How To Make A Website For Your Business Using WordPress Part 1
Here’s the overview for video 1.
Hey it’s bizi guy from bizmedia.com.au and today we have a very special presentation for you it’s an introduction to WordPress.
In these videos what we gonna do is show you how you can have your very own word press website up and running in less than an hour.
So just to let you know the bit about word press if you’re not too familiar with it, wordpress is web-based software that allows you to create beautiful websites and blogs. Thing about WordPress is its used by over 16 million websites around the world right now it’s great technology it’s proven it’s reliable and it’s always evolving and getting better. Another great thing about WordPress is its simple to use and if you’re just starting out that’s fine because there’s lots of tutorials and videos out there that you can get.
So now before you get started with WordPress there’s a couple of things that you are going to need. With WordPress we’re going to install it on your own domain so the first thing you need to get is a domain name if you don’t already have one so you can go ahead to a website like namecheap.com or go daddy.com and get yourself registered with a domain name. I use name cheap myself and I’ve used them for a long time and I’ve never had a problem with them.
Now the other thing that you are going to need is a web hosting account and I recommend hosting that has a true cPanel or Control Panel back end. Now this is very important that you have a host that will give you a control panel to use. I myself use host gator but you can also use name cheap to get some great hosting services at a very affordable price.
So to update what you’re going to need before we go ahead and install WordPress is first of all your domain name and secondly your hosting account.
Now once you have all that you’re going to want to go to your cPanel your Control Panel and you can do that simply by typing in your domain name/cPanel to get there. From there you can put in your username and your password and then you’ll be ready to install WordPress.
One important tip you might need is if you register your domain account at a separate place to where you get your hosting, you might need to forward your domain name servers from the account where you bought your domain name to your hosting account.
