Choose a domain name that is easy to remember and spell or order a free sub-domain from Gauravgo.
Check if the domain name is available, as many websites have been taken by other companies and individuals. Make sure you choose a short, memorable and relevant domain name so it doesn’t get confusing later on!
The next step is choosing a web hosting provider. There are many options out there, but you should look for three things:
Reliability – how long has the company been in business? What kind of support can they give you if something goes wrong? Do they have any history of slow response times or downtime?
Security – what kind of authentication methods do they use (SSL/TLS)? How secure is their server infrastructure, and how many different firewall rules does it have in place? Are there malicious attacks on other sites hosted on their servers that could compromise your site’s security if it’s not properly protected by an expert team of developers who know what they’re doing.

Now that you’ve created a database and a user, it’s time to connect the two. To do this, follow these steps:
Go to your WordPress Dashboard. If you don’t see it there, click on Settings > General at the top of any page in your site (or click here for help).
Scroll down until you find Database Configuration at the bottom of that page and click into it so that all of its options are visible onscreen (see image below).
Scroll down again until you find Database Name under Database Settings and change it from “default” to whatever name suits your purposes—for example, “blog” might be good if this is where most users will store content relevant only to their websites; other possibilities include “photography” or even something completely random like “pizza.” The important thing here is keeping track of what kind would best suit each website’s needs!
Once you’ve decided on your blog format, the next step is to choose a WordPress theme. A good theme will be simple, clean and easy to read. You want one that has a responsive layout with touch support enabled so it looks good on both desktop and mobile devices.
You also want to look for themes that have been well reviewed by other users as well as ones which have good documentation available online (in case there are any issues).
Plugins are a great way to extend your website’s functionality. They can be found in the WordPress plugin repository, or you can install them from third party sources. Before installing any plugins on your site, make sure that they’re relevant for what you want to do with it and how many people will be using it.
Once you have created your WordPress site and added content, it’s time to add pages and posts. Pages are the main part of a website; they contain all of the information about your business or organization. Posts are smaller pieces of information that can be shared on your page.
To create a page:
Go to “Pages” in the left menu bar of your dashboard (top-right corner). This will open up a list of all available pages on your site.
Click on “Add New Page” at the top right corner. This will open up another menu with five options: Current Post, Previous Post, Next Post, Media Library (images/videos), and Archive List (older posts). Selecting one will allow us access to other options within that module only accessible through that particular type of content so don’t worry too much about choosing an option here if you’re unsure what works best for what needs doing!
Use keywords in your title and content.
Make sure your website is easy to navigate.
Ensure your website loads quickly.
Use schema markup on all pages of your site to make it easier for search engines to understand what you’re trying to say (and rank higher). Share posts on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter so people who are interested in what you have written about can find out more about it!
