Question Submitted by Patty from Scottsdale, AZ
I am just getting started, can you tell me the best way to get started so it does not become overwhelming? It seems like so much to learn! Thank you for the opportunity to ask questions! Thank you for asking! I appreciate the opportunity to help you. 🙂
When getting started, the first thing you need to do is purchase your domain name, but it looks like you have already done that part. (funfitfanfinaanciallyfree.com)
The next step is to purchase web hosting space. This can sometimes be purchased from the same company in which you purchased your domain name. If you don’t have a web hosting company, I can suggest one for you – just let me know.
After you have the domain and web hosting taken care of, you are ready to start setting the website up.
I specialize in WordPress sites, so I recommend using WordPress as a content-management system for your site. WordPress is free, there are tons of free themes (plugins for the look and features that you desire) and it makes it easy to make changes to and update your site.
To set up WordPress, first check with your web hosting provider to see if they offer it. Most hosting companies that have a cPanel back office have resources to install WordPress in a few clicks.
Those are your first 3 steps – I don’t like to overwhelm people, so I will leave it at that for today. When you are ready for the next phase of developing your online presence, I am here and happy to help you along in your journey.
