    How To Create a Website With WordPress

    If you need to make a quick and simple website for internet marketing purposes, using WordPress is a great option. WordPress is traditionally for creating blogs, but with their easy layout designs and optional plug-ins, it can simply be converted to a website in a matter of minutes. Best of all, this is easy for anyone to do, even someone without web building knowledge.

    Step 1: Get Web Hosting

    You first need to sign up for a web hosting service, which you can choose based on recommendations. There are literally hundreds of web hosting services available. Try to find one that is compatible with WordPress, as it will make the process much easier. Sign up for the hosting service, purchase a domain name for your new website, and install the WordPress software in your web hosting account.

    Step 2: Install WordPress

    Aside from installing WordPress in your hosting account and linking the two, you?ll also want to install it on your computer. This is very easy to do by following the on-screen instructions you see when go to the WordPress website.

    Step 3: Create your WordPress Website

    Now that the main installation is finished, you can create your website. When you installed WordPress through your web hosting account, they sent a link that allows you to log in to your site. Log in now and choose a simple layout design. Any layout will do, as they are all customizable.
    Once you have chosen a theme for your website, customize it by changing the text or background colors and arranging the layout to your desire. This is simple to do by following the instructions on WordPress. They will guide you through the entire process.

    Step 4: Add Pages and Links

    The rest is up to you, depending on the type of website you?re creating. You don?t need to add multiple pages if it?s something simple like a one-page sales copy site for internet marketing. However, you do have the option of adding pages that link from the sidebar. You can also add an in-site blog with updated posts for your visitors. Be sure to make your homepage a static page so that visitors who click on your domain will go to the homepage instead of your recent blog posts. You can do this by changing the settings of your WordPress site.

    With WordPress, it?s surprisingly quick and simple to set up a website, whether for selling your child pool fence equipment, sharing your work as a poet, or using as an affiliate marketing tool. Just follow these four steps and your website will be up and running in no time.
