This post talks about the whole process of how I built this website, and how can you build one too.

This is a blog website, built with WordPress. The whole process took me more than 2 weeks, as I was a total newbie when started out, I knew nothing about anything, my head is empty of knowledge but full of questions:

  • What are the general steps of building a website?
  • Do I need to know coding to build a website?
  • Where do I start?
  • What parts form a web page?
  • What is WordPress?
  • I see a lot ads of Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, what are they?
  • Then there is Elementor, Divi……should I use these stuff?
  • What’s domain? How can I get a domain?
  • What’s host? How can I get one?
  • DNS, SSL, CSS, HTML……WTF are these……

In this process I met every problem possible in building a website, struggled a lot and spent a lot of time to figure out all these confusing stuff. So when it’s finally finished, I thought what I have learned could be useful for other website-building newbies like me.

So I made a video series on How To Build A Website (With WordPress), it’s a 13-video, clearly structured, details saturated and manual like guide, covers all you need to know to build a website from absolutely zero:

  • The 5 general steps of building a website
  • What is a domain, how to come up with a new domain name, how to buy a domain
  • What is a host and how to choose
  • What is Content Manage Platform and how to choose
  • How to design the content of your website
  • The difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org
  • The free plan of WordPress.com
  • How to link your domain, host and WordPress
  • The 3 levels of website editors in WordPress (the build-in editor, themes, and editor plugins) and how to choose from them
  • The 2 kinds of pages in WP
  • The components of a web page (header, footer, content area, sidebar, popups)
  • The THEME in WordPress
  • The detailed 9-step process of build a website part by part
  • Additional info: plugins, CSS, HTML, element inspect, and some handy tools that can boost your website building process.
