This is how to build a website or blog without knowing Dreamweaver or spending time to learn html.
Truth is many people think you need to learn Dreamweaver and html before you can build a blog or website.
Well you don’t.
With a simple tool called WordPress …you can build almost anything.
I built this site myself…(and many more sites like this) …but I don’t know Dreamweaver and html so well.
First, there are 2 types of website or blog.
1. Free website or blog
These blogs do work but there are many problems associated with free blogging platforms.
2. Self-Hosted Websites Or Blogs
These are websites and blogs built on a personal domain name.
For example www.nairaCow.com is a self-hosted blog/website.
I installed WordPress on it and is now using it.
There is a big difference between the free WordPress blog at www.wordpress.com and using the WordPress software on your self-hosted blog/website.
Nairacow.com still uses WordPress …but I am using it on my domain name and web hosting, not on a free blogging platform.
How To Create A Website Like Nairacow.Com … Steps
1. Buy A Domain Name
I use namecheap.com (affiliate link) to buy all my domain names because it I a reliable company and you can pay with your normal ATM card.
This is what a domain name means …just in case you don’t know.
2. Buy Web Hosting
Web hosting is the space where your website/blog will be saved. You need a web host to make your website/blog live on the internet.
You can use this analogy to understand what web hosting is.
The domain name is the building /house address….while the web hosting is the land where the building will be located.
If you buy unlimited webhosting …it means you can have many houses (domain names)…on the land (web hosting account).
This is exactly what I do and use.
I host many domains on my web hosting account.
Hope I am making sense?
I use and recommend BlueHost. (Affiliate link)
This BlueHost coupon code will give you 25% discount and earn me a commission – nairacow25
Go try it.
More Bonus- if you buy with that affiliate link and send me an email – I will send you a special manual that show how to set up your BlueHost account and website.
In fact, if you buy with that affiliate link, I will help set up the account for you and install WordPress for you …FREE.
…but you must buy with my affiliate link to enjoy this offer.
BlueHost. (Affiliate link)
I get a commission and do all the work for you.
Just email me after you buy with that link and I will take care of you.
Step 3 :Connect Domain To Web Host
After buying the domain name and webhost, you need to connect them together. This is achieved by changing the name servers on your domain account.
If this sounds like Greek, well it is a 2 minutes step that links the 2 accounts together.
By the way, it is always advisable to buy domain names and web hosting from 2 separate companies.
I show how to do this in the special bonus manual.
Step 4 :Install WordPress
On BlueHost, you can install WordPress in 2 minutes.
But first, you need to create a directory for your domain on the webhost.
This simple steps links the domain and web host…on the web hosting account.
This video shows how to do this.
Step 5 :Customize your installation
After installing WordPress, you need to customize it by installing…
You also need to setup stuffs, like permalink etc.
I had created a course for that at www.3daywebsitecourse.com .
But frankly, WordPress keeps changing stuff and updating stuff…so the course may a little outdate….but still useful.
If you order BlueHost web hosting with this affiliate link, I will get commissions and you get this course also as a bonus.
So you will get all these bonuses if you order.
By the way, if you prefer that i buy everything, set everything up for you …and customize it…you can still contact me.
Got a question ask in the comment.
