The Important Aspects of Building Your First Website
It is important that when you build your website that you have somewhere to host it, this is the place where your website is stored.
When someone searches for your website it retrieves the website from your hosting server and displays it to them.
Think of your hosting as being similar to a filing cabinet, your website is a file inside the cabinet and when someone wants to see it, well you get the picture.
A Quality Website Will
- Load quickly
- Look professional
- Be easy to navigate
- Must have a CMS (See next section)
- Quality content
If you can accomplish these 5 things you will be on your way to having a successful and profitable website.
In order to do this though you need to be using a framework that simplifies the process.
I really do need to recommend WordPress, there are other options out there as you can see from my post
But I personally prefer WordPress……..
The Importance of WordPress – Content Management System
WordPress has been around since God was a boy, only joking, it’s been around since 2003 and has fast established itself as one of the top website building platforms in the world.
WordPress was used by 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of Jan 2015 (source Wikipedia).
I’m not telling you this to impress you, I’m telling you this because if it is good enough for the websites top businesses then it is good enough for me and certainly you.
CMS – Content management system basically means you can change your website content whenever you like. It means the only person you need to rely on is you.
Here are some benefits to using WordPress
- Very easy to install and setup (click of a button at WA)
- No HTML, no code, no need for advanced knowledge
- Over 1400 different website templates to choose from
- Over 10,000 plug in’s to add additional website functionality
- Lots of support and help within the community – If you don’t believe me type into google “how to insert images into WordPress”. How many results did you see?
As you can see WordPress is my No.1 choice if you are building your first website.
