Hi guys! Welcome to our very first chapter, WordPress Setup, of the FREE WordPress Tutorial series.
If you’re a beginner and want to learn website development for free then this series is for you. In this series, I am going to teach you how to build a WordPress website step-by-step with pictures.
Fun Fact: You don’t need to know to code. It’s all about drag and drop mechanisms.
So, let’s start the tutorial.
Domain Name: It is the name for your website or blog by which you’ll be recognized on the internet.
Web Hosting: It’s the property/space on the internet for your website where all your website files will be stored.
Learn WordPress Setup Step-by-Step
Let’s set up WordPress step-by-step.
Step1: Choose a Niche
First, define a niche for your blog or website. I suggest choosing a Niche from your area of interest. Here I am listing some niche categories for your convenience.
- Health & Fitness/Weight Loss
- Make Money Online
- Dating and Relationships
- Self Improvement
- Personal Finances
- Parenting, etc.
Step2: Buy Hosting and Domain
The next step is getting a hosting and domain. You can book your domain from any domain broker such as Namecheap or GoDaddy. But I suggest not to buy the domain name first because when you buy hosting, you’ll get a free domain for 1 year from them.
So, click on the button below to buy a hosting. Choose any one of the hosting listed that fits your budget.
(Note: Do not forget to register a domain. They will ask you to register a domain while buying the hosting.)
Step3: Login to your Website
Now log on to your website/ blog using your domain name followed by wp-admin. (www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin)
Hurray! Your website is live. Now you can edit, customize your website according to you. We’ll learn these steps in the upcoming chapters of this series.
