How To Build A Website From Scratch - Use These 4 Steps

Have you been always wanting to create a website from scratch but has been kept away from it because you are not a techie?

If you have, then the good news is...

•You don't need to be one to build your own website.
•You don't need to pay someone a few hundred bucks to do it for you.
•And you don't even need to know how to write complicated HTML codes to be able to do it yourself.

Gone are the days where you have to learn how to write programming codes. That was a thing of the past.

Today, you just need to know how to use a computer, how to type and write on a Word document, and have an interest to build your own website.

Yes, that's all and I'm not joking.

You see... advance in coding and technology has brought about many tools and software that could help automate the building of a new site.

Registering for a new domain (a new website name) and signing up for a web hosting account to host your new site is almost hassle-free. Most part of the technical setup is done for you and you just need to... well... simply buy these services online and click a few settings.

Ever heard of WordPress?

If you've not, then you are missing out on the greatest open source software ever made... in my opinion.

With WordPress, you can easily set up a new website on your new domain in a matter of 5 minutes!

All you need to do is to click and key in a few settings and hit the install button and that'll be all. The rest is automatic. Once that's done, your website is live.

All these setup could be learned pretty quickly.

You can have a brand new website live on the Internet within half a day, even for beginners!

How do you do that?

Step-by-step Guide to build your website from scratch

Here's a simplified step-by-step guide in 4 steps:

1. Choose a domain name that you want and then register it with a domain registrar.

2. Find a reliable web host and set up an account with the web host.

3. (If you have bought your domain name from the same company as your web host, skip this step.) Change the nameserver details (a simple process) on your domain within the domain registrar control panel to the web host nameservers. This should be given to you by the web host right after you've signed up an account.

4. Install WordPress onto your new site.

That's it! Your site is now ready and anyone can visit the site...

Obviously, there's not going to be any interesting content your site since it's new. So your next step is to add interesting content to it.

Adding content onto WordPress is easy. WordPress comes with a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) editor. This editor allows you to add and edit content just like you would on your Word document. (Or if you are also publishing content here on EzineArticles, you already know how.)

The complicated HTML codes are crafted automatically for you on the back end so that it looks similar to the way you've formatted it on the WYSIWYG editor.

It does not take very long for a new beginner to learn how to use the editor, so don't worry even if you've not used Microsoft Word before.

There you go... I hope I have given you a brief idea on how to build a website from scratch and eliminate any stumbling blocks that may otherwise keep you from building your website.
