Are you ready to make your business or blog a reality online, but aren’t sure where to start? We’ve been there. As entrepreneurs ourselves we understand that building something from the ground up is hard work, so let’s make the process of launching your website as simple as possible.
Step One | Get a Name
First thing’s first, you need a domain name for your new website. Once you’ve found a domain name you love, you’ll need to register it with a registrar like GoDaddy, or simply get one free when you sign up for hosting (more on that below).
Step Two | Find a Home
Web hosting provides your site with a little piece of a server to call home. This is a crucial step that allows you to publish your new site and share it with the world. We highly recommend Bluehost as they provide their customers with a free domain, reliable and secure hosting and amazing support. Read our detailed setup guide here.
Step Three | Choose a Theme
Things are about to get a lot more fun from here on out. Now is the time to choose a theme that reflects your business or blog’s personality. We’re big fans of our themes, naturally, but there are of course many others to choose from.
Step Four | Make It Your Own
You’ll first need to install WordPress, which you can do in less than five minutes from the cPanel in BlueHost. Here’s our guide on how to do just that. Once WordPress is installed, head on over to our support site for detailed steps on getting setup and configuring your theme.
Step Five | Tell the World
Once everything looks just right, launch your stunning new site with a bang. Share the exciting news on social media and be sure to tag #stnsvn so we can check out your gorgeous site and spread the word.
