Welcome WordPress Warriors!

I am going to show you how to easily get a website online – in just a couple hours you can start from scratch and have your very own website up and running. WordPress is what we’ll be using to build our website. WordPress is easy to use, and it takes care of the coding for you, so you don’t have to know any HTML, CSS, and all that complicated looking stuff. So absolute beginners, fear not, if you just follow the steps I will show you in this video guide, you will be on your way to having a great looking, and very useful website that you can use for your business, or personal use, or whatever you want.

The first thing we’ll do is pick out a domain name, and I’ll give some tips on doing that, and I’ll also show you how to instantly find out if your desired domain name is available. Then we’ll buy our domain and web hosting, and I will show you the web hosting company that I’ve been using for over 7 years for all my sites, and how to get a nice discount too! After that, all is that will be left to do is to start creating your website.
