Choosing a domain name is very important. This will help you to be easily found by potential customers. As in the directions of the house, there are addresses that are very difficult to find or are confused with others. That is why it is necessary to take the time to find the perfect domain name. Look at the information on the link.
Once we have chosen our domain and hired our hosting provider. we will install wordpress. Yes, install it. as if we were installing a program on our computer, but we will do it on the server.
Secure your website
For this we use Cloudflare. a free CDN service, which is very powerful. Cloudflare, will help us improve the loading speed of our website and will protect it. Also, free! Great!!!

You can find lots of information on the Internet or find books on Amazon.
Let’s do it. The next thing is to choose a theme for your website. The theme is the dress of our website. It will depend a lot on our taste and the theme of our information.

We already know how to change the dress to our wordpress. It is easy. For reasons like this, this CMS is the most used by people to create their websites.

We already have the basic knowledge and necessary to pour our website in a pleasant way. Remember, everything must agree with the user who enters our website. If you enter a messy or messy restaurant, you do not even want to use the bathroom. The same happens on the internet.
Like the theme of our wordpress, the accessories are installed with the same ease. There are many add-ons, but which one to choose. that depends on the theme of our website. you should search according to your theme, which ones serve you. The more it is not better.
If you place many add-ons, unnecessarily, your website can be slow. what is wanted is that it be fast. The less it is better Here we offer you a small list of accessories, which you can use. We believe that they are the basics, and that all the needs of the web.

If we do not update it, after a while we want to make a repair. and we can not get the replacement part that works for us. In addition, the update is free.
Now the important thing. Create our content in our wordpress. You should know that there are two ways to publish. the first, the pages. with the pages we create the native content of our website.
