Do you want to know how to make a WordPress website in 10 minutes quick and easy, step by step in 2021?
First you need to register your domain name with GoDaddy with the coupon for $1.18 for the first year. I think 1and1 (ionos) also has it for 99 cents for the first year as well. Make sure to pick a name in your niche, under 15 letters, if possible. Pick a niche that’s profitable, use keywords in the title and description ie: dogtrainingtips.com.
I recommend using Bluehost as they are recommended by WordPress. Click on Bluehost and, then it’s going to take you to select your plan so tap on shared hosting and you’ll see the three different plans here. Select the 1 year plan unless you can afford more to start 1 year is fine. See what’s included with each plan if you’re going to make more than 1 website then you can always upgrade to the next plan up but to start with I would recommend the starter plan.
Once you click on the starter plan it’s going to take you to the next page where you have two options to sign up. You can either put in a new domain name or you can use a domain name that you already have.
I recommend doing a little research on your domain name as well you want to pick a name that has to do with your niche that’s not used and it’s less than 15 letters those work best. You want to have your niche in your title and make it all relevant. Your website and your title should have your keywords for the best SEO optimization. You will rank higher on search engines that way.
Once you do that it’s gonna say congratulations and then it’s going to give you a page where you fill in your account information. All this other stuff I would go ahead and uncheck them and then hit the submit.
