How to Create a WordPress Site Using Godaddy

If you are new to creating a website these are the steps. (do it yourself web development)
  1. Do your research and have your website plan! Highly recommended. Read the rest of this site to get an idea on how.
  2. Register a domain (like opensm) I use Godaddy for domain registrations.
  3. Purchase a website hosting service. I use wordpress so it runs on linux servers, so your web hosting needs to be linux servers running apache webclient operating system. I use godaddy for this.
  4. Install wordpress into your hosting account. I have a video on this here, but godaddy walks you through this.
  5. Install a “theme”. The theme controls the look and feel of the site. This site uses “thesis” theme from DIY themes. It totally rocks!
  6. Add pictures, written content, videos and lead capture to your site. This is adding “content”.
Here is the video which explains it.
