Whether you are a business person a paternal business person, an entrepreneur or want-trepreneur as it were, a student learning about web development or programming, or just trying to set up something for your wedding, or just trying to keep in touch whit your friends outside of the FB. Setting up a web page is probably a whole lot easier than you think it is.
I going to assume most people just getting in to it and looking for a video like this don’t know a whole lot about the details of creating a webpage. So I recommend whatever you take from this, start at one of the free services and get familiar with the process of using an interface on a website to take your information and publishing it out on the web.

Cause there are basically two sides to it, one is your content, that’s like your email or the words that make up your email. But how it’s actually viewed by the person who receives it is the client side. So when you’re going in to whatever website your doing you setup how the whole thing looks altogether and then you go put in your content and then after you publish it how it looks on the outside or on the client side is based off how you setup the overall look of your webpage.
So that’s what you have the. You have the formatting, the style, and then the content. And no matter where you go it’s going to be those two main things. Now if you’re on the free side you not going to be able to control everything you’d like as far as formatting and layout, but it gets you familiar with that process and the idea, wet your whistle a little bit, so you can get comfortable and then step it up to the paid version.
Get your free website at wordpress.com. One of them is free and you can host it, you’ll be like supercoolawesomeperson.wordpress.com. Every service has a free, I know there’s wix, there’s Google has their blogspot.com or blog.com or blogger.com , I think they all lead to the same place.
There’s always going to be a free host because they put their own ads and their own money making set up around whatever you publish. So, that’s one of the downsides of using a free place, but it’s a great place to experiment.
Basically when you setup you account, you fill out what the title of your website is, kinda what it’s about, maybe pick some pictures, your colors, and general style that you appreciate and enjoy. And then you just start putting content in.
It’s just like your posting an update, statue update on Facebook. It’s almost exactly the same for a webpage only you own the content. You have the rights to use it, you take it with you. People are going to your address instead of the Facebook.com and whatnot.
Now if you want to go set up your own website you go to a place like namecheap.com spend a little over 10 bucks to register your own domain name for a whole year. Then go to a web host like ipage.com or bluehost.com or godaddy.com or inmotionhosting.com and you pay them a little bit more somewhere between $3 to $10 bucks a month. Depending on what kind of services you want. And do it at a year at a time and badda-bing badda-boom you have your own server.
Your own domain name; your own website that’s fully yours, your control, you design exactly how it looks. You install WordPress on the back end of whatever host you go with and you fill it in just like you did at one of the free places. But you control how things look you can out your own ads up, you can your own products up, and you control it.
That’s basically the gist of it. Start out free, get used to the process, the idea of creating content and working with the website and then move on up to the free. And there are plenty of videos that get into more detail on the paid side, but go free first. Get your whistle wet, and get something out there in the interwebs. Alright, good luck and peace out.
