So you have now registered a website name and a hosting account. Good. So what should you do next? This definitely depends upon your purpose of the website. Assuming you are setting up a blog, the undoubted platform is WordPress. Now the wordpress platform as I have talked earlier is a very user friendly and widely used blogging platform.
There are 2 ways to install a wordpress blog on your platform. The first one is very easy if you have your webhosting at Hawkhost.com. Why? Because they have fantastico installer in their cpanel. As a matter of fact every good webhosting nowadays has fantastico.
So the easiest way as I was narrating is to go into your cpanel and to the Fantastico Installer. In the installer you will find WordPress tab on left side under Blogs. Now-a-days many people are using WordPress more of as a content management scheme rather than just for blogging purposes.More of that later. So When you click the wordpress tab in the installer you will find one click install button, that when clicked will install wordpress in your root folder.
That is like www.yoursite.com or www.MaskedMoneyMaker.com in this instance. You just have to give a user name and a password and an email address. Thats it. Just type in
your website name in the address bar of your favourite browser. You will get your website/blog ready. Some people want to have their blog on a separate folder. That option is very easily available in fantastico itself. So do not worry, if you want to have www.yoursite.com/blog format for your blog.
The other way is a bit longer. In it you have to first download the wordpress folder from WordPress codex site. Then you have to craete an sql database in the phpmyadmin menu in the cpanel. The only advantage of this method is that you can install they most latest version of wordpress on your blog. But for beginners and professionals alike the fantastico way is indeed the fantastic way to install wordpress on your site.
Now wordpress is a community driven opensource software that gets on an average 2 major updates every year. So it is expected on your part to upgrade your wordpress installation every year.
But rest assured there are very easy ways in which you can upgrade your wordpress installation without any problem.
So just install the wordpress blog, and take the first step towards blogging and making money online.
After you knew how to register a web domain name, you need to host that domain at some web hosting. Do not think about free webhosting services. Go for paid webhosting services. I personally use Hawkhost. They are very professional and I have been using them for the last 4 years without any problem. You can read my Hawkhost Review and get cash back and coupons if you like.
Next point will be to go to Hawkhost.comand choose a webhosting type of you liking.There are 4 types.
Just choose a small one, then you can increase it any time you want.
You have to enter your domain name. yourdimain.com/capnel will be the getway to enter the control panel of your website’s hosting. But before you can enter the cpanel of your hosting, you need to change the nameservers on your godaddy cpanel to ns1.hawkhost.com and ns2.hawkhost.com. After you have made the payment, you will receive the details of your login and password. After you log in you can upload html files to the root folder or you can use fantastico to install a blog/website or forum of your choice.
I forgot to tell you that the cpanel of Hawkhost has fantastico that makes wordpress blogs automatically.
So buy that hosting and I promise you will get more than my bonus. In the next blog post we will learn about how to install wordpress on your blog.
OK so you want to have an online presence. Then you need a website. Pretty simple. Though there are free alternatives, but having your own domain has a lot of advantages apart from the bragging rights. In this post I will tell you how to register a web domain. At the very onset I would like to make it clear that dot com is the best domain extension, period.
Money Makers around the world have dot coms. People who have their name already might have unusual extensions. But that does not mean they have good domain extensions.
One example is Ma.tt, It is blog of wordpress’s founder Matt Mullenweg. But as you have guessed Matt does not need to prove himself. Another point if you want to have a respectable income from the internet, then dot com is way better than dot net or dot org extensions.
I will discuss about importance of TLDs in some other posts.
So first head over Godaddy.com, this is the defacto standard among webmasters. Godaddy is a domain registrar. There are a lot of other registrars like Namecheap.com, Enom.com and Internet.bs .
Each have their own pros and cons. But every registrar worth his salt has a search bar on their home page where people can search for the available names for their websites.
So enter the name that you want to register in the search bar. Then click enter. Most of the time you will not find the exact match, but do not loose heart. All of the registrars show you the alternates that are available. So go ahead and choose one. You have to fill in your actual details, create an account and pay the registration charge for at least 1 year. But in my view pay for more than 1 year. Because that gives you a lot of credibility in the eyes of Google.
In coming posts we will learn how to buy web hosting and much more.
Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
