Well, this guide will guide you through the whole process of creating a website in a clear, concise, and most important, no-nonsense way. A new and fresh web page will be ready in less than half an hour. And save more than $ 200 by focusing on the important things and using our promo code.
Yes, we all can't wait to get started, but we should discuss a few things first (don't worry, it won't take more than 5 minutes). But, if you are already trembling impatiently trying to create a website, and want to START NOW ALSO.
First of all
First, let's be clear at the outset: although this guide is completely free (duh!), It's not about creating a free website. Indeed, technically we can create a website without spending a dime. But, you have to use free hosting (which is usually very poor ) or unpaid subscription packages for website makers such as Weebly (which displays their advertisements and brands on your website, huh!). But, the biggest reason is: you can't have a free domain name. After all, hitching a ride on someone's domain, such as "mysite.weebly.com", makes visitors not take your website seriously.
Second, for those of you who ask "who is the person who taught this ?!" This is a brief self-introduction - or arguably, a blunt compliment to myself: my name is Andrii Shekhirev. I am the founder of Satori Webmaster Academy (aka this website). Besides creating websites for my project and others since 2007, I am Elite author at ThemeForest?, the world's largest website template market - my product has helped more than 200 people create their own websites (and no, this is not advertising).
Over the years, I have tried many ways to create websites, test website builder programs, hosting providers, and countless content management systems. This guide is the essence of everything I've learned, and I'm happy to share it with you today. Huff! Fortunately, the experiment was over. Now, I must let you know that this guide contains several affiliate links. That is, I will get a fixed commission from the relevant vendor, for example, if you buy a hosting package through the link in this article.
However, the specialty: the amount you pay remains the same because vendors compensate with their own money - like spending money on advertising. So, yes, if you like this guide, consider buying hosting via our link.
Some Misconceptions - Getting Found!
Myth number one: you need to know how to program code to make a website. Of course. IF IT'S 1994! Seriously. As we know, technology has been more advanced since the early days of the web, and most of the website creation process is automated, including writing the code. You just have to choose the most suitable tool and know a few important things (which are the essence of this guide).
Myth number two: creating your own website requires millions of dollars. Only if you ask the agency to make a full website. And most likely, the steps are the same as described in this guide (then they charge big for that).
Myth number three: creating a website takes a long time. Yes, sometimes, especially if you are still a beginner and learn from nothing. But, if you are smart and focus on the right thing, your website can live in less time than half an hour. The purpose of this guide is to help you do it. So, let's get started!
Step 1 of 4: Getting a Domain and Hosting
The first thing you need is website residence. In technical terms, this place is called web hosting. In essence, hosting is a special computer that is always on to save your website file and display it to anyone who typed in a website address and pressed Enter.
In addition, you also must have an address (like ganool.life), aka the domain name. Fortunately, you can get a domain at once because there are many hosting providers that also offer domains in one bundle.
There are thousands of hosting companies big and small, but usually, we don't choose small ones. Instead, choose a stable and trusted hosting with a good track record. You definitely want a website that can be accessed 24/7/365, and I won't discuss the troublesome migration process to the new hosting provider if the old website can't be used anymore. Tiring, believe me.
Of all the hosting providers that I have tried and tested over the years, the most reliable and easy to use hosting is Hostinger: established for more than 20 years, has 17+ million customers worldwide, and is easy for beginners to use. In addition, they currently offer some attractive discounts for hosting and domains, which we will discuss a little.
Step 2 of 4: Install WordPress?
We already have a convenient hosting for the website to be created. So, nothing prevents us from starting a website. Ready?
If you ask, "what is WordPress?", a short interview: WordPress?, or abbreviated WP, called content management system, is software that helps you run an entire website, from design and content to organization and structure.
Step 3 of 4: Configuring WordPress?
Before you start adding content to your website, let's take a quick tour of the system while adding some improvements to it later. On the left side of the WP admin dashboard, you will see the admin menu with a dark gray background. Not all features are important and we will only use a few. You can learn other features as you go along.
