In our modern digital age, establishing an online presence is essential for entrepreneurs and content creators. With the growing importance of social media and digital marketing, creating your own website or blog is a straightforward way to expand your online footprint. The best part? It doesn’t require monumental technical skills. All you need is the right platform, and one of the simplest methods is starting a blog on WordPress, which eliminates the need for coding from scratch.

Let’s dive into the six simple steps to start your WordPress blog:

Step 1: Register for a WordPress Account

Launching your WordPress blog begins with selecting a domain name and a hosting package. If you’ve already registered with BigRock, head to your account and choose a hosting package.

If your desired domain name is available, click the ‘Buy’ button to add it to your cart, and then proceed to checkout. If it’s not available, consider using a different domain extension like ‘.in’ or ‘.net.’ You can also modify the domain name to make it distinctive. Choose the duration from the dropdown menu and click ‘Next’ to proceed with the payment.

 

After successfully registering your domain name, follow the same steps to purchase your domain’s web hosting package.

Step 2: Take Control of Your WordPress Account

Access your Control Panel and select WordPress Hosting to manage your WordPress account. Under ‘Manage Hosting,’ choose the ‘Go to Admin Panel’ option.

Clicking on it will take you to the WordPress admin control panel, where you can manage your website’s DNS settings, and add email accounts, and FTP accounts. You’ll also need to modify the nameservers associated with your website, typically provided by your site host, like BigRock.

To set nameservers, follow these steps:

1. Select ‘DNS.’
2. You’ll receive two nameservers; assign them to your domain name.
3. Allow at least 24 hours for this process to complete. In the meantime, ensure your website’s security by installing an SSL certificate. You can also use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to transmit files.

Step 3: Set Up WordPress

Now, it’s time to install WordPress, a crucial step in your journey. WordPress Hosting simplifies this with a one-click install script. Once you’ve completed the previous steps, the ‘Install WordPress’ button will become active. Click it to initiate the installation process.

After the installation is complete, you can access your WordPress dashboard.

Step 4: Locate and Install the Theme

With your WordPress installation in place, you can start customizing your website by selecting a theme that aligns with your content’s tone and style. A theme allows you to change your website’s look and feel without any coding knowledge.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a theme:

– Ensure it complements your website’s goals.
– Opt for a user-friendly and responsive theme.
– Choose themes that are search engine and social media friendly.

WordPress offers over 1000 themes, including free and premium options. To access themes, navigate to your WordPress dashboard’s sidebar and select ‘Appearance’ -> ‘Themes.’

You can preview themes before activating them. Once you’ve found the right one, click ‘Install’ and then ‘Activate.’

Choosing the right theme may take some effort, but it’s time well spent!

Step 5: Include Pages and Content

To add new pages to your WordPress website, go to the ‘Pages’ section in your WordPress dashboard’s sidebar. You can create a new page by clicking the ‘Add Page’ button. Feel free to add as many pages as you need, but essential pages include Homepage, About Us, and Contact Us.

Now that you’ve added your pages, it’s time to start adding content to your blog. Here’s how:

1. In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to ‘Posts’ in the left-hand sidebar.
2. Create categories, such as business, travel, technology, and more.
3. To add content, click the ‘Add New’ button.

Step 6: Click the Publish Button

After adding content to your posts and pages, proofread and test all the links. If you’re satisfied with how your blog looks, click the ‘Publish’ button on the right side of your post.

Congratulations, you’re now fully operational! Market your content on social media and other channels to share your website with the world.
