Any author, self-published or not, should definitely have a website. There are many, many reasons why but I won’t go into detail now. Trust me when I say “get yourself a website.”
Is there a certain “type” of website I need? Yes. There are several different TYPES of websites. A lawyer wouldn’t set up their website the same as a little league baseball coach would. Nor would a software company’s site look like that of a makeup blogger.
So what do you need to include, or not include, on your author website?
