How to make your own business website – WORDPRESS FUNDAMENTALS (part 1)

Having a good business web site is one of the most important things to get sorted when setting up your small business. In this series of videos I’m stepping you through creating THIS actual YouTube channel and the associated web site FROM SCRATCH! I’ll take you through everything from buying the domains through to the hosting, designing the logo, installing WordPress and much more. In this video I’m explaining the fundamental concepts of web hosting and a WordPress web site. This is aimed at small business owners who aren’t complete technophobes. In my view this is stuff you should be taught in school. Most stuff is no more complicated than using a word processor.

Superb, at last someone explains setting up a website in terms I can understand! Fingers crossed it proves more popular that Sketchup videos on a certain other channel 😉

I just wouldn't trust anyone who's website redirects to a Facebook page, I've seen enough dodgy people on Facebook Marketplace to put me off for life!
Although I learned how to code a website from scratch in school, I'd still rather create a site in WordPress. I've lost count of how many WordPress sites I've set up, both for myself and friends.
I personally use namecheap and crazydomains for my domains, depending on which one is cheaper at the time.
If you're just getting started and don't want to spend any money on hosting, I can recommend X10hosting, it's completely free and I've had websites running for years without issue. Once you start getting more traffic, it does get a bit slow but it's easy enough to transfer to a different hosting provider.
One of the businesses I'm working on at the minute is networking events, so I set up a quick WordPress site and used an events manager plugin so I can have the events listed on our site, which you can then go to the Eventbrite page to book, that way we don't have to host any personal data, and it means we can just give out the link to our site rather than our Eventbrite page so it looks more professional. S
The beauty of WordPress is that it's simple enough to appeal to small businesses, but it's also powerful enough that even businesses worth millions use it.

Great, attractive, real-time visual descriptions – it's almost like you must have created web technology presentations sometime in your life before!
