How to Build a WordPress Website Business Woman WordPress is a flexible, affordable choice for creating custom websites. I have been using WordPress for four years. I have a basic news site and I do not sell any products or services. It’s a little more than a blog My friend helped me in setting up domain name registration, hosting and WordPress.
I did all this in less than 50,000 rupees ($ 685). The annual recurring cost for the domain name and hosting is approximately 4,000 ($ 55). You can get it in short on the basis of your hosting service provider. I run the website myself and do posting daily, so there is no operating cost. I pay a small fee to my friend for the occasional backup and maintenance of the site.
Editor’s note: There is no technical friend to help? Ask GoDaddy experts to handle hosting, core updates and security patches for your WordPress website.
Five Steps of Development for a Business Website
Today every business has to have a website. It’s like your online business card. When you meet people and tell them about your business, they will look for your website address on your business card. If it is not there, then they will name your business and Google will try to find your website. Depending on what you want to do, there are five types of websites that you can create for your business. In its simplest form, you can have a page-page website with a background note and contact us. Insert a good header image with your address, email, phone and business logo on it, and you’re working.
Moving forward, your website can be a brochure online for the products and services you sell. Mention all the details, specifications and product pricing. Be sure to publish some good photos of your products. Since it is online, you can update the brochure at any time without spending the cost of printing! After this, you might want to sell online products like an e-commerce site. For this, you need to add shopping carts and payment processing in partnership with the payment service providers.
After this, you can go beyond one-way communication of brochures and begin to interact with your customers. In addition to offering an email form, you can also integrate your social media channels (Twitter, Facebook) through your clickable buttons on your business website. Then everyone can see what your customers are saying about your products. You can reply directly to customers through these social media channels. Finally, you can market your products through affiliate networks and create ads for your products.
All of the above can be done with Word Press.
Extended functionality, which we talked about in three, four and five steps, can be found by adding WordPress plug-ins to your site. I will discuss the plug-in at the end of this article. The point is, WordPress is a very powerful tool for building professional websites – the one that can grow with your business.
So what is Word Press really? And how do you make a Word Press website?
Introduction to Word Press
How to create a Word Press website WordPress.org Word Press was created to help people with less technical knowledge to build websites.

Register your (unique) website name
Among the first things, you should decide the name for your business website. Generally, this refers to the name of your company, or your major product or brand. A website domain name is like the registration number of your vehicle.
Once you decide on the website’s domain name, you will have to check whether it has been taken by someone else. If not, buy that domain right before buying someone! Read this article to help you choose and register a domain name.
Get Web Hosting
When you book your domain name, the next important thing is website hosting. You need a ‘host’ to store all your WordPress web pages, pictures, videos, and digital content on the Internet on the Internet. This ‘host’ is actually a computer that is running 24/7 throughout the year. Visitors who visit your website will use this computer – and can be thousands of visitors concurrently.
There are a few options for hosting, including:
Private hosting where you have complete control over your server.
Shared Hosting Through Third-Party Hosting Service
This option is a good option when you need to do very customized things that the basic (shared) hosting does not allow you to do. Most likely you do not need to consider this option unless the shared hosting option is insufficient for you. If you do not get shared hosting then later going to private hosting is not difficult.
However, there is a drawback:
You must have a technical address to set up and manage the server. And technical skills come at a huge cost today.
This is the reason why most people pay a hosting provider to host their WordPress websites. Instead of buying the building it likes to rent instead of the office.
Shared Hosting Through Third-Party Hosting Service
It seems the best option. There are many features that each hosting provider lists on their website, which can be confusing. Most of them offer similar things that would be perfectly fine for most websites.
For example, do not get stuck in storage and bandwidth numbers because almost every new website for small businesses will not exceed the listed limitations. Instead, focus on backup and customer support, such as if they provide phone support, if they are available 24 × 7, then you have to spend time before talking to anyone. It is almost certain that you have to call your hosting provider to answer some questions, and you want to make sure that when you need them, they are going there soon.
I firmly recommend GoDaddy as a third-party hosting provider.
GoDaddy offers some attractive plans for Indian businesses (payable in INR), and they simplify the whole process by installing WordPress for you. They have excellent technical support round the clock. You can check GoDaddy’s different WordPress website hosting plans here.

Create your WordPress site
How To Build a WordPress Website Dashboard
After WordPress is installed, you are ready to start building your website. If you do not use the GoDaddy WordPress Website product, here are the instructions for designing your website.
WordPress was originally designed for blogging, which is why you will see a post option in the left margin. But you will also see the page; You will need to create your new website.
First, outline your site’s pages
The first step in any WordPress website design is to think about what your future customers will see on your website. What pages will your website need? for example:
Homepage with your business name and contact information
Product or service page with pricing information
About us, in which you also include the story of starting a business.
Contact us, including an email form for inquiries, a phone number and a map of your physical location (if you have one).
See this post for information on how to sketch a sitemap.
Next, create the pages you’ll need
Now create as many pages as you need to use the new Add Page> Left margin. Make sure to create a separate page for your site’s homepage. Then adjust your site settings to make it a static homepage (instructions here).
Third, change your theme if you wish
WordPress comes with a theme already installed. Themes are pre-built WordPress website designs that make it easy to create a site without the need to know anything about web design.
How to Build WordPress Website Themes
You can use a theme that comes pre-installed with WordPress or can choose from thousands of free and paid themes available online.
To change your subject, click Appearance> Themes on the left side of the dashboard and review the options. If you want to see something else, then click the New button at the top.
A good WordPress theme:
Is responsive It should also work on the smartphone as it works on desktop computers. There are only those features that you really need. As a result of many fancy features, a website that can be loaded is slow. If you plan to translate your website into another language (now or in the future), get a theme that is ready for translation. If you are in doubt about the features or compatibility of the subject you are considering, then check with the theme developer.
Finally, create a site menu
The last step to creating your WordPress website is to create a menu. It shows visitors at a glance what’s on your website and makes it easy for them to do what they want.
For example, there are more than six items in your menu – Home, About, Products, Pricing, Contact. If necessary, you can create multiple pages under each of these titles. Display the menu above and below your website.
Developing your website with plug-ins

How to create a WordPress website
If you have read this yet, then you should be confident about the power of WordPress. Whereas the costs involved – for hosting, a domain name and any theme or plug-in you choose – it can not get beyond your budget. WordPress was created by an open-source community, which was aimed at sharing knowledge to help people build a website with minimal technical knowledge. The primary purpose of this community was never to make money.
What I like is that thousands of free WordPress themes and plug-ins are available from third-party developers. So I can choose the exact functionality and search for my website without knowing HTML, programming or web design.
