How to create a website
In 2020, anyone can build and design a website without knowing anything about web development, design or coding.
Whether you want to create a website for yourself or for your business, you can easily do that by using the right tools and resources.
This step-by-step guide will help you create a website from scratch without having to spend money for freelancers, agencies or website builders.
All you need is 1-2 hours of your free time to complete the guide and set up a website.
Things you need in order to build a website
- Domain name (your custom web address, www.YourSite.com)
- Website hosting (service that hosts your website)
- WordPress (free, commonly used website platform)
To build a fully functional website, you’ll need to secure a domain name (web address) and a web hosting account. These two make sure that your website is fully accessible to others. Without one or another, you will be unable to set up a website.
Once you have domain and hosting, you can create a WordPress website. WordPress is the most popular website building platform that is being used by 30% of all the websites on the Internet.
Setting up a WordPress site is usually a simple, one-click process through your web hosting service.
Once you’ve finished the guide, you’ll have a fully working website online, on a custom domain name and fully accessible by others.
