How to Recreate a Website With WordPress – Step-By-Step Guide

A website is a crucial element of any business, whether you’re a professional or a do-it-yourselfer. If you want to create a professional-looking site for free, you have many options. WordPress is a free and open-source platform that can be used to build websites.

Here’s the step-by-step guide to help you create your own website using WordPress.

Find A Theme

Before you start building your site, you need to decide on a theme. This is the design of your site’s look and feel. There are thousands of free and premium themes out there, so you can find something to suit your needs. When choosing a theme, make sure that you look for one that is easy to use and has a high rating from previous customers. You can also find helpful tips on finding the right theme by watching our short video tutorial below.

Set Up A Blog

A blog is a type of website that allows you to post new articles and interact with your audience. Blogging is a good choice for small businesses because it’s free and very easy to set up. You can use blogging to get the word out about your business and to increase your SEO (search engine optimisation).

If you’ve decided that blogging is a good choice for your business, the next step is to find a blogging platform. There are hundreds of free and premium platforms out there, so you can find one that suits your needs. Remember, though, that the choice of blogging platform can have a big impact on the look and feel of your site. For example, Blogger has a very plain and simple look and feel to it.

Install WordPress On Your Server

Installing WordPress on your server is the step where you tell your content management system (CMS) where your site’s files are. Your website’s files are stored on a server, which is a piece of hardware or software that enables you to organise and store documents and other content.

Once installed, you can visit your site at and you should see the WordPress login screen. If not, click the button marked ‘Forgot password’ and you’ll be sent back to the login page. You can use this tutorial to help you with the setup process if you run into any trouble.

Log In To WordPress

Once you’ve been approved for WordPress (usually after you’ve installed it and set up a blog), you can log in to your content management system and start designing your website. WordPress is a free and open-source platform that can be used to build websites.

Since you have a login for WordPress, you’ll be able to log in to the CMS from any computer or device and make changes to the site. When logged in, you can click the gear icon in the top right corner of the page to access your site’s settings.

Change The Default Theme

The default theme for WordPress is called ‘Twenty Fourteen’ and it is a sleek, modern and minimalistic theme. If you’re looking for something more traditional, the Twenty Fourteen theme is an ideal choice. Since it is the default theme, any changes you make will automatically be applied to your site when you log in using the WordPress dashboard.

You can choose whether you want to use a dark or light colour scheme for your site’s theme and you can also choose the colour of your site’s text.

Customise The Header

The header of your website is the area at the top of the page that contains your site’s branding and navigation. You can choose from hundreds of free and premium headers for your site.

The header area is also a good place to include a search bar for your site if you want to enable your audience to easily find what they’re looking for. You can find a tutorial for adding a search bar to your website’s header in this blog post.

Add Some Content

Adding some content to your site is very easy. Just visit the WordPress Dashboard from your login screen and click on the ‘Add New’ button.

From there, you can choose from a range of free and premium content types. The choice is yours. Once you’ve added some content to your site, you can display it in a variety of ways. You can either publish your content to the blog or you can save it to a private section of your site.

This is also a good place to add videos to your site. You can use a tool like SquareSpace to easily create beautiful videos for your site without needing any special software. If you decide to go down the video route, make sure that you keep the video’s URL available on a visible place on your site so that your audience can find your videos easily.

Once you’re done adding content to your site, click on the ‘Save Changes’ button at the top of the page to make your changes active. Your site’s new look will appear in a few days. If you want to test out your website’s new design before publishing it live, click on the ‘Preview’ button to see how your site will look before the final publication.

Promote Your Site

There are several ways to promote your site and get the word out about your business. You can do this in a variety of ways, including paid ads on social media, distributing flyers and putting up posters around town.

You can also take advantage of your site’s design by creating an online store or a blog post with a shopping link so that your audience can easily visit your site and buy what they see. You can use affiliate links to promote your store. When an audience clicks a link and makes a purchase, you’ll earn a commission.

Monitor Your Site’s Performance

You should set up a performance monitoring system for your site so that you can see how your website is doing at any given time. This will help you fix any issues that might arise and keep things running smoothly. You can use free tools like Google Analytics to set up a performance monitoring system for your site.

In addition to this, you might want to install a plugin that will display analytics on your site’s WordPress dashboard. This will help you see how many people are visiting your site, what areas they’re most interested in and what themes they prefer.

There’s a lot more that you can do to improve the experience of your website’s visitors. For example, you can create pages with reviews, tips and advice or you can add a contact form so that people can get in touch with you directly.

WordPress makes it easy to establish a professional-looking website for free and there are hundreds of themes and plugins available out there to help you build the perfect website.
