What Do I Need to Start Building a WordPress Website? WordPress Website Builder
Posted in WordPress on May 15, 2014
Building a WordPress website seems easy for some people, however I have showed various students how to do this and it takes everyone at least 3 lessons to get it down pat. That’s not bad either. We are talking about creating a website, much like building a house, it can become a cyber property with true value.
When you start using WordPress you will be amazed at how fast you can have a website (or blog) up and running. After learning a few simple tricks you could probably get a WordPress website built in less than five minutes. The thing is, I believe that anyone can do this and that practice makes perfect.
What do I need to be a WordPress Website Builder?
1. Web hosting that has Cpanel and Fantastico so it is easy for you to install websites. I use HostGator but there are heaps of website hosting companies that compete with each other. They all are trying to give good service to their customers so they can stay in this highly competitive field.
2. You will also need to buy a domain name. There are plenty of places to buy a domain name. I use Namecheap but you can use any name reseller or if you have a spare domain name lying around you can use that. LOL Am I the only person who has 37 spare domain names lying around?
3. You will need self discipline and determination. You also have to be an action taker!
Please note if you are not willing to pay for hosting and a domain name then you are not serious about building websites. I suggest you start a blog at blogger.com until you prove to yourself that this is for you.
Steps to building a WordPress website:
1. Buy WordPress website hosting if you do not have it.
2. Do keyword research and find a niche.
3. Buy a domain name with your niche keywords in it.
4. Point your domain name to your hosting account.
5. Go to your cpanel to add on a domain. See how to add a domain in your hosting.
6. Go to the Fantastico icon in Cpanel and press on the WordPress link.
7. Install a WordPress website/blog.
