There is very little need to explain the benefits of personal website or a portfolio site, still, I would note down some:

  • Personal Branding

In few sections below, I tried to explain how I built my first personal website.

Tech Stack


  • First learn the basics of Hugo and how it works by following Hugo Quickstart Guide

At this point, you have your website up and running locally. Next step is to host it on some hosting platform, in my case it is on github pages.


  • There are multiple options to host your static website. Eg: Github pages, BitBucket, Netlify, GitLab


  • Once you figure out the hosting issues, it is time to purchase a domain for your website.
