Do you need a website?

Do you need a website?  Do you want to learn how to 'create' / 'build' a website?

If so, I suggest you look into wordpress.  What is wordpress?  "WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it's probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today. You'll be impressed at how beautiful, and easy it is to manage."  from:  https://ithemes.com/tutorials/what-is-wordpress/

"open source refers to any program whose source code is made available for use or modification as users or other developers see fit. Open source software is usually developed as a public collaboration and made freely available."  from:  http://searchenterpriselinux.techtarget.com/definition/open-source

 

Here are some links to resources on learning about wordpress and setting up your own website using the wordpress creation tool.

1.  It's really helpful to first arm yourself with knowlege about wordpress by borrowing a book about wordpress from the library, here is one such book I'm familiar with, here the link at amazon.com   https://www.amazon.com/Yourself-VISUALLY-WordPress-George-Plumley/dp/1119047757/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497228803&sr=8-1&keywords=wordpress+visually.

2.  Here are some web hosts and domain name registrars  to choose from.    http://dreamhost.comhttp://site5.comhttp://porkbun.com , or http://dynadot.com .   There are many more, I've just named a few.

3.  If you're curious and want to explore wordpress, go to http://wordpress.com  and http://wordpress.org (to download free open-source script). My preference is to have a book in hand, like that book found in #1 before I explore links in #3. 

Note:  there are other solutions for creating website, I've just mentioned wordpress because I've most 'familiar' with it.

all the best,

Simon

p.s. I've heard of http://wix.com and http://shopify.com but are not familiar with them, re: creating websites for businesses. Feel free to look them up.  I am not endorsing any any of the links identify in this post.  Do your own research and decide on the best solution for your needs.
