Set Your WordPress Website/Blog in 30 minutes

Set Your WordPress Website/Blog in 30 minutes

Through this series I am going to focus on how you can also own a domain, Set a simple but unique website/blog design, Run & optimise your website/blog for the optimum performance.

So you want your own domain, Right!!!!

The very first challenge for me was trying to understand how to install and set-up my WordPress blog. That was only the first challenge.I learnt all tactics through trial and error methods.It was the big thing among my friend circle to buy and run a domain.

Most of them asked me

“Why you bought the domain when free blog websites are available?”

“Have you taken any courses?”

“How much a domain cost?”

“Do I need to learn web designing?”

“How you are running?”

“How much time it requires setting a domain?”

“Can I run WordPress using Mobile?”

So in order to clear their entire question that was fired to me, I decided to start a series on How to Set WordPress Website/Blog in 30 minutes?

In this post, I’m going to clear above listed queries. If you have any other queries apart from these you may comment below. I’ll be glad to answer all your queries too.

The first query was

“Why you bought the domain when free blog websites are available?”

There are many websites such as WordPress, Blogspot, Blogger etc which offers free domain. But I opted for paid domain because Free domain has following disadvantages

No custom Domain

For example, you want a domain name “iwantanewdomain” then you are not going to get “iwantanewdomain.com”. You will be only eligible to get “iwantanewdomain.wordpress.com” or “iwantanewdomain.blogspot.com” etc.

Short period websites

Free domain offers domain registration free for only one year. After that, you should pay for renewal for that domain. These are useful for only short period websites.  If you want to develop a website/blog for a long period, then don’t go for free domains.

SEO unfriendly

Free domains are not index in search engines easily. If you want a good SEO for your blog/website, then you should opt for paid one over free one.

No guarantee of appearing in search engines

Google may ban the free domains. If it happens to your domain service then your blog/website will be no more available in search engines. Google has banned .co .cc domain in past (now it is accepting). So if it repeats again then your website will be no more visible in search engines.

You may loose your audience, ranking & backlinks after one year

When you go for a free domain after one year you should change your domain. so when you change your domain after one year then you may loose all your audiences, SEO, page rankings, backlinks, etc.

Even if you are planning not to spend any money on the domain then its okay you can opt for free websites and try your luck. All the best.

Next Question was

“Have you taken any course?”

No!!! I’ve not taken any kind of courses. I have learned by my own & still I’m learning a lot day by day.

“How much a domain cost?”

This is the standard invoice that I have received after my order on Godaddy.

“Do I need to learn web designing?”

No!!! You didn’t have to worry about the designing portion. There are many platforms available where you can easily design you page.

In the above invoice, you can find I have chosen Website builder as my designing platform.

“What are you are operating blog or website?”

I’m operating a blog site. Since Website builder was not at all feasible for blog sites so, later on, I switched my designing platform from Website builder to WordPress.

“How much time it requires setting a domain”

This depends on how fast you are. Within minutes you can place the order and within 30 minutes you can set your website easily.

“Can I run WordPress using Mobile?”

Yes!!! WordPress mobile application is available on Playstore. You can easily download and install on your device. But in the mobile application, you can only publish your content. You cannot design layouts and all.

I tried my best, to sum up, few queries.
