You may even decide to build a website. First, congratulations! This means that you are working on something that the entire world should know. This guide will help you navigate the entire process of creating your website. It is clear, concise, and, most importantly, non-nonsense. In less than 30 minutes, a new website will be created. We can’t wait for the new web page to be launched.

Four Steps to Building a Website

Hosting and Domain Registration

First, you will need somewhere to live to host your website. This place is known as web hosting. Hosting is basically a computer that stores your website files on a dedicated server and displays them to anyone who enters the website address and presses Enter.

You must also have an address, such as www.google.com. Many hosting companies offer domains as a bundle. Although there are many hosting companies available, we tend to choose the smaller ones. Choose a reliable and trustworthy hosting company with a proven track record. A website that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year is important. I won’t go through the tedious migration to a new provider if my old site doesn’t work anymore. Exhausting, believe me.

How to Install WordPress

The website will be hosted on our existing hosting. We have everything we need to start a website. Ready? Ready?

Why WordPress? WordPress is the most popular website engine on the internet, hosting nearly a third of all websites. WP is easy to use and modify, free to download thousands of plugins, and there are many users who support one another. There are many tutorials, guides, and tips for using WordPress that are available online. Most of them are free.

Configuring WordPress

Let’s go over the system briefly before we start adding content to our website. The admin menu is located on the left sidebar of the WordPress admin dashboard. It has a dark gray background. We won’t use all the features, but we will be using a small number of them. You can also learn more features as you go.

Posts and Pages are the most popular sections. Here you can add new content as well as comments to facilitate discussion. There are two types of content: A page is for static content, like an “About Us” page. While posts are for content that changes frequently, like news posts or blog posts, a post is for dynamic content.



Adding Plugins and Themes

It is possible to ignore the website’s appearance and concentrate on its content. It means that your website will look the same as millions of websites with the same default theme.

There are tons of WP themes that allow for customization and personalization. You can easily create a website that has a unique look. You can add new features to your website with plugins. These plugins include pop-ups, translations, forums, and community members.



Useful Tips

We’re done! Enjoy your new website! For advice and best practices, please continue to the final section of this guide. We’ll discuss free ways to improve website security and backups. It’s here.

Secure Your Website

Your website may still be new and simple, but you might want to pay attention to other aspects. Nobody wants to hack it. There are small things that can be done quickly and reduce your chance of being attacked up to ten times.

First, and most importantly, don’t use admin as your username for the WordPress admin panel. Use another word. This alone will make it difficult for hackers to access your website thousands of times. Strong passwords should contain capital letters, numbers, symbols, and other special characters. Two-factor authentication is a method that allows you to increase your security. It’s a code that the phone generates when you log in.

Many people neglect to update WordPress, plugins, or themes. While we covered this in Step 2 (“Installing WordPress”) you should still be attentive to the WP admin update notifications. For those who are more cautious, I recommend that you install the Wordfence plugin. You have many additional protection options to help even the most paranoid webmasters get a good night of sleep.



Simple Automatic Backups

You don’t want time spent on manual backups. You can do better things, such as creating content for websites.
