BUILD YOUR WEBSITE

In this training, you’ll learn how to build your website from A to Z. You’ll register a domain and buy hosting for your new website, install WordPress on your domain, pick a theme and install plugins. Then I’ll walk you through my design process when I am building out new sites!

DOMAIN + HOSTING

This is an affiliate link so I make a small amount when you buy hosting through it, but it doesn’t cost you anything extra!

WORDPRESS

I recommend and teach how to design a WordPress website. There are many great platforms to build a site on, but WordPress has the most versatility and provides the greatest value. Most sites you visit on a daily basis are likely built on it.

THEME + DESIGN

I use a theme called Divi to build and design my websites. It does cost money to purchase this theme, but in my 6 years of web design, it is WELL worth the investment to get a site to look exactly how you want. You do not have to buy this theme by any means and are welcome to toy around with others that are free from the WordPress theme marketplace!  Divi gives you maximum flexibility and agility in designing, while keeping it simple and easy to learn how to make a beautiful site!
