If you have come here searching for some tips to start a new website or online shop or your small biz website, then you have arrived at the right place. I built this blog specially to guide people to build their 1st website the easy and quick way
I still remember the first time I started building my first personal web-blog on tripod. It was with the help of my Uni free library internet and when I was at home, it was on my slow 56k modem internet connection.
In those times there was only dial up and the internet speeds were painfully slow, compared to today. You can imagine building a website with those speeds. It could take a couple of days just to build one page of your webpage and it did.
Today i can build a whole website in just 10 to 15 minutes and then just tidy up with some good free design templates and free SEO WP plugins and its all done.
I actually built my first website learning html by- myself and coding my website from scratch. I’d like to think my first website was a pretty good effort at that time. It was my personal web-diary so to speak. It was what most bloggers were doing at that time, today bloggers earn a full time income doing this (Not me,yet)
So what is wordpress ?
Many people dont know , but its a free software. Its is also one of the most popular website building platform on the internet.
Prices for hosting
So whats the catch ? – The software Its Free , but you need purchased hosting to host your blog on it. Purchased hosting can be bought for anywhere from $1- godaddy hosting , $3.95 Blue host hosting, $5.95 Hostgator hosting to $5000 a month hosting.
WordPress is one of the easiest website building software available today, which makes it easy to install, build and maintain a website all by yourself. Yes you can build a website in a total of just 10 minutes, I have done it and timed it. If you are not as tech savvy as me , you can add another 10 to 15 mins to the process.The whole setup with this software is done by just a point and click of your mouse.
Once you finish installing it with point and click , you will off course need to add content and so you will need to type 😉
Designing the WP blog
You might need to spend some time if you want a better design than the default word press design. To do this all you need to do is go to the themes section and choose a better design from the free wp webdesigns and click to activate the new design.
