Creating a WordPress Website that is FREE does not require deep knowledge of WordPress. In fact, you can actually create a WordPress website from scratch!
WordPress is one of the platforms you can launch your business home page or freelancing portfolio.
Many freelancers have been asking about how to create a FREE WordPress Website. To address the queries, Coach Robbie of #FVACentral, Filipino Virtual Assistance Coaching by Robbie Jean Lorenzo shared how you can create it FROM SCRATCH!
Here’s a step-by-step guide in creating your free WordPress Website.
To get started, you will be needing a Gmail account in registering a free WordPress Website. Then, you will go to WordPress.com.
To register, there are three steps you need to do. First, you will input your email address (Gmail account). Then, you will create a username and password. Please take note that your username cannot contain a WordPress word because your registration will not go further.
2. Domain name
Once you’re done with registration, you will be creating your domain name. After you type your domain, WordPress will offer a lot of options but those domain names that are free having a renewal cost are not actually free. Skip those suggested domain names and go further until you see the domain name with FREE but have no renewal fees written at the bottom part.
3. FREE site
Once you have already chosen your domain name, you will be redirected to different WordPress Sites. Everything you can see there is paid, so check on the upper part and look at the start on a free site stating “Not sure yet? Start with a free site”. Click on that, and there you go. Your free WordPress Website is now created but not yet published.
4. Name your site
To name your website, you need to click the pink box. Additionally, you will be inputting your tagline and other needed info then, save settings.
5. Optimize website
After the settings have been saved, you will return to the dashboard and then optimize and update everything there. You will be inputting the needed info like what is your website all about, your business’ vision and mission and many more.
6. Confirm email address
Afterwards, you will need to confirm your email address. To do this, you will go to your Gmail account and check for the confirmation email that WordPress has sent you. Then, you will click Confirm.
7. Launch your site
When you’re done with creating the site menu and updating your homepage, you can now launch your site. When you launch your site, everybody can now see your website.
I hope this step-by-step walkthrough is helpful to you in creating your free WordPress Website.
