How to Use WordPress to Create a Website

Easy to edit and publish articles using Wordpress

There are several reasons why using WordPress to create your website is a great idea. Firstly, you don’t need to worry about maintaining your Content Management System – WordPress is one of the most powerful there is and it’s continually getting updated with innovative and useful features.

Secondly, WordPress is very easy to integrate into your website. NI2U hosting offer WordPress installation with the click of a button, so it is a breeze to set up with only the basic tech knowledge.

Finally, publishing content using WordPress is easy. It comes with an editor that you can view in two ways: The Visual editor works like a typical word processor while the HTML Editor allows you to insert HTML code into your posts. With the click of the Publish button, you are good to go.

Creating a WordPress website is a quick process. All you need is a domain, a web host, and the expertise to install WordPress so that you can finally launch your website.

Step-by-Step On How to Create a WordPress Website

Register your domain name. Your domain name is a worthwhile investment to establish your website on the Internet – especially if you are a business. Registering your own domain name also means that you are independent of your web host. If you ever decide to switch hosts, you will still be found on the same address.

Register domain

Domain registration will cost you around £11.99 for your first year. Some registrars may offer this cheaper, but make sure you are dealing with a reliable company.

Get hosted

You will need a space on the web to store your blog, your pictures, code, and almost everything else that make up a web site. A web host allows you to make use of its web servers to “host” your content and make them visible to the world.

Do your research and only sign up to a web host known to be reliable in terms of uptime and customer service. A website is only as good as it is accessible – if you go for a cheap web host that’s prone to crashing, you’ll lose visitors and you would have wasted your money.

It is also important to know what kind of website you are building so that you know the type of hosting you will need. For a high-traffic website, you would probably want dedicated hosting since shared hosting will have you bogging down other websites that share your space on the servers.

Install WordPress

NI2U feature a one-click feature to integrate your WordPress account to your website.

If your web host does not have the one-click option available, you will need to install WordPress manually. You can go to this website for a step-by-step guide on how to go about it:

What you need to create your WordPress Website

To make the website creation process a smooth one, make sure you have the following ready:

Web Hosting

You will need a credit card and maybe a PayPal account in order to be able to register to domain and web hosting services.

 A domain name

Something catchy that speaks about your website’s main purpose.

An idea for a website

Figure out if it is a personal blog, a small business, or a corporate website. Knowing this would help you choose among options that are crucial to making a website successful. Finally, there is the issue of sustainment. Successful conversations do not necessarily end. Part of the planning process will be to look at how you will manage for the long term. If you are successful, this may be one of the most valuable assets you have, so think about how you will stay engage with your stakeholders for the long haul.
