Create Website With WordPress

Website design

Why create a website?

First Project

A website can be shown as your first project for your career as a professional in Digital Marketing, Website Design, Content Marketing, etc. Your personal website can make you stand out from the crowd if you are applying for a job or approaching a client as a freelancer in the above-mentioned domains.


Are you a business owner or a professional? Either of you needs a portfolio to showcase your product or services to your clients across the world. It will be easy for your clients to know more about your service and connect with you. If your business is not on the internet then there is a chance of getting outdated.

Personal Branding

Having a great personal brand in your niche is very important to excel yourself from the competition. A website helps to build a great personal brand as it drives more traffic than any other medium in this digital age. Premium brands charge a big amount and also they don’t need to chase any clients. All these are possible by having a website.


Blogging is the best way to build a personal brand. While blogging in your niche you learn a lot and do research before publishing as it is not only read by you but also by your entire audience. Thus you gain great knowledge and form an authority in your niche and people follow you.


How to create a website?

A website can be created by following two methods.

  1. PHP/HTML Coding
  2. Website Builder Platforms
What are website builder platforms?

Website builder platforms are the applications that ease the job of creating a website. No coding or technical skills are required to create a website with these platforms. Anybody with basic operating knowledge of computers and the internet can easily build their own website or even their clients. Some of the website builder tools are WordPress, Wix, Joomla, Weebly, etc.

Why WordPress?

  • WordPress is an open-source website builder so it is free to use. 
  • 37% of the total websites in the world are created with WordPress.
  • WordPress has a lot of free themes and plugins readily available.
  • WordPress frequently updates its version to make it secure.
  • Easy to use with simple drag and drop features.

Show Your website to the world

Making your website ready for the world requires three steps and they are:

  1. Domain Name Registration
  2. Website Hosting
  3. DNS Configuration
Domain Name Registration

when you have a website all the data of your website are stored on a server that has an IP address to access it. Technically if you know the IP address of a website you can view that website. But it is harder for a human brain to remember the IP address of each website which is like remembering all the contact numbers of a phone.

So to make it simple Domain Name System plays an important role in keeping each IP address to their respective domain names just like putting a contact name for the respective numbers of your phone. 

The working of a website is when you search a domain name DNS server looks up the IP address of the website and loads the data of that specific server. Therefore a domain name is mandatory to make a website and showcase it to the world.

There are a lot of service providers who offer Domain Name Registration services for your website like Godaddy, Namecheap, Bigrock, etc. And registering a domain name is as simple as purchasing a product from amazon. Let’s see an example of registering a domain name in Bigrock.

This is the website interface of

Enter the details to register a new account

Select your domain name and checkout
Website Hosting

As mentioned earlier the website is a group of data that is stored on a web server. The job of the server is the same as that of a hard disk or a pen drive mainly storing the details of the website that includes texts, images, videos, codes, etc.

So the actual files that make up your website are stored and maintained by your web hosting service provider. This can be the same as your registrar and DNS server or you can have a separate service provider for hosting. The latter is the better option if you want to change either of the services in the future.

Some of the hosting services providers are Hostinger, HostGator, Bluehost, Hostwinds, etc. All these hosting companies also provide domain registration services as well.  I suggest Hostinger and Bluehost for their best service and customer support. Purchasing a host is the same as shown above that includes Sign up first followed by selecting a plan and checkout.

DNS Configuration

Once you purchase the hosting service from your service provider here comes the most important step of DNS configuration. In simple, we can say that pointing the IP address of the website to the domain name server.

After you successfully finish the purchase of the hosting services you will be asked whether you want to create a new website or import an existing website. Select create a new website and follow the steps. 

If your domain registrar and host are different then the records of the name server of your domain name registrar need to be replaced with that of your host to point your IP address of the website.

Here is an example with Bigrock as a registrar and Hostinger as a host.

hostinger name server records
Name server record of the host is marked in red which is needed to copy
Bigrock name server
Remove the current data and update with what is copied from above

Now your website is on air finally what you need is some content to add to your website. For this, your host asks how you want to upload your website? As there are many options which include uploading a word file of PHP/HTML codes or Install site builders such as WordPress, Joomla, Wix etc.

Here you have to choose WordPress and the host will automatically configure it.

Let’s see how it looks in Hostinger.

Here is how it looks once WordPress installed and now click on the dashboard
Wordpress editing hostinger
You can turn on maintenance mode and start editing by clicking Edit Website
Worpdress interface
This the interface of WordPress and now you can install any theme and import. After that you can replace the contents of the theme with your contents as shown in the first example of wordPress web page above.

Here we go! Your website is ready. As simple as cooking a Maggi. Now you have learned how to create a website with WordPress. Stay tuned for the next article about Facebook Marketing.
