How to Create a Website
To create a website you need three things which is a Domain, Hosting, and a CMS platform like WordPress. If you are not aware of these things don’t worry, It’s not complicated so let’s know what are these things.
A domain name is the address of your website in the world of the internet. Basically. It is an internet protocol address, if someone wants to access your website they have to use this address. Some famous domain names are Google.com, Facebook.com, Amazon.com etc. You can also say Domain name is your websites name.
Web hosting is a place where your website is hosted. Your website needs a place to store things like images, videos, text etc therefore we need Hosting. Web hosting is a server where your website’s data is stored. You have to content domain with hosting to create a website. Just like you need a place to store your things in the offline world same you need a hosting server to store your things.
WordPress is a free CMS(content management system) for bloggers. Well, there are many CMS platforms but we love WordPress because it is easy to use and also you can install plugins that have many options without coding, That is why WordPress powered almost 30% of websites on the internet. The best thing about any simple literate person can create a website with WordPress.
Buy Domain Name
You have to purchase the domain name to create a website. Before purchasing domain name make sure your domain name has the your business name. Although you can choose any extension but I suggest you go with .com or your country level domain like .in(India) and us(United States). A simple domain name cost almost 10$ to 20$. There are many places you can buy a domain name like Go daddy, Name Cheap, hostinger etc. You can also find some coupons to get some discounts on items.
How to Choose Best Web Hosting
Web Hosting is a service that stores and hosts the contents and files of your website in a secure server. Without web hosting, no one can access your website. A simple web hosting cost between 3$ to 10$ per month. There are many web hosting available in the market how will choose the best. If you want to find the best web hosting then make sure that it has all the features given below.
1. Fast web hosting
2. 24/7 customer support
3. free SSL certificate
4. free domain name
5. One-click WordPress Install
6. custom email accounts
7. unlimited bandwidth
There are many web hosting companies available in the internet but we only use and recommend Bluehost. Blue host is best because it gives you all the feature that we mentioned above. And if you are just starting off then you can go for namecheap and godaddy web hosting because they are very cheaper. And when your website will grow you can switch to better one that cost more.

First, go to wordpress.org and download the latest WordPress version. And after login to your Cpanel which is the control panel of your website. You can find Cpanel in the your web hosting.

I recommend to use simple light SEO friendly and mainly a user-friendly theme. If you don’t like any of the WordPress themes then you can many more free themes in Google.
One more important section you’ll in the dashboard which is the plugin section. Plugins are one of the main reasons why WordPress is so much popular.
