Welcome to WordPress for Beginners !

The WordPress for Beginners Guide shows you how to setup and create a complete site using WordPress. This is an easy to follow, simple and straight forward guide that takes you through the process of creating a complete, fully functional and professional website, for any purpose, as a beginner using WordPress.

Even if you don’t have or know how to obtain a domain name, I show you how to go from step 1 of getting a domain name, all the way to going live with an easy to manage, great looking complete site using WordPress.

In this extensive, very easy to follow step-by-step wordpress for beginners guide you’ll learn:

  • How to setup and configure a domain name
  • How to setup and configure a hosting account
  • How to install and setup WordPress
  • How to customize WordPress into a fully functional website
  • How to use Plugins in WordPress to enhance your sites capabilities
  • What each setting in WordPress is for and how to configure the settings to make your site work exactly how you want it to
  • How to thoroughly test your new WordPress site and fix issues
  • Going Live with WordPress and your site

This guide is broken down into four (4) easy to digest sections, each with several videos where I take you step by step through the entire process of setting up a website using WordPress. The course is designed with the WordPress beginner in mind, but I also cover some sections for the total domain and website novice, showing you every step in creating a domain name, hosting, and all the steps to installing and setting up WordPress and customizing it to your liking.

This is a “point and click” course, meaning you won’t be learning complicated HTML or PHP coding, but rather an approach that anyone can master, no matter your experience level. You can know nothing about setting up a website and within a couple hours have a beautiful and fully functioning website up and running.

If you are a beginner to WordPress or even domains/hosting and website creation, you’ll benefit from this course immensely.

If you’re looking for a simple, step-by-step, beginner’s guide to setting up a website or WordPress, than this is definitely the course for you.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
