Why WordPress is the best?

WordPressWhen making the decision to build a website, you need to decide on a content management system (CMS). While there are other platforms such as Drupal and Joomla, my preferred option is WordPress. With its ease of use and flexibility, you can create a fully functional website or a simple blog in no time at all. It’s smartphone and tablet friendly. There are approximately 10,000 themes available to choose from, allowing you to create a unique stylish website to figurehead your online presence.

Register a Domain

NamecheapA domain can be your business or brand name. It can also be related to the product or service you are offering. Bacically your domain name can be as unique and individual as you want it to be, the choice is yours. It will be your business address. I use Namecheap for my domains. They are cheap and secure and I have had no issue with them.

You choose your domain by typing the name into the search box to see if it’s available. Once you have chosen your domain, you’ll need to register it, you’ll create an account  to do this.

Want to learn how to build a business online? If so get in touch, I can help. I began working online in 2011 because I wanted the freedom to work when I wanted and to get away from being an employee. I've learned lots in that time and now work full-time from home online. With this website I aim to help others who also want to work from home and learn about the online world.
