If you are Not aware of basis environment set up and Hello world of angular please go through below links for the context.

Above links help us in creating ready made application which angular CLI provide us but now we want a component of our own.

Step 1:  

Creating a Custom Component

navigate to your folder structure where you want to create your custom component
and then run below command

ng g component customHelloWorld

like this :

ng g component customHelloWorld

This command will create your component and also it make sure to mark an entry in your app.module.ts file.

app.module.ts — This file holds all the source required by the project which include all the imports of the components.

below is the snapshot of generated files :

Beauty of command ng g component customHelloWorld is 

This command generated 4 for the component :

1 . HTML file of your component
2. Test file for your component
3. TS file for writing your logic.
4. CSS file for styling.

Step 2:  

Open auto generated file custom-hello-world.component.ts.

  selector: 'app-custom-hello-world',
  templateUrl: './custom-hello-world.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./custom-hello-world.component.css']
export class CustomHelloWorldComponent implements OnInit {

  constructor() { }

  ngOnInit() {   

and and modify custom-hello-world.component.html according to your need.

  custom-hello-world works!

Below code is important in sense of mapping your HTML file and CSS file specific to this component.

  selector: 'app-custom-hello-world',
  templateUrl: './custom-hello-world.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./custom-hello-world.component.css']

So whenever you use app-custom-hello-world selector in any of your HTML it will render the
HTML part of custom-hello-world.component.html.

Lets use app-custom-hello-world  selector tag in our app.component.html.

<!--The content below is only a placeholder and can be replaced.-->
<div style="text-align:center">
    Welcome to Custom component {{ title }}!

Start the server using

 ng serve

Hit on the url http://localhost:4200
