So you are interested in learning how easy it is to build and maintain your own website?
Lets start with these 3 simple steps to making your own website
Choosing a Domain Name
Wordpress Website Platform
Start Building Your Website
Here you will learn how easy it is to create your very own website, how WordPress works, how to use plugins to enhance your website, etc.
STEP #1 Choosing a Domain Name
Good practice when choosing a domain name
- If you are creating a website for your business, your domain name should match your company name. For example: YourCompanyName.co.za
- If you’re planning to set up a website for yourself, then YourName.co.za can be a great option.
Domain names usually end with .co.za, .com, .org or .net, but latley, a huge amount of domain extensions (the end part of the web address, like .com) have come out, ranging from .club to .store.
Our advice, stick with the popular domain extentions like .co.za or com, they are easy to remember and cost less to register and renew.
Hyphens and Domain Name Length
Don’t use hypenate your domain name, for example your-company-name.co.za, and try keep it as short as possible, the longer the domain name the more chance it gets spelt incorrectly.
STEP #2: Your Website Platform
Why WordPress and not a website builder?
Where website builders are restrictive not only in the number of web pages you can create but also in layout and what functionality they offer, plus are normally designed for a specific hosting company, and their servers, WordPress on the other hand, has basically endless functionalies, unlimited web pages, and can be hosted anywhere in the world.
- WordPress is SUPER beginner-friendly
If you are familiar with Microsoft Word, then you already know how add your own content! Plus with the page builder you will recieve from us, creating different page layouts, adding text and images, photo galleries, etc. is a snap!
- Endless Functionality
You can have a website, a blog or a shopping cart, or any combinations of these, all under the same domain, the skys the limit!
WordPress can be enhanced with free plugins to handle just about any site you can imagine – from business websites, blogs and even eCommerce sites.
What are plugins? A plugin is a software module containing a group of functions that can extend and expand the functionality of your WordPress site, for example, you’ll be able to add contact forms, subscription forms, image galleries and so on for your website.
- Unlimited Web Pages
Create as many web pages as your heart desires.
Wordpress makes up around 24% of all the websites on the Internet. According to internetlivestats.com, in 2017 there are about 1.1 bilion websites on the Internet and 264 million of those sites are WordPress.
- Ideal for Small or Large Sites
Wordpress is perfect even for a single page website or sites as big a Sony Music or MTV News.
- Mobile Friendly, meaning your site will look great on a PCs, laptops, mobile phones & tablets
With around 80.2% of South Africans using their cell phones to acces the web, it is very important that your site gives them a good user experince, no matter what device they are using.
- Up to Date
Wordpress is forever evolving and improving, this insures that your website will always be in line with the latest website technologies from now into the future.
