Best Guide to Create Your First Website

By Mark Zeni

If you are planning to start your first blog or website, either for yourself or for your business, you know that the first steps can seem daunting. There is a lot of technical informatin to digest, and sometimes getting one thing wrong can result in the failure of your project.

Luckily there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of tutorials online that will guide you through the process.

If you want a recommendation, this past week I came across a very complete and easy-to-follow guide created by the Template Monster folks.

Called Startup Hub, the guide is divided in two sections: Startup Basics and Startup WordPress.

The Basics section will cover things such as:

-How much money you need to start a new website
-How to choose the right platform for your website
-How to find a reliable web hosting and a good domain name
-If your business needs a responsive website design

The sections are divided into questions and answers, which makes it easy to follow along.

The WordPress section will cover things such as:

-If WordPress is the right choice for your website
-What to choose or self hosted WordPress
-Which hosting to choose for your WordPress website
-The Anatomy of a Perfect WordPress Theme

I was impressed with the quality of the layout and with the information as well, so I highly recommend that you take a look. Even if you already have a website or blog this might be a useful resource to bookmark, for instance in case friends and family come asking you how to get started online.

Check it out.
