The start of a website for newbies

9 replies
Hello fellow warriors!

Okay so I'm new to internet marketing and I'd like to get started on making a website. All the info I ever see on here about websites is how to monetize em etc, basically after you've set everything up.

What I would like is a helpful warrior to guide me on how to set up a website from the get-go. I have no idea how to get a domain and link it to the hosting, what type of software a site is created on, and stuff like so. :confused:
Sorry if this question is really newbie but I need the help, everything seems to be overwhelming on the online side... I'm a quick learner and have TONNES of disposable time in my hands at the moment.

Thanks to everybody who is going to contribute in this thread and I hope VERY soon I'll be one of the people who is spreading the help around WarriorForum.

    Hi Hydrogen,

    I think that majority of us are going to need a bit more information!

    What are you looking to do? Blog? etc.

    Hosting is pretty easy to go about. Most host sites generally offer domain registration as well.

    I personally use host papa.

    I use wordpress on my website.

    So...

    What are you looking to do?

    What niche?

    The more detail the better!

    Chris

    P.S. Here's a post I wrote, for newbies getting in to this online thing. (it's on the WF)

      Hey Chris,

      Thanks for being helpful Sorry about not providing enough info... I'm looking to create a website around some disease related niches. I also have an interest in programming so can probably learn a lot about it in the next few weeks and slowly build a website related to that niche.

      Which hosting/domain places do you recommend?? I notice you're from the UK as I am so I'm wondering if there's any difficulties in IM you've experienced because of living in the UK?

      And hey, I'm grateful for the help and I'll defo check out the link!

        Hey.

        Okay great, so now what are you hoping to do?

        Create a blog around it?

        Become a product affiliate?

        Create your own product?

        I'm not the most experienced when it comes to the best domain/hosting services. I've used HostGator, GoDaddy and Host Papa in the past... with the latter being my favourite.

        There aren't difficulties as such, you just have to make sure you're online at some point which overlaps with the States (but this only applies if you're working as a freelancer and communication is required).

        If you're selling your own product, then time differences don't really come in to it. Although you may want to price it in USD rather than GBP.

          not long ago I was in the same situation like you. I didn't know anything about IM and was a complete noob. so don't worry, everyone starts as a newbie!

          the first thing i would do in your situation is to look for a "free wordpress tutorial" via google. it shouldn't be difficult to find a good one. and you will get most of the information you looking for.
          before you start buying host and domain you should go for a free blog. just try something and start playing with wordpress and the optional plugins. try free stuff. afterwards i consider to buy host and domain. but for beginning and also for first $$ a free blog is ok aswell.

        Hydrogen,

        When you have specific questions about "how to" do anything there is a wonderful archive of instructions and opinions on every subject available at the forum. Just use the "search" function, be specific about what you want to know, and you will be taken to threads and posts explaining it all.

        Like all things in IM, there is a little work required on your part.

        Good luck to you,

        Steve

    Hi Hydrogen,

    It is great that you are finally getting online.

    I have a GoDaddy.com reseller website NowOnTheNet.com - Main that will help you save a lot of time.

    1. When you register a Domain Name you simply buy hosting for it so no need to change the DNS setting as they are automatically tied/linked together.

    2. There is a 1 click install (and updates when needed) for the latest WordPress.

    There are a few other perks too. Check it out and see for yourself.

    3. Oh and on fiverr.com you can buy as much as 125 articles that will pass copyscape (about 80% unique on average) for a fiver/US$5.

    I tried this guy and the quality of his 500 - 700 word articles were very good (just needed minor editing)
    create 125 High Quality Articles in up to 10 categories using ARTICLE B

    Simply go to Better Than Private Label Rights -- Article Builder and chose/identify a few categories/topics you would like the articles written on before you make your order.

    4. Cool Text: Logo and Graphics Generator has some really decent looking text based graphics that you can use for the heading of your website.

    5. A great SEO plugin that sometimes has royalty free images/photos is Wordpress SEO Plugin, Best Wordpress Plugins 2014 | Squirrly SEO PLUS they have a really great FREE marketing course that will get you off to a great start.

    6. YouTube has tons of videos on pretty much any topic you can imagine. I use that site a lot to learn anything real fast -- WordPress, Spanish, how to play the guitar, how to use my new smart phone, how to open and fix my computer, etc.


    Much luck to you and welcome to the club,



    SAWnet
