WordPress site steps

First, the website must have a domain name

Apply for a WordPress website domain name

The domain name is the website address, which is like the address of your home or company. Tell the other party this address and they will be able to find your website.

Generally speaking, subdomains basically do not cost money. Top-level domains can also cost money or no money (free), depending on your own situation.

If you just plan to build a website, you have a niche concept, that is, you have a general market profit direction, but you don’t know how to do it. If you want to register the domain name first and protect it, then what you mean is that you don’t want to be on the host. Spending money is just registering a domain name.

Then, in this case, it is recommended to register with namecheap, which is the most cost-effective, there are often promotions, and the credit and user reviews are extremely high. After you have done everything and want to build a website, you can build a website on namecheap (the host evaluation is also good), or you can do a DNS resolution for the domain name and point the domain name to the host you purchased.

If you want to build a website while registering a domain name, you can purchase hosting services directly. Now mainstream hosts generally provide free domain name services for the first year. The domain name and host are all together, which is very convenient.

Regarding URLs, in general, the URLs of the top-level domains are purchased with money (the annual fee is about US$10), and the subdomains do not need to spend money.

At the beginning, it is recommended that novices do not spend money first, use firstFree site creation for subdomainsAfter that, familiarize yourself with the entire WordPress website operation process (themes, plugins, adding content-articles, etc.), and then buy the main domain name, and then transfer the website with one click (the process is very simple-foolish operation), so that unnecessary costs can be avoided.

The cost of domain name registration is not much different at home and abroad. For example, if you see this website now, I used to pay in the country (local city information port), 100 yuan a year, now the domain name and host are all transferred to the United StatesWA Company, The annual domain name fee is $12.99.

In addition, registering domain names at godady.com, namecheap.com, 1and1.com is also a good choice, and the price is not high.

For top-level domain registration, the com suffix is preferred. If this has already been registered, org is also very good (currently considered to be the same level as com).

Second, there must be hosting space to store your website

The host mentioned here refers to the virtual host for the construction of the wordpress website. The website you see (such as this one of mine) contains many pictures, videos, articles, links, etc., which are all in the form of files. These files need a "warehouse" or "room" to store, this The place is the virtual host.

Regarding the choice of virtual hosting providers, as well as the well-known registrars mentioned above, it is recommended to choose US hosting space, the price is transparent, the function is comprehensive, the speed is fast, and the operation is simple and easy. It is best to put the domain name and the host together so that it is easy to manage. Otherwise, the domain name is registered here and the virtual host is there (of course, this is no problem). The domain name and the host expiration time are inconsistent, and the renewal management will be troublesome.

Choose to use the US wordpress host

As mentioned above, the virtual host required for subdomain construction is generally free. But the virtual host of the main domain name is charged. Generally, the monthly cost ranges from a few dollars to tens of dollars, and the functions and the number of sites provided are also different. If you want to build a multi-domain site, it is recommended to useWA Cloud Host, There are as many as 50 wordpress sites, and all sitesSSL certificationFree, tryDon't use free hosting to build a website(Main domain name to build a website), there are many problems.

Third, choose website theme and install wordpress

Choose a website that suits youniche marketingThe subject of the direction (Note:What is a wordpress theme), and then click to install wordpress.

Install wordpress theme
A wide variety of WordPress professional themes

In this step, the previous operation was as follows:

Download WordPress first, then upload it to the virtual host and unzip and install it (the theme is the same) is it troublesome, and I don't know if the host you are looking for supports the operation of WordPress websites. For novices who do not have certain code knowledge, problems may arise in installation and operation.

The above process seems a bit complicated. In fact, now the domain name application, website building tools, virtual hosting, wordpress installation, wordpress theme selection, etc. have all been integrated. For example, the more well-knownwealthy affiliateWordPress quick site building toolsiterubixIt provides all the above-mentioned services: wordpress website construction, promotion, marketing, virtual cloud hosting services, etc.

Fourth wordpress website submission

After the website is built, go to google to create a google webmaster account, submit your website to google, and then create your site map and submit it so that google can include your website. Upon hearing it suddenly, some novices may feel that their heads are big. Actually, it's very simple, refer to this how toCreate a site mapand How to submit a sitemap to googleThe operation will be completed soon.

In the same way, register a bing webmaster account, and then submit your wordpress site and map. I won’t say more here.

According to the above process, you have only installed the wordpress site with only themes, but the current site is still blank, so how to create the wordpress content specifically? What about wordpress pages (pages) and articles (posts)?

Next, I will register and build a new subdomain website under this domain name (minghao88.com) to demonstrate this process (healthlife.minghao88.com), and name this site "Laodou Health Hut".

Please refer to the specific process of (sub)domain name establishmentQuickly build a website in 1 minute with wordpress

The first step is to log in to the WordPress website management background

After the website is built, enter the website management center (I use the siterubix website building tool here, the interface may be different for different places to build a website), click login now

Log in to the WordPress website management background

After that, enter the backend of the wordpress website (dashboard/dashboard)

The second step is to create the wordpress page frame

All websites are composed of a set of core pages to form the framework of your website. In wordpress, these are "pages". (Notice:Don't confuse page with post. )

After the wordpress site is built, the next job is to create several pages/pages to form the basic framework of the WP website.

1 Create a page

Find the page button (left side) on the wordpress management interface (dashboard), place the mouse on it, and select and click "add new"

Write and create a wordpress page

In most cases, after installing wordpress, there will be a "home" page. If not, create several main pages including home (according to personal circumstances):

  • Home/Home
  • product
  • Blog/blog/article
  • About Me/About
  • Contact
  • Privacy Policy/Privacy Policy (some English-language foreigners are very concerned about this page, they will look at your website's policy to ensure that no personal information or any claim page is collected)

Don't pay too much attention to what you write in the initial stage of website construction, first build a few pages to build the basic structure of the website.

After creating these pages, your WordPress management back-end interface looks like this:

2 page publishing

Don't forget to click the "publish" button on the left after creating the page/page. Visitors can only see these pages on your website after the web pages are published.

The third step is to customize the homepage of wordpress

1. Set static homepage/Static Homepage

In the settings, you can configure your "homepage", "post/post" and "page/page"

There are several ways to configure a wordpress website. It is recommended to use a "static/static" page as the homepage of the website. In this way, you can control the pages you want visitors to see on your website from the background.

Visiting yourdomain.com URL will display your website homepage, let me explain how to do it:

Find settings in the left column of the wordpress backend, then click the "reading" button and select "static page".

In the drop-down menu, select "home" as the website homepage. This means that visitors who click on your website URL will see this page, as shown in the following figure:

WordPress static homepage settings

2. Set up a static article/post page

If you choose blog as the post page as the static page, then the visitor will click on the button of blog to arrive at a static page. On this page, you will see all your post articles, as shown in the following figure:

WordPress custom homepage

Then click the save button below to save the above settings.

The fourth step is to check the wordpress website

  1. Laodou, I would like to ask, I am using justmysocket to access WA and my website very slowly. I remember that it should have opened 500G of traffic, but the access speed is really unbearable. Is there any other solution?

  2. How do I put ads in wordpress? After searching, I said that I want to create a text in the appearance setting widgets, then drag it to the sidebar, click the edit button to the right of the text, and copy the ad code into it. But you can't drag the text to the sidebar. Many tutorials are for uploading wordpress sites, but for sites like siterubix that comes with Wordpress.

    Reply
    • Actually, you are right. All wordpress is the same, siterubix is nothing special, it is just a host platform (wordpress has been uploaded to the host for you). You drag the text on the left side of the widget to the right sidebar (here refers to the background), open it and copy the code in, click save to save it, and it’s ok. You can change the display position of this ad at will. Have you seen the Google ads in the sidebar of this site? It's that simple. Novices try not to use uploads to build wordpress sites, it is easy to make mistakes. After you are familiar with it, you can learn about the FTP website upload tool (this type of website upload tool is also supported here).

      • How to drag text? No response! In addition, how do I bind the first-level domain name to the current siterubix space? Where is the position? And how to turn on GZIP acceleration.
        Also, I modified the article, clicked "update", and opened it again. Why is it still the same?
        The password of siterubix management wp is very difficult to remember, can I change it to the password I want? Can't find the place to change the password in the personal data

        • First of all, domain name transfer requires a domain name transfer password. Generally, the domain names of foreign registrars are free to transfer (the domain names are locked before the transfer, and need to be unlocked during the transfer, bluehost is like this). If you are domestic, you need their consent, and then you will be transferred to the password before doing it. DNS settings, those links above are very detailed, take a look.
          The text is dragged freely, you can drag it anywhere, this is nothing to say, try it yourself. After dragging and adding the code, don't forget to click save, otherwise it will not be displayed.
          After the update, the article did not change in real time. This was the case 2 years ago. You need to use a plug-in to clear it yourself. Now that WA has been upgraded, you only need to turn on the siteplus buttons and the sitespeed is accelerated to the maximum.
          The reason why the password is difficult to remember is that WA uses randomly generated passwords that are not memorable, which is convenient for website security. There is a button next to it that can be clicked to generate a new password at any time. Generally, I log in to the website from within WA, just click login, which is safe and convenient. Some wordpress website building platforms do not provide this function, and there is no way to manually set it and fix it. In fact, this is not good, and the password needs to be changed frequently.
