How To Start a Blog or Website
Since I have built my own website, I’ve had a lot of people asking me how I did it. Like them, I always thought it would be super difficult and technical to build your own website. Keeping reading if you also want to find out how to start a blog or website.
But it's actually really easy!
To build my website I have used Bluehost as web hosting. The web hosting is basically where all the deep code of your website is stored: you can’t have a website without having a web hosting.
Personally, I think Bluehost is the best way to build your own website. Why? Here are just a few reasons:
Step 1: Click the link above, and then click 'get started'
Step 2: Select the package that suits you best
Read all the packages through and see what comes with the packages and what doesn’t, and then decide which one fits you best.
Step 3: Decide on your domain name
If you already create a domain, great! Just fill it in on the right side. If you haven’t yet: think wisely about the domain name you are going to choose. The perfect domain name should fit your brand, be easy to remember and shouldn’t be too long.
If you have found the right domain name you can fill it in on the left side. You get your first domain for FREE with Bluehost!
Step 4: Fill out the account information and choose any package extras if you think you need them
When you have finished all this: you’ve got the beginning of your own website. WOOHOO!
You will have to answer a few more simple questions, and after this you can go to step 5.
Step 5: Install WordPress on Bluehost
Bluehost will guide you through installing WordPress. Pick one of the themes that you like the most, but don’t worry: you can still change this later. I personally use the Astra theme.
Step 6: Start creating your website!
Yes! Now you can get started with the fun part: designing your website.
