How Easy Is It to Make a Website on WordPress Without Coding?

WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) currently available, which provides a framework that allows users to build and manage websites using a simple drag-and-drop interface.

The versatility of WordPress, coupled with its open source nature, makes it an easy choice for beginners who want to get into web design but lack the coding knowledge. This is a common scenario since many large websites today were built without any kind of advanced coding knowledge.

Even so, WordPress is not a free CMS. It is instead offered as a free service to users on a hosted server, meaning that it is currently maintained and supported by third-party contractors.

The purpose of this document is to outline the steps required to create a functioning WordPress website without coding. It is not meant to be a tutorial on creating a WordPress website. For that, you can check out our step-by-step tutorial on how to build a WordPress website from scratch.

Choose A Hosting Provider

Before you start building your website, the first thing you need to do is to choose a hosting provider. This is the service that provides you with the online space in which to maintain your website.

There are a number of hosting providers available, with varying levels of support and customization. For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using the popular WordPress service known as 1and1. You can sign up for a free account with them using this link.

Once you have signed up, click on the Get Started button and you will be taken to the dashboard. From here you can select the hosting plan that best suits your needs.

Create A WordPress Folder On Your Server

Once you have your hosting service selected, you need to create a WordPress folder where all of your website files will be stored. This can be done using the 1and1 dashboard. From here, click on the Folders icon and then on the Add New Folder button. This will create a new folder titled “wordpress” inside of your 1and1 space.

This folder will be the storage area for all of your WordPress files. When you launch WordPress, it will be stored here. You can also choose to store any other content or files you may have using this method. Anything you want to keep for future reference or that is not associated with a blog should be stored in a separate folder named “public_html”.

Install WordPress To The WordPress Folder You Created

When you have chosen your hosting provider and created a WordPress folder, you can proceed to install WordPress to that folder. To do this, navigate to Dashboard > Settings > Upgrade and click on the Install WordPress. This will download and install WordPress to the WordPress folder you created.
