How to Create a Website without any Programming Knowledge



Create Website

As a writer you may need a platform to air your views, advertise your work or just jot down some random ideas. A blog or website is the best thing which  will be able to do that for you. However like most people out there, you still think that website creation is something which is reserved for programmers. Well I have some good news for you, websites can be easily created without any coding knowledge. So hook up your computer on the internet (I guess its already connected), grab something to eat/drink and lets have fun.

BUYING A DOMAIN NAME

 The first thing you will need to do is to buy a domain name. A domain name is something which will help people to identify your website. It can be something like yourdomain.com. Before you rush to buy the domain name there are some few tips you need to know. First off your domain name must represent what your website is about. It must be self-explanatory which will encourage users to click through. Secondly you must choose the domain name extension wisely. A domain name extension is something like .com or .co.za. Most websites around the world use the .com extension. However you may need a country based extension and in order to do that you have to search for country based domain name registrars.

Before you purchase a domain name you will need to create an email. There are many domain name registrars and I would advise you to purchase your domain name from Namecheap and GoDaddy. These are the most trusted domain name registrars on the internet. These two registrars also have promotions throughout the year so you may save a few bucks on the first year. Select the domain registrar of your choice and choose a plan of your choice. You will be prompted to register for an account and enter your payment information. After your domain name will be good to go.

PURCHASING HOSTING

After purchasing your desired domain name you will need a hosting for your website. A hosting is more like a home for your website. That is where all the information which you will put on  your website will be kept. One has to be very wise when choosing a hosting provider. This is mainly because there are many things to be considered like site uptime, speed, memory and many other things. However in order for it to be easy for you I will simply list trusted hosting providers which you can grow with.  



The hosting providers which I recommend are, Blue Host, Interserver and 1&1. These hosting providers will not bore you with any technical staff so they are the best for you. You have to pay close attention to the instructions given  when purchasing your hosting as this will allow you to easily link your domain name to your hosting provider.

INSTALLING WORDPRESS

In order to add content to your website, you will need a content management system(CMS). This is more like the guy who do most of your work and you just take credit for it. The one I recommend is WordPress. This is so easy to use such that its more like creating a Facebook page. You have the option to add themes and plug ins for added functionalities. If you do it right you will realize that you will create a professional website in no time.

In order to install WordPress on your hosting you will need to access your hosting c panel. The reason I recommended the hosting sites you see above is because they have 1-click script installs. This means that you will simply install your site as if you are creating a Facebook account.

With that guys I say goodbye for now. If you have any questions please put them in the comment section below and I will immediately get to you. Wish you happy site creations.
