How to Make a WordPress Website in 10 Minutes

If you’re looking for a way to make a quick and easy website for yourself, you’ve probably come across WordPress. The most popular content management system (CMS) in the world, WordPress offers dozens of free themes and a mind-boggling array of premium themes that you can purchase and install in a matter of minutes. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that so many people have chosen to use WordPress as their go-to CMS for building websites.

While WordPress is extremely flexible and a great choice for beginners, it might not be the best option for those who are looking for a finished product. For those people, we’ve got good news: building a WordPress website is actually quite easy. In this guide, we’re going to teach you how to make a WordPress website in 10 minutes or less. All you need is a computer or mobile device and an internet connection to get started. In addition to teaching you about WordPress, this guide is going to teach you a little bit about web design and how to make your website look awesome.

The Importance of a Professional-looking Website

The importance of a professional-looking website cannot be stressed enough. If you want to attract potential customers to your business, you might consider making your website look as elegant as possible. This means using a professional color scheme, keeping the font size similar, and utilizing web fonts to draw attention to key text.

While it’s important to keep your website looking nice, the design should still be easy to understand. If you have more than one page, you should consider using a single design on the whole site. This will help the website look seamless when viewed on any device.

Why Do You Need A CMS?

A content management system is a type of software that allows you to create and manage your content (such as blog posts and web pages) easily. This content can then be shared with the world via a website or social media accounts.

The most popular and well-known CMS in the world is WordPress. Let’s take a quick look at why WordPress is so popular and well-known.

  • It’s open source. This means that WordPress is completely free and anyone can download and use it. 
  • It’s incredibly flexible. With WordPress, you can build practically any type of website you could imagine. 
  • It has a huge directory of themes and plugins. Themes are the bits of software that customize the appearance of your website (i.e. the colors, the layout, and the content displayed), while plugins are the bits of software that extend the functionality of WordPress.
  • It’s extremely popular. According to Google Analytics, WordPress is the most popular Content Management System out of all 50 countries that the firm tracks data from. 

If your goal is to build a simple and quick website that you can update yourself without having to worry about breaking something, WordPress is the easiest option. Plus, with the advent of static website hosting, maintaining a WordPress website became even easier. On top of that, WordPress is also incredibly powerful, so even experienced webmasters have a hard time justifying the use of another CMS.

Static vs. Dynamic Website Hosting

If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop for hosting your WordPress website, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to compare the most popular and well-known web hosts, and help you choose the right one for your needs.

Web hosts perform two primary functions. The first is storing and providing space for your website. This space can be either static, which means it will remain the same regardless of how many people visit your site or dynamic, which means it will vary depending on how many people visit your site.

The second function is providing you with servers, which are computers that allow you to run your website. When comparing the various web hosts, take into consideration the prices, features, customer support, and your technical ability to use the software.

We’re going to discuss each factor in turn, comparing the top three hosts according to Review score.


One of the first things you’re going to want to consider when comparing web hosts is price. You don’t want to choose a host that charges you an arm and a leg, as this could bring down your profit margins significantly. Luckily, you have options. 

Dream host, which we’ll discuss in a bit, offers some of the best prices for web hosting. Even more so if you’re looking for something more affordable. 

Hetzner Online GmbH, which we’ll discuss in a bit, is a reputable web host that provides a great experience for users at an affordable price. 

Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosts due to its affordable price and an incredible feature set. This host offers both static and dynamic hosting and, depending on your needs, this may be the best option for you. 


Next on the list of things you’re going to want to consider when picking a web host is features. Does the host offer features that are useful to you? Features range from simple things like the ability to setup automated email marketing campaigns to more complex things like the ability to create and maintain your own SSL certificate. 

We’re not going to recommend any specific features in this guide because every website is different. You’ll have to decide what features matter to you before you make a decision.

Customer Support

A web host that provides great customer support is extremely useful. If you’re unfamiliar, customer support is the amount of care and attention you receive when interacting with a company through an online chat platform or by phone. 

You don’t want to choose a host that provides inadequate support because then you’re putting yourself in a difficult position if you run into a problem. On the other hand, you don’t want to pay for too much support either because then you’re not making much money off your own site. You’ll have to find a balance.

Technical Ability

The last thing you want to do is choose a host that is too difficult or annoying to use. This may end up costing you money in the long run if you’re forced to hire someone to help you or you spend so much time trying to figure out how to use the software that you don’t wind up finishing your website.

The best way to find out how easy or difficult a host is to use is by trying it out. Do a quick search on Google for the web host’s name and see what comes up. This may require setting up an account with them so be sure to prepare yourself for that step before you start trying to use their software.

You’ll also want to make sure that they are a suitable host for your needs. Is their pricing right for your budget? Do they offer features that are useful to you? Is the interface easy to use? 

Choosing the right web host for your needs can be difficult. There are a lot of variables to consider, so make sure you research enough about each host before you make a decision.
