How To Make a Website in 7 Easy Steps!

Have you been thinking about making your own website, but are wondering where to start? Don’t worry – making your own website isn’t hard or expensive, and this article will teach you how to make a website in 7 easy steps! We’ll look at the benefits of having your own website, the different kinds of websites that you can make, and the steps you need to take to get your site up and running, so read on!

Step 1: Choose your domain name

Choosing your domain name is one of your first big decisions. If you want to make sure it's available, you can use companies like Hostinger, Blue Host or NameCheap. The best time to buy a domain is at least several months before you plan on launching your site, if not longer—especially if you're worried about coming up with something unique and search engine friendly. That said, as long as it's relevant to what you're trying to sell (and isn't being used elsewhere), there's no reason not to grab a great-sounding name now; just be prepared for whatever happens down the road.​ On that note…

Step 2: Choose your hosting service

If you have an idea for a website, you need to find a place where it can be hosted. Hosting is where your website files are stored, and is what makes your site accessible on the internet. The most popular option for hosting websites is called Shared Hosting — which means multiple customers’ sites will be sharing resources, including webspace and bandwidth.

Step 3: Pick a WordPress theme you like

Now that you have your hosting and domain, you need to pick out your WordPress theme. I would recommend starting with getting an idea of what you want your site to look like first. In today’s world, many people just start making their websites from scratch (myself included). The problem with that approach is if you are not 100% sure about how everything works, then it’s going to be harder for other people to use it. Keep things simple when picking a theme and make sure it has all of the features you need. You can always move themes later if needed. If all else fails, I recommend checking out ThemeForest or CodeCanyon for premium WordPress themes that range from $15-$80 each.

Step 4: Choose your website content

Choosing your website content first is important because it will be what your customers or readers see when they visit your site. You'll have to decide whether you want to build e-commerce, company profile, or blog site. Choose what you want to do and then choose how you want to help people (for example, via an e-commerce website where customers buy products directly from you or by writing articles and giving advice on how people can achieve something).

Step 5: Choose your plugins (WordPress add ons)

Plugins are WordPress add-ons that can help extend and add to your website. Whether it’s for additional features, security, or better SEO there is a plugin for everything. We recommend purchasing premium plugins such as Elementor and WooCommerce. Elementor is an extremely powerful theme builder with a drag and drop interface that can be used to create your own unique website within minutes, especially if you need to make changes to your WordPress theme frequently. Themes such as Divi are already built on top of Elementor so having both allows you to rapidly switch between designs depending on what suits your project best. WooCommerce is another must-have plugin for an online store, allowing you to sell products online with ease and giving you complete control over how your site looks through their advanced theme editor.

Step 6 - Decide how many pages you want

Decide how many pages you want to build, or if you want to just build one landing page. You can also determine if your website will have different sections and if they should be tied together. An e-commerce website will probably have more sections than one that is only informational, and a business may have multiple pages for different departments (such as Human Resources, Management, etc.). Once you know how many pages you want to create on your site and what each section should include, it’s time to set them up. This process is similar for both designing sections on an existing site or creating separate ones.

Step 7 - Start Creating Content!

Now that you have your website and online store, it’s time to start creating content for them. Content is king and when trying to succeed online it’s critical that you create valuable content for others. The key here is to create as much value as possible but make sure your website doesn’t suffer from too much copy content or Google will pick up on it and punish you! You want to create your articles by using other sites like Wikipedia and Tumbler while adding something more interesting or helpful to those articles. For example, try following Wikipedia's post about Dallas on September 22nd of 2015, and write an alternative with real information on how Dallas really is within today's society.
