Here we will explain you on how to purchase and configure domain, configure hosting, install, configure, setup WordPress, configure adsense to generate revenue from your website etc. Please skip to the relevant content to save time. Below is a video on how to setup and maintain a website. Watch it completely and use the floating chat button if you have any queries.
To start with a website, you have to opt for a domain name. Domain name is the name of the website like wp-hostingsupport.com, in my case.
The name of the domain can be anything meaningful related to the topic implying the purpose of the website/blog or it can be a name that you would like to brand, a blog like yourname.com or yournamesblog.com etc. I buy it from google domains for $12 USD each with privacy and use cloud hosting from OVH for $4 USD without backup (optional).
Keep the domain name as short as possible. While you finalize your domain name, you will also have to search the availability of the domain. Please do not purchase the hosting or domain name until you completely read this blog once. You can experiment this by searching for free hosting and free domain names. When registering for free domains and free hosting, never publish your idea there, just publish a random example. Before you start, blogging is not a overnight success, it takes upto 6 months to show up the results as the web has a lot of domains to be crawled and weighted by the search engines.
To search the domain, you can go for any domain registrar. Domain registrar is a company who helps you purchase and register domain names. Some examples are domains.google.com (U.S only), godaddy, hostgator, bigrocks, namecheap, etc. Even WordPress.com and blogger.com is good for beginners without purchasing a domain, but have a subdomain of yours on their behalf. All you have to do it, visit the domain registrar and then search for the domain and pay for the domain.
Hosting is a web container with a specific ip address or name server assigned, where the domain name will be pointed to. Depending on the type of the hosting solution you have opted, you have to configure the domain to point to the Hosting server’s ip address.
Hosting solutions can be managed hosting or barebone server which is selected according to the size of the WordPress site. Below are the types of hosting solutions.
Based on popular choice, reliable hosting services include godaddy, hostgator, bigrocks, etc. There are some other services too, but the uptime, problems etc. are worse that you will get nightmares contacting them. The issue with shared hosting is that you have to contact the managed hosting team to get any issues fixed and your queries answered about your part of managing the hosting. Reminder: We also provide services to manage your hosting, whether it be a beginner or an expert.
Setting up the managed hosting is easy. The managed hosting will provide you an interface where you will add the domain name using the easy control panel. Then, you would get a name servers to be configured with the domain by adding it to the name server fields of the domain registrar panel.
Once you have the name servers for the hosting, just open up the domain control panel, select the domain and then select the DNS option, it would have the default option selected for their own hosting solution, you just have to select the custom name servers option and then add the hosting name servers there and save it. Once done, it can take a few minutes to even 48 hours depending on the domain name registrar. Don’t panic if it is taking long. You can contact us to have the domain configuration verified. Benefits of managed hosting includes many free features and free email solutions. This can include shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers too at a higher cost.
Setting up an unmanaged hosting is also easy. Unmanaged hosting can be cloud based VPS, dedicated server etc. The providers include AWS, IBM, Google, OVH, Vultr, Digital Ocean etc. I prefer OVH as it is cheap and the performance is awesome. The bad part about this is, you have to manage it all. If you raise a ticket, they will say they cannot help as it is not a managed solution and if you need help, we can help you with anything.
VPS or Dedicated hosting can be setup by just setting up its ip with the DNS records in the domain registrar control panel. To point the domain to the hosting, go to the DNS records. Then, you will find fields like A records, CNAME etc. You have to replace the ip of your hosting in the ‘A’ record field with the name as ‘@’ and CNAME record should be ‘www’ pointing to ‘@’ or the https://wp-hostingsupport.com/ (not https://www.wp-hostingsupport.com/) and you are ready to go. In some cases, you are provided name servers where it can be easily updated in place of the name servers.
To have your first website, you have to select a CMS (Content management System). The choice depends on the purpose of the site. If it is for just few web pages for your company, you can always start with a HTML site or PHP site using a free builder or editing a HTML or PHP template. If you are planning to blog, you should go for a CMS like WordPress. I choose WordPress as it is open source (free), choice of various plugins to select, regular version updates with security patches, ease of updating the content and availability of support services.
It is easy to install the WordPress CMS by following the wizard. If you are finding it difficult, we can help you get this done. When installing the WordPress, make sure to use a username and password different from the default ones to avoid hacking. Once WordPress is installed, the domain will be accessible with the default WordPress theme and content. You can access the domain name at the url like https://wp-hosting.com/wp-admin. Then, enter the username and password to log into the WordPress dashboard.
Once you are logged in, go to the Posts page listed on the left and delete the sample post, then click on trash icon at the top and then click on empty trash. Again, go to the Pages list and delete the sample page and trash the sample page too.
Now, don’t think WordPress is tough. It is the best CMS available and becoming an expert in it is going to make you rich!
Now, you have to setup the website or the blog or both at once. To setup the blog, you need to understand the CMS properly. For this, you have to just go through each option in the WordPress once, before you continue reading.
Setting up the unmanaged hosting would be confusing for the first time. Even if steps are provided, you can mess up as SSH, WinSCP, PUTTY, Filezilla etc are involved. We have to create a VPS or Dedicated server based on Ubuntu 14.04 webserver. Contact us by clicking on the floating chat icon to get more help depending on your requirements and choices.
Please watch the video below for complete guide on managed Website building:
To install the theme, go to the theme menu and then select add new and then search for like wiki theme, install it and then click on activate button.
We also need some basic plugins to have the benefits of getting good ranking. Yoast is a plugin which you should opt for the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) by following the guidelines.
Creating the post and publishing it can be very simple and you don’t have to worry about the formatting it you are writing good content. Once your content is live and starts getting viewers, you can always get the content formatted by a professional.
As mentioned about the post, page can also be simply created for reference purpose, formatting it is a secondary thing unless your visitors start visiting the home page. You can also have the summary of your posts in the home page.
Google, Bing etc are search engines, where new uinique and natural content is appreciated. The content can be optimized and changed any time. Once you have the visitors flowing in, you can opt for the adsense account. Please refrain from copying content. Even if you want to recreate your own page, write the content in your own words with a uniqueness. Once, Google Adsense team evaluates the site for genuine visitors, they will approve it. If the visitors are less, they might ask you to wait and apply again once the viewers are sufficient. Once, you have the viewers, you can use the quick adsense plugin to configure the ads. In fact, it is better to configure the quick adsense plugin at first itself while posting each content, so that you don’t have to sit and edit all the posts again.
Please watch the video below completely to have the idea about configuring the adsense.
