WordPress! – A Content Management System (CMS):
In the past, people who want to build a website, need first of all to learn computer languages which is very complicated, embarrassing and time-consuming. Nowadays, everyone can create his own website using CMS and edit the website via a user-friendly interface which is very easy to use.
According to Wikipedia, Content Management System (CMS) is computer software that supports the creation, and modification of digital contents using a simple and intuitive interface. In layman’s terms, it allows you to build and edit your website without the need to understand coding.
There are a bunches of CMS in the market, such as Typo3, DotClear, Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, etc… But WordPress stands as most popular. You may have heard of it before. About 30% of the websites on the Internet are WordPress sites (and the figure is rising).
This website is also made and run by WordPress, below are 7 main benefits of having a WordPress website:
1- Ease Of Use: With its intuitive interface, you can build your own website in under 30 seconds. It doesn’t require any coding/HTML or software skills. Just make a few clicks, some drag-and-drop, and you have a new WordPress Website. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, videos, etc. is a breeze and can be done quickly. WordPress do all the behind-the-scenes chore automatically for you, leaving you to just work out how to do the fun stuff like creating content.
2- Highly customizable: The design of your website is 100% customizable, thousands of Website templates, aka “Themes” are available at your fingertips and you can customize the page as you want. All of them has a free version.
3- Mobile-Friendly: WordPress websites are mobile responsive which means that you can easily use websites via mobile devices. WordPress can detect when a user is on mobile, and the website will automatically adjust for mobile viewing. That’s great!
4- You Can Manage Your Website from Any Computer: WordPress is browser-based. As a website owner, you can log in from any Internet-connected computer and manage your site from anywhere in the world.

WordPress plugins make this very easy for beginners; most of them are free.
6- You Have Control of Your Website: No more waiting for your web designer to make simple updates to your website. With WordPress, you have full control of nearly every aspect of your site, and you can easily and quickly make those simple updates yourself.
7- Search Engines Love And Prefer WordPress Websites: When you have your website, your main goal is to get ranked in the first page in Google, Yahoo, Bing and in other search engines to get more visitors to your website. The code behind WordPress website is straightforward, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content. So yes having your WordPress website is a great start.

What About Hosting aka “Storing” Your Website?
Web Hosting is a technology and service that allows website owners to make their website viewable and accessible for online visitors via the World Wide Web.
Websites are hosted or stored, on very special computers called servers (like website’s home). When Internet users want to visit your website, all they need to do is type your website address aka “URL/Domaine” into their browsers. Their computer will then connect them to your server, and your web pages will be delivered to them through their browsers. Basically, without hosting, your website is homeless, so it can’t be seen at all. Every single website you see online has its own hosting.
The popular ones you may have heard of are services like BlueHost, DreamHost, GoDaddy, Site Ground, iPage, HostGator, etc. There are lots of them out there, but not all of them are good. Some brag about how cheap and useful they are but come at the expense of your website’s speed, or security which is a critical aspect of your website!
The hosting service I use for all my websites and I recommend to you is SiteRubix. It stands out from all the other hosting services; it’s powered and managed by Wealthy Affiliate, the best online platform, and community of caring experts for online business. Besides the technical hosting, they offer you with beginner-friendly free pieces of training, webinars, tools and supports to help you set up your valuable online asset and build a legit online business from scratch and step by step — No need to be tech-savvy.
And YES, of course, this website you are seeing is also hosted at SiteRubix and guided by Wealthy Affiliate 🙂
As we saw, your website needs 2 main things – Hosting (SiteRubix) & CMS (WordPress). The website is being hosted at the server, and it adopts the CMS to build it. This is a simple explanation to let you understand their relationship.
After understanding CMS and website hosting, it’s time to learn the actual steps…
