How To Build A Website

Yes, you can totally do it. 

Step 1: Don’t Panic. 

You can do this.  Just breathe.  We’re going to set up a WordPress site. No, no! Don’t leave! Really. You CAN do this!

Hosting

Think of your hosting account as the land your house sits on. Your domain name is your house address and your website is the actual building that holds your belongings. We first must purchase the land that we’ll be building your house on – that’s your hosting account. I’m recommending Blue Host for it’s ease of use and low price point. At 3-4 bucks a month, it’s not going to break the bank.

URL

When you sign up for your hosting account – you typically get a free domain. So hold off on buying your domain first. If you’ve already purchased your domain – use this opportunity to get a free domain that might be complementary to the one you will be using. Maybe a .org or .co.

Website

I’m fully recommending you build your website on WordPress. The reason being, no other platform has the type of integrations that WP has.  Your website isn’t just a pretty thing for people to look at. It’s your online sales person – and it needs to be effective. You’ll get a lot more function, and a lot better SEO with a WordPress website.
