How to Build a WordPress Website in Web Hosting Hub?

If you’re looking to build a wordpress website, you’ve come to the right place! In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps to get started with the popular blogging platform. You’ll learn the basics, including how to create a blog, post content, and more.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) around, and it’s been around for decades. The software was first launched in 1994 and since then, it’s seen a rise in popularity as more and more people get involved in web hosting.

The best part? WordPress is free and open source, which means that it’s completely and totally accessible to anyone. This makes it an ideal choice for startups and small businesses just getting their feet wet in web hosting, as well as bloggers who want to keep their content free and independent.

The Basics

When you log in to your web hosting account with the wordpress dashboard, you’ll see a variety of apps and menus across the top of the screen. Before you start building your site, you should first familiarize yourself with these tools.

The apps and menus at the top of the screen allow you to do a number of things—from adding new content to your site to editing and formatting existing posts. We’re going to focus on setting up a WordPress blog, but you can always come back and learn more about the other apps and features later on.

Step 1: Create a Blog

With wordpress, the first step is to create a blog. A blog is simply a website that you update on a regular basis. Blogging is a fantastic way to keep track of your content marketing, as you’ll be regularly posting new content to the site. To get started, look at your dashboard and click the plus sign in the upper right corner. This will bring you to the blog creation page. You’ll see a variety of themes to choose from, as well as a short description of each one.

For our example, we’re going to use the twentyfourteen theme by default. This is one of the most popular free WordPress themes out there, and it has the advantage of being extremely user-friendly. Plus, it’s highly customizable, so you can make your blog look exactly like you want it to.

Step 2: Post Content

Once you’ve created your blog using the default theme, you’ll need to start posting content to it. To do this, navigate to your blog’s dashboard. You’ll see a variety of posts and pages already created by the platform. For the sake of this example, we’ll be going through the steps to create a new post. To begin, open up a page named draft in your blog and then paste in the following content. Don’t worry about the formatting or anything else for now—just get the content in there and then you can come back and format the post later.

When you click update, you’ll see a success page telling you that your post has been processed successfully. This is the standard welcome page on a WordPress blog. But now that you have a blog post, you can also come back to this page and read it, like any other post on the site.

Step 3: Configure Permissions

Once you’ve posted a few articles to your blog, you’ll want to start configuring the permissions for your blog. To do this, navigate to your blog’s profile in your dashboard. You’ll see a few links at the top of the page, along with your blog’s name and image. Just under this, you’ll see a gear icon. clicking this will bring you to your blog’s settings page.

Here, you can select from a variety of options, allowing you to control who has access to your blog. You can give specific individuals or groups of people access to specific areas of your blog, as well as set the default permissions for newly created blogs. To keep things simple, we’ll be using the default options here, but you should definitely choose who you want to give access to depending on your needs.

Let’s say you have a blog focused on fashion. You might want to give your stylist and photographer full access to all areas of your blog, but you don’t want the other members of your fashion editorial team to have access to the sales pages. You can create a specific group for your fashion editorial team and assign them permissions for viewing and contributing to your fashion blog.

Step 4: Customize Your Site

Once you’re comfortable with the general layout and content of your blog, it’s time to start customizing it. First, add a header to the top of your page. WordPress comes with a header called “Jetpack” that you can use. Just click on this and then click on custom headers. To add your own, click on Add New.

Next, you can add a background image to the header, as well as the footer area. To add a background image for the header, click on the large green button in the upper left corner. This will bring you to a menu of all your existing blog posts and images.

To add a background image for the footer, click on the small white button below the menu.

Now, you can add text to the header and footer using the custom tool in the upper left corner. Just click on it, start typing, and then choose from a variety of styles and colors available.

With your blog now looking splendid, it’s time to publish it! Just below the header and footer, you’ll see a grey bar with your blog’s name and a link to your blog’s home page. To create a live blog, you simply click on the link and then confirm the redirection by clicking on the button. Now, you’re ready to go live with your new blog.

Where Can I Go From Here?

So, you’ve created a magnificent blog with a vibrant community of readers. You published an exciting story about your business and it struck a chord with readers and potential customers. More and more people are starting to see value in what you have to say, and they’re coming back for more. Congratulations!

From here, you have a number of options. You can continue to build out your blog and establish yourself as an authoritative voice in your industry, or you can take the next step and start marketing and engaging with your audience online.
