go to a single long scrolling page. There won’t be any separate pages for About, Contact, and Service pages. Rather than that, the content will be split into different sections using strips and instead of separate pages, the menu items will be linked to each of these sections within the single one- page website.
Five steps to creating your dream one-page website.
Step 1: Domain purchase and Webhosting
The initial step to start your website online is to have an address for your online business. An important primary step of launching a one-page website is to find a web host.

The domain is the web address to your website, an example of your domain is www.yourbusiness.com.
