Getting your new website built and online. Today.

WordPress is the website builder that powers 35.7% of websites on the Internet. It’s free to use, simple and that’s what we’re going to be using today.

Whether you’re creating a website for your business, blog, podcast, app, personal brand or any other project …this guide will help get your website created TODAY, even if you have zero technical knowledge and you’re a complete beginner.

Watch the video and follow along with the steps below to get your new website up and running.

Step 1: Choose a Name For Your Website

Step 2: Setup Your Domain and Hosting

In a nutshell, to setup your website you’re firstly going to need two things: 

  • Domain Name (your website address like “YourWebsiteName.com”)
  • Web Hosting (a service that connects your website to the internet)

In order to store your images, videos, content and website files you are going to need web hosting. Without web hosting, your website will not be visible on the Internet.

Also, if you don’t have a domain name then no-one will be able to visit your website.

Basically, without a domain name and web hosting your website will NOT exist.
