clients website in days instead of weeks
or months I think there'll be so much
happier and also you could probably make
more money if you can turn around the
websites a lot quicker you can also
create this website using a Mac or PC
all the software is online so it doesn't
really matter what you use and your
website will work on all devices like
your desktops your tablets and your
mobile phones and before we begin I want

spare time he helps me create these
videos so just thank you so much and
well and congratulations to you and
Sadie if you guys need any help with
this tutorial
it is step-by-step so it should be super
easy but if you do need any help he's
there to help you his website is I
create your site com as long as you
follow the steps and do the things that
I do you're going to
website and it's gonna be amazing now
let's go over the basic steps to create
our website it may be the most important
thing how much everything is going to
cost there are four basic steps to
create your website that's getting your
domain name getting hosting installing
WordPress and actually creating our
website the first thing that we're gonna
do is get your domain name your domain
name is the same thing as your website
name Google's domain name is Google com
my domain name is Tyler com your domain
name could be anything you want com
org.net it's basically just the name of
your website some people refer to it as
a domain name or a website name or a URL
and your domain name cost about thirteen
dollars per year the next thing that
we're gonna do is get hosting hosting is
a computer that's on 24 hours a day
seven days a week that holds all of your
website information so if you only had a
domain name but no hosting people would
be able to type in your website com but
there would be no logo no text no images
that show up because you need somewhere
to hold all the information in order to
deliver it to people 24 hours a day
seven days a week 365 days a year in
that cost about ten dollars a month you
get a bigger discount by signing up four
more months at a time which is probably
the smart thing to do and that could go
down to about five dollars a month so
the next thing that we're gonna do is
install WordPress WordPress is what's
called a content management system which
is just a fancy way of saying it helps
you manage all of your content so
instead of having to do code and all
this complex stuff all you have to do is
drag in images and type and change
around some settings and you have a
website so we need to install that
WordPress software onto your website and
luckily for us WordPress is open source
and free the next thing that we need to
do is create your website so this
includes building your pages choosing
your colors putting in all your images
and content and all the tools that I'm
gonna be showing you in this video are
gonna be absolutely free and you're
gonna be creating your website yourself
so you don't need to pay anyone to do it
so that's also free so the total cost to
start creating our website would be $23
but I do have a discount so that's gonna
bring it down to $10 and 37 cents to
start your website and to be
distributing it all across the world
which i think is really awesome
our
so let's do steps 1 & 2 we're gonna get
your domain name and hosting and luckily
we could do that at the same place
Hostgator com so the first thing that
we're gonna do is open up our browser
and we're gonna get our domain name and
hosting so to do that you can just go to
hostgator.com that's
host:2 RCom and press enter
and I think Hostgator is really great
they have 24/7 365 live chat email or
phone support and I've personally been
with them for 13 years and their prices
are really good but there are thousands
and thousands of different hosting
companies and obviously I haven't tried
all of them and if you do go with
another host then this tutorial is going
to be a little bit different but it
should still be super easy to follow
along so next we're gonna see all of
these different options web hosting
website builder cloud hosting wordpress
hosting reseller VPS dedicated in
domains and you might be thinking if
we're doing a WordPress website why not
do WordPress hosting but in my opinion
that just has so many different bells
and whistles they don't really need and
you can always upgrade later so we're
just gonna stick with web hosting so go
ahead and click on that and if we scroll
down a little bit we're gonna see that
we have three different plans the
hatchling plan the baby plan and the
business plan the business plan in my
opinion just has way too much stuff that
you really don't need so it really is
between the hatchling and the baby plan
the difference between these is that the
baby plan offers unlimited domains so
you can have like your website com your
mom's website or a friend's website net
or a business clients website you can
have as many websites as you want but
with the hatchling plan you can only
have one website so like your website
com but because you can always upgrade
your website at any time and you're
probably only starting off with one
website I recommend getting the
hatchling plan so we're just gonna click
on buy now and now it's gonna ask us to
choose our domain name aka
our website name and we can either
register a new domain name or you can
say I already own this domain name maybe
you bought a domain name from somewhere
like godaddy.com and you already have it
you can enter it in right here so you'd
put I already have this domain name
