How To Create or Start a Website

This tutorial shows you how to create a website in wordpress. It takes 20 minutes to have your very own website running

Step by step Guide to Creating Your Own Website

Register a Domain Name

The first thing you need to do before anything else is to get a domain name for example. (www.websitehostingafrica.com). Take your time because the domain name you choose becomes part of your brand. You can see details on how to choose a domain here>>

This is the name you want to give to your website and subscription is on yearly basis. Getting a name does not get you a website. It is just a name like a business name registered. Having a business name does not mean that you also have the shop or office space.

Choose a Website Host Account

A website host is a company that has many computers connected to the Internet. It houses your site and provides you with space to upload web pages, email addresses etc.

Getting a website hosting account is like renting an office or shop premises space for your business. Since you’re just starting to create a website I recommend a silver package cost: 50,000UGX per year

Designing your Web Pages (Install WordPress)

Now that you’ve got your website hosting account and the domain name, let’s work on setting up your website.

Login to your cpanel account and install WordPress, it is all set for you. It’s free and there is no programing knowledge needed. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that is used by more than 50 million websites worldwide.

After the installation, goto yoursite.com/wp-admin, login and begin adding your content.

Congratulations, you have created your first website!
