)-- Make a website Guide is a website that offers instruction to customers on building their own website. The Guide now offers free video tutorials to help customers build and upload a website in less than 60 minutes.
Up until recently, directions were provided as text tutorials. These tutorials are still available and remain detailed step-by-step instructions. Recognizing that everybody has individual learning styles, the Guide developed video tutorials as an option for beginners who may desire visual coaching. Beginners can quickly learn to make a website by following the Guide.
The first step the Guide recommends is to select and register your domain name. The domain name serves as your website address. When visitors want to find your website, they simply type in the domain name. The Guide recommends using GoDaddy to register domain names. This service provider is inexpensive and well known to people.
Before a domain name is actually registered, GoDaddy conducts a search to determine if the name is available. If the name is not available, alternatives will be suggested. Suggestions include names with different extensions such as .com and .org. If you do not like the alternatives, you can develop a new idea for a domain name and conduct a new search until you find and purchase an acceptable one.
Next, you will setup a web host. The Guide recommends HostGator, a popular hosting service. HostGator is simple to use even for beginners. It is an inexpensive yet highly reliable option. Visitors to Make a Website Guide can receive an additional discount with a Coupon Code listed on the Guide's site.
You need to connect your web host to your domain. You do this by pointing your domain to the web host. The web host will provide information that you need to add to your domain account. Basically, you are telling your domain where its home is on the Internet. Once you do this, you are ready to focus on creating your website.
An important aspect of website creation is the design of the site. The Guide recommends installing WordPress to build your website. This is easy as long as you use HostGator as your web host because they have a WordPress installer that their customers can use for free. Trying to use WordPress outside of HostGator can be difficult and time consuming, particularly for beginners with little technical experience.
There are lots of free WordPress designs that you can use for your site. WordPress is easy to use and allows for customization. Beginners will appreciate the intuitiveness of the software. All of your design work will be completed through the WordPress Dashboard. This includes configuring it so it works properly. The Dashboard allows you to add pages, text, photos, and videos to your site. You can be creative or keep it simple - the choice is entirely yours to make.
People use websites for a variety of purposes. Individuals and small businesses can create their own sites inexpensively. Make a Website Guide is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to learn how to make a website.
