As time passes the technology progresses with it. Fifty years ago most people didn’t even know what a computer is, and today we can’t imagine our lives without it. Ever since the internet was declared public, it hasn’t stopped connecting people. First thing most people do when they turn on the PC is go online and log on to facebook, or maybe listen to some music on youtube. Since the internet was upgraded to higher download and upload speed and became a lot more available, it’s hard to imagine using a PC that isn’t connected to it. But in order for you to surf the net, there has to be something TO surf, in other words, all you do is visit different websites. The question most people don’t know the answer to is, how are those websites made?
In this article we will try to bring it closer to you how the website is built. Follow these few steps and you will be able to make one for yourself.
First thing you need to do is choose a platform. There are many platforms but the one that’s going to help you the most is WordPress.
WordPress is accessible by everyone and totally free. The reason why this one is a lot better than most other platforms is because it doesn’t require building a website from scratch, if you have basic knowledge of Word, you’re ready to go. This platform is extremely user friendly and by far the easiest one to use, so if you’re a beginner we would strongly suggest you pick this one.
For the next step you will have to choose a domain name and web hosting for your website. So, to get a new website you need these two things. The platform on which you will build your website is free, but to actually keep it going you will have to pay three to four dollars a month for the domain name and web hosting. In order to get this, all you have to do is visit some of the websites that offer these kind of services, for example eHost, JustHost, BlueHost and many more.
When you’re choosing your domain name it’s usually best to make it the same as a company you’re making it for, or if it’s your personal website, your name.
Installing WordPress can be done in one of two ways. One way is by a one click installation and the other one is manual. Manual way of installing WordPress is a lot harder and takes a lot more time than ”One click install”. Almost every reliable hosting company has integrated one click installation for WordPress, so all you have to do is log in, go to control panel, find WordPress icon, choose the domain where you want to install your website and click install now.
Once you’ve done it all, you will be able to customize your website. As the interface is very user friendly you won’t have much trouble using it, but if you get stuck, WordPress has a very large and helpful community and you can always find a solution for your problem there.Read More
