How To Make A Website With WordPress
Let’s learn how to create a site using WP,
Before starting a website you have to pick a niche. Niche means a specific topic that you will write about (Ex: Technology, Health, Digital Marketing, etc). That is, if you know something very well and want to write about it, we can call it niche.
Always try to work with a valuable niche and low competition, so you can earn a very good income through AdSense or any other ad networks quickly. The following are some of the niches mentioned.
Just pick from them or choose your niche category from your favorite thing.
- Fashion and Beauty
- Health & Wealth
You can also choose your favorite niche from 2000 niches. I assumed that you have selected a niche for your site. Now your job is to buy a domain and hosting.
Domain & Hosting
You must pick a domain that is the best and match for your niche. I assumed that your niche is the technology and you want to write about trending topics, tech products, or anything that is associated with technology.
In this case, your domain name may be (besttech.com / ilovetech.com / techreview.com), etc. So you got the idea about the domain, right? Well, now we have to purchase web hosting.
Web hosting means where your content, images, media files, etc will be stored. Since WordPress has many benefits, we will purchase hosting for WordPress without using Blogger Free Hosting.
Good to say that WordPress is basically a free CMS, which is provided by all hosting companies. Personally, I would recommend Bluehost web hosting. Because their server speed and plan price are very user-friendly.

All are done. The WordPress CMS software is successfully installed on your website.
Since we have not selected any theme, so we will now activate a theme for the site.
