Create a WordPress site for beginners
WordPress site – The World’s Most Popular Content Management System (CMS) platform is WordPress. According to Biaant, Web Technology Surveys 31.9% of websites are working on WordPress.
Here are several reasons why WordPress is the most popular platform:
The platform is completely free.
The platform has an open licensing agreement (GNU GPL), which allows you to use it for any purpose, including commercial purposes.
With the help of WordPress you can create an online store, a personal blog, a corporate website, a coupon website, an information portal, a multimedia gallery, anything you can think of.
To say that WordPress is only good for personal blogs is to be mistaken. Imagine the following companies using this platform: The New Yorker, Reuters, TechCrunch, and many other media, foundations, and major corporations.
The flexibility of Settings and manipulation of appearance and function. Web owners on WordPress have free, paid templates that give the look and finish functionality you want for your site. With additions, you can solve technical issues and provide the necessary features and functionality for the site.
Ability to create a website and publish the first content within 5 minutes. Of course, to publicize the site, get large numbers of visitors, and turn the site into a popular platform, takes a lot of time for you. But you will not need more than 5 minutes to post your first content.
Step 1 Choose to host for WordPress site and register a domain
If you have a non-commercial business, WordPress offers you a free domain that looks like example.wordpress.com. But if you want to get money or do a business, we strongly recommend you have paid domain, plus paid hosting (yoursite.com).
To get started, we need hosting that is fairly good, and most importantly reliable. It should provide good services in terms of the amount of space provided and the speed of response. Also, it should provide good services in the protection it provides, the technical support, the ease of the control panel, and finally the monthly price.
When you choose a hosting company, it will help you register the domain.
First, you have to verify whether the domain name is available or not, and then you pay and it becomes yours. There are constant changes to the name of the site and the scope of the search engine “Google”.
We recommend choosing a short, quickly memorable domain name related to future content for the site. For example, if you want to create a site that talks about food, keep within your domain name the word “food” or its Arabic equivalent. Try not to have too long the domain name, preferably 3 to 6 letters
Choosing and uploading the appropriate WordPress template
The template is responsible for the external appearance of the site and for the functions that you may need on your site.
If you are a beginner on the WordPress platform, it is best to choose a driven template, in which the template’s developers update it regularly, as well as provide technical support and information to customers.
Additionally, paid blocks are used at a lower rate. This reduces the likelihood of having a replica of your location. There is a very large and distinctive WordPress shop called the “ThemeForest”, with thousands of distinctive and paid blocks.
This store is distinguished from many other stores by its firmness with vendors and terms of publishing templates on its website. Each mold must contain documentation that will assist the buyer to handle if purchased, be virus-free, and be up to date.
Additions – probably the most useful thing for starters, as after creating a website on WordPress.
Many of them search Google for “the 1000 best add-ons for WordPress”.
They put dozens on the site, and the problem is not just the excessive number of additions (which may not be of any use) or the additional pressure on the site. But the reason is to distract the owner from the substance behind its creation.
Instead of spending his time creating good content, he spends hours searching for and setting up plugins. He does this while forgetting that the plugin should be installed. It should only be installed if there is an extreme case or to solve a particular problem.
With a successful site with a future, use plugins with caution. Install them only when you want to solve an issue. When WordPress resources can’t help you, install new plugins, which can solve the following issues:
Solve the site’s security problems, fight spam. Also, improve the site in search engines, and increase the functionality of the site in proportion to your requirements.
