Need Help to Build Your First Website? Check out This Guide

By Daniel Scocco

There are many people who contact me asking for help to get their first website or blog off the ground. Unfortunately I don’t have time to help all, but I always try to point them in the right direction.

If you are in a similar situation, recently I came across a quite useful guide to get you started. It’s called WebsiteSetup.org, and it comes with information to build a site on three major platforms: WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. If you are feeling adventurous they even have a guide for building HTML5 websites.

I recommend that you start with the WordPress one, as WordPress is by far the most popular platform on the web right now. This blog is using WordPress, for instance.

On every step you’ll be able to choose the option that best suits your needs. For instance, when installing WordPress, the guide will give you two options: instructions to install it manually (which is required in some hosts) and instructions to install it automally (which is supported by other hosts).

You may even contact the author of the guide if you have questions or are facing problems following the instructions. It shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to get your first website up and running, so check it out!

    I wish I came across this blog when I was building my first website tyler-media.com. It was so tough, felt like banging my head on the wall, I wanted to do it all myself to save money. Finally after some time I wisely realized that in order to save money I was actually wasting time. So I had to hire a web-designer to accomplish this task.
